‘Adams Apples’ Chapter 10 Is Here…What Is Your Take + The Success Of The Movie Series!

Posted on 08 May 2012 at 1:21pm

When the whole Adams Apples’ journey started, many wondered how Shirley Frimpong Manso and her Sparrow Production team would be able to tell a story in 10 chapters without excessive dragging, without unnecessary scenes and most importantly, keep the interest, fun and momentum going…

For those who thought it could not be done, they have done it and soon, Chapter 10 of Adams Apples will hit our screens.

Throughout all the fascinating 9 Chapters seen so far, Sparrow Production has kept the ‘sexy, sassy, wahala’ theme intact. There isn’t a single chapter where the fun and fascination were lost. In fact, it got more interesting as the story unfolded with plenty ‘wahala’ poppin’ up here and there.

As we wait for the final Chapter (Chapter 10) which will climax the long but interesting journey into the world of the Adams’ family, let’s look at how the story was told and the creativity behind the developments.

One thing that makes Adams Apples’ outstanding and also alienates the works of Sparrow Production from that of other movie houses is packaging. The branding and creativity that go into all Sparrow Production movies is superb.

After making a movie, the presentation or packaging to a greater extent determines its success on the market.

If you look at all the trailers that came with Adams Apples, the video for the sound track, the official website for the movie, the advertisement banners and Tv commercials, you will see why Sparrow Production stands exceptionally tall among the many movie production houses in Africa, hence, the success of their movies.

Behind all the well branded art work, creativity and outstanding concepts that came with the movie was Ken Attoh who worked tirelessly as the Creative Director of Adams Apples.

As a Creative Director, Ken perfectly made sure the look and feel of the ten chapter movie series ‘Adams Apples’ mirrored all what the Director-Shirley Frimpong Manso had imagined….It is easy to have imagination of how you want things to be, but transporting your imagination into reality is the true work.

Fast behind Ken Attoh to ensure that perfection was achieved as far as the packaging. presentation and branding of Adams Apples’ is concern were David Narh (Art Director), Godfred Grant (Head of 3D and Animation), Ivan Ayitey (Graphic and Sound Design) and Andrew Nyakpo (Web Developer).

The Sound Track & Video

A conventional hallmark of  Shirley Frimpong Manso and her Sparrow Production’s movies is their accompanying classy music videos.

Adams Apples kick started with a well defined music video which correctly reflected the “Sexy Sassy, Wahala” theme.  Apart from the indisputable sweet voice of the musician they used (Efya), the video was a world class standard.

The Casts

The cast of the movie include: Yvone Okoro, Jocelyn Dumas, Naa Ashorkor Mensah-Doku, Anima Misa Amoah, Ajetey Anang, John Dumelo, KSM and many new exciting faces.

Majid Michel, Roselyn Ngissah and other talented Actors made appearances as the story caught more fire.

Costume & Location

One can overlook and miss a lot of things in life, but when it comes to Adams Apples, the perfect African prints and the magnificent locations that were colourfully displayed throughout the movie cannot be missed or ignored. A lot went into this part of the production-something Shirley Frimpong Manso always get RIGHT.

A Quick Recap Of How The Story Developed…

It started with Chapter 1 ‘The Family Ties’ which introduced us to the Adams family and their ‘wahala’  but interesting way of life.

Chapter 2 ‘The Twisted Connections’  also brought us extra ‘wahala’ with Jennifer trying to conclude a house sale with her new young client and things taking a dramatic turn, spiralling events out of control and deepening already strained relations with her secretary.

Chapter 3 ‘The Musical Chairs’ came in with hell breaking “loose when the Adams’ sisters caught their mum and the unassuming Screening locations and times teacher-Albert together at a hotel.

With Chapter 4 ‘Torn’ the story became very interesting with unbelievable scandals and more ‘wahala’ as ‘five different people dash marathon-style towards an emergency room, one after the other, to open up a new chapter in the busy lives of the Adams.

Then came Chapter 5 ‘Duplicity’ which answered the question; ‘So what do you think of the Adams?’

Chapter 6 brought us ‘New beginnings?’ something Ivy preferred– she made up her mind that it will be better for her boyfriend’s old memories to stay buried while they create new ones together.

In Chapter 7-Confessions, friends and Enemies were forced to eat together at Michele’s dinner whiles she tried desperately to avoid her boyfriend’s mother.

Chapter 8-Fight Or Flight gave Michelle the opportunity to hear the truth behind Albert’s cold attitude after three days and thirteen missed calls.

In Chapter 9- ‘Rescue Mission’  “The Adams women pack their wishes, worries and wahala and take us on a 3,175 mile first-class journey around the globe to save the missing-in-action Jennifer. But before that, there is still plenty palaver to take care of at home.

In this penultimate chapter, one woman’s downfall will lead to a voyage of discovery, reunion and an astonishing revelation that will remind all that the story is not yet over.”

Chapter 10- Coming in few days

‘Adams Apples’ is written and directed by Shirley Frimpong Manso and produced by Ken Attoh.

Jocelyn Dumas Donates GHC 1000 To Korle-Bu Hospital Children’s Ward + Talks About Proliferation Of Celebrity ‘Foundations’

Posted on 27 Dec 2011 at 2:05pm

Actress and host of Visat1 ‘One Show’ on Boxing Day, December 26 donated GHC 1000 to the Children’s Block of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra.

After the donation, excited Jocelyn she told GhanaCelebrities.Com, “The reason why I’m doing this is, I think because Christmas is a time of giving and giving selflessly. I thought about what to do this time around. Yes I did the partying and everything else but I realized that, I need to be able to impact certain lives or do something to put a smile on someone else’s face. I was blasting on my twitter that make sure that this Christmas, make sure you put a smile on some else’s face and I thought why not the children.”

“There are lots of charities out there… I mean I could definitely start my own charity but I’d rather donate into existing charities because it’s the same thing – it’s a good cause. So why not the children?” (more…)

Grand Opening Of ‘Adams Apples’ Chapter 4 Is Tomorrow, Interesting But More Wahala!…You Can’t Miss Out On This!

Posted on 15 Sep 2011 at 12:17pm

Chapter 4 of Shirley Frimpong Manso’s ten chapter cinema movie series ‘Adams Apples’ will receive a Grand opening at the SilverBird Cinema tomorrow-Friday, 16th September, 2011 (8pm/9:45pm).

In Chapter 4, the story becomes very interesting with unbelievable scandals and more ‘wahala’ as ‘five different people dash marathon-style towards an emergency room, one after the other, to open up a new chapter in the busy lives of the Adams.

Jennifer plays the good friend as she accompanies Linda to a doctor’s appointment. She is rewarded with the charming Dr. Nate. Who knows? This gentleman just might be Mr. Right, instead of that school boy whom she believes “seems to have evaporated into thin air.” The vengeful Ivy however teaches Jennifer she might have spoken too soon, when she ambushes her with an unbelievable scandalous story!

An unplanned rendezvous the night before destroys Kukua’s chances with Denu, just as they are about to take the step that could wipe away the past and bring them together for good.

It’s hardly any easier for Mrs. Adams, who struggles with her conscience, at war with all common sense and advice on keeping her long-buried secret hidden. The only one for whom things seem to turn out okay is Baaba, who is working things out with her eager husband. But wait, there’s a new arrival in town- and skeletons might just start falling out of the closet.’

If you are in Accra and its vicinity and have already seen Adams Apples’ Chapter 1,2 and 3, you cannot miss out on tomorrow’s Grand opening of  Chapter 4. You surely can’t let the extra ‘Wahala and excitement’ pass you.

Remember, you do not have to see Chapter 1, 2 and 3 to be able to follow, understand, appreciate and fully enjoy Chapter 4 of Adams Apples. (more…)

Photos + My Sincere Thoughts On Adams Apples London Premiere: Great Movie But Bad & Cheap Organization, More Like My Village Community Centre Concert Organization…

Posted on 18 Jun 2011 at 12:12pm

It would be absolutely absurd to re-echo how great ‘Adams Apples’ is since this has been done several times on here, precisely when the chapters were premiered in Ghana. You can click here for that.

However, I sincerely cannot depart an inch from what was said in the linked post. I perfectly understand why it is a ten chapter movie, it could perfectly pass for fifty chapter movie; the twist and suspense are enough to make you want the movie not to end.

Shirley Frimpong Manso perfectly understands what her audience want and she is exceptionally great at delivering that without any dilution. The movie is on point and the reaction from the cinema hall yesterday firmly affirms that.

The best part of all is that, the large crowd that were seated at the Odeon Cinema could relate and were headedly fixed into the movie despite the fact that the weather was terrible.

Who was in charge of the organisation for the London premiere of Adams Apples? I would be exceedingly disappointed if the person or whatsoever company that handled the premiere still has a job today. (more…)
