The film industry is beginning to crack open, very slowly, from the pandemic which literally shut down the major and mini-major film studios since March. Everyone was hoping this crisis would go away fast, but just this week, the NFL has canceled a few of the football games due to the virus. When will it all end? We simply do not know.
What we do know is the importance in preparing to launch when the doors do fly open. This is what we will endure. Our team and the partners will transition from going slowly, into drinking out of a "fire hydrant". In anticipation of this, in October, we are going to have our day and one half of general auditions.
GENERAL CASTING AUDITIONS - JOHNSTOWN, PA - MID OCTOBER
The director, Dr. Kevin McAfee, will travel from Nashville back to Johnstown, Pennsylvania for an "Open Call" to have a five minute meeting on a first come, first serve basis. This will allow all union and "non-union" actors from the Pennsylvania and surrounding areas to meet face to face and actually do a small reading. Each audition will not last any more than five minutes to get as many people through the doors as possible.
When the exact dates and times are available in mid to late October, we will send out a "call letter". The Lambert family will alert the press, so be sure and watch the local newspapers for updates, times and the location for the auditions.
FOLLOW UP INVESTOR MEETINGS
It has been eighteen months since we worked on investor meetings for the film franchise, so if you are interested or want to know more, please contact our film company at firstname.lastname@example.org for details. We will be working with potential financiers who are accredited investors. After marketing to eligible prospects in non registered private securities, we will set up face to face appointments, zoom calls or whatever is necessary to share we are opening up to sell a minimum of two more units.
NEW STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS
We began talking with several distribution companies and strategic partners and have shared these updates with the Lambert family. Thankfully, there is a high level of distribution interest in JP KNIGHTS and this is accelerating the process for funding all the more.
Thank you to the prayer partners who are meeting each month to pray over the details of what we are doing, how we are conducting business and formalizing our goals. Goals are needed to push the ball forward and we will let the management of the expectations be driven from the Lord.
May all of you have a wonderful Fall. Be safe and know we are praying for you as you continue to pray for us.
