Jeff, I got the comic, thank you brotherman. What is the other movie. I want to see it as well.

I paid for my two films the same way.  I just think since we are only 13 percent of the US population we have to set our budgets off of that reality.  But too many of us want to make the same money as white Americans who sell to 7 times more people.  I feel we can sell to white people and anyone but if you need them to break even then you are working for them.  That's I write now because it doesn't cost any money only time.

Mr. Greenlee's voice is very typical of many black filmmakers...Peebles, Fanaka, Bill Duke,etc...It's the money and the "crossover appeal" that drives many of todays ethnic directors and producers to mediocre creative status in the industry...Today we live in a digital age where movie making is easier, but one now has to learn and be educated "digitally"...We can have the best intentions and the most creativity, but until we master the likes of "Final Cut Pro" or Adobe AE, or Peak Pro we will have constantly keep trying to catch up. I think that the number of ethnic movie producers, directors,writers, are slowly growing but even to produce the "grass roots" style of movies one needs a thorough education in the basics of digital cinema.....

The next comic drops in a couple of months... been on and off the grind. My 10 year old is playing AAU ball and it's taking up a lot of time and energy with the tournaments and practices. I'm working extra hard on the neters novel too. I'll keep you posted.

 

Again... like that vid, bruh.

If we all thought like Bro. Greenlee, we wouldn't be in the crap we're in now...

No matter how you interpret this, even if you agree or disagree there is a lot of things that you can take away from what he said.

The Fifth Season is coming to TV!

Posted by Stephen Alexander on August 17, 2017 at 5:48am 0 Comments

N.K. Jemisin’s ‘The Fifth Season’ Book To Be Developed As TV Series At TNT!

Now Mr. Hayashi can't complain about there being no other famous black creatives than Delany and Butler. 

http://deadline.com/2017/08/nk-jemisin-the-fifth-season-book-developed-tv-series-tnt-1202150542/

Now who says diversity doesn't sell?! If some yesteryear agent says that, throw this article in their face and say "Are you sure? Now get me TNT's president and NO I won't hold!" 

Of course, this assumes TNT won't screw this up like they did the TFTC revival.

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
