American technology and media services provider, Netflix Incorporated has announced that the future of Hollywood is in Africa.
In a tweet on Wednesday, Netflix said, “the future of Hollywood is right here! keep making magic.”
This was in reaction to a thank you video uploaded by the Nigerian trailer making group, Ikorodu Bois after Netflix sent them a package containing camera and others video making apparatus.
The bois, Muiz, 15, and Malik,10 (with video-editing help from older brother, Babatunde), and their cousin, Fawas Aina, 13, rose to fame early this year after they replicated the trailer video, Extraction.
The bois were invited to Hollywood after the trailer caught the attention of Netflix and the lead actor in the movie, Chris Hemsworth, who retweeted the video by commenting, “EPIC.”
