Sensational movie director and producer, Shirley Frimpong-Manso has advised movie producers against the rampant and unrelated use of sex scenes in movies saying they are making the industry suffer.

“People need to learn that if you are doing a sex scene in a movie, it has to be tastefully done because movie making is an art and therefore it has to be done artistically.”

Speaking in an interview with Tuesday after the press preview of her latest work, 6 Hours to Christmas, Shirley advised that people shouldn’t just copy such things because others are doing it.

“If you are going to do a sex scene and it’s related to the story, then fine but if you think that you are going to do a story and if you omit the sex scenes and the story can still stand, don’t use it,” she stressed.

The Africa Movie Academy Award(AMAA) winning director said the major problem is that some producers are using sex scenes as a selling tool, a practise she said was wrong adding, “It is going to make our industry suffer.”

Her twisted comedy, 6 Hours to Christmas which she said is a real life stories of ‘some people’ offered her the opportunity to do something different.

The adventurous Shirley told that it took her three weeks to shoot the movie and wanted to do something different from her previous productions.

“I wanted to do something different; I wanted to write something different…something that was a bit in the head and also the fact that I had a bit of help from other people with their real life stories,” she said, adding she managed to tell the story within a few spaces accounting for the less number of scenes in the movie.

She said her quest to get perfect characters for the movie made her expand her wings to Nigeria to cast Tinsel television series star, Damilola Adegbite who she said played her role perfectly. This happens to be Damilola Adegbite’s first movie role.
