Recently, we announced our three-title partnership with Netflix. Click (here) if you missed it. And if there is one thing that we love about this announcement, it’s the fact that we are currently in the post-production stage of this project. It still feels like yesterday when we were on set with the cast and crew. The enthusiasm and energy were unbelievable!
Nonetheless, as you anticipate this film, here’s a little something to tickle your movie cravings: 8 things you need to know about Swallow.
The Script is Co-scripted by Sefi Atta and Kunle Afolayan.
We already know what happens when two great creative minds come together – and this duo is no exception. Sefi Atta is a Nigerian-American novelist, short-story writer, playwright and screenwriter whose works illuminate the African culture and tradition. Such works include Swallow which narrates the story of a naive secretary whom, after a series of career woes, considers her roommate’s offer to work as a drug mule in mid-1980s Lagos.
Some Scenes will be Achieved with Computer Generated Imagery (CGI) and Green Screen.
Yup! We went all out to bring back the 80s era, and we can’t wait till you see these created scenes.

Remember those badass camera angles and cinematography in #Citationthemovie, well our director of photography, Jonathan Kovel brings it all back and more in Swallow.
