Post-production Report on “Crossroads Melancholy”: An Adaptation of Chris Nwamuo’s the Substitute
AbstractPhotographs, sound, music and animatronics, converged as film synergies in telling a story. A wondrous escapism into humanistic adventure; impeccably, replacing stage production with scientific ingenuities. In Nigeria, this maiden academia was to rekindle man’s awareness and sensitization for theatrical ecstasy. The effort dissected a play – “Crossroads Melancholy” adapted from “the Substitute,” written by Chris Nwamuo, (1986), Owerri: Totan Publishers Ltd. ISBN: 978–2503-55–X. Screen time: 64 minutes, directed by the author. A total of six characters charged the theatre cloud. In the film, a widow transfixed by the world and home adversities, found between the devil and the deep blue sea – where succour became a mirage. The pluses and minuses at this theatre experience, will establish a springboard for future exploits in theatre and media studies.
