Mamie too dear

hello, u all.
I am a Cameroonian living in Germany. And I would love to watch Cameroonian movies. The problem we have here is that these movies are not made available to us. If there was some way, these movies could be better advertised and made available here, it would be great. There are so many of us here who are willing to buy Cameroonian movies made in Cameroon, but we don't have access to these movies. Can something be done about this situation?
Also, I think it would be a good idea for these Production companies to create a web site. It is the fastest way nowadays to spread information. I don't know if they have already done that, but in case they need someone to do it for them, they can contact me, through this email address. They can get professional websites at very low cost. I think it would be a wise investment.
When I type in search engines on the internet for African movies, the whole page is filled with Nigerian movies. We are Cameroonians and we want to see Cameroonian movies, depicting our culture.
I am so happy therefore to see that this initiative has been taken by these young dynamic people and I will do my best in spreading the word

Rachel

Whatzup you'll?
Glad to see that my country is finally pulling off in the movie industry. I have been waiting for this moment for a very very long time.
Becoming an actress/movie writer, is my dream job, but this dream is being delayed with my stay in the U.S. This is due to the sterotypes being attached to Africans. But I however hoped and prayed for God to do something about it. I can see my prayer is being answered.
Considering the fact Nigeria has been the only flourishing African country in the movie business,internationally, that kind of made me envy them. But now I can look back and see one reason why I should be proud of my country , or even return home-- to help in this business.
One suggestion about the name "Camwood", I believe that is a traditional product. Why don't we just call it "Collywood"? To me and a couple of my budies, that sounds better. But anyway, it's just a (good) suggestion.
To cut the long story short, I believe we shall succeed extremely well in this business, not only because Nigeria would face stiff competition from us, and a decline in the demand of its movies, but also because we (foreigners-Cameroonians or not) are getting tired and bored of the same old stories being extra dramatised. It is also a dream I saw coming.
All I can say is more power to your elbows. Don't give up. It is financially demanding but nowadays, it takes money to buy money. the feww tips I can offer is to create a convincingand good story with a plot, good pictures and direction, and most of all, avoid over dramatisation of a situation. Adding this to what you have, I know you are on your way to succes and international fame.
KEEP PRAYING, AND MAY GOD BLESS AND DIRECT YOU.
LOVE,
RACHEL.

'sup guys,
well i'm a payesans in south africa and i am very glad to hear that 'camwood' is coming up strongly.i c with the previous post of changing the name of camwood to collywood.infact nigeria "nollywood",india "bollywood", etas "hollywood" and i think cameroon should flow with the others.
i am very happy and will be glad to help distribute your Cd's here in south africa.I am a producer (music)and cofounder of o-limit records here in south africa and we've just released an album under the company "ali get's his arms" by Wax a cameroomian artist. we'll be in cameroon in august for the promotion of the album and we'll be glad to wook hand in gloves with magic touch movies but first i must contact the rest of the team.
I am so proud of the show biz going on in cameroon infact i heard u are skyrocketting.and i believe we can try to meet up with the fastet and second largest movie industry in the world.
SO KEEP IT UP GUYS AND KEEP YOUR HEAD TO THE SKY ESPECIALLY IF YOU FALL COZ "IF U LOOK UP YOU CAN GET UP!"

Henry

I really appreciate the efforts and I am awaiting the film's release with all the anxiety it deserves. It is really hightime we stop hiding behind other people's events and face our own realities. From what I gather from the introduction of SWITCHING HEARTS, I believe many cameroonians will do an introspection after watching the film. Courage and cheers to you all! Do not stumble.

hello, u all.
I am a Cameroonian living in Brunei darussalam South East Asia. And I would love to watch Cameroonian movies. The problem we have here is that these movies are not made available to us. If there was some way, these movies could be better advertised and made available here, it would be great. Although i am alone here but there are many cameroonian in malaysia ,Indonesia ,Thailand and singapore who are willing to buy Cameroonian movies made in Cameroon, but we don't have access to these movies. Can something be done about this situation?
Also, I think it would be a good idea for these Production companies to create a terninal of their network to reach South East asia here. It is the fastest way nowadays to spread information. I don't know if they have already done that, but in case they need someone to do it for them, they can get email address is danpullo@gmail.com please contact me so that i can get this movie soon ok. When I type in search engines on the internet for African movies, the whole page is filled with Nigerian movies. We are Cameroonians and we want to see Cameroonian movies, depicting our culture.
I am so happy therefore to see that this initiative has been taken by these young dynamic people and I will do my best in spreading the word

Great thinking people,we are so bless to have idealistic youths growing as film makers, but we lack one thing, direction, every body want to be a boss, i appreciate all of your efforts but it could easily go invain if every body want to make movie, it will be good for some thing small company to merge and put their resources together and shoot great movies, it is strange that alot of film maker are looking for sponsors, who will sponsor who?you guys need to stick together and work hard, rome was not built in a single day and it was not buildt by a single hand.
please i thinkthat camwood is doing ok and i have watch their thriller and teaser it looks awesome. go ahead guys. that is my little contribution.

I live abroad but would be very happy to trsvel home to shot a movie. I can send a CV if you want. I stated acting way back in the late 80's.

CY Wanki

Hi All,
I'm a cameroon base producer/filmmaker, infact my production house, SPLASH NETWORKS did the first international cameroonian movie with Nigerians, PEACE OFFERING.
Let's forget all the talks that the industry is lucrative and bumming, instead we should try to come up with a structure, an umbrella that can cover this immaginary industry.For as of the moment there's no guide to our so call industry, theres not even a name to it, so let's start from down instead of showerng ourselves praises for nothing.Thanks

Etiendem R. Etiendem

Nelson KIMBI

Hi Cameroon,
Why don't we do like the whites rather than immitating fellow africans with a monopoly in the african film market. I jist think that something action, horror and fiction which is my field will atract more fans to oue industry. let us not specialise in one kind of stories, action is not as difficult as you think, it's just a matter of wit and research. meetnelsonkimbi@yahoo.com, nelson.kimbi@yahoo.com

puh issa

Hi GUYS,

Margerita kunnah
