    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.

    Marvel Film Talk Podcast Ep. 8 - SPIDER-MAN is back at MARVEL w/ SONY along

    in Entertainment

    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.

    Soul Contracts, Karmic Debts, and Balance Partners.

    in Spirituality

     


    Soul Contracts are created before we incarnate.  We choose experiences and the people to come into our lives to help us have those experiences.   


    Same with balance partners.  Accelerated Soul Growth happens  when a balance partner comes into our experience. 


    Have you had people come into your life and you had an intense emotional connection but the relationship did not last?  These relationships can be romantic, friendship, or even business related.   These could be a karmic debt from a past life being worked out and completed.   


    Lets chat about all this and more.
