    The beginning

    Our early productions included the now cult classics “Buckwild Beach Week,” “Buckwild in Brazil,” and “Buckwild 2001.” These DVD productions were the first to showcase the beauty of women of color back when the popular “Girl’s Gone Wild” series was ignoring them. The models from the show were casted for the music videos of superstars like Jay-Z, Usher, Eminem, 50 Cent, Kanye West, Nelly, Missy Elliot and many others.
