Have I got a fish tail for you!
If you had a choice between an animated asparagus teaching a Sunday school lesson produced by a realtively small, and up until recently, financially strapped studio from Chicago, or a big Hollywood conglomerate with a big league director and starring a larger-than-life blonde pop-star in a bikini, which would you choose?
First, consider the hype, ballyhoo and (free) media attention given to Madonna’s swept away. Yet with all of Hollywood’s fauning over this ‘Whore of Babylon,’ the film has only grossed slightly less than half a million dollars.
Compare this to a relatively unheralded animated flick entitled Johah: A Veggie Tales Movie, which in its first week grossed 12 times more than the aforementioned shipwreck (that’s $6mil kiddies). Not bad for film that only could afford to open in theatres located in the South and Midwest.
My point?! Remember folks, image is nothing, compelling content is everything!
P.S. Yes it is in now Rockville. Anyone want to ‘blogs4god.MEETUP.com‘ with me?-)
