Filmmaker Franklin Jitubo's First Long Movie 'Dinner' Hits Cinema

Nollywood filmmaker, J Franklin Jitubo, takes his craft one notch higher, with his first feature length movie titled ‘Dinner’ already showing at the cinemas.

It is his first work after recording impressive successes with the short film, ‘Once’, which screened at the Durban film festival, and the television film, ‘Daisy’s Secret’.

The movie, ‘Dinner’ follows a chain of events that ensued when five friends get together for a dinner party and find out secrets about each other’s relationships and the one person in the middle of it all.

Franklin speaking of what inspired the film, Jitubo said, the story initially came as an idea for a short film and he drew the idea for his new film while on set of a television series.

The accounting graduate turned filmmaker, says his love for movies started from an early age.

According to him, he loved story-telling and enjoyed reading comic books while
growing up, before he transitioned into screen writing in 2012 and later on started producing short films.

Explaining further about the process of film making, he said “once u have a story that is good enough, you can be rest assured that if the technical aspect falls in place, and you have the right team, then you can make a good film”.

When asked about how he was able to get veteran actors such as Richard Mofe Damijo to cast in his film , he said “everyone would be glad to be in a good film”.

However, he explained that it was easy getting RMD to feature in his film because according to him, “I was looking for someone to introduce me to him until suddenly one day, I came out of my house and I met him and we exchanged email addresses".

He said he was able to get some of the cast after an audition while he met others along the line and was able to form a good team for the film, ‘Dinner’.
