    Feature Film Investor Profile
    “The Establishment” feature film project has expressed interest from both identified feature film investors (Longtale, New York Film-Group) including ‘A’ level actors (Alec Baldwin, David Bowles)
    “The Establishment” will have the an international audience appeal (Canada, United States, Europe/ Germany and United Kingdom, Australia, Japan, Mexico, India, Israel), this international audience has an awareness of subject matter (“behind-the-scenes Establishment” with “enormous power” controlling American policy, whose “principal goal is the establishment of a one-world government where the control of money is in the hands of one or more privately owned but government-chartered central banks. This conspiracy includes such elements as the Illuminati/Club of Rome, the New Age movement, the Freemasons, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission) and able to secure large box office feature film sales the same as Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007 garnered over decades (Billion $$ Brand potential). With the success of this initial feature film release future revenue will be obtained through multiple feature film releases that may include the development of “The Establishment” TV series based on initial feature film, book (Department of Cinema-Television – Regent University have been contacted), merchandising, music artist sound track release (Justin Timberlake/ Tennman Records/ Interscope Geffen A&M have been contacted), product placement. People throughout North America and Europe have heard about, “The Establishment”, and upon feature film release people worldwide will be able to see the movie.
