Location Finder is a niche technology company that solves the problem of location scouting for production companies and filmmakers. Our solution comes with an all-in-one service, and this is the premium we are providing for the industry.
Production Companies, production scouts and production managers in Nollywood have a hard time finding locations needed for their productions. Many factors come to play in this problem ranging from cost, security, size of locations among other things. The Nigerian Film Industry (Nollywood) is ranked as the second-largest producer of films globally after Bollywood but ahead of Hollywood. According to PricewaterhouseCoopers Nigeria, the Industry is a significant part of the Arts, Entertainment, and Recreation Sector which contributed 2.3% (NGN239biliion) to Nigeria’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 2016. It is one of the priority sectors identified in the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan of the Federal Government of Nigeria with a planned $1billion in export revenue by 2020.
Location Finder will be accessible through Mobile Applications on the Play Store and App Store as well as on the web. The platform will allow location owners known as “hosts” to list their properties for production companies known as “users”. The platform will have locations for varying needs and studios that allow users to tailor their search to suit their needs. Our locations could come with security, unlimited power supply, insurance, and a medical assistant depending on the needs of the user.
