A new platform called Eezifind is looking to help bridge the talent gap in Nollywod, the Nigerian movie industry by being a job site for filmmakers, actors, and production crews to network, connect, and shoot movies or soaps as the case may be.
This startup wants to be the next job portal for Nollywood
The platform allows interested candidates to upload their portfolios and apply for jobs relating to specific keywords and locations including Abuja, Lagos, London, Port Harcourt and the United States.
According to Techloy, the company claims to house an array of talented people in the creative media industry together with their professional portfolio – something that should be appealing to filmmakers, production companies, or producers who are looking for talent to work with.
The company claims to have attracted leading actors and creative minds in the film industry including Maureen Solomon, Uvi Orogun, Tee Blaq, Obi Emelonye, amongst others to sign up on the platform.
Eezifind will not be the first startup to attempt this feat, back in 2011, NollywoodCasting, a talent resource platform which claimed to aid casting directors, producers and filmmakers to adequately source, locate, and cast performers across the globe. According to a report by Techloy, the setup seemed very promising at launch but has bit the dust for some reason.
