How big is your potential? Final chapter.

The Caroll Family

……….Right. You will be doing two things: The first is proving there is demand, so we know we can command. The second thing you’ll be doing is letting Ebonywood Studios know that you are actively behind us and are on the journey too. (It is a fact and a very important one to keep in mind, that most Black British people do not write into TV stations like the BBC and other commercial channels. Maybe it’s because you’re thinking what’s the point, no-one’s gonna listen. But you would be dead wrong. In the ratio of how ratings are worked out, one letter represents a thousand people. But that’s another discussion, for another time).

Right now it’s important that you go into HMV and ask for the film, Jingle Blues Jingle Bells. If they don’t have it in stock, order it. If the shop assisants give you an excuse not order it. Complain, because there is no reason why you can’t have it. None. Pay for it and reserve it. It will come to you and what you give will come to us. Some Shop Assistances in some branches have been quite negative towards our product. They can make it seem like HMV’s Head Office forgot to tell some of the branches that there’s a new Black British family film in the mainstream.

We know it’s not impossible to achieve our goal…….But it will be so much easier with you.

How big is your potential? Part 3

Posted by ebonywood on January 4, 2009

Remember what I said about the Pound? Remember what I said about actions speaking louder than words? Well here’s the real deal for Ebonywood Studio Productions and the mission to serve our friends and families.

 

First, I want to ask you, do you want a Feature Film Production Company, making big commercial films that represent you? 

 

Secondly, do you want to see more images and stories, for longer periods of screen time that reflect your life/existence? 

 

Would you want to be a part of a huge, diverse and powerful organisation that is run/owned by Black British people, that excludes no-one?

 

By the way, when you watch our film Jingle Blues Jingle Bells, tell us if you think the cast is fairly balanced, even though all the leading characters are Black.

 

Trust me. If we can prove there is demand, then your colour will and can command!

 

We know ‘Jingle Blues Jingle Bells’ is a seasonal film. But, it is a historical move, which we should all be a part of. It will take continuity and consistency to ensure the company’s success.

 

We need you to focus your energies (£), here to back and support our move smoothly into our next feature film.

 

By buying a copy of Jingle Blues Jingle Bells, your  ‘symbol of support’, will be doing two things…………..

 

My Mother’s just called, she really needs my help. I’ll back as soon as I can. Please don’t go too far away. This is very important.

Can Black British films exist without guns and violence?

Posted by ebonywood on December 3, 2008

In an Industry, where successful films with a black lead seem to exist from the USA and endorsed by the industry by only recognising the strength of leading actors like Denzel Washington and Halle Berry, for their artistry in strongly provocative roles like, Training Days and Monster’s Ball.  Is there an appetite for family British films?
