What is Public Performance Rights (PPR)?

The Exhibition or  Screening of this Video in a Public Setting requires the venue, establishment, or in some cases the individual to secure an additional license, The Public Performance License.

BWP PRESS, Los Angeles, CA… Indie Filmmaker Bob Bryan has proudly unveiled his seventh powerful installment in his multi award-winning GVerite' Docu-Series entitled GV7 RANDOM URBAN STATIC: The Iridescent Equations of SPOKEN WORD.  He is releasing two (2) versions:   An Unofficially Rated "G" Version for General Audiences, Schools and Libraries and the Original Unedited  Version for those who do not mind some “raw street vernacular.”  Both versions will have a Running time of two (2) hours.  Released under his BRYAN WORLD PRODUCTIONS, LLC. indie label, GV7 returns to the enigmatic world of Poetry. This time around he retrieves the perspectives of fifteen (15) uniquely talented poets involved in the world of  SPOKEN WORD. From Grand-Slam Champions to Open-Mic Veterans, GV7 crosses all

philosophical, racial, and social lines becoming the quintinessial SPOKEN WORD documentary.


Bob Bryans’ last documentary GV6 THE ODYSSEY explored the point of views of 31 contemporary Literary Page Poets and de facto became AMERICA’S Number # 1 Indie Produced Poetry Documentary.  Bob is very, very confident that poetic magic will strike again with GV7 his brand new feature-length foray into the  uncompromising world of SPOKEN WORD.  


GV6 THE ODYSSEY deals with those Poets who write words for the page, while GV7 RANDOM URBAN STATIC  probes the reality of those Poets that write  for the stage. SPOKEN WORD has

really connected with todays’ youth, principally because the poetric artform speaks intimately to their

love for performance art, suppressed passions, subjective psycho / social issues and the cultural attitudes concerning the world in which they live. Poetry is an invaluable tool that helps them to unravel, clarify, articulate & document their experiences. Of course Hip-hop has allot to do with the flavoring of this SPOKEN WORD communication paradigm.”


“I was thrilled to be able to get the Poets to decode and discuss their intimate hopes & desires, as well as their deeply personal disappointments and frustrations with the current state of hip-hop.  Not all the

poets shared a deep abiding love for hip-hop in its current incarnation.  Many of the Poets feel that

Hip-hop has within it's grasp the potential to be a positive catalyst for massive personal & social change. They feel unfortunately that its potential  has been severely underdeveloped and in some cases perversely denigrated by some of its commercial practitioners.”


“But at the same time other poets in GV7 openly discuss issues of date-rape, the courage to be an artist, t

he psychological repression of women, How Hip-hop can help or Hurt, HIV-AIDS & homosexuality,

image vs. reality, obsessions, race-consciousness, anorexia, self-love, the high-jacking of black mens' masculinity & vunerability, disappointment with God, insanity, self-loathing, inspiration and salvation. Noone can say these poets tread lightly or try to avoid issues that we all, in some way or another

grapple with.  It's what makes this expression so relative, ”  says Filmmaker Bob Bryan.

Sure, the dialogue can be ruff, confrontational and passionate; but their intentions are real. These artists are desperate to get through to you!

SPOKEN WORD POETRY  is a commitment movement with vast transformational possibilities    between the poet, the audience and the unrealized future.


“Black men’s strength & redemption lies in their vulnerability.”
