Our Team

Problems with Hollywood Film Industry

Hollywood studios are stuck in a mindless franchise and superhero spin cycle while many moviegoers CRAVE fresh and inspiring content.

Well, who needs the studios? We can create a movie we believe in, TOGETHER.

Our Solution to the Problem

An Original Movie with a Positive Story for a Global Audience

What's "When I Was A Human"?

WIWAH is Based on the Acclaimed Short Film

WIWAH already has a successful prototype: a short film of the same title distributed worldwide by Shorts International, the trusted distributor for the Academy of Motion Picture and Sciences.

This proves that the movie has significant potential for a global hit.

🎉 WIWAH's Got Hollywood Stars 🎉

Based on the strong screenplay and our successful first round on Wefunder, the following amazing Hollywood stars are attached to WIWAH.

Danny Trejo ("Spike"& "Dr. Peacock")

Called one of the Greatest Character Actors of all time, Danny Trejo ("Machete," "Heat," "Spy Kids") plays Spike, Indy's BFF, who is more than he seems and holds the key to the whimsical story of WIWAH.

Danny's incredible career adds major production value to our project. ⬇️

Danny's love for rescue dogs is well known in the community and was the primary reason he was one of the first cast members to sign on to the project. He brings his globally-recognized unique persona and extensive industry experience to the part of Spike.

Rebecca De Mornay ("Mrs. Peacock")

Rebecca De Mornay, known for her work in iconic movies such as "Risky Business" and "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle," has joined the cast as Ms. Peacock. Her recent work includes guest appearances on "Lucifer" and "Law and Order."

How "WIWAH" Makes Money 🎬📊💰

Anticipated Revenue Streams

🍿 Targeted limited domestic theatrical release & foreign sales

This strategy not only helps us build up our brand recognition but also cranks up the film's appeal in foreign markets, where we're anticipating some serious cash flow.

🍿 VOD distributions and pay & free TV platforms across multiple markets.

They should provide a steady stream of revenue through licensing deals.

🍿 Other Ancillary

  • To ensure long-term profitability, we'll also explore other ancillary avenues, such as home entertainment (Blu-ray), merchandise, and international broadcast rights, airlines, cruise ships.

A Case Study ~ "A Dog's Purpose"💵

"Forget about Avengers, Fate of the Furious, and Wolf Warriors. Forget about Ant-Man or Spider-Man or Thor. In China, Justice League is now in the dog house." - Rob Cain (Forbes.com)

A humble little movie with no major talent attached to it and a small prior audience, "A Dog's Purpose" beat out "Justice League" and earned $88 million in China in 2017, becoming one of China’s 25 top-grossing movies that year.

A movie featuring dogs and positive messaging - just like “When I Was a Human” - has incredible potential to attract the same attention.

UPDATE🙌WIWAH Champions Shelter Dogs!

WIWAH isn't just a movie – it's a movement. That's what's happening as @LAAnimalServices and WIWAH come together to make a difference.

Our movie begins with Indy, an unwanted dog whose days at the local pound are about to run out before Kimmy saves him.

Indy's experience mirrors the journeys of countless shelter dogs, and our joint campaign with @LAAnimalServices allows us to raise public awareness of the welfare of dogs at local shelters.

WIWAH and @LAAnimalServices have united with a common goal – to find loving homes for shelter dogs and save as many furry buddies as possible. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook and share.
