Become an Investor at Kaibab Productions

 

Audiences are clamoring for the creative edge of Indie films as Hollywood generates “safe” pieces that fit a predictable pattern of success.  According to the Wall Street Journal, “‘The Indie marketplace is really healthy right now,’ says [independent film] producer Michael London… ‘People are going to see these movies.  They’re getting nominated for awards, and they’re making money at the box office.’” (“The Sun Rises at Sundance.” Kate Kelly, Wall Street Journal, New York, NY: Jan 27, 2006. p B1.)

Risk Factors

Investment in the film industry can be highly speculative and risky. There can be no assurance of the economic success of any motion picture since the revenues derived from the production and distribution of a motion picture depend primarily upon its acceptance by the public, which cannot be predicted. The commercial success of a motion picture also depends upon the quality and acceptance of other competing films released into the marketplace at or near the same time, general economic factors, and other tangible and intangible factors, all of which can change and cannot be predicted with certainty.

 

The entertainment industry in general, and the motion picture industry in particular, are continuing to undergo significant changes, primarily due to technological developments. Although these developments have resulted in the availability of alternative and competing forms of leisure time entertainment, such technological developments have also resulted in the creation of additional revenue sources through licensing of rights to such new media, and potentially could lead to future reductions in the costs of producing and distributing motion pictures.

 

In addition, the theatrical success of a motion picture remains a crucial factor in generating revenues in other media such as DVD and television. Due to the rapid growth of technology, shifting consumer tastes, and the popularity and availability of other forms of entertainment, it is impossible to predict the overall effect these factors will have on the potential revenue from and profitability of feature-length motion pictures. 

 

Over time, however, investing in multiple feature films consistently brings profit.  For example, during 2006, the total amount budgeted for feature films was $5,372,179,000 with a worldwide gross of $14,118,985,926, resulting in an overall industry-wide profit of $8,746,806,926. 

 

This memorandum is neither an offer to sell, nor a prospectus, but is informational in nature.  The investment herein entails a degree of risk and is suitable for purchases only by those who can afford a loss of their investment.

 

 

Distribution

The typical method of releasing films begins with domestic theatrical, which gives value to the various film “windows” (the period that has to pass after a domestic theatrical release before a film can be released in other markets). Historically, the sequencing pattern has been to license to pay-cable program distributors, foreign theatrical, home video, television networks, foreign ancillary, and U.S. television syndication. As the rate of return varies from different windows, shifts in these sequencing strategies will occur.

 

Technical Production

The production of our films involve a shoot of approximately four weeks, with four weeks of pre-production and an four-week post-production period. The film will be shot at various Southern Arizona locations that fit the appropriate landscape for the script. Legal Counsel will be carried out through an entertainment lawyer.  A completion guarantee (bond) is proposed to guarantee the film is finished without additional funds from investors.

Market Analysis

Audiences are clamoring for the creative edge of Indie films as Hollywood generates “safe” pieces that fit a predictable pattern of success.  According to the Wall Street Journal, “‘The Indie marketplace is really healthy right now,’ says [independent film] producer Michael London… ‘People are going to see these movies.  They’re getting nominated for awards, and they’re making money at the box office.’” (“The Sun Rises at Sundance.” Kate Kelly, Wall Street Journal, New York, NY: Jan 27, 2006. p B1.)

 

The independent market continues to prosper. The strategy of making films in well-established genres has been shown time and time again to be an effective one. Although there is no boilerplate for making a successful film, the film’s probability of success is increased with a strong story, and then the right elements – the right director and cast and other creative people involved. Being able to greenlight our own product, with the support of investors, allows the filmmakers to attract the appropriate talent to make the films a success and distinguish it in the marketplace.

 

The western film has long been a beloved part of Americana that is loved worldwide. Famous directors such as John Ford, Burt Kennedy, Sam Peckinpah, Ron Howard and Clint Eastwood have given the world a plethora of fine western adventure films that are still being shown on television worldwide.

 

The time has come for the next western genre film. Western movies have been an integral part of the film industry since its inception nearly 100 years ago and the world still anxiously awaits the next film of the American West. In recent years the genre has been underappreciated and underexploited, especially by Hollywood.

 

Recent studies have shown that theater goers are in the mood for more westerns that examine the rigors of frontier life and the moral fortitude of those who did not just survive but thrived in an age gone by but not forgotten. We plan to present western heroes in their true light, as regular, everyday heroes with all the gala cinematic retinue of color, location and personality that film fans expect.

 

In following the western film genre, we are also looking down the road to cable outlets. We believe that western heroes will be the next trend in this medium. Western films in general, and heroic characters in particular, have had increasing commercial success. Example include, The Outlaw Josey Wales, Dances With Wolves, Buffalo Soldiers, Open Range, 3:10 to Yuma and Apaloosa. These films have opened the door for Kaibab Productions, Inc. As the film genre most recognized in the world, the films will draw audiences from far and wide. There is already a western movie cable channel and there is talk of more in the future.

 

We believe that we can make exciting films starting as low as $200,000. We plan to emphasize movies that are exciting and meaningful that will attract the entire family.

 

In view of the growth of this market in the past few years, the dramatic action film genre is stronger than ever with distribution companies searching for more quality films to distribute..
