Back these Entrepreneurs!

The Couple the movie, Very Smart Brothas: The Series and ZED1964 – are all great projects by creatives that we feel need your full backing and support! Let us all support each other and make their projects even greater successes!

1. The Couple the Movie  Kickstarter Campaign has launched and as of today 03rd October it has exceeded it’s target, but please do go on and back this project if you are one of those who are tired of seeing Tyler Perry-esque movies (I watch them but still want to see more) and also would love to just see more black independent movies, then we think instead of writing up blog posts about your disdain of Tyler Perry or the lack of ‘good content’ support this great project, because sometimes it us the masses who make this change possible by backing creative projects like this .The Campaign still has 6 days to go and your support is still needed.


You already know we love the two brothas at Very Smart Brothas and we loved their book and now they’re working on creating a tv pilot call VSB: The Series.  The reason their blog has such great and loyal following is because it is well-written so one can only imagine what will go into the TV Series, with the two main character based loosely on The Champ and Panama.

And if you don’t support this Series terrible things are likely to happen – Tyler Perry will remake Love Jones with Chris Brown as Darius Lovehall, he will also remake Boomerang with Rihanna, Chris Brown and Ketomine all in that movie! To save us all please support our guys.

They are also using  the crowd-sourcing platform Indiegogo and you can click here to back these brothas!

    1. Good stuff! Kickstarter is making its way to the UK – looking forward to more UK based creatives using that platform too.
