The Nigerian film industry is thriving, despite the constant power outages, lack of infrastructure, the heat and humidity. Nollivud, as it is called here, has recently surpassed Hollywood in the number of withdrawals a year of films. Now this is the third largest film industry after Hollywood and Bollywood. Almost all movies are shot using digital video technology, and usually feature film was withdrawn for 10 days and a budget of 20-40 thousand dollars. Financed films are usually private producers. Because of the low-budget films have to shoot quickly, so time to rehearse and do not retake. But there is a large expanse of improvisation.
