Your help is needed in order to build the first truly Haitian video streaming platform where you can stream HD quality videos of any Haitian movies or programs on any devices anywhere in the world. As we are in beta phase, your continued supports and memberships are very important to us. With these supports, we will be able to start creating original programming for kreyolnetflix. Actually, we are in the process of filming new series, short documentaries, interviews and movies for the site exclusively. Please do not give up on us as we definitely need all the support we can get to turn Kreyolnetflix into a power media house for the Haitian community. We consider ourselves, the Netflix version of the Haitian community. This interview is an example of some of the original contents we will be creating soon on the portal for your enjoyment.
Thanks to Mr. Joel, Kreyolnetflix is in the process of converting into digital files 10,000.00 VHS tapes of Haitian programmings. Since 1987 I have known Joel, he used to collect and sell Haitian programmings of any genre to anyone in the community. At the time, Joel used to sell me VHS tapes of programs from Telivision National D'Haiti, Télé Haiti and anything, whether documentaries, films, live carnivals, and any other programs that might be of interest to me. Joel used to go all over into the community to sell those VHS tapes. That was a side business of his and a hobby. In the span of 25 years of more, he has amassed quite a bit in term of collecting these VHS programs for future reference.
One day, Joel called me and asked me if I wanted to take over his collection. I said ok no problem. He took me to a delapided garage of a friend of his where all the VHS tapes were stored. I was surprised to see and count 17 barrels full of VHS tapes of Haitian programmings dated back since 1940's or way back to now. I was very delighted to take possession of such treasure for the Haitian community. As I explained to Joel, this is not an easy task. First of all, I need to warehouse those barrels in a better environment and gradually preparing and converting these tapes into digital format to be uploaded on YouTube. The task is enormous and slow. I am pulling 3 to 5 hours per day almost reviewing, watching, editing, converting and uploading these programs to be uploaded on kreyolnetflix YouTube's channel.
Frankly, I am glad Joel reached out to me. As I said to him, this gesture to the community will not go unheard. I will make sure that people know about this man and his contribution to the archive of this company.
On behalf of the Haitian community, I extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to Mr. Joel for his donation to the company.
