Creator Films is a new kind of media company. It’s a bold new experiment in the development, production, and distribution of films. It challenges the norm by activating the crowd, leaning on new technologies, and cutting out the bureaucracy by doing it all in house.
The company is owned by people who believe there are better stories to tell. People who recognize the power of a crowd to galvanize an idea to make big things happen. In short it is owned by people like you!
Our investors (dubbed "Creators") have the privilege of owning stock and participating as a valued insider in the making and distribution of faith-infused, major motion pictures and television. For many of our mission-oriented investors that is only part of their involvement. They also love the opportunity to do good; by supporting the creation of better stories that impact people through sharing the values of faith, hope, and truth.
In short, our investors are just as interested in the purpose of our company as the plans we have to grow it.
Creator Films is a new company, but it is built on the foundation of previous ventures. We have already developed, financed, and produced our first feature film; a Romantic Comedy called False Hopes.
False Hopes was developed, directed, and produced by our founder, David D. Dietrich. It is currently beginning it's distribution cycle and is fully owned by Creator Films. False Hopes is a "prototype" of the type of stories we want to tell (character driven stories, infused with faith, and fun to watch.)
It has been a hit at our special screening events and has been on the most watched list for our distribution partners. Audiences laugh, cry, and cheer. Their reviews are heartfelt and passionate. Check out what audiences have to say!
We are a company built for film making. We own the production equipment, we understand the process from start to finish, and we have a community of artists, actors, and professionals that help us produce on a budget. Films that are faith and family friendly are some of the most successful films each year.
We have three goals for this year.
1.) Raise funds to grow the company and begin marketing campaigns for current and future projects.
2.) Develop and fund our first Christmas movie. "A Christmas without Carol"
3.) Develop and fund our children's show, The Adventures of Steebie Dee.
The touching and miraculous story of a widower who finds healing and love in supernatural ways during Christmas. After the death of his beloved wife, Carol, Edward rejects his faith and anything to do with it. This faith-infused story, while inspired by “A Christmas Carol,” this unique retelling will take you on a magical journey of hope, healing and love that keeps you laughing along the way.
In recent years, Christmas themed films have exponentially increased in demand and become massively successful. That said, while many focus on Christmas cheer, festivities and romance, very few hit all those ticks while ringing true with real love, faith and hope… we wish to create a film that is both filled with the Christmas Spirit and also about the true Holy Spirit of Christmas “A Christmas Without Carol.”
Children's programming is something we are passionate about creating. Our very first children's show is all about exploring the world to learn more about it's Creator. This diverse, musically inclined, fun-filled adventure will be an instant classic that families will love to put on for their kids.
Children's programming not only presents a wonderful market opportunity, it is also a perfect place to make positive impact. Kids are ready to learn and a high energy, fast paced, adventure is always an engaging way to educate and entertain.
There’s a lot of people out there that feel like their voice isn’t heard in media. Here’s your chance to be an influencer instead of being influenced. Ask yourself, “Will I ever regret deciding to take an active stance in impacting my society for good with positive, family friendly, faith infused content and media? Or will I regret not seizing a simple opportunity to join others in making a way for our voices to be heard as well?”
Creator Films has financial statements ending December 31 2019. Our cash in hand is $5,000, as of April 2020. Over the three months prior, revenues averaged $0/month, cost of goods sold has averaged $0/month, and operational expenses have averaged $30/month.
Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
You should read the following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations together with our financial statements and the related notes and other financial information included elsewhere in this offering. Some of the information contained in this discussion and analysis, including information regarding the strategy and plans for our business, includes forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. You should review the "Risk Factors" section for a discussion of important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results described in or implied by the forward-looking statements contained in the following discussion and analysis.
We produce faith-infused movies for the world.
As an audience owned, faith based movie studio, we hope to be part of the new standard in faith based film production --meeting the demands for faith based entertainment by those in the church; and bridging the gap to those who desire high quality family friendly programming outside the church.
Given the Company’s limited operating history, the Company cannot reliably estimate how much revenue it will receive in the future, if any.
Creator Films Inc was incorporated in the State of Delaware in December 2019.
Since then, we have:
Historical Results of Operations
Our company was organized in December 2019 and has limited operations upon which prospective investors may base an evaluation of its performance.
Liquidity & Capital Resources
To date, the Company has been financed with $5,600 in debt.
After the conclusion of this Offering, should we hit our minimum funding target, our projected runway is 12 months before we need to raise further capital.
We plan to use the proceeds as set forth in this Form C under "Use of Funds". We don’t have any other sources of capital in the immediate future.
We will likely require additional financing in excess of the proceeds from the Offering in order to perform operations over the lifetime of the Company. We plan to raise capital in 4 months. Except as otherwise described in this Form C, we do not have additional sources of capital other than the proceeds from the offering. Because of the complexities and uncertainties in establishing a new business strategy, it is not possible to adequately project whether the proceeds of this offering will be sufficient to enable us to implement our strategy. This complexity and uncertainty will be increased if less than the maximum amount of securities offered in this offering is sold. The Company intends to raise additional capital in the future from investors. Although capital may be available for early-stage companies, there is no guarantee that the Company will receive any investments from investors.
Runway & Short/Mid Term Expenses
Creator Films Inc cash in hand is $0, as of April 2020. Over the last three months, revenues have averaged $0/month, cost of goods sold has averaged $0/month, and operational expenses have averaged $0/month, for an average burn rate of $0 per month. Our intent is to be profitable in 36 months.
There have been no material changes in our financials since the date our financial statements cover. Our expenses are still minimal and related to legal expenses for the startup of the company.
Creator Films has negotiated to acquire "False Hopes the Movie" (a general partnership) in exchange for 123K shares of Common Stock to be distributed among the partners (and a share of revenue to be capped out at $150,000), through contributed capital. Creator films has acquired all rights to "False Hopes" (a romantic comedy produced by the company) and assumed $10,000 in accounts payable. The debt has no interest or repayment timetables but will be paid when Creator Films is profitable.
We have begun distribution of our first product and expect to see the beginnings of revenue from exhibition and sales. As a fresh startup we will be relying on funds raised to produce additional projects and market them to increase brand recognition and direct sales. The next 3-6 months will be spent investing in branding and marketing for our first product, "False Hopes" a romantic comedy.
We hope to bring False Hopes to market in the beginning of May. By the end of 2020, we hope to generate between $30,000-75,000 in revenue from False Hopes.
Our intention to produce subsequent films under this same entity. We hope to produce films at a cadence of two projects per year, although it cannot be guaranteed. We predict it will cost $350,000 to produce our first additional film. We believe production costs will decrease with subsequent films. If we do not raise $350,000, these funds will be used to market False Hopes as well as branding and marketing for additional projects.
Entertainment and media are consumer-driven businesses that require a large amount of marketing. The company will be dependent on future raises of capital needed to both produce films and market them. If future fundraising is not successful growth will be slower and it could keep the company from achieving profitability.
Film and Television distribution is an established industry with a great deal of infrastructure in place. Much of our infrastructure will need to be built through partnerships with existing entertainment companies. Success will be dependent on continuing to build those relationships.
Community involvement is critical to the success of our business model. As investors and followers join our community we must keep their interest and enthusiasm If followers are not excited about our direction this will increase marketing costs and lower overall revenues.
The world wide effects of the Covid 19 Pandemic are yet to be realized and could drastically change economies and film markets. The uncertainty that this presents could cause unforeseen trends that would make it difficult to compete for attention of viewers and marketshare.
Media distribution is a very competitive industry. We will need to choose projects that separate us from the pack and grab the consumers attention. If our projects do not expand past our niche of the Church it will be difficult to grow the company.
Faith based organizations have been targeted by lawsuits in the past based on their convictions. Though we do not have any intentions of being controversial in this manner there are risks when dealing with issues of faith that someone could bring a lawsuit against a project, contractor, employee, or other associated entity that could bring legal action against us creating additional expenses that would drain revenues and focus on production of projects.
Our future success depends on the efforts of a small management team. The loss of services of the members of the management team may have an adverse effect on the company. There can be no assurance that we will be successful in attracting and retaining other personnel we require to successfully grow our business.
