After three years of busting ass and getting my first feature film signed by Sony and placed in Walmarts nationwide, I've embarked on a second one. It's a feature action/drama set during a search for Nazi war criminals in 1950s South America. I penned the final line of the script atop Machu Picchu in 2018 and immediately jumped into preproduction.
This one was going to require some next-level production value, but without the initial backing of a major studio I'd have to leverage my own sweat equity to get started. I needed big-league visual splash, and the opening scene features a B17 bomber crashed in a farm in eastern France during WWII, so consequently I spent most of 2019 and the early part of 2020 sleeping in a barn in rural North Carolina and building a full-scale crashed B17F and period French farmstead.

The challenges and personal workload to create these were staggering, but the film's explosive opening scene now features millions of dollars of built-in production value for about $40,000 and a year of my life. But production was slated for summer 2021 and now all we had to do was pull on a star actor to kick this thing into overdrive!
After months of negotiations with actors like Ewan McGregor and Timothy Olyphant, we finally settled on a bankable A-list talent to headline the film. Everything got finalized last week. I can't post who it is as I am under NDA and his attorney (and mine) would nail me to the wall. He's arguably the hottest actor in Hollywood currently and will blow the doors off the thing. We will blow off the roof ourselves with top-grade production crew and value that rivals studio projects for a tiny fraction of the overhead. We're going to make Point Man look like a YouTube video.
Point Man was driven by donations, this one will be driven by private partial equity investors. If you have money and want to turn it into buckets of money, you should invest in this film. Its bankable talent, superior production value, marketable themes, and rock-bottom overhead make it an absolute slam dunk. We project a 29MM gross on a budget less than a tenth of that. I am by far the hardest working person you know or have never met and I will be a millionaire. You can too if you invest in this film.
