This is a project work in theatre management and it will be focusing on the Role of Continuity in Film Production. Labista as directed by Ifeanyi Oyanbor will serve as case study.
This film Labista is all about a boy whose father was killed by his uncle because of the piece of land he wanted to usurp from him. When the assassins came to kill the boy’s father, he (Labista) escaped. And with the help of a medicine man he got a magical power to avenge his father’s death. At the end of the play he avenges his father’s death but later went to prison.
1.2 RESEARCH METHODOLOGY
In the course of this project work, I intend to sort for materials from the library and from oral interview. The reason why I will be considering oral interview is because very little have been written on continuity and as such the library may not be enough for this research work
1.3 STATEMENT OF PROBLEM
I have set out point out the roles of continuity in Nigerian Home Video since that aspect of production is often ignored.
1.4 JUSTIFICATION OF STUDY
In a society where the Home Video Industry is becoming very popular, it is only fair that effort should be made to ensure quality production and audience satisfaction. But when these efforts are not feasible and obvious mistakes are being noticed every now and then in our Home Video Production, the need to look for way to tackle these problems becomes inevitable. Again this backdrop, the need to x-ray the role of continuity in Home Video Production becomes very important. It is on that basis that I have decided to take up this study.
1.5 DEFINITION OF TERMS
It is important to define some words and terms that will be used in the course of this work so as to fully have a clearer understanding of the context in which they are used in this project.
VIDEO FILM: The Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary defines Video Film as a “magnetic tape used for recording television pictures and sound”. (1998: 1327) I see video film as a performance that is recorded on a piece of magnetic tape for the purpose of playing it back with the aid of equipment called the video machine.
PRODUCTION: The Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary defines production as “the process of producing a film or a play” (1998). Continuity Gail of Nigeria (C.G.N), it was formed to expunged non-professional continuity persons from the movie industry. Association of Movie Producers, the association was formed to expunge mediocrity and amateurism from the Home Video Industry. They are also concerned with the artist welfare and monitoring of marketers.
1.6 SCOPE OF STUDY
This project will be limited to looking at the role of continuity in film production. And will be further narrowed to the film LABISTA as directed by Ifeanyi Oyanbor (D.G.N).
While looking at these roles, I will also consider the merits of continuity in film production. Chapter one will serves as the introduction and it will take a look at the research method as well as scope of study and justification of study. Chapter two will focus on the review of relevant literature while the third chapter will border on the steps to take while working on the continuity of a film. Chapter four will look at the roles of continuity as well as the various continuity errors pointing such errors out in the film Labista. Chapter five will by my recommendations and conclusion.
