GRASS-ROOTS DISTRIBUTION NETWORK A Movie Marketing Plan by James Jaeger
As most Americans now understand, a handful of multinational corporations own and/or dominate 90% of the mass media. This so-called "mainstream media" suppresses films, books and news important to WE THE PEOPLE and usually only promulgates its agenda of globalization and the New World Order.
Of the 312 million citizens in the United States, at least 150 million are old enough and sophisticated enough to be concerned about the U.S. Constitution and whether it's being applied properly. Of this 312 million citizens, about 3 million own 40% of the nation's wealth yet these people do little or nothing to make Constitutional films possible. The reason is simple: they don't want to see the system changed. They have figured out a way to plunder the rest of us through excessive taxation, inflation, and the purchase of Congress to reconfigure the nation's laws for their own unjust enrichment. These specifically are the people that own and/or dominate the major movie studios and the TV and Cable networks across the nation, and world.
There ARE exceptions to this, but in general this is what our research indicates is happening in the motion picture business.
To counter this serious atrophy of populist mass communications, we propose an alternate system of distributing movies. If vital information is not disseminated, there is diminishing hope of reestablishing a Constitutional Republic and delousing the nation of the plutocrats, usurpers and rogue politicians that have stolen the American Dream.
The proposed system could establish a peer-to-peer network that could exponentially distribute more movies than the Hollywood-based studios and the New York-based mainstream media. It will also enable those who participate to earn significant monetary rewards. The goals are thus twofold:
1) Distribute important films and information to WE THE PEOPLE so that things start to get better, rather than worse;
2) Provide a modest or significant income source for grass-roots distributors while they are accomplishing point 1 above.
When our company established PAY-PER-VIEW.COM and authored the first business plan for video-on-demand over the Internet in 1995, the financial "experts" told us that it couldn't be done. Today, video-on-demand is the new normal. Given the experts don't always know, the proposed plan could be as successful as video-on-demand. The heart of the plan is a network of thousands of patriots who disseminate, sell and gift films about the Constitution to the 150 million Americans who are old enough and sophisticated enough to be concerned. This is a potentially larger market than the movie industry, record industry and news industry combined. This has also never been done partly because the technology has not been present.
Unfortunately, as discussed above, most patriots have been so raped and pillaged by the current, anti-Constitutional system, they have a difficult time taking advantage of new technology. They barely even have enough money for their monthly debt payments to the banks, food and outrageous gasoline prices. Health care is simply a pipedream for 40 million. We understand this. We also understand that the economic treadmill the plutocrats -- and their Federal Reserve System -- have placed us upon CAN be defeated.
Overview of the Proposed Network
Here is what Matrix Entertainment Corporation (MEC) proposes as a new, grass-roots distribution network to attain objectives 1 and 2 above:
Many people have donated to the production budgets of our public service, documentary motion pictures and for this we are grateful. To date the films we have produced are FIAT EMPIRE, ORIGINAL INTENT, CULTURAL MARXISM, CORPORATE FASCISM and SPOILER. At this writing MOLON LABE is completing production. Although we acknowledge these donations with screen credits, and will continue to do so, we would like to do more.
FOR DONORS THAT GO ABOVE THE NORMAL CALL OF DUTY, WE WOULD LIKE TO GIVE YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE THE MOVIES YOU HELP PRODUCE AT COST SO YOU CAN MORE EASILY GIVE THEM AWAY, SCREEN THEM FOR OTHER PATRIOTS AND/OR SELL THEM FOR WHATEVER YOU WISH TO EARN AS MUCH AS YOU NEED.
With that in mind, we should emphasize something that may not be understood or be appreciated by people outside the motion picture industry: PRODUCERS NEVER ALLOW ANYONE TO ACQUIRE THEIR FILMS AT COST. This is not done in the motion picture industry.
The reason is simple -- professional motion pictures are very expensive to make. They usually range from six figure budgets to eight and even nine figure budgets. We are able however, due to experience and efficiency, to produce our films in the five and six figure range. Michael Moore requires an average seven or eight figures for each of his films.
So, with the above in mind, understand we are proposing this marketing plan for considerations other than profit -- what solely motivates most production companies in Hollywood and New York. We would really LIKE to see you make some money AND we would really like to see our Constitutional films disseminated to as many citizens as possible.
To prove this is true, we have already placed all of our films on YouTube for free. Literally millions of people have watched them and about 15,000 watch them every day. See http://www.YouTube.com/OriginalIntentDoc "analytics" to verify this claim. The problem is, even though it's rewarding that we're getting word out, if we take 18 months to get every film out its difficult to build any momentum. Worse, we could go bankrupt and not be able to make ANY more films as our overhead for editing studios and office space alone is about $25,000 per year. The fact is, a VERY small percentage of people donate to movies and a very small percentage that watch movies for free go on to purchase the movie on DVD. This is probably not surprising, but it could also be considered a sad commentary on the cultural Marxist-infested society in which we now live. But why should it be the burden of just a few to uphold and strengthen the Constitutional principles that BUILT this nation when they are in just as bad of a situation while as those who do little or nothing?
Hopefully this plan will provide some hope. Millions of unemployed Americans who, even when employed, have seen their wages flat since 1971. These have been raped and pillaged by bank debt service, credit card payments, inflation, outrageous insurance premiums and endless taxes for decades. Thus many of these people simply CAN'T afford even the cost of a DVD!
So this brings us to the specifics of this Marketing Plan and a way we may all be able to navigate out of this mess created by the Federal Reserve-supported banking plutocracy and the rogue politicians that have usurped power in Washington DC.
For each $5,000 donation to the production or marketing budget of our movies we will grant a non-exclusive licence to purchase 1,250 DVDs from our manufacture at the prevailing price ("Cost"). You may sell or give these DVDs away as you see fit. 1,250 DVDs has a retail value of about $24,500 so you would be able to recoup your donation and have a little left over if you sold them.
"Cost" is what even we as the production company have to pay a third-party manufacture to mass produce our DVDs, print the artwork and assemble everything in a box with shrink-wrap.
This plan is not available for donations below $5,000. If a donation is for an odd sum, this plan can be prorated. For instance, a donation of $17,500 would grant you a licence for 4,375 DVDs (17,500/4).
THIS PLAN, AT THIS TIME, IS ONLY OFFERED TO INDIVIDUAL DONORS. NOT DISTRIBUTORS, EXHIBITORS, WEBSITES, TV STATIONS, MOVIE COMPANIES, ORGANIZATIONS OR ANY OTHER NON-NATURAL PERSON ENTITY. This is also non-transferable. If you are other than a natural person, see wholesale prices at http://www.molon.us/dvds
Since we are piloting this marketing plan, please understand it is subject to change.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the motion picture business, you may be having doubts that the kind of money described in the chart is possible. If so, remember this. We stated above that there are about 312 million American citizens and at least 150 million are old enough and sophisticated enough to be concerned about the Constitution. That's your potential MARKET for these films: 150 million people. Thus even a sale of 8,000 DVDs barely SCRATCHES the surface of this market. In fact, you have penetrated less than .005% of the potential market with such sale. If you still don't believe these numbers, consider THIS: the major movie studios do these volumes all day long, year in and year out and have been doing so for decades. This is, in fact, WHY they are called the MAJOR studios. They sell millions of DVDs every year -- through THEIR distribution network -- yet they don't have a market potential any where near the 150 million people YOU have through this proposed, peer-to-peer, grass-roots distribution network.
As mentioned above, in addition to the sums you can earn grass-roots distributing patriotic movies, you will also receive a screen credit as acknowledgement of your donation. Screen credits are broken down into two major categories: MAIN CREDITS and END CREDITS. The main credits are on the front of the movie before the show starts. The end credits are after the show has ended. We will grant only a limited number of screen credits as roughly designated below.
150-175 "Production Assistant" credits -- $100 donation
25-50 "Production Associate" credits -- $250 donation
10-15 "Associate Producer" credits -- $500 donation
5-10 "Executive Producer" credits -- $1,000 donation
3-4 "Associate Producer" credits -- $5,000 donation
2-3 "Executive Producer" credits -- $10,000 donation
1-3 "Producer credits" -- $20,000 donation
1-2 Presentation credits -- $30,000 donation
Few if any motion picture production companies have granted licensing arrangements as contemplated in this Marketing Plan yet Michael Moore-type producers -- sniffing at this document, our websites and movies -- have already started to copy our system of fund-raising and production. We have to beat them to market, become self-sufficient and then obfuscate our process.
Until now, the ability to acquire expensive motion picture product at laboratory/manufacturing cost was reserved for only the copyright-holding production company and a handful of licensed distributors with "lab letters."
With your help, we are now piloting a new system of grass-roots distribution because, instead of relying on just a handful of distributors, we would like the redundancy of hundreds, maybe thousands of distributors such as yourself, should you decide to participate. Wouldn't you also feel better knowing that thousands of patriots are distributing movies explaining the Constitution rather than just a handful of Hollywood or New York distributors that, deep down, have shown little more than contempt for the U.S. Constitution?
We believe the market is large enough -- and the cause significant enough -- to justify this new system of grass-roots distribution. Again, the mainstream media, major movie studios and Moore-type producers will not lift a FINGER to distribute conservative, right-wing or Libertarian films. This is one of the major reasons cultural Marxism and corporate fascism have gained such footholds in the institutions of America.
This "long march through the institutions" could be reversed if a system of donation-based, grass-roots distribution can be made to work. In a sentence, the philosophy behind this new distribution network could be summed up as follows:
YOU NEED MONEY AND "WE THE PEOPLE" NEED A CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC.
It's no more complex than that. If MEC is able to enrich you, you will not only have the extra money to donate to our future films, you will be able to help us by-pass the multinational corporations that own and dominate 90% of the mass media. Again, this "mainstream media" suppresses not only films, but books and news important to WE THE PEOPLE. You will thus also have the money, hence time, to help out other patriotic production companies -- as well as a full range of patriotic authors, writers, artists, musicians, opinion leaders, speakers, political action committees and possibly even political candidates.
With your help, we can pilot a new, grass-roots distribution network that can not only generate modest or significant financial returns for you, it can potentially disseminate movies (books and other information) to the 150 million Americans who are able and willing to receive the message of liberty that our Founders worked hard to deliver through the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
This Marketing Plan is still subject to change.
