I was delighted and humbled when Erik asked me to become the Lead Investor. This film has everything that makes independent films ultimately successful. First, it has a compelling, timely, and marketable idea that can attract a wide audience: This film is perfectly timed; audiences with a wide variety of political beliefs may find this movie and the experience of watching it with friends, family, and strangers quite moving. Second, it has experienced, talented, and committed people behind the project: Erik is an Emmy-winning writer and producer who has already had wonderful success in big-budget productions, and he literally wrote the book on screenwriting. Third, there are solid casting, production, post-production, and marketing and distribution plans: Check out the timeline - attainable, thoughtful, and realistic. Fourth, it has a high chance to pay off: a solid return is quite realistic, and if it really is the perfect film at the perfect time, as I suspect, it has the potential to be one of the most successful crowdfunded films ever (no guarantees, of course). Please join me in investing in this exciting project.
