Creative Works Take CenterStage24 Jan, 2002 By: Hive News
Emax Net is launching Center Stage, a new consignment distribution site that gives independent entertainment and production companies and recording artists and producers an outlet to showcase and market their music, film and software products directly to consumers globally.
Center Stage will take half of net revenue from direct sales of their products. Center Stage'' features specialized areas for music recording artists, songwriters, film and TV producers and directors and software producers.
"I'm personally aware of many producers who have films stored in their homes and have no outlets to market or distribute their films," said EMAX Studios president Grant Waldman.
To fill that niche, the company set up a cybershop at www.emaxnet.net/centerstage.
"There are countless successful recording artists that have no major record label contracts at this time and they own the master recordings that could be used to distribute and sell their famous songs," said CenterStage chairman Chuck Weber stated. "Center Stage will give the recording artists the opportunity to control their own business destiny for the first time in the history of the music industry."
