Sundance remains the number one priority for A Lot Less Gray due to its focus on exposing new and emerging talent.
  12. 12. Business Plan <ul><li>This film will look like it cost one million dollars to make, but we will do it for fifty thousand. Our cinematographer will make this picture look like it was shot on the most expensive 35mm film. CJ Roy also brings with him many connections to help with distribution, including his cousin being the VP of Warner Bros. We have Sean Patrick Flanery who brings a big notoriety, and would normally be paid more than the entire budget of our film. Our audio engineer has worked with some of the greatest musicians of all time. We have top emerging musicians who are at the cusp, and ready to break through. We will be shooting in Bloomington, IN where our producer Ole Brereton has cut down production costs to nearly zero through his contacts. All these talents have a following of their own. Together they represent an incredible chance to make something extremely special and rare. </li></ul>
  13. 13. $$$MONEY$$$ <ul><li>There are multiple ways to make money from an independent feature film. </li></ul><ul><li>Get distribution from an AE who sees our film at a film festival. </li></ul><ul><li>Sell the film to other countries at a Foreign Market. </li></ul><ul><li>Sell directly to Blockbuster, Netflix, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Sell to cable channels. </li></ul>With Sean Patrick Flanery involved the likelihood of making our money back from the Foreign Market is very high. He is extremely popular overseas. With such a low budget the recouping of funds, while not guaranteed, will be extremely likely with immense possibility for major profit.
