Studio Productions Cost Millions
The rising costs of studio films are often less likely to return a reasonable rate on the investment made.
These projects also involve multiple investors, each with less then favorable percentages of financial return even IF the film generates income.
Our Goal is to Solve That Problem.
Understanding the Product throughout History
The history of film spans over a hundred years, from the latter part of the 19th century to the beginning of the 21st century. Motion pictures developed gradually from a carnival novelty to one of the most important tools of communication and entertainment, and mass media in the 20th century. Motion picture films have had a substantial impact on the arts, technology, and politics.
Understanding the Product throughout History
During the budding years of production, cinema was a phenomenal industry commanding a capitol of over 2 billion in investments during the 1920’s. This was the beginning of studio giants, MGM, Universal, Fox, Columbia, Warner Brothers and Paramount. Over the next 75 years their pioneering advances in film and television created a legitimate multi-billion dollar enterprise… this creation has historically generated a rising net profit, even during periods of recession.
Understanding the Product Today
Today, film continues to grow. With new technologies and production accessibilities, smaller independent companies are able to not only match the quality of the studio giants, but produce them at a portion of the cost therefore maximizing profit and ROI values. In fact, in 2007 North American box office figures topped $9.63 billion which is a one billion dollar increase from 2006. Analysts project on average a one to two billion worldwide box office increase in film return each year . And Independent films brought in over 10% of the total year’s box office gross worldwide.
Discover the Opportunity …
The Motion Picture Association has concluded that International markets will drive global box office to $25 billion in 2010 . That’s double the 1995 total! North American box office revenue alone has climbed 59% from a yearly $4.8 billion in 1991 to $7.66 billion in 2000.
The Film Industry is thriving , and unlike the currently struggling Technologies, Transportation, and even Real Estate enterprises, Film continues to profit World Wide.
Discover the Opportunity …
Sales of independent films to cable and network TV are rapidly on the rise. New distribution methods such as satellite and cable plus emerging digital markets like online video rentals are accelerating demand for all films presenting huge growth opportunities over the next ten years. The pioneering developments in High Definition and Internet based TV promise even greater opportunities for growth. According to Price Waterhouse Cooper, the combined worldwide filmed entertainment market will achieve sales of $118.9 billion in 2009, a 7.1% compound annual growth rate (CAGR ). These increased revenue streams mean increased distribution opportunities, earning potential and decreased downside risk .

We address this by: Performing due diligence to the advertising and marketing standards of the AFMA (American Film Marketing Association), to contribute a competent percentage of budget to distribution and marketing and insure public awareness though highly visible means and measures.
