Making a film is an huge endeavor and a very difficult one.
It requires amazing organizational skills and a lot of hard work.
With such high profit potentials,
IF IT WAS EASY TO MAKE A MOVIE EVERYONE WOULD BE DOING IT!
Of course today, with the digital revolution most movies are no longer shot on film
and with the high cost for expensive film having been eliminated, there are
a lot more filmmakers now than ever before, but many soon find out
that it takes a lot more than just a camera to make a full length feature film
and even a harder task to make one of quality.
In most attempts to make a full length feature film, the movie is never even completed!
WHO IS PRODUCING THE FILM? WHAT EXPERIENCE DO THEY HAVE?
An investor would face much greater risks in an investment in a film being made by
producers who have never made a film before.
When it comes to RUNNING ANY BUSINESS PAST EXPERIENCE IS A KEY TO SUCCESS!
The same rules apply WHEN PRODUCING a FILM, EXPERIENCE IS A KEY TO SUCCESS!
One of the most important ingredients for any business and for completing
a feature length film is MANAGEMENT,
because that's WHO YOU WILL BE RELYING ON to MAKE YOU MONEY!
Today with thousands of films being produced in the new digital age there are only a few that standout and make it to theaters or TV. Most fail!
In today's film market there are a handful of filmmakers who continue to make very good successful films proving EXPERIENCE COMBINED WITH TALENT is a SUCCESSFUL BLUEPRINT!
Of course in any venture there can and are always unseen obstacles in the road...
With the SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION, DISTRIBUTION and AWARDS including the NEW -
GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS®, WORLD RECORD for
"The MOST FILM FESTIVAL AWARDS for ONE MOTION PICTURE.", awarded to producer
TALBOT PERRY SIMONS' for his first film "STILL THE DRUMS".
And even though no one can guarantee the success of any business venture,
for this particular investment,
MANAGEMENT BELIEVES with THEIR PREVIOUS SUCCESS
The RISK of -
WILL "THE GANGSTER ZONE" BE SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED?
Award winning producer Talbot Perry Simons says, "ABSOLUTELY!"
When a motion picture completes filming the expression used in the industry originated back when film came in cans, is...
"It's in the can!"
B. WILL THE MOVIE HAVE PROFESSIONAL PRODUCTION QUALITY?
Most low budget films are made by amateurs and their films are lacking in production quality for numerous reasons. Bad camera work, bad story, bad acting, bad music, the list goes on and on.
FOR THE RECORD...
TALBOT'S FIRST FILM "STILL THE DRUMS", WON the TOP 5 AWARDS
INCLUDING the AWARD for BEST FILM at the
NEW YORK INTERNATIONAL INDEPENDENT FILM and VIDEO FESTIVAL!
And...The PLATINUM REEL for STANDOUT FILMMAKING!
Topping it off with a NEW GUINNESS WORLD RECORD® for
"THE MOST FILM FESTIVAL AWARDS FOR ONE MOTION PICTURE by an INDIVIDUAL FILMMAKER in the HISTORY of FILMMAKING!
HE BROKE CHARLIE CHAPLIN'S 60 YEAR LONG STANDING WORLD RECORD!
It's rare to find a low budget film and filmmaker that has received
such prestigious honors for his first film!
For this investment...
MANAGEMENT FEELS the ANSWER to...
WILL THE MOVIE HAVE COMMERCIAL PRODUCTION QUALITY?
Is a definite YES!
And this RISK has been ELIMINATED!
E.WILL THE MOVIE SELL?
Obviously we have no crystal ball! No one knows what the future holds.
We can only look at the past record of what has sold well and what hasn't.
We all know that past performance is no guarantee of future performance,
but it does make the best indicator. We have to consider the recorded facts.
Just our TITLE, "THE GANGSTER ZONE", is and will be a PHENOMENAL MARKETING TOOL!
We can and will take advantage of (at NO EXPENSE) the GREAT 50 YEAR REPUTATION, FAN BASE and SUCCESS from the "The TWILIGHT ZONE" TV SHOW and MOVIE(S).
As I am writing this CBS is in PRODUCTION to RE-RELEASE a NEW, "TWILIGHT ZONE" MOVIE, TV SHOW and VIDEO GAME. THEIR SUCCESS will be a HUGE BENEFIT to OUR PRODUCTION and MARKETING, adding to our OWN SUCCESS and INCREASING our PROFIT POTENTIAL!
Other than standard marketing and advertising,
WORD of MOUTH is actually the GREATEST form of PUBLICITY and ADVERTISING in the movie business.
WORD of MOUTH SPREADS VERY QUICKLY! Like WILD FIRE!
When the PUBLIC SEES a MOVIE that HAS a GREAT STORY...
It's WORD of MOUTH that CREATESall of thoseBLOCK BUSTER BOX OFFICE RECORD SETTING WEEKENDS we hear about on the news!
Another GREAT MARKETING TOOL we have to generate ticket sales at the box office
is TALBOT PERRY SIMONS. HOLLYWOOD'S HOTTEST NEW FILMMAKER and the NEW, GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® MOST AWARDED FILMMAKER.
The FIRST and ONLY FILMMAKER to BREAK CHARLIE CHAPLIN'S (SIR CHARLES CHAPLIN'S) 68 YEAR WORLD RECORD is now producing his SECOND FEATURE FILM with his
NEW, AWARD WINNING SCREENPLAY "THE GANGSTER ZONE"!
The RISK of - WILL THE MOVIE SELL?
CANNOT BE TRULY ANSWERED at this early stage,
BUT APPEARS TO BE WELL COVERED.
F. WILL THE MOVIE MAKE ENOUGH MONEY TO RETURN A PROFIT?
LET'S TAKE A LOOK
RETURN ON INVESTMENT
C. WILL THE MOVIE OBTAIN DISTRIBUTION?
The GENERAL PARTNERS feel very strongly that any MAJOR FILM DISTRIBUTOR such as WARNER BROS., PARAMOUNT, LIONSGATE, UNIVERSAL STUDIOS could quickly step in
and take over this film project an decide to run with the ball AT ANYTIME!
This would EASE any production obstacles or burdens and GREATLY INCREASE our profit potential to a much higher level.
The POTENTIAL IS TRULY THERE! And this SMALL WINDOW of OPPORTUNITY could
CLOSE THIS OFFER to any additional new partner investors AT ANYTIME!
DISTRIBUTION, just like it sounds, is how a movie it marketed and sold and shown in theaters and on TV, etc.
There are several ways a motion picture can obtain distribution.
For example: A "STUDIO PRODUCTION" by a major film studio starts out with distribution.
Where, an "INDEPENDENT FILM", such as our film "The Gangster Zone", will either sell their film outright to a distributor or sign a financial agreement to have the movie distributed by a film distributor.
To showcase a film to distributors, Independent films will usually attend Film Festivals, Film Markets and Pitch Sessions to reach out to distributors.
For an INDEPENDENT FILM the optimum BEST SCENARIO for OBTAINING DISTRIBUTION
would be to catch the eye of any of the major distributors and once they sign the film they
will then take charge of the film's marketing and represent the film directly to buyers at Film Festivals and Film Markets.
As a MULTIPLE AWARD WINNING FILMMAKER with a NEW AWARD WINNING SCREENPLAY
and a GUINNESS WORLD RECORD for FILMMAKING, we will obviously be given more attention than the filmmakers that do not have such laurels and we have a much greater potential to be the film that will catch the eye of the distributors!
After all it is called show "BUSINESS"!
After we have cast any one of the leading roles in "THE GANGSTER ZONE" the word will
spread very quickly throughout Hollywood and the industry and with the STARRING CAST
we are planning to put together, we believe that we may experience what might be called a feeding frenzy by TOP FILM DISTRIBUTORS to quickly grab our film!
Of course OUR MARKETING TEAM will be assisting that spreading of the news by our announcing any and all the casting and exciting production information through all possible media channels and trade papers, like, The Hollywood Reporter, Variety and of course both
the New York and Los Angeles Times.
Another big attraction for distributors will be our creating an early buzz about the potential for
a possible best screenplay nomination for our award winning screenplay. An Oscar or Golden Globe nomination could take us into a mega hit category film!
To distributors this simply spells M-O-N-E-Y!
So...For this investment...
MANAGEMENT FEELS the ANSWER to...
WILL THE MOVIE OBTAIN DISTRIBUTION? -
The General Partners believe the answer to this question is a big
D.WILL THIS MOVIE HAVE AUDIENCE APPEAL?
When it comes to AUDIENCE APPEAL, that's one area we all
have experience in! You don't have to be a filmmaker or a critic
to know if you like a movie. We've all seen good films and bad films
so, who could be a better judge of Audience Appeal than ourselves.
In the movie business it is believed that STORY IS WHAT SELLS!
It ALL STARTS with the STORY!
For a film it's the SCREENPLAY and as you already know
from what you have already read,
"THE GANGSTER ZONE"
WON the TOP AWARD
for BEST FEATURE FILM SCREENPLAY
at the LOS ANGELES SCREENPLAY COMPETITION!
Another BAROMETER for predicting Audience Appeal is our
producer writer, Talbot Perry Simons.
A perfect example of how well his barometer works, is what he did
with his film "STILL THE DRUMS".
Talbot knew he had something special with his film "Still the Drums", and he did something that's rarely done by small independent films, on a limited budget he hired camera crews and interviewers (one in New York and one in Los Angeles) to capture the audience's live reactions and comments as they exited the theaters immediately after watching the Film Festival Premieres. -
He was smart to do it! It paid off dearly! The TAPED LIVE ON THE SPOT FOOTAGE of the AUDIENCE EXITING the MOVIE THEATERS in New York and Los Angeles became an invaluable publicity tool for the marketing of "Still the Drums". It was a brilliant idea!
The live audience interviews/comments are posted on Youtube at the following links.
Like most investments, the stock market, commodities,
precious metals, investing in a film, is speculation and
is in most cases considered to be a HIGH RISK INVESTMENT.
You are investing in a film being made by a filmmaker with
the skills and talents of a Steven Spielberg or James Cameron!
WHO'S PRODUCING a FILM
CAN MAKE ALL the DIFFERENCE
in a MOTION PICTURE'S COMPLETION and SUCCESS.
The point I am making is, it is a VERY DIFFICULT TASK to MAKE a
FEATURE LENGTH MOTION PICTURE!Especially a good motion picture.
The plain truth is MOST PEOPLE WHO EVER EVEN TRY to MAKE a FEATURE LENGTH MOTION PICTURE, END UP FAILING.
On the other hand...
Another plain truth is, THERE are SOME FILMMAKERS WHO CONSISTENTLY MAKE VERY GOOD MOVIES.
For example, filmmakers most everyone has heard of like, Steven Spielberg, Francis Ford Coppola, George Lucas, James Cameron, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, Mel Gibson and Ron Howard, or some of the old time great filmmakers like, John Ford, Alfred Hitchcock and Frank Capra, just to
mention a few. I'm sure we all have our favorites.
Filmmakers of their category are a TALENTED RARE BREED and if any of us were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to invest in one of their films, I'm sure many of us would do so without hesitation. With his setting a new Guinness World Record in filmmaking, with his Best Film winner and multiple award winning first film and now another award winning screenplay, Talbot is already proving to be
one of our great filmmakers.
So, when it comes right down to it, WHAT IS THE RISK for THIS FILM?
For starters, we can all agree that even a person who is completely unfamiliar with movie production, or the film industry, can understand the importance of
WHO is PRODUCING a FILM, CAN MAKE ALL the DIFFERENCE
in a MOTION PICTURE'S COMPLETION and SUCCESS.
