A move that can be described as innovative in keeping with its parent company Blue Mahoe Capital; RealVibez in a pioneering move, will hand hold Caribbean filmmakers to create a series of sport/entertainment films geared at bringing additional global attention to the region. 

The novelty of placing characters in stories flying/sailing to the Caribbean for a vacation will now have its own real-life imagery and scenes with its own talent showcased to the world. 

Already known for globally successful athletes (in several sporting disciplines), artistes and artists; “film can become a source of excellence from Tropical Paradise,” according to Carole Beckford, SVP, Blue Mahoe Capital.
