  3. 3. Synergy Services Foundation--a non-profit organization formed 1999, was created to serve people every- where, impartial to race or locale. Its Mission is to serve the world by spreading and sharing healing and high-technology human services, which lift humanity’s daily ‘state’. Synergy Services performs this through a unique philosophy. Our intention is to fund humanitarian ventures that transform society. This means funding Medicine, Technology, Entertainment, Education, and the Arts. In short, we will finance projects which feed humanity’s body and spirit. Below, you will see a description of our entertainment venture, meant to provide an alternative to the current degraded violent programming purveyed in our daily media. PROJECT SUMMARY Mystic Traveler is a stunning concept in filmmaking and film marketing. It is science fiction with a twist --an epic adventure in metaphysics. It’s an historical drama whose story line includes mysterious paranormal powers. Just as ‘the Force’ in the Star Wars trilogy captivated audiences worldwide, Mystic Traveler will take audiences to a place we’ve rarely seen before-–inside of consciousness. Our Milky Way galaxy is the starting point. But the Cosmos and its history, is the background. However, the film begins in the near future, then, travels back to 1000 BC. At one point, this film travels to before the big bang. We witness the birth of thought and energy, which expand to a starting point for our Cosmos. The epi-phenomenon of personal consciousness is presented as the tapestry, which gives life to our cosmic experience. The Mystic Traveler trilogy is filled with high-adventure and romance, extraterrestrial struggle, the death and resurrection of heroes, and…the eternal battle man has with his own Self. It is an archetypal adventure. It has a similar spectacle as The Lord of the Rings trilogy or Gladiator, and it has the galactic quality of the Star Wars trilogy. Our writer takes great pride in utilizing historical events with actual veracity. The inspiration the film-story brings, and the “feel-good” lift it delivers have only a few counterparts in films past. With September 11 and Middle East crises, we need the images this film provides. This is modern film making at its ‘leading edge’ digital best. We’ve engaged the services of well-respected filmmakers who will also answer the question that has been like a grail-quest for many decades in filmmaking. “How can you assure yourself a larger profit Now when releasing your film? Is there a way to Double your profit?” We believe we have the answer. Of course it takes having a Mystic Traveler to make that claim. This is not your standard ‘cop-buddy’ movie. Nor is it a run-of-the-mill comedy, romantic comedy or teen-farce. This is high-concept epic film making. This is science-fiction with worldwide even galactic borders. It also takes the time to have a purpose. Its mission is to exhilarate the audience. So, how shall we propose to do this? First, make the segments of Mystic Traveler simultaneously. Like the Lord of the Rings trilogy, we save money on each creating the production schedule just once, and with the highest quality available to filmmakers. The Production Values will be upper echelon. The acting, directing and producing will be at the best level of creativity because our committed filmmakers are engaged in a multi-year Labor of Love-- a labor that will please everyone else too. We will use efficacious filmmaking strategies, locations, and technologies to make our budget as reasonable as possible, without sacrificing quality; so we will shoot in Europe. At 163 million-Euro dollars to make 3 films, 4 soundtracks, 3 Video-Albums and Novels, we even look reasonable (compared to today’s reported studio film-budgets). Note: The 163M Euro budget also includes funds for film Ads and Soundtrack--Video Album Ads. Many films made in the Hollywood Studio system where costs spiral out of control, have film-budget scenarios in excess of our Independent film budget which is sufficient to make 3 films. For example, the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the last two Matrix films were made side-by-side at once, and the studios spent over 300 million in each case almost a decade ago without marketing costs included. With our new movie Video Music Albums and our Coffee-table Top Photo-Journal of these epic films (with screenplays included) we will also create new Profit Centers never A Motion Picture Production of Aquarian Entertainment, LLC 3

So many films now (even the most successful ones) are in theatres for a shorter time than most realize. This is true because there are so many theatres in America--so many multiplexes. The newest Batman made a half a billion dollars in 3 months, as Ironman made near 400 million similarly. Spiderman III made similar money--garnering over 240 million dollars in two weeks. The previous Pirates of the Caribbean II and DaVinci Code made between 170 - 200 million in their first week; and after four months in release, each exceeded 1.2 billion dollars in revenues at the worldwide box office, without any other profit centers yet included. These films had a built-in audience. Matrix Reloaded, Spiderman III and Star Wars–Attack of the Clones were released on 5,000 to 8,000 screens. The newest “Star Wars III--Revenge of the Sith” was released on 9,000 screens, making $154M in the first FOUR days. In the recent past, a 4,000 screen-release was outstanding. Before that, 2,000 to 3,000 screens was the standard for a major release. Since the advent of the multiplex however, films like Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Jurassic Park III, and the films named above, have seen profits soaring into the stratosphere of $250 million to near $400 million in just 5 to 8 weeks. This is conspicuous profit making in a short period of time; and…it is just U.S. profits (before the film goes to the rest of the world). Although, it has been a well-known rule of thumb, till recently, that the rest of the world’s profits very often equal U.S. profits. Recently we have seen the rest of the world’s income surpassing US profitability on several films, such as Troy, Last Samurai, and Alexander. As more country’s film industries grow, and their film-goers increase, the rest of the world’s profits becomes a significant area on which to focus. Make a 21st century quintessential film… of an archetypal ‘world-story’… and you Win. When the marketing people for Mystic Traveler, along with our Ad campaign, Theatrical Trailers and Cast Interviews all inform the public, we are releasing the films within a few months of each other, it will become a media and filmmaking event. This release concept should actually improve marketing. It could even increase ticket sales (at least for those films deserving to employ the strategy). It’s quite a concept. Can Mystic Traveler claim to have a built-in audience…and desire many Screens? Yes. Mel Gibson’s film Passion of The Christ (a film in a similar vein as ours) in 9 weeks of initial release, made near $375 million dollars; making money faster than any film in Hollywood history, also putting it in the top 6 movies of all time. His DVD release in September of ’04 garnered over 250 million in 2 weeks time. Imagine if Gibson’s film had had a sequel. What would the films have garnered together with that audience having a sequel to appreciate? To date his film’s approached a billion dollars world- wide. This is very encouraging to us as we have the same story to tell, yet in an entirely different and inspiring presentation. And by making 3 films, releasing sequels within 4 or 5 months, we will compound our profits rapidly. Gibson’s success with “Passion” proves once again there is a vast group of filmgoers who are hungry for metaphysical material in their film going. It was The Force in Star Wars that captured people’s imagination. Often people do not realize that Star Wars is a metaphysical film. It’s also why we see so many new TV programs with special powers present in the characters. We like gifted people and super men. We like the paranormal. Approximately 175 million people go to a Christian church each Sunday, even though 240 million people call themselves Christian. These people and regular moviegoers as well, have presented their case to filmmakers with this commercial success, “make movies for us too.” Our intention here is to serve this metaphysically excited market. So, in making Mystic Traveler we not only capitalize on the sci-fi Film-Genre above, creating tremendous profits in a proven motif—(which regularly outperforms all other genres) but we also create a tripling effect in our profits. We do this by releasing the sequels when most filmgoers have seen the 1st chapter. The Mystic Traveler films are effect-laden adventures in space and time and consciousness. They’ve got galactic settings with cosmic parameters. They’re truly films in the tradition of Hollywood’s mainstream. We just absorb them -- with wide eyes. Adding Mystic Traveler to the list of Hollywood’s epic film adventures, where the film’s promise is actually commensurate with the audience’s expectation…is our intent…and That is our expectation. Our unique approach to film-release may even create a new format for filmmaking in the future. A Motion Picture Production of Aquarian Entertainment, LLC 4
  5. 5. PROFIT OPPORTUNITIES TRIPLED Make 1 6 hour film … and release it in 3 segments”. Make 3 U Ticket Sales from each moviegoer. Make 3 U Pay-per-View profits on Cable and at Hotels, etc.. Rent 3 Video DVDs at Blockbuster and video stores. Make 4 U Soundtracks (an orchestral one and three ‘popular’ ones as well) Make 3 U Video Albums Make 3 U Novels Make 3. Coffee-Table Top Books Rent 3 3 films to HBO, Showtime, Starz/Encore, Cinemax and all the cable/movie networks. Make 3 U Rentals to all the TV Networks U It’s a concept that’s as entrepreneurial as they come, having Over 31 profit centers. Simply put, it makes money Now … when all evaluation actually occurs. Another film technology recently introduced in the film-industry is a brand new state of the art post-production process, which can turn normal 2 dimensional flat-image-movies into ‘three dimensions’. Disney’s Monster House July 2006, was presented in this new technology. Journey to the Center of the U U Earth, 2008, also was released in this stunning process. This film process is far different than the 3-D people remember from 40-50 years ago. It is all based on the digital dot matrix in modern filmmaking. It becomes like a large picture window on the world where the ‘depth’ goes deep into the background of the image, making it very realistic. An article in Scientific American, June 2006, explained the new technology as transforming the movie experience for audiences that witness it. Directors who have seen scenes from their own films in this new 3-dimensional process have sworn off 2 dimensions-- including George Lucas, Peter Jackson, Steven Spielberg, and Jim Cameron to name a few. Why would directors present in two dimensions, when they can shoot in Three. This makes it ‘special’ to go to the theatre again, and it gives the theatrical movie-going experience something that cannot be achieved at home or anywhere else. This is the first quantum leap in visual film presentation in 50 years. It is needed by the industry, as some people watch movies from their easy chair with their home theatre systems. The process will cost about 4 million Euros per film, yet discussions are already present in the industry which suggest adding a few dollars to the ticket price, for all films in 3-Dimensions. Our film will be mostly shot at studios in Ireland, and also Spain, who expect payment in Euros, which is why we require their currency. So Mystic Traveler will be ‘in line’ with the newest cutting edge film presentation which the great directors will work with. We will be on the leading edge with our film presentation too. The final dimension to this strategy…is the other “market” that does not normally go to movies: U the ‘metaphysically-minded market’. It could end up being a wildcard, creating special profit ratios. They could add millions of Ticket Sales that are not normally present. So, even if sales are average (but compounded in a 3 Film release) and enhanced by this wildcard market, U.S. profits could rise into an stratospheric realm. When our Music soundtracks and Video Albums, Novels, Pay-per-view rentals, Home Video profits, Coffee-Table-top-books (with script inside) are factored in, or when we compute the rest of the world’s film-income, well…perhaps we should just consider that, without words. We at Synergy Services Foundation--the films’ parent, will fund the production from, Aquarian Entertainment, LLC, which is creating the films. Now, we invite you to discuss this endeavor -- an endeavor in humanitarian entertainment. Following, is data on the film’s synopsis, summary, its budgets, and profits. The question is, would you want to be involved in a production like this? A Motion Picture Production of Aquarian Entertainment, LLC 5
  6. 6. MYTHIC and ARCHETYPAL FILM MAKING Mythic stories are always popular. They’re enduring, exciting. Archetypal stories of mythic journeys, great darkness, climbing impossible mountains, meeting overwhelming opposition and reaching for the stars, excite the child in us all. The “Greatest story ever told” is a description of the archetypal Jesus story. It may be humanity’s greatest story of enormous effort, powerful personal sacrifice, defeating dark forces, redemption, saving the day, and coming back with the long-awaited fire. Mythic stories actually resemble Jesus’ story--What is that shining light in the night sky? One motivation for writing this new 21st century Jesus film was to capture the imagination of our youth, regarding his incredible persona and story; but from a heroic point of view, not a religious one. The fact is Luke Skywalker was patterned after Jesus, as are many characters. But the story of Jesus is odd in a way, because of its gaps. In the Bible we learn of his birth in one paragraph then a few lines later we see him for brief moments as a 12 year-old (“confounding the teachers of the temple with his wisdom”); then…we see him next, a few lines later, as a 30 year-old man starting his ministry. We all know the story of his ministry, but what about the first 30 years of his life? … well, they are called ‘the Lost …or Missing Years’. However, there is a surprising amount of literature, legend, oral and written history regarding Jesus from several continents and many nations of which many people are not aware. They make for great storytelling and better filmmaking. There are tales of Jesus in his youth briefly in the British Isles, with who the Talmud calls ‘his Great-uncle’, Joseph of Arimathea, a tin-trader. In fact, William Blake wrote a poem postulating Jesus in England. There are tales of Jesus’ travels in Egypt, Kashmir, India and Tibet, where he’s said to have studied with masters of the day. So our writer being a student of the Bible and history both has created a telling of Jesus’ youth that is not only credible but likely, if this literature is accurate. In any case it makes for excellent film-entertainment which is our goal. It is filled with epic adventure, mystic places, romance, ancient mentors, space brothers, shipwrecks, brigands, Arabian caravans, Tibetan snowfields, and monasteries at the top of the world. These films are an incredible spectacle, yet remarkably, not religious ones, as this film is not about religion. This is the Hero Story at its best. A young man in the first century lives in the desert (just like Star Wars Luke Skywalker) he grows to manhood and ‘changes the world’ (galaxy). He’s a powerfully Centered and gifted youth. ‘MYSTIC TRAVELER’ -- SYNOPSIS The film opens in deep space--blackness. Then we see our Milky Way galaxy from a great distance. We get closer; it is beautiful, then we enter it, seeing spectacular images. We arrive at Earth and an Essene spiritual village. The camera leads us to a focus on the maiden Mary, in meditation. She is in reverie, having a meditative vision. The camera goes up into her eyes and We see Her vision. At the end of film III, after witnessing a most remarkable, stunning and unexpected conclusion to the films, the camera pulls away from her eyes and her beautiful placid Face, and we realize we have just witnessed Her meditation--not a depiction of life but a spiritual Vision of her Heart. She softly smiles, quietly says, Yes. First she sees a mysterious white haired older gentleman, Mylin sipping coffee in a 21st century café, U U in Enniskillen, Ireland. He’s telling a story to listeners of how the Lost Ark of the Covenant--an ancient communication device -- came to rest in Ireland. As he tells his story, the movie audience realizes that he has lived the story. We see him like a Merlin Character--protector of the Ark, and Spiritual mentor. He tells us of a person from long ago, who came to earth from a place of Light with a mission to end an invasive influence, poisoning human consciousness; creating slavery and hatred on earth. This mystery person ‘beamed’ to earth, being born into a family in Galilee, to practice the purifying life of the Essene Spiritual Tradition. We see this young child Jesus grow up in this ancient tradition, studying at Qumran- --the Site of the Dead Sea Scrolls. He prospers there in knowledge and awareness completing an extraordinary Elder-Initiation - while only being 11…amazing even his Essene Masters. At 11 he’s invited to travel to Ireland and England, (a source of gold and tin for Palestine) with his great uncle, Joseph of Arimathea, a tin-trader of great wealth. He teaches the youngster about business on the journey, as well as the ancient history/mythology of their people. In Ireland, Jesus is invited to dinner at a castle, to meet the secretly protected Royal family of Israel (who Mylin saved at the fall of Jerusalem in 586 BC). This fact of ‘Israelite royalty in Ireland’ is also historic. He also meets Mylin--now A Motion Picture Production of Aquarian Entertainment, LLC 6
  7. 7. over 600 years old. Mylin comes specifically to meet and give training to a youngster ‘from afar’. The next day, they go off on a week-long horse back adventure, seeing ancient ruins, hearing mystical secrets, learning of galactic powers, Druid priests, and the hiding place of the Lost Ark. He is wide-eyed and awed by his adventure. He learns of spiritual-physical disciplines only gifted students receive. Next, traveling with the Royal family through the Irish Sea, the young Jesus rescues a drowning Princess washed overboard with the rising up of a storm. After these travels, Jesus returns to Israel, where his family attends the week long Spring Holy Days in Jerusalem. This is where he “confounds the teachers of the temple with his wisdom”. At this annual meeting HE represents all Essene-Elders… SO…at this meeting Elders from other spiritual disciplines such as the Pharisees, have to accept his presence. However, they try to embarrass him, testing him. But without guile, he innocently confounds their attempts with startling erudition and mystical knowledge. The scene is magical. We then ‘Dissolve’ to his 18th year. We see his strength and adroitness as a youth escaping intended injury from a Roman “accident”. We feel his relations with family and neighbors. We see his father, Joseph, now older, and meet his 6 younger brothers and sisters, mentioned by name in the Gospels, ages 8 to 17. They help Dad in the carpentry/building business. We get to know his family and their affectionate ways. However, his father Joseph suddenly passes-on and so, Jesus becomes the head of the family, and its business. Soon, his uncle comes once again asking permission of Jesus’ mother, Mary, if he might take Jesus on a caravan to the Far East, to develop a silver-mine there. The wealth they need to survive 1st century realities will be theirs. The caravan trip is agreed to. On this journey we witness a series of special experiences, which Jesus passes through. We see Jesus save a group of friends from brigands; he also meets a youthful beloved Soul Mate, an Indian lass--Tera, who is exactly his age -- sharing even his birthday. The love story that ensues is one of the truly deep, innocent tales of Love that filmmaking has seen. As biblical verses say: ‘he’ll pass through all aspects of human experience and temptation just as everyone else does’. His remarkably mature and centered nature succeeds with wisdom and grace. The trip is indeed successful, as he creates security for his family’s financial needs. He then ends his stay being invited to a monastery in the sky, in the highest mountains of Tibet, where he learns the inner quantum secrets of Time-space and Matter-energy. Mystic Traveler II-III lead us through his incredible training and departure from the east to a port, taking a sailing ship to the Gulf of Aqaba…and on to Judea and Nazareth. Then, when he arrives home, we go through a jubilant family reunion, and a most refined, dramatic exposition on 1st century politics--of Roman occupation, Jewish rebellion and widespread spiritual longing--more an historic and metaphysical adventure. Jesus’ passage through questioning into Agreement and then full-blown Engagement of the mission is spectacular. The special-effect images that persuade him toward his purpose will be incredible sequences. The 40-day Fast/Temptation is going to be a visual presentation unseen in any film before. The film’s healings and miracles will be shown with 21st century digital effects. As a Master of time-space/matter-energy he performs amazing deeds that only an individual with ‘Quantum Energetic Knowledge’ could achieve. Even Jedi knights would be awed by his power. His Spiritual mission, without sanctimony or pretension becomes one of the most coherent presentations of spiritual philosophic thought for Individual souls that we’ve yet seen. As he teaches, it’s not about birthing religious dogma but providing a Path of resistance-less living. He teaches balancing Action and Response regarding life’s losses and victories. In short, he teaches Harmony with Life-- moment-to-moment. His purpose--demythologize Pharisaical religious facades (said to govern these matters) and he then reveals and opens up their Awareness to truly realized Spirituality. A film truly shows it. The famed betrayal of his mission is beautifully explained. The frightening Death is agonizingly agreed to; and his departure is seen in a unique manner never before considered. The film allows us to see his mission with a new perspective—“to live peaceably in our outer experience— by living from that place within us, where ‘wonder’ dwells.” From now on, whenever we see a ‘Sparkling light in the night sky’ we may pause to ponder its meaning. When measuring violence Now we may see through its weakness. This is a film for the 21 st century--one that deserves to be seen. In Mystic Traveler Time and Space are malleable wavelengths of energy…Consciousness is the medium. This is a different kind of filmmaking. A Motion Picture Production of Aquarian Entertainment, LLC 7

  9. 9. FILM PROFIT-MAKING PARAMETERS When you have Three film ticket-sales on a 3 film release, profits can essentially triple. Here are some facts about profit potential. This is just US profits not the whole world. It is also based on 45 million regular US filmgoers that exist here. The following projections are not based on a ‘glowing optimistic scenario’, where all 45 million regular filmgoers attend our films, but only 45% of them--less than half. Regular film-goers are defined as those people who attend movies monthly or weekly. These estimates are not guarantees but projections. The Average US ticket now costs $8.00 but industry insiders say the price in a few years will be $9.00 (including kids, seniors, matinee, and adult prices all averaged together). “3-D” ticket prices will probably be 3 to 5 dollars higher.  Fact one: there are approximately 45 million “regular movie goers” here in the U.S.  If all of those go to see a new/popular film (and no one else) the film makes about $405M. (That’s tremendous. That’s a ‘blockbuster’; and that’s earned in 6 months, inside the US.)  Profits are shared between the Theatres [approx.50%] Distributor [approx.15%] (with independent financing), and Aquarian Entertainment, LLC and its actors/crew [approx.35% ].  Let’s assume only 45% of the regular film group, goes to our films, i.e. 20M @ $9.00 ea. (That’s approx. $180M Gross, now, multiply ‘times Three’…for 3 Films…then you have $540M). That’s America’s box-office without other profit centers included--OR the rest of the world’s Box-office. Compare this to the new ‘Batman’ film, which made Over $500M U.S., even before the DVD release. Now, there’s a Wild Card market of 240 million metaphysically minded people in the US who are a potential market for us. Why? Because these people believe Hollywood does not really make films for them. With this project we will give them THREE within six months. Please assume just 5% of this market (who do not normally go to films) Go to see our Film. That’s 12 million people. Multiply that by 3 (for 3 films) that’s 36 million tickets @ $9.00 ea.-(that’s $324 million more dollars of profit). By conservative estimates, this totals $864 million in just the U.S. By comparison, Mel Gibson’s ‘Passion’ box-office grossed in the US over $375M, with just one film. Now…the rest of the world’s box-office profits are often said to Equal the US market. Many films in a Sci-fi, special-efx, or Adventure genre (as opposed to romantic or teen comedies) are popular in all cultures, so international profits should be excellent too. TRUE SUCCESS  If the film becomes truly popular it improves (you get Repeat Ticket Sales); Or, you may have greater numbers of regular film-goers attending (more than just 45%) Or larger numbers of metaphysically minded people attending (more than just 5% of them) then, the sky’s the limit for profitability. This is just the United States. When we take World profitability into account, it becomes a proposition in substantial returns, particularly on a “three Film release”.  The profits above do not include a Music Profit Center where we have estimated our grosses at $173M-- an excellent profit based on multiple music products. This $173M of gross profit includes triple Music albums and it includes triple Video Music Albums, which WE uniquely have, and is a “first” in the film industry. It’s a new profit center with very little cost to us. We will take film footage from the film (which we will already own) and edit it in behind each of our soundtrack songs. This will allow people--young people most likely, to SEE the music from the film while they listen to the music…but on their DVD player at home on TV, or in-car DVD players, on I-pods, etc..  Of course, we will have standard CDs for Auto and home usage too. On a page below are spread- sheet projections and they are more detailed and complete than the previous page. All projections are not being presented as guarantees of earnings but projections. The projections on this page also do A Motion Picture Production of Aquarian Entertainment, LLC 9
  10. 10. NOT include personal DVD sales or rentals, which are like making a 2 nd film release [or perhaps equal to a ½ film release]. ‘The Passion’ grossed over $250 million in just September 2004, only weeks after the video’s release. We have assumed our DVD sales to be similar to Gibson’s film to date, except that we have three films in the DVD marketplace, not one. Because much of the Income from these Film and Soundtrack scenarios is plowed back into fulfilling the foundation’s entire purposes, then we’ll be able to fund its other missions -- while serving the educational/inspirational ones too.

Producer: Bono Theme song: Bono & Tim Rice (‘Lion King’ fame) The creative music principle behind this Soundtrack’s song selections is simple—use music that is appropriate for the film and, this music will mostly be from popular music of the recent past although having a New song (composed just for the film) will be added. 32 songs are planned for 3 soundtracks so one original song could be added comfortably. All the songs selected have Melodies that are inherently beautiful, if not infectious. The lyrics are truly appropriate for the film (and the scenes they specifically relate to). These songs have been selected with great care. Since most of the music will come from the past, it will All be ‘Re-recorded’; not only to bring the “sound” into the Present…but to have current artists, who are popular Now record them—making them seem New. We can also make the ‘sound’ of each song, appropriate for the feeling of the scene that it relates to. It is probable that many of our songs will actually be new to younger listeners. Another benefit to this ‘re-recording’ is the film company will own the Soundtrack’s publishing rights (along with the original composer of course) and Profits will not have to be split up with old publishers from years ago. It should be noted...other than Opening and Closing Credits songs and occasional instrumentals only 3 songs in 32 are played on the screen during the movies. This is not an opera. The songs do appear on the music album (along with a Film Underscore album) and…they appear on the Video Albums. This new video Music-Marketing Profit Center will essentially be Music Videos on DVD for home consumption, so people can watch the movie music (related to a perfect scene) as well as listen to it. We may even have the lyrics on the bottom of the screen in the DVDs. These videos will appear on MTV or VH-1 as well, creating crossover Marketing & Profitability, increasing ticket sales for the Film and Music store sales both. The Christian community will be very interested in these albums, as they are rarely marketed to by the film industry. It should be noted that Mel Gibson’s “Passion” soundtrack went Platinum in the first month, and all it included was orchestral music. We of course, have not seen the final result of DVD Video sales and rental success on “The Passion”– it will make money for years; (although in its 1st 2 weeks it made grosses in excess of $250M); AND…predictions have been that millions will buy a copy for the home movie library. With our production, we will of course have 3 films for people to purchase, for their library. So the Music-Video profit centers are summarized below: 1. Soundtrack Album for Mystic Traveler 1 2. Video Album for Mystic Traveler 1 3. Soundtrack Album for Mystic Traveler II 4. Video Album for Mystic Traveler II 5. Soundtrack Album for Mystic Traveler III 6. Video Album for Mystic Traveler III 7. Mystic Traveler I-III Orchestral Underscore Soundtrack from our proposed John Williams composer. Other Profit Centers include DVD rentals and Sales of the films…at Blockbuster, Net-flix, Red-Box stores and such like. What this means is Home Video Profits are tripled as well. 8.

  11. 11. 11 Next … Pay-per-view Profits are tripled as well… Hotels, Airlines, Cruises, On-Demand 12 Mystic Traveler 1 Pay-per-View 13 Mystic Traveler II Pay-per-View 14 Mystic Traveler III Pay-per-View A PROPOSED CAST LIST An interesting aspect to the casting in these films, is that even though there are 12 disciples and several other main characters, each has only a few scenes in which they are highlighted; So even though there are many they’re all required for just a short time during filming…for their high-lighted dialogue. Other Jesus films of the past have seemed to care little for the interestingness and fan appeal of the disciples and the various members of Jesus’ group. The disciples in these other films all seem to be scrawny unshaven Italian men who are somber or lifeless, and dressed in sand colored burlap sacks. We will not make this mistake. The actors playing the individuals in “Mystic Traveler” are all going to be unique characters with personality, intelligence, camaraderie, humor and strength. The women in his group will be powerful, attractive forward thinking females. The costuming will give each character, his or her, own uniqueness. When one realizes most of these actors will indeed have very Key roles…but with only a few lines in a few scenes, one can see how the expense will be reasonable when asking for just a few days of their time. It may become a trend to be one of the characters in our 21st century production Jesus story. Along with the salary for each, we will set aside a good fraction of profits, for the well known ‘name’ actors who are in our film, playing smaller roles, to make it worth their time and talent.

Ironman made near a quarter of a billion dollars in 3 weeks time. The most recent “Batman,” 2008, earned over 500 million dollars in 3 months. The DaVinci Code, 2006, made $1.2 Billion in 4 months at the worldwide Box-Office. Conservative claims create solid feelings of confidence because with just one film, regarding just the ‘tortuous last 12 hours’ of Jesus’ life (garnering an ‘R’ rating) Gibson’s Passion neared a billion with fewer ‘centers’ over 3 years time. Children’s ticket sales were lost to the R rating. Imagine profits with a PG rating. Our $1.5b projection would be a multiplier of all profit-centers over 5 years on 3 films. Films make money over decades of continuous showings in all media, making constant profits on every showing in these media. A spreadsheet on these profit projections follows. However, this $1.5B 5 year projection is only the United States; it does not include the rest of the world, in the profit centers in all those foreign territories, who are just as eager and maybe more so to buy a piece of history…with beautiful music and art onscreen…just as any American child or adult would also.

  12. 12. quot;Mystic Traveler I-IIIquot; are adventure-filled, archetypal quot;epicquot; period tales filled with taut struggle, romance, and amazing special effects. It’s an attractive form for filmgoers. The films are being produced in the early 21st century for a projected cost of approximately $54 million Euro dollars each. That is only a few million dollars more than film President, Jack Valenti reported as the ‘average cost’ of a release in 1998 (page 16). And these ‘average costs’ were for films other than the Special Effects films or period-piece Epics. We therefore feel the budget for the Mystic Traveler films is responsible. It is made feasible because an independent film company is making the film; and because the industry’s Computer Generated Technology has advanced so. Also, we will shoot most all the film’s “interiors” in a large sound stage in Dublin, Ireland-- a nation that has many financial incentives for filmmakers. Much of the “exteriors” will be shot in Spain, with all the film industry’s technologies and personnel in abundance at each location. In addition, we will incorporate new digital tools for production, meticulous development and pre-production planning; new possibilities and technologies for distribution. When it is realized that the films will be released over 3 to 5 months-- making the sequels available to the film-goers after they’ve seen the first chapter, it will reveal a ‘tripling’ of film profitability in our profit centers and in a short period of time. People have wondered “Is there a way to actually increase a film’s profits when released”? The answer is ‘Yes’. Make one 6 hour film, releasing the three segments within a several months of the initial release. Since people know this Jesus story already (but never seen like this) it is a natural to present the films coherently over a time span of Christmas to Easter. Those months are perfect. We’ve come to realize that the most profitable movie of all time Titanic was made successful because young women and girls went to see the film repeatedly. There was something in the film that captured the feminine imagination. Mystic Traveler has a similar substance and tone. This film could be said to be the Jesus story from the feminine point of view. His relationship with his mother Mary is so close, his sisters too; the young Princess he saves from drowning, he had earlier befriended, and we get to see his kindness and charm with his young beloved, Tera. All the women in Jesus’ disciple-group reveal Jesus as a unique expression of male and female equality, and respect. The women in our films ‘frame’ Jesus, perhaps more than any other element, except for the interior relation he experiences with the Divine. We feel that this unique compassioned feminine viewpoint of Jesus, and this Telling, will strengthen the success and profitability of our films, especially when placed next to his incredible power, love and charisma...which seems to have been lost or missing from other Jesus films in the past. Our Special Effects will also add to him. The profitability of the Broadcast Media over the years can be strong. Several years after theatrical release, our films will be shown all year long on television—(on cable movie channels, cable TV stations, and network television). Consider also the well-known fact that TV is the greatest Profit center for movies over all others, as decades of movie presentations on network and cable, makes tremendous income. Annually televising Mystic Traveler at Holiday times makes good sense. It’s easily understood that network, cable, and movie channels, such as TNT, might annually air the Mystic Traveler films during these seasons. Our films may join “It’s a Wonderful Life”, “Ben-Hur” or the ‘Ten Commandments’ films on appropriate holy days, for many decades to come. In short, Broadcast profits should be special for Mystic Traveler. When our income potential is compared to the remarkable profitability of Gibson’s ‘Passion’ we can see that the opportunity for our Christ-centered epic/period-piece/special-effect film to have tremendous international appeal. This is particularly true when releasing several films…with more profit-centers. And in our way, if we can add harmony to our planet’s collective psyche, during these troubled times, it will be an added blessing. When hundreds of millions feel a similar simultaneous inspiration, it helps. Our 21st century populace deserves a quintessential presentation regarding humanity’s timeless Brotherhood. Finally, please note that in 2+ years when the film is released, ‘showings’ on I-Pods, cell-phones, in-car Video Screens, and many other marvelous unknown profit niches, will have emerged as ways for our partners and Synergy Services Foundation to make greater profits. And, because we are an independent filmmaker, we can hold our costs to a ‘standard’ established ten years ago; and our profit potential has and will continue to increase far in excess of the 1998 average, which was profitable back then. We look forward to this most exciting journey that is Mystic Traveler. A Motion Picture Production of Aquarian Entertainment, LLC 12
  13. 13. CONSERVATIVE SPREADSHEET PROJECTIONS Below, is a spreadsheet noting the market-niches and profit centers in mostly the U.S. Profits from the rest of the world’s profits some say could Double the U.S. amount of income. Others say with more countries than just our one nation it could more than double. The final number seen below is the number being ‘duplicated’ at some level in worldwide evaluation. The estimates below are for a Conservative level of sales success. We feel if a Conservative Profit number produces a positive outcome in an analyst’s mind then true financial success will be seen as a windfall--as money from heaven. When computing International box- office profits, a general rule of thumb is that the worldwide box-office film profits often Equal the US profits, although even that has recently been surpassed. “Troy”, Alexander,” “The Last Samurai” and others, have made almost 2 times the amount of box office profit abroad as they did in the U.S.. Still, in America we have higher ticket prices, and more filmgoers with more spendable income than most countries, so our profits are truly important. Below, we see ‘5’ year Profit Estimates. Films of course make money for many decades of TV programming but the first 5 years are the ones analyzed and relied upon. Please remember the profit perspectives here are for three films, released side by side, all within 6 to 8 months. 5 Year Projections on THREE Films MYSTIC TRAVELER I-III PROFIT Estimates Conservative estimates over 60 months 1st 24+ months The ‘Multiplier’ is Our portion of (no Guarantees implied) (Distributor/Exhibitor-Take removed) In Production the Profit-Split with Distributors and Others Profit Centers Unit price Projected Film Goers Times 3 Films Metaphysical Event Totals Multiplier ( expenses deducted) Amt. % ‘ergo.’ Market For 3 films 45% of 45M film goers Normal Film goers US 5% of 240M People x3 =36 Mill 3X 20,333,000 people = U.S. 61,000,000 = 97,000,000 is the Total Audience novel Mystic Traveler 1 $19.95 100,000 =65% units $1,296,750. novel Mystic Trav’lr 2-3 $19.95 175,000 =65% units $2,296,310.

  14. 14. MOTION PICTURE “BUDGETING/COST” and “PROFIT” INFORMATON: It is very difficult to obtain perfectly accurate figures from the studios and independent producers of motion pictures on the quot;actualquot; costs of making their films. As in many businesses, they have many reasons to keep this information to themselves. So the following figures are based on news releases and articles, but they are relatively accurate. In general, film budgets have increased yearly with films involving special effects and epics, or period pieces or quot;costume dramasquot; having the largest budgets of all. To view a condensed history of films budgeted in the area of 100 million dollars, we should go back to 1963 and the film quot;Cleopatraquot;. This was the first of the quot;high budgetquot; films by any standard set before or since. In today's dollars, quot;Cleopatraquot; cost $268 million ($44 M in 1963). The “Ironman” hit, cost $185M to produce in 2007, and made $98 million in its first five days. By 1997 the average studio budget was $52.4 million with an additional $23.2 for marketing ($75.6 M). Yet, in that same year, 1997 quot;Titanicquot; set a record with a budget reported between $250 and $300 million. Of course the return has also made history, ($1,835,400,000 box-office worldwide to date and still counting.) The dollar profits stated below are JUST Box-office not all the other profit centers. Other examples in the last decade or so include but are not limited to, quot;The Patriotquot; which cost about $100 million, making a worldwide box office of 215M. quot;The Matrixquot;, films cost $302M total, and made $1.7B worldwide. The quot;Harry Potterquot; films cost 360M & earned box office of $900M+. The quot;Lord of the Ringsquot; films cost $297M and have earned $2.9B. “Armageddon” cost nearly $90M and made $385M worldwide. The last three “Star Wars” films cost $115m to $130M each and have made to date 1.3B, with the third chapter out in May 2005 earning over $375M to date. quot;Pearl Harborquot; cost $135 million and made $450M internationally. quot;Troyquot; cost $150 million and has returned $497M. These are box-office only without video, music, toys, novels, or other profit centers. 2005’s quot;The Cauldron of Firequot; (a Harry Potter film) had a budget in excess of $120 million. The quot;War of the Worldsquot; from Spielberg had a budget in excess of $250M with marketing costs included, and the list goes on with many other films in the recent past, and soon coming future with these kind of budgets. However, even though motion pictures continue to cost more and more to make, they also have the potential to return a greater profit, especially the ‘effects film’ and/or ‘the epic’: USA Today: Contributing: Susan Wloszczyna …quot;There are only three places you can go to do movies,quot; Gordon says. quot;The present, the future and the past. It has been a ‘time’ to get back to the past.quot; .. There's a huge after-market for the epic, which can sell better on DVD than on screen. Gladiator, for instance, grossed $188 million at the box office in North America, but brought in $288 million in VHS and DVD sales and rentals. The genre is tailor-made for how-they-did-it extras and deleted footage from grand battles. Gods & Generals will become a different movie when it is transferred to disc. The 3½-hour film will become a six-hour opus and will include, among other extras, the ‘Battle of Antietam’. quot;The sound, the visuals, are going to be great on DVD,quot; says ‘Generals’ director Ron Maxwell. Technology affords extra profit centers for a film… and many opportunities to multiply. Following is part of an interesting article on these opportunities, as well as the cost of film production and its reporting practices after release: A Motion Picture Production of Aquarian Entertainment, LLC 14
  15. 15. Demystifying Motion Picture Investments Understanding the Numbers by Stan Williams, Ph.D. …But the most egregious and misleading of this reporting is the way the popular press documents a film's revenue. Take for example reports about the major studio release quot;Lost in Spacequot; (1998). It was reported that the film cost $80 million to make, $24 million to market, but grossed only $69 million at the domestic box office, of which only 50% was returned to the producers. Simple arithmetic makes quot;Lost In Spacequot; sound like even the investors were lost—to the tune of $69.5 million. But, what the popular press did not report, (probably because even the trades have a tough time tracking it) is the additional revenue collected from a variety of other potential distribution sources. These include foreign theatrical distribution (in some 40 territories); VHS and DVD home video rentals; rental store sell-through to consumers; wholesale video sales to retail stores; and licensing to premium cable, pay cable, and TV for network premiere and syndication. Then recall that all of those markets exist in many territories around the globe. There is also potential profit from the novelization and the film's music soundtrack. And, as if this wasn't enough, savvy producers often will negotiate with fast-food restaurants for cross-promotion, and the sale of toys or figurines, and for what is called quot;product placementsquot; where manufacturers will pay the producers a fee based on the number of seconds that a star carries around a can of, say, Pepsi. So what did Lost In Space actually gross when all revenues were counted? Only the producers know for sure. But inside reports say the gross was at least $350 million. Of that amount, the producers will likely profit 25% of the difference between revenue and cost, or $61.5 million. That's a far cry from a $69.5 million loss. Popular perception is often not close to reality, so much for news clippings. Following is an article regarding the future of the filmgoer market for motion pictures … a market that has been steadily developing right on track. March 10, 1998:Collapse of the Common Wisdom: How Movies Beat the Competition A Recounting of a Very Good Year, by JACK VALENTI, President and CEO of the ‘Motion Picture Association of America’ given at ‘ShoWest’, Las Vegas, Nevada. “Over the next ten years, the U.S. population will increase by roughly 12%, reaching 300 million human beings. Based then on demographic trends and movie-going history, we ought to have in the year 2010, a 12% gain in movie admissions from this date, lifting our total to some 1.6 billion in ticket sales. This advance will be led by the Over-40 age group who should enlarge their admissions by 25%, to some 512 million, followed by the 12-20 age-group with an expansion of 16%, at 405 million admissions. The 21-39 age-group will remain fairly constant, accounting for some 500 million admissions. Exhibition has good reason to view the future with a wide-lens optimism. Climbing ever higher mountains, the number of U.S. theater screens nears 32,000, the envy of the world. These screens, most of them state-of-the-art, hospitably welcomed an industry total of 458 new films released in 1997. However, from the seven major studios came a slightly less total of films released, 197 in 1997 as compared to 215 in 1996. However, you would not choose to have me spread before you a vast canvas of jubilant arithmetic without a little downside, now would you? Of course not, which is why I now come to costs. The average negative cost (which includes overhead) of the MPAA companies ascended to $53.4 million, a rise of 34% over 1996! Or…to put it more gloomily, an escalation of 166% in the last ten years. Marketing, advertising and Prints costs didn't lag either. These average costs moved to $22.2 million, a growth of 12.2% over 1996. Thus, the average total negative and marketing costs for MPAA company films reached $75.6 million.” (1998 quote of Jack Valenti—President MPAA).
