(Kingston, Jamaica) January 1st, 2011 - With the immensely popular video, "Jeans n Fitted" (Vybz Kartel ft Russian) reaching over 2.5 million views on youtube, RoadBlock Films! has definitely left their mark on Dancehall & Reggae Videos in 2010.
RoadBlock Films currently has video on rotation in MTV Base in Africa (Chan Dizzy's "Nuh Strange Face"), filmed for Japanese Dancehall artist, Scorpion the Silent Killer, received Youth View's 2009 "Best Music Video" for Ding Dong's "Holiday", and has many videos on rotation throughout the Caribbean. They may be a local force, but their reach is global and growing expeditiously.
With the rise of videos in the Dancehall and Reggae genres, emerging artist to seasoned professional are rolling out videos as seamlessly and current as their Hip Hop or Pop counterparts. RoadBlock Films! is honored to be a part of this movement and hopes to continue to provide quality and professional work for the viewing audience.

(Kingston, Jamaica) One would normally associate a "roadblock" as an item that blocks travel on a road; however, when the "roadblock" is added to films, it opens a pathway ready to be traveled.
RoadBlock! Films (RBF) has been quietly creeping through the ranks of video production over the past few years but in 2009, RBF's foundation was solidified with the award winning video, "Holiday" from rising dancehall artist Ding Dong. With 2010 videos such as Vybz Kartel's "Jeans & Fitted", Popcaan's "Dream", Chan Dizzy's "Nuh Strange Face", and the brand new release from Spice "Jim Screechie", RoadBlock!'s youtube views has surpassed the 1.5 million mark.
The crew at RoadBlock! has no plans on stopping at a 1.5 million views. The 6 member force (Kirk Lee, Kerrin Mclean, Marvin James, Otto McLeod, Pierce Mclean, and Mark Nicholson) just released "No Gyal" from Rasco and Flexx, and is currently working on videos for Konshens, Mr G, and a medley on Adidjaheim/Notnice's "Duss" Riddim.
A complete media production company, RBF specializes in music videos, EPKs (Electronic Press Kits), commercials, short films, and TV specials. "RoadBlock! is willing to do any project that we know for sure we can manage in a timely manner." comments Director of Photography, Kirk Lee.
"Timely manner" is very important to the business of RBF, along with their goal of delivering the best quality visual productions at any given price point, striving to work for the love of motion pictures and providing people with a product that will assist their own promotion. RoadBlock! seems to be achieving that goal time and time again.
Recently asked about the state of videos coming out of dancehall and the work being put forth by RBF, DP Kirk Lee remarked, "Well I'm happy to have worked on some great projects, although I always feel we can do better every time, so I'm always hunting for that. The quality of videos coming out in dancehall right now has stepped up overall, its always been slowly progressing over time. I'm also happy that the overall industry is stepping up because we are all going to benefit from it in the long run."
Choosing the name, "RoadBlock" because it was cool and catchy, this team of talented production artists, are proving it's more than just a catchy name, it's a brand that is opening up pathways and will stand the trends of time, video time that is!
