Neil Bogart founded a company in the 1970s that he named Casablanca Record and Filmworks. Unfortunately, he died five years later. During that interim period, a number of the company's performers became stars. They included the Village People, Donna Summer, and Parliament. After Bogart's death, the famous Casablanca logo and Rock Steady/Chocolate City label imprints fell into disuse. Years later, Damien Vivona searched for archival footage of some of these performers that had entered the public domain so an inexpensive film could be made documenting this company's brief history.
