The most recent jaw dropping headline regarding global investments in Nollywood is La Vida Studios $50 million deal with Story Labs in the U.S. My first reaction was whoa. My second reaction was.... Who are La Vida Studios? I've literally never heard of them. It makes me wonder how these big and seemingly monumental deals affect us working writers. Will they do open calls for scripts? Will they find ways to bring diverse and new voices around the table? Or will the same big players keep getting the big deals and use the same cabal of writers and actors that are in their inner circles?
