Attorney Corky Kessler & Wells Offer Funding, Insurance, Accounting & Attorney...how to package your film.
Tom Malloy has raised more than $25 million in private equity from independent financiers and has written, produced and starred, or co-starred, in nearly all the films. Some of these films include ASHLEY, which starred Nicole Fox and Michael Madsen last year, LOVE N’ DANCING, directed by Rob Iscove, and stars Amy Smart, Billy Zane, and Betty White; and the psychological thriller THE ALPHABET KILLER, directed by Rob Schmidt, and starring, Timothy Hutton, Tom, and Oscar Winner Melissa Leo. In addition to his work as a filmmaker, Tom is an accomplished author whose book BANKROLL: A New Approach to Financing Feature Films is considered the “gold standard” of indie film financing instruction. A second edition came out in 2012.
After Sony attempted to reboot its “Spider-Man” franchise with Andrew Garfield as the web slinger, the studio is ready to give it a third try, this time with Kevin Feige, the man who has produced 10 consecutive blockbusters for Marvel Studios.
A deal to free up Spider-Man to appear in the Marvel cinematic universe, starting in 2017, is a clear admission by Sony that its superhero strategy with one of the most popular comicbook heroes around simply isn’t working.
That’s especially true at a time when the studio is desperate for some major film franchises. Struggling with one of the comicbook industry’s most popular superheroes was starting to get embarrassing — especially when “Guardians of the Galaxy,” starring a cast of misfits unknown to most moviegoers, broke out as a bigger hit in 2014 than the last “Spider-Man” movie when it made $774 million. “The Amazing Spider Man 2″ earned nearly $709 million worldwide.
“The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ just wasn’t the billion-dollar hit that Sony’s Amy Pascal had been looking for last year — and needed to be in order to keep full control over the character. That movie became the lowest grossing film of Sony’s five Spidey films to date, and forced the studio to instantly start rethinking its plans for the character, even giving up a piece of the franchise.

Today on "It's My House" we shall discuss how to build Social Capital through film making.
Entertainment is a very good way to educate people or bring awarness about a speicific topic or issue. In making a film one must do reseach and that research requires building "Social Capital" and on occasion this process will allow you to use "Social Finance" to fund your film project.
If you own a business and want to make people aware of what you do, maybe the best way to reach them is by particpating in a film.

An Italian explorer, Giovanni da Verrazzano, wrote a description in 1524 of the "Carolina Indians" he encountered. He wrote, "The complexion of the Carolina Indians is black, not much different from that of the Ethiopians. Their hair is black and thick, and not very long, tied back behind the head like a small tail. As for the physique of these men, they are well proportioned, of medium height, a little taller than we are. They have broad chests, strong arms, and the legs and other parts of the body are well-composed. They're broad in the face and have big black eyes. They have a sharp cunning and are agile and swift runners."
Genesis 1:9-10 ~ And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto ONE place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
Genetic data proves that all mankind has a single African mother. Blacks are indigenous in various continents and countries, indicating that the "dry land" was once a single unit. Plate tectonics is the theory that the outer rigid layer of the earth (the lithosphere) is divided into a couple of dozen "plates" that move around across the earth's surface relative to each other, like slabs of ice on a lake. We may therefore theorize that what is now the Americas was in ancient times western Africa. Blacks were in the Americas for centuries before the slave trade of the 1500s.
What are the unique contributions of African Americans in politics in America? How long have Black people been involved with local and national politics? What does the presence of Blacks in politics look like today, and is the future hopeful for African Americans in politics? Tune in tonight to get the answers to these questions and more....over 100 facts in approximately 30 minutes...it is a LONG STORY SHORT!

Tune in as Dr. Hardy makes the long, rich stories of the African Diaspora short, sweet and unforgettable.
