The company goal is to become a robust and sustainable entity, producing high-quality, commercially marketable films. Our film projects are commercially viable, thought provoking and diverse in our story development and in the talent we are seeking to attach.
Our business plan over the next five years, is to maintain an active roster of between four to six film projects, as both lead and in collaboration with other like-minded production companies, with a goal of bringing one to two films per year to successful distribution.
