We have all heard of "The Hero Story" as a device in entertainment and in literature. It is the back bone of so many movies, novels, books, the Bible, Samson, David, Hercules, James Bond, it is endless. Now the Hero format is being granted to and created on the consummate persona in history.
In the recent past Hollywood re-discovered that metaphysical and spirtually atttuned films are proven to be popular, and successful financially. They now realize that that audience is not only there, but it's hungry; as well as large. It was basically untapped for many decades till just a few years ago. We have lined up all our collateral already - and we are ready to dedicate it profitably.
Mystic Traveler is all about exciting the 10 to 25 year-old film marketplace, but other ages too will love it; in offering the audience a trilogy on Christ's entire life - including the 'missing years'.
People in all countries know of Jesus and his world altering story. Now they'll see the most dramatic legendary vision ever. It's the Hero story version. This is not your grand father's Jesus-Film.
Mystic Traveler is a labor of love, but it was written for these audiences to satisfy their longing. This will fulfill that hunger with deep satisfaction. And then, bringing it all to them within one year's time, will be a rare offer. Seeing the trilogy in year 1 is special. Most of us already know the ending, but not the first two film stories in our trilogy on the missing years from birth to 30,
When the trilogy is wrapped up in only many months instead of many years, it achieves tremendous box-office as they follow the new and fascinating story, and then...they will get to enjoy its music, books, jackets and other associated products, all within the same year. It will give them a special incentive and a time to enjoy the long-awaited treat.
Then just 2 years later after release, just after the movie channels like HBO have had the film for a year to themselves, we will place it in a pre-emptively marketed national two week mini-series on Network TV to capture the few hundred million TV viewers who are not really film goers, so they can see Mystic Traveler up close and personal. We will simply edit it for commercials.
When OUR film presents his portrayal in an incredible heroic vision - in the 'Hero-story form" - we will excite and satisfy our audience like they have never been before. This is not the same dry slow moving vison where everyone is dressed in beige burlap sacks.
This is more a literary masterpiece graced with kinetic energy, adventure,
love, tenderness, drama, painful depth, great characters, having true gravitas. The special effects in this world-story-adventure will be for the most powerful person in history - earth's most famous person. The film here rises to the level of film-presentation that the story and Christ finally deserve.
People will sit back in their chair to luxuriate in the elevated and expansive production finally doing it justice (in its story, its music and its visuals). And when it is faithful to the biblical historic record, inclusive of Old Testament flashbacks, the interested faithful for that telling, will be very pleased indeed.
The trilogy was written by a biblical scholar-minister, who came from an entertainment family in a long line of writers, directors and producers.
Our Milky Way galaxy is the starting point of the film. The Cosmos and its history are a background. The film begins in a near future yet travels back to 1000 BC. At one point we see the Big Bang- witnessing the birth of energy
and cosmic creative expression, expanding to a starting point for the cosmos. The epi-phenomenon of our personal consciousness is presented as a tapestry giving life to this universal-experience.
This is modern film making for the heart - at its leading edge digital best.
When three films are made simultaneously, savings are about 35%+. $270 million goes farther in making 3 epic films. Our writer, author of 5 world- wide published historical, physics-metaphysics books utilizes real events with historic veracity within the films.
The inspiration the film-story brings and the feel-good lift it delivers have only a few counterparts in films past. With the 9/11 wound in the public psyche & ISIS international violence ever-present, we need the images and feelings that this film provides for its audiences.
Our filmmakers will answer the question that has been like a grail-quest for years in filmmaking: How can you assure yourself a larger profit Now when releasing a 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 film. Nor is it a run-of-the-mill comedy, or teen- farce. It’s high-concept epic filmmaking. It’s a sci-fi trilogy with worldwide even galactic borders. It takes the time to have a pleasing purpose. Its mission is to exhilarate audiences everywhere. How are we facilitating this?
First we create Mystic Traveler's segments simultaneously. Like the Lord of the Rings trilogy kept all the cast and crew in one place for a time, we save money on each, creating the production schedule just once – with the highest quality available to filmmakers. The production values will be upper echelon. The acting, directing, 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.
Essentially each detail has been thought out already, within the creative development process. Production parameters and philosophy are well grounded in reality while being incredibly well conceived.
We’ll use efficacious filmmaking strategies and locations too, along with the technologies that will make our budget as reasonable as possible without sacrificing quality.
We will likely shoot in New Zealand where they have tremendous incentives for film makers. The 25 cents (25%) tax-rebates-finance incentives and grant-reimbursement returned on each dollar spent there makes a contribution to our budget of powerful significance.
Starting at $270 million-dollars to make 3 films, 4 soundtracks, 3 Video-Albums and 3 Novels and books we even look reasonable (compared to today’s studio film-budgets). The $270 million budget also includes funds for some very special ads. However we've plans for about $100 million (33 million each) for the P&A for all three to be paid from on the Producer's side.
When an additional per cent come from government rebates, from anywhere, is added to this base amount, it makes our film making capabilities quite special, AND it can assist paying interest on a loan from lenders, etc.. By adding our own Prints and Ads budget we can make even more over decades.
Many films in the Studio system where costs spiral out of control, have film budget scenarios in excess of our Independent film budget - sufficient to make three films. For example just one Avatar cost much more. Also the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the last two Matrix films were made side-by-side at once 'down under' and the studios spent over $300 million in each case (15
years ago). Our budget NOW at 270 million for 3, is downright efficient.
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 not seen before in the industry. One thing can be said about Mystic Traveler -- it’s all about remarkable profit making (having over 31 profit centers) and a tripling of profits in almost all areas.
Also, with our long-term cohesive relationships, we have intentions with one of the Biggest names in Casting for the past twenty years; the most famous in Music entertainment, Packaging agency Executives, Special Effects, 3-D and also Production Design. The attachments will begin work with the arrival of our available finance.
We're very well prepared. Looking for partners, our collateral is all organized and ready for dedication. We look forward to creating together with you.
