First of all, thank you for your moral support and compassion and condolences!
Let me comment on some of your ideas before I move on with my plans.
1- I would never release anything without having bought copyrights license. Perhaps I could get away with it but apart from it being too immoral/unethical for me it would not save me too much.
I mean, ok, I would save about 2,500$ which means I'd save 5$ per dvd copy, ok? And instead of 27-28$ I could therefore sell at 22-23$.
Well, I DON'T THINK THIS WOULD CHANGE ANYTHING AT ALL!
I recently cut all my retail prices down to 30-50% as you know.
Result? SALES GOT WORSE.
So, it's not really a matter of cheaper prices.
Maybe I should just keep that 2,500$ and not lower prices at all?
Yes, but that's still unethical and I just can't sleep peacefully knowing I'm illegal and next morning I could find myself in deep shit.
2- I could team up with some other label perhaps, ok?
And share costs and expenses. But still, what makes you believe there would be profits?
I want to share profits, not costs.
Destribution sucks not only for me but for all labels, right?
I don't know of any label flourishing and having profits.
Besides, I'm not so bad a person to want to drag people to MY hell.
3- Release other stuff, other countries?
Naaah! Italian films suck sales-wise.
Only porn and Holywood do well, but then I would never try these genres, would I?
I got quite a few films lined up for future release.
Films I've already bought:
TARZAN KORKUSUZ ADAM
CASUS KIRAN 7 CANLI ADAM
ALTIN COCUK BEYRUT'TA
RINGO GESTAPOYA KARSI
This means I'll be around for at least a couple of more years or more till I gradually and slowly release everything and sell everything.
