Abel Mutua’s movie makes over Sh4M in 5 days



It has been said that kenyans don’t support local filmmakers and there not willing to pay for content .However, an emerging technology in the content creation industry is changing how Kenyans consume content in a way that is both beneficial to them and the creators.

Able  Mutua and Phillip Karanja recently launched a local film; Grand Little Lie but instead of uploading it on the known content distribution platforms, decided to use their own website.

kenyans across the world were able to watch the film by paying a one off fee of sh 200 without any subscription.

Over 20 ,000 kenyans bought the watch links 5days after the movie was released .This  is arguably the best reception a local film has achieved in recent years. If we were to assume each of the 20,000 plus people paid the minimum fee, this translated to more than Sh4 million.

“I don’t think kuna sinema imekuwa na sales kama hizo,” Abel said in a recent live interaction with his fans on Instagram.

The team had initially set a target of 50,000 people and it might not take long to hit it.In one of his episodes on YouTube, the filmmaker who recently won the Pulse Influencer Awards said that the money would be used in catering for the cost of production including paying the actors.

The new technology is going to change things for filmmakers since it protects the rights of film makers by curbing illegal downloads.This revenue model also removes the dependency on advertising quotas. Ads provide income but require alot of clicks to generate decent money .

From ad-supported content, viewer subscriptions, all the way up to pay-per-view and on-demand services, monetization is the new standard of profitable media delivery and consumption .
