The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has urged filmmakers to always seek proper approval before using corps members’ uniforms while shooting their movies.

Mr Christian Oru, NYSC Assistant Director of Legal Services, said this in Lagos during a meeting between the National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB) and creative industry stakeholders.

Oru said the illegal use of its uniform in movies would no longer be tolerated by the management.

He also said before using the NYSC uniform in movies, the filmmaker must submit an application letter, stating exactly what the uniform would be used for and must acknowledge NYSC in the movie.

According to him, filmmakers would also have to submit their scripts to NYSC to enable them observe how NYSC would be represented in the movie.

“For any filmmaker that wants any of his casts to wear the corps members’ uniform while shooting movies, we require that you write an application letter to NYSC to indicate your interest.

“We also demand that you submit your script to us for proper vetting to know how NYSC will be represented.

“We know the script is your copyright and we will do everything to ensure confidentiality,” he said.

Oru also noted that administrative handling charges had been introduced for filmmakers before the use of the uniforms.

According to him, the NYSC is open to allowing filmmakers to advertise their movies on its various camp grounds.

“We want a token from what you generate from the production of such movies where our uniforms are used, this is known as administrative charges.

“This is because we spend money to produce these uniforms, we will like to work with you and we promise that we will all be on the same page to ensure we are developing the industry and the nation as well,” he said.
