Local film industry will change the shooting schedule of top actors in January 2013 to better upgrade the qualities of the films.
In new shooting schdule, the actors have to spend at least 20 days for a regular film, 15 days for a "DVD film", a film that will be released in small DVD theatres, and 10 days on a "direct-to-video", a film that will be released directly to the public without being released in theatrestheaters.
Actor Pyay Ti Oo said there should be a set of rules and someone needs to watch whether the actors follow the rules or not. Those who broke the rules should be punished, so that the rules will be observed effective.
The number of films they are allowed to shoot for every month will also be fixed so that the actors will spend more time on their films.
The qualities of Myanmar films have been declining since when a small little amount of time were spent on the shooting schedule, especially for comedy films that have been dominating the local film market.
The new schedule will take effective only on the lead actors and actresses.
