When the director and the directing crew see how friendly you and how humble you are, they will put you in their mind any you may end up getting calls from the them no matter the distance.

How To Be In Nigeria Movie Industry Nollywood and How To Become A Nigerian Nollywood Actress Or Actor
This is how you can be in the industry, nollywood industry is an association and like every association they have members and for you to be a part of the nollywood you should register with nollywood. It is AGN, Actors Guild of Nigeria. It is the body where everyone who wants to be a part of the industry registers and become a member. Either a member or a active member; but first you should register all capital city in Nigeria have AGN headquarters where you can register. And each state registration fees veries because of the job inflow. If they hardly shoot movie in that state, the registration inflow will be small and state like Enugu, Lagos, Abia, Anambra, they all have the highest price in AGN registration fee.
Note this important information on the form of AGN: AGN do not provide job for her members. That is no one will provide acting slot for you. You have to hunt it for yourself and survive in the industry.
Due to the above notification I will advise you to look for a movie industry that will like to have a member and also register with the director or the owner of that industry, because if that industry has a job, they will first consider their members before they can get anyone outside the industry. No not say I have never heard of the name of the industry, because you do not know when someone will want to use that industry to shoot an important movie that will not just blow your name but the industry as well. Register and keep in touch. That is how you put your eggs in different basket.
I will be drop a number of a director which you can reach and ask to register in his industry and wait patiently till you are called to and be on their movie project. I would like you be fair to yourself, do you want to be in Nigerian Movie Industry?
