Ms York has enjoyed distribution in every major video retailer (including Wal-Mart, Blockbuster, Best Buy, Big Lots, & Hollywood Video) nationwide. An expert in independent film production, Tanya York has produced 30 urban, action & horror feature films, creating a genre-specific “faster-cheaper-better” business model that is emulated industry-wide, and has put her at the forefront of the urban crossover movement. She foresaw the rise in global demand for independent films and programming and created a sales and marketing strategy that would initiate lucrative licensing deals for her films in over 100 countries worldwide.

"Tanya York and Randall Frakes gives no quarter in revealing the realities and challenges facing filmmakers in this currently mad and fragmented marketplace. Having written and produced more than a few major films myself, I can assure you that the joys, thrills, humor, and please-god-come-save-me-nightsweat-terrors of making movies are all honestly and accurately captured."
