STARS & DIRECTORS

Stars, directors, cinematographers, editors

Some of the principals in the project (i.e., stars, directors, cinematographers, editor, etc.) have agreed to reinvest half of their fees in the respective films, there by reducing budgets and risks. They have great expectations of high box office receipts in the marketplace and from media sales, and in return for this reinvestment of fees, they will depend on percentage of box office and media receipts.  This will be paid from the "producer's net.
Investors in the four-film project and the Principles Guadalupe Rosas and Stephanie Velinova will share profits equally, with the re-investments of stars and other personnel coming from the share of profits of the Principals. The return to the stars, directors, etc. will come from the share of the principals.

THE INDUSTRY

The future for independent films looks convincing, as their commercial viability has increased steadily during last 15 years, while the total domestic box has augmented in 80%.

Films like “Ghost Rider”(total worldwide profits up to March 14: $179,729,547) “Ghost” with a budget of $22 million and worldwide profit of $505,702,588; “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”( with total gross of $241,438,208), and “National Treasure”( with total gross of  $173,008,894);”March of the Penguins”( with total gross of  $77,437,223).”. Leaving outside our study those extraordinary cases, let’s review some samples of steady economic profit by films with similar setup as our movies in the list TICKET TO HEAVEN, SHOOTING STARS, TOUCHED, IN HEAT. A complete table is listed below:

At the same time we will try to emulate those case of the films of same genre than our, we are trying to reduce the budgets in all the possible forms, without affecting the quality. We have been looking for chances of better prices. We will be shooting on the most precise locations, some of them in traditional scenarios like Hollywood, or New York, and some scenes where local flavor is needed, at the original places imagined by the screenwriter.

Similarly with all the expenses necessary in good level movies.

Anyway, we want to point,  for the knowledge of our possible investors, that it is impossible to prevent all the risks subjacent to film production. We are reducing the risks by all means in our hands: our movies avoid the typical high budgets for Hollywood, we have a distribution upfront,  The formula of production we are employing reduces the risks in substantial way.
The formula of production we are employing reduces the risks in substantial way. If we evaluate the danger of complete failure of a film in a 20%, the probability of a total failure is reduced, in mathematical calculation in a 1/625, if we are speaking of four films of different genres and characteristics. If  only one of the four films succeeds, it will help the others, in the traditional methods of  packages, that distributors know quite well. Anyway, As the films will not be shot and released at the same time , but in successive way, and leaving the most expensive for the end, the profits of the movies released first, will be guarantying the good result of the package, and in case of failure, it would be possible to reduce the losses to a minimum, canceling the most expensive budgets. So, we are acting in a way to reduce substantially the risks, but to be honest, we have to admit an absolute guarantee for preventing risks has not yet been invented, as it happens even in other industries considered more sure.

MODUS OPERANDI

To avoid unnecessary financial expenses, the schedule of cash flow will be carefully examined and the amounts necessary to maintain the system in efficient work will be studied in a weekly basis. We hope to have a delegate of the investors in the shooting and our accountant with enough experience in controlling and accounting the expenses will supervising the amounts needed in every moment. We will try to prevent any unnecessary expense. The previsions of the attentions necessary to maintain the spirit of stars, supporting players, talents and technical crew are foreseen in the budgets. 

DISTRIBUTION

Phoenix Worldwide Entertainment/ Michael Cowan/ UK has a long distribution experience and he is in charge of choosing the most adequate major distributor and he will assure that the films will have access to and superior representation in the marketplace.

There is an interest from other distributors and given the progressive specialization in that field, we have to consider which company would be the best to represent the film, according to the demographics of the viewing audiences -- genre, age, etc.
