“Each day you shoot on the atoll with all those extras, we had to transport those people from dry land out to the location and so you're getting hundreds of people through wardrobe and everything, and you're putting them on boats, transporting them out to the atoll, and trying to get everybody in position to do a shot. And then when you break for lunch, you have to put everybody on boats and take them back in to feed them.”
In Nollywood the difficulties of making movies and breaking even at the box office would fit into the Director of the movie Water World (1994), statement. Shooting a movie on the open water is almost always a bad idea, namely because you have no control over the weather or the sea. In fact the cost jumped from an initial $100 to $175 million. Quite a jump and the highest about that time time for any film.
