COMPLETION FUNDING SOUGHT.
The term "Completion Funding" suggests that the original budget had not been properly met. While that can sometimes be the case, it is not the case with Orbiter. Producer/director David Rosler invested his own funds entirely to get his Orbiter screenplay off the ground and get critical production work going, so much does he believe in Orbiter's message and potential for a return on investment. No other investors were initially involved.
The "faith-based" movie genre is the new success market in the U.S. and in many areas of the world. To be sure, it requires knowledge of the audience base from an inside perspective, and with sincerity and belief. The audience for these films no more wants their values misrepresented any more than Star Trek fans want a re-boot of the classic franchise in which the Enterprise is called a "rocket ship" and Mr. Spock is "Doctor Spock from the planet Mars". That said, there is no more motion picture market open for success than that which appeals to people of faith in particular.
Examples of low-budget faith-based movie successes which did it right abound. Fireproof, produced for $500,000.00 made $35 million at the box office and another $20 million in DVD sales. War Room for $3 million made over $60 million at the box office (DVD sales unknown). God's Not Dead made for $2 million earned $67 million at the box office. There are many examples.
Orbiter knows its audience and the audiences will reward Orbiter and future films like it as they have others, so they can spend a day at the movies with popcorn and soda for the kids and have their most important feelings and beliefs spoken to them properly. In a world in which Hollywood sometimes appears to actually dislike believers, while there are terrific exceptions like Tyler Perry and Denzel Washington, too often TV comics and announcers degrade those of faith. Even cartoons attempt to humiliate them. Orbiter, like the others, will be a huge hit to its core audience, perhaps setting records because it is entirely unique. Add to that the stereoscopic 3D and special effects and you have a sure-fire winner for the younger audiences.
Orbiter is suspenseful, exciting and inspiring with a powerful message worked seamlessly through a storyline which speaks to the concerns of today. Orbiter is first-class all the way.

"A winner"..... "Great story"... "(Orbiter's) got all sorts of things going on in there to attract all sorts of different people. Action, it's in space, which you know is a big draw, and of course, it's got the faith-based angle as well so it sounds like a winner to me, I can't wait to see this thing."... "My partner will tell you, I'm not a big sci-fi guy, but I'd go see this."... "Yeah, this is gonna be great. I love the premise on this."
~ Bill & Joel In The Morning, WDUN 550, Atlanta/North Georgia's most popular morning drivetime radio show.
"This is a great project... I made a donation. It wasn't much and they're not asking for much. Twenty-five dollars. Just 'beer money'. Twenty-five dollars. It's a challenge. Match it if you can.."

"The whole premise of the movie sounds fantastic.... I love the fact that (David Rosler) is targeting young people as well, on trying to make them proud of their faith again..... It would make sense to invest in this."
~ Real news, Morning Drivetime with Mr. Henry and Nick Crawford, 92.3 FM & 760 AM, Knoxville, Tennessee
"A high-tech, beautifully done, well-scripted, great action film with Christian and sci-fi values in it. That's the bottom line." ~ Bill Myers, The Bill Myers Show, KMED, Oregon
"I've got grandkids, I like your approach of trying to reach younger people... I'm really looking forward to seeing (Orbiter)". ~ The Lanny James Show, KMLB 540 & 105
"(Orbiter) is focused on breaking into the genre of Christian film, that predominantly has not had this high quality of a film, 3D effects and the ability to reach beyond just a Christian audience but to reach into a secular audience as well, with a very well crafted script and a very well crafted story... not a (typically) cheesy Christian film but with new technology. Please donate." ~ Pastor Greg Young, The Chosen Generation, a nationally syndicated radio program
