RedFlag News

RedFlag News

Crunchbase | Website | Twitter | Facebook | Linkedin

Ranked in the Top 50 Conservative Websites for 2013 by Alexa Rank, RedFlag News (RFN) maintains a news aggregation service that spotlights carefully selected news and commentary on a real-time basis. In 2009, after being unable to find a website that would simply “red flag” news and opinion as a warning of corrupt politics or a problem with news media bias, J.R.

Elliott began work on the website that is now RedFlag News— contributing thousands of unpaid hours away from his own family and career to bring the news to the website’s loyal readers. With his knack of finding good stories and sources (financed by the spare change found in the couches of his home), RFN has blossomed into a product that powers tens of thousands of independent thinkers’ news addiction and currently serves more than two million of hits per month.

Defined by J.R. Elliott’s insistence on a news aggregation website that provides an unparalleled user experience from a robust core, every pixel of RedFlagNews.com is engineered with the mindset that the interface will be timeless, creative, and delightful.

That mindset, along with his execution, has allowed RFN to grow organically without any advertising and prove to be a wise choice for those looking to expand their news experience outside the liberal mainstream media. Because RFN is clearly focused on conservative news and opinion, and the multiple tangents the Conservative Movement offers, its audience is conveniently focused, yet broad within its borders.

RFN is popular with bloggers, Pinterest and Facebook users — an increasingly influential demographic — together with: • early adopters of sites like Drudge Report, Breitbart and Huffington Post; • almost half of the United States Congress; • news junkies like ourselves; • journalists and nationally syndicated talk radio hosts; • super PACs and political campaigns; • members of the Independent, Libertarian, Conservative, and Tea Party movements. A majority of RFN visitors come to its site to find the latest in breaking news and opinion.

Its audience is completely devoted to and immersed in what the Conservative Movement has to offer. They are concerned Americans who are highly engaged, activism minded and thoroughly aware of current events.

Wide Limited Release Film Distribution Fund

Wide Limited Release Film Distribution Fund

Crunchbase | Website | Twitter | Facebook | Linkedin

The Wide Limited Release Film Distribution Fund is seeking capital to scale-up regionally profitable films to reach a national audience, thus increasing their ROI exponentially. This is not a movie production company (but that is the closest category available among the industry choices Equity Net provides).

This is a fund to leverage the marketing of proven independent films and incorporates deals with the distributors. Wide Limited Release will choose from the best films that have already proven their dollar-in/dollar-out investment/profit function regionally and test them for national acceptance.

Those that test well will receive proper and appropriate capital to go national, increasing current profits from hundreds of thousands of dollars to tens of millions of dollars. We have a slate of successful, profitable films that have only had limited release but shown exceptional ROI in those targeted areas.

The only thing holding them back from wide release and even bigger returns is capital. Wide Limited is looking for accredited investors who share its vision and is capable of providing seed money of $5,000,000.

However, Wide Limited will risk only $300,000 for initial tests before proceeding to the next level. The funds will be used for advertising buys and earned media exposure to take proven profitable regional film distribution models, test them in other regions of the US, and then scale up to the national market for significant returns if tests prove successful.

Films are released either in a limited release (to a small targeted market) or a wide release (to the nation or world). Appropriately capitalized, Wide Limited Release will recoup every marketing dollar spent within six months and earn its profits from the DVD exploitation of such films in the next 18 months after theatrical release.

Good Faith Film Fund

Good Faith Film Fund

Crunchbase | Website | Twitter | Facebook | Linkedin

The Good Faith Film Fund is seeking capital to leverage the success of its management in film development, production and distribution to provide Hollywood-sized budgets and Academy-award winning production values to middle America, values-driven, faith-based films. The first movie is already scripted and developed with an Academy-award winning film director attached who has production and P&A financing lined up when the fund can provide a minimum of $1,000,000 in collateral.

The movie will be made for $5,000,000 and is based on a New York Times best seller. A faith-based film distributor has pledged to invest $5,000,000 in P&A funding to market the film nationally once the film is made.

The principals of the Good Faith Film Fund have experience producing, booking, releasing and distributing films that have achieved hundreds of millions of dollars in box office revenue and millions of units in DVD sales through major theatrical chains such as Regal, Cinemark, and AMC and big box retailers such as Wal-Mart, Costco, Barnes and Noble, and Books-A-Million. The fund simply needs $1,000,000 that will be placed in an interest bearing bank account to collateralize a loan that will fund the production and P&A for the movie.

The interest bearing account will pay 12% annual interest on the fund to the investor with a complete return of the capital within two years but no sooner than one, at which point if not paid back in full with promised interest, the loan will convert to a percentage in the film distribution partner’s successful 28-year old book publishing business that currently has $5,000,000 in annual revenues and is growing.. .
