  2. Straight To DVD Highlight of April


    First of all, I would like to thank everyone who supports this website and continues to give it daily traffic for new updates and stories. I am working very hard to research the latest happenings in the Entertainment Industry, as far as filmmaking and television developments unfold. However, sometimes its hard to find good quality black films and I always wonder why that is!

    A lot of romantic comedies like my highlight for today, seem to make its way on to exhibition mode (DVD) rather than the big screen. Unfortunately, in a business which is all about money with a capital M its extremely difficult to get films into distribution. Films that make it to the theater have already accumulated even more debt than the entire production itself, and marketing is just as big of a deal as the Filmmaking process is these days!
