It features A-list Nollywood actors from Africa and B-list talent from America. The English language ﬁlm, shot in Atlanta Ga., has much higher standards of production than most of its genre and tells the story of an aspiring photographer (Van Vicker) who enters the lucrative world of paparazzi photography and unwittingly captures a major scoop that puts him in the center of the cities biggest murder mystery.

Hoping to be the breakthrough ﬁlm to introduce the fast growing Nollywood subculture to mainstream audiences, the ﬁlm is unique because it is a part of an ongoing revolution in Nollywood ﬁlmmaking where quality is now put before quantity. It features a strikingly beautiful cast, incredible crossover music, excellent sound/picture quality and professional acting. It appeals to a universal audience and is a collaborative effort of Nigerian and American talents and is the ﬁrst to have a theatrical release of this size. The ﬁlm has gotten much support from the previous 10 city premieres from various business, agencies and African press but is currently extending the ad campaign to domestic markets reaching its core fans in the United States. Great Moments Productions is also looking for additional corporate sponsorships for the upcoming 25 city venture and plans to reach larger international audiences in the future.
