www.DaysofWrath.comP&A (PRINTS & ADVERTISING) INVESTMENT PROPOSALCelia Fox Entertainment LLC8307 Grandview Drive, West Hollywood, CA. 90046 CeliaFox@gmail.com
Investment Outline Foxy Films has invested 15 million into the production and completion of an action gangster film entitled “Days of Wrath”. All previous contracts have been resolved and the Company owns the clear chain of title.• Foxy Films is looking for an investor to fund 18 million in P&A (Prints and Advertising).• Investor’s cash flow would start to come in 75 days after theatrical release. It will take one full year before investor will be paid back the majority of his money with interest. Please refer to the cash flow chart.• Investor(s) will recoup money first and an interest rate of 12.5% per annum. After the investor recoups his original investment, and receive 10% back end profit participation.• The investment funding will be placed into a bank account specifically for Prints and Advertising of Days of Wrath. This account will be accessible online for the investor(s) review. Foxy Films will execute the P&A marketing plan and P&A itemized theatrical budget.• Foxy Films plans to employ a major studio to release the film in over 2,000 screens in United States and Canada. We will simultaneously release the film internationally as well. The top three theatrical chains in the U.S. consist of Regal, AMC, Cinemark along with a few independents, depending upon the market and city.
Film Time Line1. Foxy Films will sit down with distributors (Summit, Warner Brothers, Sony, Lions Gate etc.) and negotiate a Service Deal for Days of Wrath. A distributor is hired on a “fee for service” basis and is contracted to distribute the film. This deal places the Investor a step higher in the revenue “food chain,” by minimizing the Distributors share from 65% (or higher) to 15% in the U.S. theatrical market and triple the revenue in every other market. This will be especially significant with respect to DVD sales and profits from all markets worldwide.2. Foxy Films will then sit down with Twentieth Century Fox and Sony to discuss the DVD, On Demand, and TV release of Days Of Wrath. We will then determine which company offers the best deal as both companies have already expressed great interest in distributing the DVD of Days Of Wrath. They will not receive an upfront fee rather negotiate a percentage of the profit from sales. We look to procure the distributor for DVD distribution for fifteen percent or less.3. The film’s soundtrack contract will be finalized. Universal is interested in doing the soundtrack deal although Foxy Films will also be sitting down with Universal Republic, Motown, Fontana, and Interscope to negotiate the best deal.4. All Product Branding and Integration will be either in negotiation or finalized by the first few months.5. All vendors will be contracted: General Marketing with our media buyer, Latin Marketing with Arenas & Clear Picture, Urban Marketing with the PMI Group. In addition will contract our; Poster House, Trailers, Online Marketing and Publicist for Television, Radio and Print.6. At this point (thirty to sixty days after funding), we will have a Theatrical, Home Entertainment and Soundtrack deal signed with a release date. Everything from this point forward will revolve around the release date for the film – which will be the priority of Foxy Films, for the next five to six months. The next phase in the U.S. is to make the project as visible as possible through product placement and original marketing concepts. Now, we will explore options for foreign sales, since the deals we have mentioned so far, will cover the USA and Canada.

One SheetSynopsisIn one of the most advanced cities in the most advanced country in the world, the law of the jungle still applies. “Days of Wrath”tells the story of gangs in Los Angeles, the media who exploits them and the consequences of both. Byron Gordon, ahandsome, wealthy playboy owner of a struggling Los Angeles television station, KIND, finds reporting on gang warfare good forratings and good for profits, but he finds much, much more—a gang leader son he didn’t know he had, threats and danger from agang boss that could destroy him and his business, and a love that he finds when he least expected it.Urban/Action/Gangster Films - Box OfficeIn 2009, box office receipts were well beyond the 10 billion dollar mark, which has never before been accomplished. This was thesecond year that U.S. ticket sales have posted record-breaking numbers.

Celia Fox BioThe Foxy Films CEO has been immersed in filmmaking and entertainment since her preteens, whetherwriting and directing short films or producing her own theatrical performances. Not long after herarrival in Hollywood from her native Philadelphia over a decade ago, she chose to forgo what had beena successful run of “L A Underground,” her one-woman show, to devote all her attention to movies.She wrote and produced her debut feature, Wasabi Tuna, starring the late Anna Nichole Smith andformer Saturday Night Live alum Tim Meadows, which became an instant cult-hit.She was inspired to write her next feature, Days of Wrath, after meeting with actors who had comefrom gang lifestyles. Celia made her directorial debut with film stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, WilmerValderrama, Taye Diggs and Laurence Fishburne. Once again, the industry has taken notice: Not onlyhas Ms. Fox delivered an authentic portrayal of the effects of gang life on gang members, their familiesand the community at large, as well as the media’s role in covering those effects.Citing filmmakers like Ridley and Tony Scott and films like Man on Fire, American History X and TrainingDay as influences, Ms. Fox has dedicated herself to producing the kinds of stories usually reserved forbig-budget studio slates, but at a fraction of the cost. Whether delivering feature films or televisiondramas, her Foxy Films banner signifies the presence of a new and very loud voice in Americanentertainment: “I’m always focused on telling stories that the mass audience can relate to. Stories withaction, pain, conflict and eventual triumph. Stories about our human condition, no matter what welook like or where we call home. And now, Hollywood had better get ready. It’s a new day, and womenare leading the way.”

Marketing StrategyGangster films are morality tales of pursuit of the American Dream and success stories turned upside down inwhich criminals live in an inverted dream world of success and wealth. Often from poor immigrantfamilies, gangster characters often fall prey to crime in the pursuit of wealth, status, and material possessions(clothes and cars), because all other "normal" avenues to the top are unavailable to them.Presently, given the surge in the domestic and foreign theatrical box office, we feel it is the best time torelease this film theatrically. Jeffery Dean Morgan, the star of Days of Wraths last film, ThePossession, released August 31st, 2012, grossed 49,130,154 domestic and 27,561,295 foreign.The multi-ethnic and multi-cultural nature of “Days of Wrath” lends itself to a myriad of marketing anddistribution strategies. This film will be marketed to the largest going theater audience which are Caucasianmales and Latino males under twenty five. Analysts say that compared with other groups, Latinos are the fastest-growing segment of the movie goingaudience and buy more DVDs. Figures showing that 37 million Hispanic moviegoers bought 300 million ticketsin 2009, a per-moviegoer rate of more than eight tickets a year, the highest of any ethnic group.Every movie is different and the promotions department must figure out what type of campaign will be themost effective at reaching their target audience. Based on this research, the movie marketers decide howmuch of their budget to spend on each different media outlet.
Marketing StrategyOpening weekend has become so important, that most if not all of the publicity and marketing iscentered on breaking out from all the “noise” in the marketplace that weekend and attracting thebiggest audience, even audiences who might not have wanted to come see the film as their first orsecond choice. Most big-budget movies are marketed to the widest audience possible, so ads blankettelevision networks, online, newspapers and magazine, but theres no focus. Chances are that withevery blockbuster movie marketing campaign, millions of dollars are lost on people who would neversee the movie, no matter how good it is.* Our solution is the niche buster, a smaller movie marketed heavily to a highly specific audience.Around the same time that the first trailer hit the theaters, we will unveil an official website for thefilm. The website allows visitors to view multiple versions of the trailer, watch behind-the-scenesinterviews and mini-documentaries, read plot synopsis, download cell-phone ringtones and desktopwallpaper, play games, chat in forums and even pre-order tickets. The official movie website is only thebeginning of a much larger Internet marketing campaign.
Marketing StrategyWe plan to roll out favorable press coverage in newspapers, magazines and on entertainment TV shows, asthe release date draws closer. One of our main movie publicity tactics will be the press junket. At a pressjunket, journalists, entertainment reporters and movie critics for our specific niche are flown out to a speciallocation for a day or weekend of interviews with the stars and creators of the film.Weeks before the movie opens nationwide our promotions department will start an all-out publicity blitz.The idea is to bombard our specific audience with so many images and promos for the movie that it becomesa "cant miss" event. Movie marketers will plaster the sides of buses with huge ads, place billboards allaround the city, run tons of teaser trailers on TV, place full-page ads in major newspapers and magazines, andthe movies stars will show up on major talk shows, all marketing heavily to our highly specific audience.Another marketing strategy will be a publicity stunt, an orchestrated media event where we place “wantedposters” all over our cites of Danny boy at barber shops, grocery stores, light poles etc. to make our charactera real person and draw further attention to the opening of the movie.
