From the stables of “Superstar”, “Day Of Destiny” and “Elevator Baby”, film director Akay Mason’s “Love In A Pandemic” promises to be engaging, relatable and drama filled. This film has been slated for a 2023 big-screen release.
“Love in a Pandemic” was produced by Kemepade Bedford, co-produced by Vincent Eseni, and written by Bolanle Ayodele, Amaka Chidoka, and Abosi Ogba. In a statement by the film producer, Kemepade Bedford affirmed to Akay Mason was the best director for this project because of his keen eye for detail and his creative flexibility.
On why the production company decided to film a pandemic story, Producer Kemepade Bedford says
“ At the time we got the idea, it was during the lockdown. We started developing the idea but most importantly for us was to tell a story within our budget, that is, without a lot of casts. We felt it was going to be easier to tell a pandemic story from a love perspective. After making some experimental calls, I was convinced that this was the film. “
It is no secret how strongly the effects of the pandemic were on the entertainment industry at large, with millions of naira being lost due to this nefaste health crisis. Kemepade Bedford’s ability to then draw creative inspirations from this global time of “non-creativity, should be commended.
