and Video-Making Assistance
We are currently co-producing or participating in a variety of ways on a
number of feature and documentary film productions, are involved in video
presentations, commercials, and TV films. We always prefer to participate in a
production right at the start of the preproduction stage and be involved in all
phases through postproduction and distribution. If nothing else, we can at least
bring in an independent critical viewpoint throughout the process; if asked so,
we can take over any part of the production process, critique the director's
vision, participate in the director's selection, assist with story
editing, advise on merits and type of digital film production, 3D, etc.
If we participate in your advertising campaign, we can act as a sole producer
of your TV ads, promotional videos, etc.
Making Films For US Markets
There are many excellent filmmakers in Europe and many excellent European,
non-English-language productions originate here. Still many films of a lot lower
quality, made by worse filmmakers in the US, are much better candidates to be a lot
more financially successful. The economic law of comparative advantages does not
apply here well. Other factors come to play. We could be of assistance to the foreign filmmakers and
creating films that would be better marketable in the US
creating successful marketing of new and existing foreign films in the US, even old
ones that so far had no US distribution at all
There is a hungry audience for many of these foreign films, an audience, which is
tired of the stuff Hollywood is flooding the market with. One needs to know
how to effectively reach this audience.
Making US Films in Eastern Europe
We are quite familiar and at home in this part of the world and can be of
assistance in making film and other productions smoother and more efficient, can even
help in setting up
production companies and studios here.
Our Own Digital Cinema & Video Productions
Not only we participate in film and video productions, we also do them
independently. We handle the whole process, from preproduction to
postproduction: Story editing, location scouting, casting; directing documents, commercials, music and corporate videos,
use of HD and 3D equipment, etc.
Culture And Media Power
One must realize the role of media in creation and promotion of cultural
and TV programming play a crucial role in our understanding and appreciation of other cultures, in learning from
them, and in teaching them. Film is one of the most powerful media in
promotion of a country, a nation, political movement, environmental cause, etc. Many
states have learned how to promote a positive image of its people and culture
with the use of film. Others states are great at destroying
the good image they have.
Hypnosis In A Film
Majority of well made films should bring most audience into a hypnotic, highly enjoyable state. When a sequence is made, these people are then
more likely to see it. So hypnosis, and often also (where legal) supraliminal and subliminal messaging,
can translate to a significant profit increase. Film is given as an example here. A well made one takes
advantage of hypnosis even throughout the titles. Hypnotizing effect is naturally
much harder to achieve in shorter content, like
Our Viewpoint On Making A Successful Film
There are exceptions to the rule, but here's what we view as being very
important for most film productions:
A good film should hypnotize the audience. It must be dynamic, optimally scored, and made in a way
that the audience is totally immersed in the action. The audience should experience deep
emotions. A film must be memorable throughout, including the titles. Photography
must be artistic and there is no need to use words, where a picture, or a well scored
picture, can relay the message in a more powerful way.
When we write a screenplay, we get the subconscious mind take over. Just as one
can experience a film best on the hypnotic subconscious level, a writer should go into this highly creative state
when he writes a script. He should be able to go
in and out of this state quite easily.
Feature film is a commercial product and as such the major concern should be
to make the most profit,
the same time it is necessary to create a positive PR for the studio, and also prepare the audience for a
sequel. The film must pre-sell the sequel. When making a movie, a sequel must always be kept
in mind. Both the director and the writer, no matter how good and independent they are, must not
be able to impose a different direction to this philosophy.
If we would be looking at film as fine art only and something that does not have to
be profitable, it would be a totally unacceptable business philosophy. Feature film is a commercial art
and is too expensive to make. If one wants to create art for art's sake, he
or she should concentrate on much less expensive art forms. Both the writer and the
director must buy to this philosophy.
When making a movie, we must be conscious of the critics and the way they
view film; we must keep in mind their often literary background and the way they
motion picture when they analyze it. They do not always necessarily understand well
enough that film is an audio-visual art form and as such is much different from
the literary arts, where one's subconscious creates its own audio-visuals;
these are always present, but in a movie this process is totally different.
One must realize power of a politically correct film in regards to how critics and
media see it. We must balance this reality with how the audience looks at it and
what it means for the short and long term profits. One must examine the
long term effect on the studio and marketability of their future products in this respect.
We've reviewed films, for the people who finance them, in order to help determine market
success, in order to see, if a different cut is needed, etc. We are pretty good in seeing both the artistic and the commercial
value, are also able to see if a better way exists to create a motion
picture, can determine if the director's vision is optimal, or if a different
director should be used.
