A Matter Of Time...the Movie Project Overview
During the years 2005 through 2007, a professional attempt was made by High Ground Productions, Inc. (“HGP”), an Arizona C Corporation, to raise development capital for the purpose of adapting a book written and published by its founder and majority shareholder, Don Kirchner, of Sedona, AZ, as a feature film. A new corporate entity, A Matter Of Time...the Movie, LLC, was created and filed as a Delaware- based company for the sole purpose of raising working capital for the pre-production phase of the film. The film rights were assigned to the LLC by HGP, in which HGP retains a 60% majority equity interest.
Significant contacts in the film industry and elsewhere were made during that period, in which approximately $300,000 was raised, however economic upheavals in real estate and stock markets created an inability for management to continue to raise capital and operate both the LLC and HGP. Operations ceased and both companies became inactive.
In late 2015, sufficient renewed interest in the film was generated by the founder sufficient for him to undertake a “re-start,” which he financed himself to the point where considerable activity has led to the formation of a team of experts in the film industry, securities and finance, and a plan has been formulated for the proper development of this venture. The late Michael Blake, Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Dances With Wolves, wrote a first draft of a script that is now being revised and polished that has attracted the interest of significant filmmakers and financiers who have indicated that they believe the film project now has sufficient credibility to achieve a “green light” status in the industry if properly funded and developed.
Potential exists for a new company created by the founder, 1835 Productions, LLC, to secure the film rights from the dormant former LLC and to raise a total of $400,000 for full pre-production of the film that will secure a working interest in the production of the film with sufficient creative control to insure a meaningful earned revenue position for its investors.
Time is of the essence in completing a full re-write of the script, for which the talents and skills of retired producer David Wisnievitz, together with screenwriter Neal Margolin are available, and Don Kirchner has a window of time himself to be able to coordinate all activities of each of several experts to bring the present script to the level of Dances With Wolves with possible attachments of Academy Award winning crew persons from that film. A Script Development project is underway while Mr. Kirchner undertakes the effort required to release and secure the film rights from the old LLC, which will require more time but is within his ability and legal right to accomplish.
An opportunity exists for individuals to provide working capital for the script completion phase of the project in the form of a short-term (1-year) loan with exclusive right to exercise an option to convert to an equity position in 1835 Productions LLC.
Said 1-year loans will carry a preferred interest rate of 10% simple interest, and will allow borrower an option to exercise a 1-year loan extension at the same interest rate upon payment of accrued interest. Lenders may exercise their right to convert to pre-agreed equity positions at any point during the period of the loan, as long as management is unable to repay their loan. Management may exercise its right to repay the full amount of each loan plus agreed interest at any time, at which point lenders must convert or accept full payment.
