INVESTOR INFORMATION

for

The Man Who Beat Mark Spitz


What is the investment...?

An international award-winning screenplay to be turned into an award-winning film that has already been described as a combination of Forrest Gump & American Graffiti.

How much is needed to make the film...?

Ironically, we need an investment of approximately $2,500 just to find that out, that is, to hire a reader who goes over the script line by line to determine how much it will cost to shoot each scene. The low budget model we hope to replicate is Napoleon Dynamite (2004), costing less than $400,000 yet grossing approximately $46 million.  A high end rough estimate to the film's total cost (after all, costs have gone up from 13 years ago) could possibly reach $2.5 million.  

Again, we need $2,500 to find a more accurate figure. 


How much can the film make...?

A comparable "sports film" made just down the road in Odessa, Texas is Friday Night Lights (2004), which cost $30 million and made $62 million at the box office - however - important to note is that 99% percent of those ticket sales were domestic, with only 1% or $694,849 coming from foreign sales

Unlike high school football in the USA, swimming & the connotation of the Olympics is a world-wide recognized sport & entity, which is a reason some efforts were made to test the story internationally in film festivals of other countries:




Thanks to an anonymous investor we have been able to hire retired IBM computer wiz & business analysis
to create a mathematical model based on only 20% of every competitive swimmer in the world seeing the movie, and the preliminary estimates so far of only factoring in the countries of Russia, Mexico, China & India looking very promising:
$68 million in foreign sales.

That's a very low 20% estimate in the above four countries alone, and perhaps for a more accurate percentage one could ask:

"What percentage of high school football players & coaches in your town saw
Friday Night Lights?"

Marcos' formula also computes those with other relationships to swimming as well as those interested in Olympic stories.

 You may invest any amount in multiples of $100 by signing up below. You will receive an investment certificate as seen below: 



 Along with the return on your investment, you will also be listed on the film's credits in this fashion:

Under $1,000 = Participant

$1,000 - $10,000 = Investor

$10,000 - $50,000 = Line Producer

$50,000 - $250,00 = Producer

$250,000 & above = Executive Producer

Currently we are courting Hal "Corky" Kessler from Chicago, who not only is one of the best entertainment lawyers in the business, but has the knowledge to create the investments to function as a form of stock that one sees on the exchange, besides getting the screenplay in front of Academy Award Winning directors & casting agents.

It cost us $850 just for Hal to read the script, which he liked, however it will cost us $5,000 to have him start working for us...


As you can see, we are collecting the best people in the business to make this an Academy Award quality film and one that is highly profitable for all who take part.
