AFM 2013 - What I Learned About The FuTure Of Filmmaking At AFM - FuTurXTV, Funk Gumbo Radio & HHBmedia.com - 12-5-201

”White male demos may still drive the studio at what blockbusters and tent-pole projects are green-lit. But there is a whole world of indie films and low budget studios films targeted at women and minority moviegoers that are now finding new exciting ways to get direct distribution on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Cable and Satellite PPV and Redbox. And with the emergence of social media, like Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, one can create an impressive and effective marketing campaign to promote a film’s release for months in advance of a film’s release date. So now that the promotion and distribution paradigms have changed in Hollywood it allows more women and minorities to aggressively seek out more independent financial sources to make their films than just getting rejected by studios.”

“I Wanted Baby Boy To Be The Greatest Nigga Film Of All Time!”

This LAFF article unfortunately will not go into all the fascinating and interesting reasons why John thought or proclaimed that Baby Boy was going to be the “The Greatest Nigga Film Of All Time”. Nope I have that whole ABFF 2001 Baby Boy Premiere Screening Q&A filmed and one day I will post it on YouTube with running commentary. I only wanted to mention that inflammatory, powerful and controversial quote from John Singleton to make one understand that when I was at this LAFF 2014 sponsored Diversity Speaks Forum with John—I wasn’t surprised at all to hear later on much more similar inflammatory, powerful and controversial and always highly memorable “Pro-Black Hollywood” quotes from him.

We had a great time during Comic-Con 2014 repping FuTurXTV, Funk Gumbo Radio and the GameHawk Mobile App #GameHawkTheApp. We met some great celebs on The Black Panel like Ne-Yo and Cree Summer. And I got to briefly talk to my USC/AAFA alum J. August Richards, who had a really busy CC scedule. Those ultra-bright red pants J. was rocking last Saturday must definitely mean he is going to be in some Marvel films during Phase 3. He could not tell me anything, but I am sure there are plans to use Deathlok more heavily in maybe “Avenger 3” or “Captain America 3”!.

LAFF 2014 ARTICLE - DEAR WHITE PEOPLE WHO CONTROL THE FATE OF “DEAR WHITE PEOPLE” MY 3 BIG MARKETING SUGGESTIONS – 7-15-2014

So the day after the LAFF DWP Premiere there was a teaser trailer released for Dear White People and a week later we get a new DWP parody Web short. So after hearing Justin’s BET Awards answer, seeing DWP’s recent viral PR videos and dealing with aftermath of HHBMedia.com being denied access to the Dear White People Red Carpet. I then decided to post-pone writing my film review of Dear White People and instead do a lot of research about how DWP at LAFF 2014 was tracking on the Web.

I would like to now give the white executives at Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions and Justin Simien my very simple three minority film marketing tips, cultural observations or Hollywood/Indie Black film survival lessons for the marketing of Dear White People:

DMW Games – LA GAMES CONFERENCE

2014 –Event Review Part One – 5-5-2014

 5-5-2014 - Written By David L. $Money Train$ Watts – FuTurXTV – Howard Hobson – Funk Gumbo Radio – Raymond C. Reed – Global Media Village – Auggie Cavanagh – FuTurXTV Partners David Velo Stewart & Brandon Bowlin

First, I want to give a big shout-out to Ned Sherman who organizes and runs the DMW Games LA Games Conference 2014 on May 1st at Hollywood‘s Roosevelt Hotel. Ned just the previous month pulled off the highly successful debut event of Digital Entertainment World (DEW) 2014. Ned made the wise and gusty decision to cut down the usual two day Games Conference to one day. I felt this was smart because it provided a greater sense of unity for the speakers, press and attendees. But there was a glaring omission to this year’s LA Games Conference that has to be asked: Where was Oculus Rift? The hottest new VR gaming company and new gaming platform in Southern California has to be at an event called LA Games Conference. I know Oculus Rift was big hit at last month’s GDC and I fully expect it to be a major hit or booth sensation at next month’s E3 Expo.
