As it turned out, the Nigerian film industry is thriving, despite the constant power outages, lack of infrastructure, the heat and humidity. Nollywood, as it is called here, recently surpassed Hollywood in the number of recordable movies a year. Now it is the third largest film industry after Hollywood and Bollywood. Almost all movies are shot using digital video technology, and usually feature film is removed in 10 days, with a budget of 20-40 thousand dollars. Funded films are usually private producers. Because of the low budget films have to shoot quickly, so time for rehearsals and no retake. But there is a great scope of improvisation.
