THE LAW OF MOISES - BRIEF SYNOPSIS

The Law of Moises is a Family Adventure film about Destiny and Dreams, whether the dreams we choose are actually the dreams destined for us. The dream that Moises has is to leave his dead end town to make films. However, his dream is interrupted when frogs, flies, and a slew of other biblical plagues threaten to destroy his hometown and force Moises to make a decision to either follow his dream or live out his purpose and save his hometown that won’t survive without him.

Crystal is a 20-year veteran in the film industry as producer, writer and actor. Crystal serves as Producer of Ark Productions, founded in 2003. To date Ark has produced several short films and commercials in and around Chicago.


Melissa serves Ark in various capacities across business development, marketing and operations.


The Law of Moises is in the Development Stage.  This is the 1st stage in the film production process. Ark believes that there are 3 important elements needed in this stage: Content, Market and Distribution.

 

Content is King.  In film, the content is the screenplay along with the key elements that make the screenplay great. Content is a great story with rich and engaging characters. Content is also the director that shapes the film, the producer that guides the film and the actors and crew members that breathe life into the film.

So far, the screenplay has undergone NUMEROUS rewrites and edits and has been vetted before industry professionals including several recognizable actors that have expressed interest in the screenplay.  $7500 of your donation is allocated to making an offer to these actors to turn their interest into commitment. 

If content is king, then Marketing is Queen. In film, the market is its audience. What good is a great film if no one can see it? Especially, for independent films, like The Law of Moises, is it important that the audience is engaged beginning now.

So far, Ark has identified the film’s audience groups and $6500 of your donations is allocated to hiring a Marketing and Public Relations firm to access, reach, build, and engage the film’s audience to ensure success. 


Distribution or Buyer. Distribution such as Netflix,  Disney Pictures, or iTunes is the vehicle that gets the film (Content) to the Market (Audience). Most filmmakers make a film without distribution, only to find out that there is no buyer for the film. Usually because distributors look for key elements in the film that they believe are worthy of buying – namely - does the film have a good story, who is starring in the film (Content) and does the film have an audience (Market).

 So far, we have several meetings set up at the American Film Market (this is one of the premier markets where films are bought and sold), to discuss with several distributors and sales agents about The Law of Moises. $3000 of your donation is allocated for legal services to ensure that any agreements made will be the most favorable for the film’s success.

THE FINE PRINT -

• If you become an extra ($500 reward), you must be a US citizen or have a US work visa, and not be a member of SAG/AFTRA. If you do have a line in the film, we cannot guarantee it will make it into the final edit. A lot of times things are filmed that do not make the final cut. That's just part of the creative process.

• You must be over 18 or accompanied by a parent or legal guardian (who will count as your plus one) to attend the screenings or visit the set. Extras and CREW must also be over 18.

• Some rewards may require additional paperwork. If you are appearing in or working on the film, you will have to sign a release.

• This fundraising campaign is subject to all applicable Fanbacked  rules/regulations, movie guild rules and applicable laws. If any of this conflicts, we will work with you in good faith to give you a substitute reward.

Movie making is a crazy business with a lot of unknown factors. We are starting with a script we are really proud of. From there we will assemble the best possible cast and crew. It's impossible to guarantee everything will come together exactly as planned, but in the end, we will have created a movie that hopefully all of us can be proud of. Thank you so much for supporting us. We could not do this without each and every one of you. Looking forward to sharing this journey with you!
