is in the business of creating wealth through content

We do this by producing, selling and distributing independent films and television properties. We take a blank page and turn it into a commercially viable screenplay, we then manage the pre-production, production and post-production of the project’s evolution into a feature film and set up a market and distributing network. Our business model is poised to take advantage of the market from audience desire to awareness and the distribution of content.
