Haitian DVD movie prices dropping to $4.99 Retail
Haitian DVD for only $4.99 Retail? Are you Serious?
This is a new idea being tested by the Haitian American Association Of Filmmakers.
"Better movies for less," says HAAF president Raynald Delerme. He believes that dropping the retail price of Haitian movies will increase sales and profits.
"More people will buy Haitian movies," he says, "at $4.99 per DVD, sales could quadruple."

Haitians are always complaining about their Haitian movies, some complain about quality, others complain about content, but many complain about the price.
The average Haitian DVD movie retails for $12 to $15, the same price as the big Hollywood blockbusters that cost millions to make.
If you go to a retail web site like AllHaitianMovies.com you can buy it for as low as $5.99
Part of the price you pay for the new Haitian DVD you just bought covers the high cost to print and package the DVD.
We've been told that packaging a DVD in Q-Pak, an attempt to curve the bootlegging problem, adds to the reproduction cost of the DVD and it didn't seem to solve the bootleg problem at all...
Consumers have no conscience, they just want to save money... More for less... that has always been the driving force that fuels capitalism...
HAAF president Raynald Delerme believe that prices can be dropped to $4.99 retail and everybody wins.
- The Haitian consumer will buy more DVDs
- The retailers will make more money since they will be selling a larger volume
- The filmmakers will make money because, no matter how much the DVD retails for, their cut per DVD is usually miniscule; hence, more DVD sales will definitely boost their income.
The HAAF is coming up with a new idea that will reduce the packaging cost of their DVDs and they want to pass the savings on to you, the consumer.
What about the Haitian movie distributors how will their be affected?
Well... If you consider a person who is ordering ONE HUNDRED DVDs a distributor, than we have a lot of them.
Unless you can place an order for 10,000 or more DVDs and distribute them to all the Haitian retail stores, barber shops, restaurants, an other Haitian swap meets in ONE large geographic area, you are a retailer my friend, KINKAY... se nan laye wap vann...
There are more the 1 million Haitians living in the USA and Canada and when a movie comes out, on average, only 5,000 to $10,000 DVDs are printed.
