Prince Kojo Hilton, rare artistic gem in Ghana’s creative art industry, has indicated that people are yet to understand and appreciate the work of an Art Director in our part of the world.
In an interaction with Sammy Flex on Atinka TV’s Entertainment City show revealed that he has indeed been privileged to have broken through as an art director.
The artiste who worked as a scenic Artist with Hollywood Director of ‘The Matrix’ In Kenya in a report by Modern Ghana about 2 years ago, was quoted as saying, “I had a call from a production crew asking me to do a 3D for a yet to be shot Hollywood series using Jean-Claude, Van Damme as a car. I did and sent it to them. Out of the many works they gathered, Van Damme preferred mine so the team contacted me.”
Prince Kojo Hilton who is better known for constructing the walk way used for the state burial of Ghana’s late president, John Evans Fiifi Ata Mills, has revealed that his career, does not attract the attention it deserves in Ghana.
He explained that “Ghanaians do not really understand this kind of work”.
When people want to shoot a clip for their music, they first think of the production house and the ‘hot girl’ that will appear in the video, but what they are missing is the creative touch that features the effects, cultural relevance and the aesthetic qualities that viewers look out for in a video.
Quizzed on how lucrative his career is, he said, “that is an issue for another discussion”.
