I'll start with the nitty-gritty and then talk more about what the film is all about for those that want to read on.

After spending 15 years writing the screenplay, and another year securing locations and creating storyboards my team and I are now in the financing stage. So far, several film investment companies are actively trying to raise all or part of the 3.3M production budget. Their job is made easier if we satisfy the below criteria:

- Create a production schedule (where they METICULOUSLY break down every scene in the screenplay and from it create a budget and schedule) and sales estimates by territory (meaning a list of estimates showing how much our film will make in every foreign market based on similar films in the past). This costs $6,000 and is very complicated, but once we have it, the film investment companies are far more likely to get us the 3.3M we need to produce the film.

The documents we're buying with the $6,000 are effectively risk mitigation data that allows the investors to invest the 3.3M we need to produce the film confidently.

We'd love to have you on board, so please pledge, and join us on The Quest for Perpetual Bliss.

THE QUEST FOR PERPETUAL BLISS, a family-friendly comedy.

SYNOPSIS: After High School, a modern-day Peter Pan and his millennial sidekick discover plans for an advanced solar-powered, self-sustaining, food-generating biosphere with alien origins and set out on a quest to build it before they’re forced to grow up and get jobs. In the end, they use the technology to save the world rather than themselves.

Besides delivering the gut-wrenching laughter you almost medicinally need once a year, the film speaks of the fears of growing up and getting married. The Y-Generation AKA Millennials (those born between 1980 and 2010) have a reportedly high number of underdeveloped males who seem to live with their parents too long, and push off getting married. Many have what psychologists call “The Peter Pan Syndrome.” My film motivates them to grow up, do more with their lives and be all the can be. It spotlights the Solar Decathlon, a college based competition headed by the Department of Energy that advances clean energy. Larry Thomas, the actor who played Seinfeld's Soup Nazi, is on board for a small role. Other notable crew members are attached.

Risks and challenges

All film investment is risky. The risk becomes somewhat minimized when a long-time professional film making crew is on board to work on the film.

With a known actor and 2 producers with a combined 70 years in the film industry already on the project, along with an award winning DP and other notable crew members, not to mention an extremely strong screenplay, we have no doubts that the film will be successful.

One of the phe producer is also a casting director, who has cast over 400 projects and has ties to phenomenal actors. She is certain that those actors will be drawn to this fun, entertaining and insightful script. Both producers have strong ties to major film distributors, a must in ensuring the investors' ROI.
