sweat: sweat: Are they that bad? You've given up already and selling ya private stock?smokin:
Not at all Kiskis I decided to become a seller because of demand. I went to my local SWAP SHOP ( Flea Market) and saw the very bad bootleg copies selling like flies, I will sell originals
Oh ok, dont mind me, was just messing wichya
Were you able to get your hands on any Brazilian movies? if so, which one? and did you enjoy?
Not yet, never got round to it as my friend who has a great collection of brazillian flicks is out of town for a while. I'll surf the net and see what's available. Any recommendations?
So how much will you be selling them?
welcome to the family
The swap shop are selling copies for $5.00 each disc. so, if your movies has 2 or 3 parts you pay $10 or $15
I will sell originals for $12.00 regardless if there are 2 or 3 disc in the package,
So you're saying i can buy 3 part movie for $12 dollars right?
Is shipping included in that fee?
wait a minute--!!!
don't tell me this whole "school me on Nollywood movies" thing was just an elaborate set-up for some small-time business venture?
Example: "Beyonce" is a two disc set. you get the two disc for $12.00 "Beyonce Return" is a two disc set, you get both disc for $12.00
"Governor's Wife" is a three disc set, you get the three disc for $12.00
Widow is only one disc, will probably sell for $7.00
shipping is additional if you purchase through Amazon, ( I can't control that ) I've also decide to build my own website, If may offer free shipping in the beginning, but will only be for a limited time
Absolutely not TS, as I mentioned earlier, last weekend I went to my local swap shop ( If you've ever been in Miami or Fort Lauderdale, you definately know what I am talking about ) and saw the lines for bootleg Nigerian/Ghanian movies, that's when I realized there's a market for genre, I made a few inquiries, made a few phone call, found a distributor and decided to give it a try. I joined this forum because I knew nothing of these movies, its only by luck I came across the first two.
i dunno, bruh.... it just sounds mad suspect to me.
do you, though... i'm not gonna hate on a man trynna make his cheddar, but the whole situation just comes off really shady on your part, i think.
Its not like that Bro, just saw an opportunity and decided to take it to the next level, My daughter's friends came over for a visit a few days ago while we were watching one of the movies, they all wanted to see more and more. I was traveling to ATL, had my laptop watching Return of Beyonce in the airport waiting area, the person sitting next to me stood behing me watching the movie, after a few minutes I had a crowd of people standing behind me watching the movie, I had to take out my earpiece because they wanted to listen. they all asked about it, and where they can find the movies. The sisters of my Queen, came for a visit from South Carolina for the 4Th of July, my daughter threw in a movies and Voila ! hooked, Everyone who had the opportunity to see the movies got hooked and ask where they can get their hands on them. put all those together and the light bulb went off.
TAKE STYLE, If you plan to be in so. Fla. anytime soon, PM me your details, I will take you to the local Swap Shop so you can see first hand what I'm talking about. BTW I just saw a Brazilian movie called Bog of Beast, it one you should put on your to see list. I also saw the German movie Grimme Love, A true story about a man who had a desire to eat a human, began his search on the internet and found a man who wanted to be eaten, they meet and well you'll have to see the movie for the rest. Another out of the way (kind of disturbing) but a must see for film freaks is Taxidermia - filmed in Hungary/Austria/France. Very Dark,
BTW guys, I received an email from the moderator indicating i cannot speak in specific or promote my future business venture in this in the forum. if you would like more information, please PM me .
LOL like i told you, FFL... do you. if that's your story and you're sticking to it, i guess i have no choice but to accept it.
BUT look at this situation here and tell me that it doesn't smell fishy:
--you come on to a Nigerian movies forum, advertising yourself as a foreigner... most people embraced you with open arms
--in the 2 months since you first introduced yourself, you never ONCE ventured into the forum to participate in discussions or otherwise act like you are serious about being part of this online community. rather, you stuck to your introduction post, repeatedly asking people to list more and more Nollywood titles for you
(EDIT: okay... i double-checked and realized that you actually did chime in once or twice in a Bollywood thread and two others. but even then, you were STILL doggedly making inquiries about where to buy original Nollywood DVDs in different cities!)
--in a VERY short time, you reported that you had amassed an alarming number of Nollywood titles... more than the average person would ever acquire for solely recreational purposes.
--a few people asked you in shock if you had really watched all these movies. you said that you had, even though you never discussed any of these movies that you had supposedly watched in even the simplest, broadest detail
--then all of a sudden, you've got movies to sell. and not just one or two used ones that you've watched and want to get rid of... you've got enough that you're even thinking of setting up a website and stores on eBay and Amazon!
i dunno, man... if you say that you didn't have any devious plan, then i have to accept it. but i got to tell you: it comes off EXTREMELY cheesy to introduce yourself in a forum and before you're even situated and comfortable in the community, you're already wheeling out some plan on how to make money off the people in said forum.
and i'll admit that i feel particularly offended because i was one of the main people trying to bond with you, thinking you were sincere.
maybe i'm making much ado about nothing, though... maybe you're just a fan of Nigerian movies and you found a way to make a little money on the side from them (which is the American Way) and you are providing a service that some people on this board might even want to take advantage of. if so, more power to you.
nevertheless, i still think it's tacky and shows a distinct lack of class.
oh yeah... otherwise, thanks for the movie recommendations. i'll check those titles out.
Hope you enjoy them
How practical do you think it would be to offer the ability to download the entire dvd on to the pc?
Don't have the know how
I am also as surprised as Takestyle. I thought you were a sincere Nollywood fan, and I took time to prepare a long list of what I considered very good movies for you. Now, I believe that you were doing a survey for a business, without letting us know! Had I known, I would not have gone through the trouble to respond. I feel as if you have abused our good will for your private ends. The pricing of your products on the site is also brazen marketing. This is not good, and we in NR should not be suckers for this kind of approach in the future.
I am sadden you have chosen to believe my intentions were other than what I have stated. I will say this once more ONLY, I AM A NOLLYWOOD FAN! and will no longer defend that to anyone else. Final Answer
