Abel Mutua’s ‘Click Click Bang’ Rakes In Ksh 9 Million

‘Click Click Bang’, a film by film directors Abel Mutua and Phil Karanja has raked in a total of Ksh 9 million so far according to the two.

Mutua further said that the film has made a profit of Ksh 2 million so far given that their expenses were Ksh 7 million.

“From pre-production to marketing, we’ve used seven million. The returns are almost hitting Sh9 million, so it was successful. We really appreciate because most film projects don’t give back the profit. Most people look for funding abroad.”

Mutua said budgeting for marketing is one of the reasons why the film was successful and that film makers should always include it in their budget.

“otherwise there is nothing you’ll be doing. Because Nairobi only is where people go to theatres to watch movies, and that is not right. We need to rectify that,” he said.

“If there is a film centre in all the 47 counties, they will have pushed us a thousand steps ahead. They need to make sure the infrastructure is around the country.”

In Eldoret, Mutua the movie was shown under a tent.

“If the government could just work on that, we’d be set. And now if they ensured every county had its film centre, we’d be revolutionary.”

Mid this year, the producer and writer said that the movie made Ksh 2.5 million during its premiere in Nairobi.

Mutua had some advice for film producers. “Producers have this thing where they create films then call their fellow producers to come watch. It shouldn’t be like that. Sinema ni ya wananchi, tukifanya cinema tuite wananchi.”
