ANGELFILMS-VIDEOBOOK  have (as of August 2016) ceased routine production of DVDs after a continuous run of some 13 years, largely due to the redundancy of the format in 2016. Various attempts have been made to re-launch the genre, but due to the explosion of amateur use of smart phones, tablets, and "intelligent" softwares, it has been decided that there is no commercial sense in continuing. ANGELFILMS -VIDEOBOOK has enjoyed  distributing its films on everything from U-Matic, through VHS/Beta/V2000/ 8mm since 1980, and pioneered the use of VIDEO-CD in Spain during the early part of the millenium. Recent attempts at streaming proved entirely unsuccessful against the flood of competitive, low budget material.
Barry & Angela  would like to thank ALL of their customers and clients from the past 30+ years for their tireless support.
