Michigan Movie Production Company looks to make Independent movie funding history and you can be a part of it.

August 2008 Detroit, Michigan ? Box Truck Productions, LLC a Michigan-based movie production company, announced their search for collaborators for a new movie. Box Truck Productions, LLC formed in January of 2007 is a full-service movie production firm, which has worked on various Michigan-based movies. Their credits include ?Phantoms of Route 13? with Great Lakes Cinema, ?She Kills? with Planet 4 Films, and ?Cupie?, an original Box Truck Production, LLC film short.

The new film proposed by Box Truck Productions, LLC, will explore a set of local legends, The Michigan Dog man and the Beast of Bray Road. The film is a tail of terror in the woods of western Michigan, where a group of friends face the fabled Beast that lurks in the most innocent of shadows.

The unique aspect of this venture is the manner in which Box Truck Productions, LLC is going about seeking funding.

Wes K. and Roger F., co-owners of Box Truck, explain; ?We have a website named HelpOurMovieLive.com. On this site we are offering the sale of 2 million pixels for advertising purposes, which will include a graphic of the purchaser?s choice plus a link to their website. The cost of each pixel is only $1.00 but due to sizing issues the smallest block will be 10 pixels by 10 pixels or $100.00.?

Admittedly, Wes and Roger know that this is not a new idea? but here?s their twist. ?Not only will the purchaser of a pixel block get great advertising on a high traffic site, but also for those that purchase a block of $1000.00 or more, they will receive a Special Thank you within the ending credits of the movie. For those that purchase a block of $10,000.00 or more, they will receive the title of Executive Producer within the movie credits plus they will receive a personal copy of the movie when it is released on DVD, ?So you can show your family and friends that your name is in a movie? explains Wes.

As a special incentive, Box Truck Productions, LLC will donate some of the proceeds to local charities once all the blocks are sold. Box Truck Productions, LLC feels strongly that Michigan movies should assist not only local filmmakers and local artists, but also assist the community.

?So visit HelpOurMovieLive.com and purchase a pixel block today,? urges Wes and Roger.

I think these guys should concentrate on more traditional and professional ways to fund a movie.

I suppose this page says it all:

http://www.helpourmo...ve.com/top.html

The number one factor one needs to weigh before investing in a movie is the track record of the producer(s). Since these two have none, this wouldn't be a very good investment, would it?

It's operations like this that give indie filmmakers a bad name. Some one could get burned financially with this on so many levels.

The original version of this idea sold out of pixels and earnt a 21 year old university student over a million dollars, so it's not a completely farfetched idea if it's run properly. The problem now is that it's been done... would have been better if they'd come up with something original.
