Synopsis: The time is today, and 240 miles above the earth the International Space Station is experiencing another day of experimentation and technical routine when an explosion blows out part of an American node on the ISS. It quickly becomes apparent that as World War III has begun on earth, it has also begun in space among the various people representing their countries on the ISS. Only determined faith in God can a victorious peace be attained, on the station and down, below, on earth.
David Rosler has written and will produce and direct the feature, as well as ensuring the creation of the visual effects required to tell this particular story effectively and realistically. David has over 35 years experience in the industry as a producer, director, animator, storyboard artist/director and creator of special effects. SEE A SHORT LIST OF DAVID'S OLDER CREDENTIALS (he does not make more recent clients available on the internet) at DAVID ROSLER.COM. NOTE: Apparently there are a few people in the motion picture industry named David Rosler. To avoid confusion, here is the website for Orbiter's creator, David Rosler
Orbiter's Associate Producer, Katherine Shell, spent several years working for Warner Brothers Home Video Distribution, in charge of several US territories.her producing abilities, gleaned from years of trade show organization, coupled with an intimate knowledge of motion picture sales, is proving invaluable to making orbiter become manifest on a modest budget.
David's composer in Chicago has written, orchestrated and conducted before full orchestras and has created amazingly vast and polished music for David's previous motion pictures.
Lonny Buinis, one of David's most trusted associates, with many years of running one of the largest Planetariums on the east coast, with a Masters in physics and a B.A. in computer science, and for whom an astronomical observatory was recently named, is scientific advisor on Orbiter, a similar role he played years ago which helped to result in the visually extravagant "Special Effects Alive' special effects series for the Planetarium industry, which David created and produced, being a huge hit with hundreds of Planetaria all over the world, unanimously called "The best product on the market".
David has a written agreement with a nation-wide Christian youth organization for essentially-free production assistance. This means completion of Orbiter also helps many young men and women help to recover their lives by, in-part- working on Orbiter.
As the trailer proves, the special effects in 3D have received opinions that appear unanimous: the special effects in the Orbiter compare very favorably with the best, last word in outer space special effects movies, 7-time Academy Award winner, "Gravity".
Large theater chains in the United States have been contacted and the project discussed, and are ready and willing to accept David as the distributor of Orbiter, a critical financial aspect insomuch as delivery to a hungry audience is essentially assured, bypassing the usual confiscatory third-party distributor in the U.S. theatrical market. Related, one of the largest labs in the world, creating Digital Cinema Packages for the biggest of the major Hollywood studios, has enthusiastically agreed to handle the creation and delivery of all the 2D and critically important 3D DCPs of Orbiter to ensure the highest quality theatrical exhibition and 100% guaranteed reliable delivery to the theaters. It should be noted that Orbiter will be the first truly Independent feature motion picture in 3D which they have agreed to handle. The majority of independent faith-based motion pictures pull in a very reliable average of $60 million, whether they cost $500,000 or $20 million, they seem to earn more or the less the same on average.
The key to success at the box office for Christian motion pictures today is word-of-mouth promotion on radio and social media, with mailings and emailings to churches. That is the process which turned extremely average (in-fact, below-average) interpersonal Christian dramas like Fireproof into $50 million blockbusters. Once live action is completed we will create exciting advertising graphics and get them online along with the motion picture website. This will be followed with exciting 30-second-to-one-minute advance trailers posted on the internet to heighten anticipation even further. Christian talk radio stations are already being lined up and there are 600 such stations in the United States, providing promotion to millions, over and over, for free. Our exclusives to the Christian motion picture genre – stereoscopic 3D and high-end special effects – will push the limits of audience expectation – and audience turnout.
David will self-distribute to dramatically more fully reap returns by eliminating the middle-man distributor; this can be done by capitalizing on the very exceptionally strong and essentially unique market attractiveness of a 3D stereoscopic live-action Christian motion picture with special effects, something never even attempted before. In 2014, 9 of the top 10 and 15 of the top 25 films were 3D releases.
David has had several conversations with executives at a very large theater chain in the United States and is able to comply completely with their technical specifications, which are actually minimal , including 4K distribution and the demand that the release print master Digital Cinema Packages are made at (name upon request) whose rates are affordable and with whom David has already forged a good communication relationship.
1. Repayment in full proportionate to investment from producer's gross (not net) movie proceeds, paid quarterly until re-payed if not re-payed with the first quarter commencing upon distribution. Repayment in full to investors is completed before any proceeds are acquired by the Producer/filmmaker, David Rosler.
2. Investors will receive a return of 30% of the producer's gross, meaning not counting the amount taken by distributors/theaters. Producer's gross will be 70% of the total amount raised if an unprecedentedly high 30% is given to the theaters to ensure playing at the theaters. David will offer the theaters 20% initially and if successful, will add the additional 10% of the producer's gross to the investors' take.
Theoretical Worst Case Scenario
We assume all David's Christian motion picture will be absolutely terrific. But even if it was only an average motion picture – or below average, such as the Christian films listed previously, and not in 3D, and David was limited to initially distributing less than 200 copies, an extremely low, poverty-row proposition, even then the outlook is very bright:
The America Bible Study organization ran a poll of 42,855 people and determined that the top 9 most Bible-minded cities in the United States are Knoxville TN ; Shreveport, LA; Chattanooga, TN; Birmingham, AL; Springfield, MO; Charlotte, NC; Lynchberg, VA; Huntsville, AL; Charleston, WV. Including a 35-mile radius for each city, there are 148 independent motion picture theaters apart from any associated with theater chains (most with 2-8 screens each). 148 theaters = 32,560 seats assuming the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) average estimate of 220 seats per theater. Average ticket price is $10.00 ($13.00 for 3D) = $325,600.00 for only one show on one day at capacity for all theaters combined, or 4 shows a day at 25% capacity, which equals $2,279,200.00 for a single 7-day week. Double that to $4,558,400.00 if it plays 4 times a day to half-capacity for a week, only in those very few theaters targeted where David's motion picture almost must by definition prove to be extreme red meat for those areas who will have been made aware of the motion picture on the radio and internet.
Continuing the worst-case scenario to allay concerns, if each of those few Bible belt-intense theaters average half auditorium capacity on 4 shows a day a day for a month, then even under those extremely tepid circumstances, the motion picture almost must, in theory in a worst case scenario, make at least $9,116,800.00 in one month.
Remove the theater owners' 30% ($2,735,040.00) leaves $6,381,760.00
Subtract $188,000.00 to repay investors leaves $6,193,835.00.00.
30% of $6,193,760.00 = $1,858,128.00 profit dispersed to the investors proportionate to the investment of each investor within 4-6 weeks upon initial distribution, in hypothetically 9 months after the investment is made.
It must be understood that the previous hypothetical as an absolute worst-case scenario if David's theatrical Christian motion picture is at all reasonably well made. The larger potential beyond the worst case scenario positively sparkles. All true numbers. All facts. David has proven that he can deliver in terms of elaborate, 3D stereoscopic movies on a budget.
