“We are very excited about our new web portal, www.miniamerica.org, and the new fundraising opportunity, PROJECT 5650,” said Eric de Groot, managing general partner of Mini America Development. “Look for more information about a press conference, promotions and presentations very soon.”

Mini America Development is not only looking for accredited investors, but also wants to provide an affordable opportunity for Americans from around the U.S. to support the goals of entrepreneurs to come together and celebrate patriotism in this educational theme park.

“Project 5650 is a groundbreaking opportunity,” de Groot explained. “We are looking for 56 ‘Mini-Pioneers’ in each of the 50 states. Each of the state’s 56 people would represent the signers of the 1776 Declaration of Independence. Project 5650 creates a total network of 2,800 ‘mini founding pioneers’ who will help shape Mini America, focus on the promotion of Made in America products and services, and use networking opportunities.”

By contributing $50.00, devoted and patriotic citizens can be the first in their state to become a member of a foundation that connects, transforms and builds this great country. Darrellene Lindsey, founder of Darrellene Designs in Plano, Texas, is Mini America’s first official vendor. All mini pioneers will receive a Made in the USA coaster designed byDarrellene Designs. In addition, one lucky winner will have a street named after them in Mini America.

Marketing Executive Donna Wise is enthusiastic about the future commenting, “We are very excited about the new web portal, www.miniamerica.org, and the new fundraising opportunity, PROJECT 5650. Look for more information about a press conference, promotions and presentations very soon.”

On April 18, 2013, Atlanta-based The Ritz Group will host the Chumming for Crowdfunding networking meeting during their Shark Attack event. Larry White, CEO of the company has invited de Groot to be ‘bait’ and present Project 5650 and other Mini America Crowdfunding campaigns to the panel, also known as sharks.

New FilmFunder Crowdfunding Website Targets Hollywood Film & Entertainment Professionals

17 Apr

By Robert Hoskins

FilmFunder, created by active film producers, Jude Tucker and Stephen Fiske, is one of the first crowdfunding platforms geared specifically towards film professionals. The crowdfunding phenomenon has quickly taken on a prominent role in the vast landscape of film production and finance. Already this year, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences has lauded two crowdfunded projects with filmmaking’s highest honor.

In addition, the “Veronica Mars” movie, based on the popular TV series, rose over $2 million dollars in just twelve hours on Kickstarter. Now, FilmFunder enters the scene to bring crowdfunding to professional educated investment in motion pictures to get the entertainment industry back to work for good.

Currently, the prerequisites for listing a project on a crowdfunding platform, such as Kickstarter, are minimal. As a consequence, the market has become crowded with projects of all types and quality seeking financing.

FilmFunder entered the crowdfunding space because motion picture investment is a prime target for crowdsourcing due to each film’s startup-like structure and relatively short exit period, typically 12-18 months. However, the number of motion pictures seeking funding in any given year is greater than the typical number of startups in other industries. Therefore, it’s to be expected that motion picture crowdfunding be fraught with overcrowding and unsuccessful campaigns.

FilmFunder brings to life the vision of a carefully curated crowdsourcing platform that would focus only on the most developed film projects. FilmFunder’s goal is to create a symbiotic relationship between investors and producers, allowing a higher project success rate and recurring participation by investors.

“Producers have been unsure of many crowdfunding platforms due to the ‘closed door’ nature of the film development industry,” said Jude Tucker, feature film producer and creator of FilmFunder. “We worked hard to create a platform that preserves the traditional fundraising methods, but streamlines the process for the future of motion picture finance.”

Each project is seen only by investors or investment firms, not by all members of the platform. This gives all producers a safe place to conduct business and get their projects into production, creating much needed jobs in the film industry. Additionally, producers often incur the costs of generating sales estimates or legal documentation during the fundraising process. FilmFunder can assist by providing forms and tools that producers can use as a starting point in creating these documents, allowing more time for creativity.

In another new crowdfunding advance, FilmFunder also mandates that each project supply certain documentation to enable investors to make educated decisions about their investments. Each project will include a significant amount of due diligence material so that potential investors can make their investment decision without a long due diligence process. The platform also includes a rights tracking tool to assist in accurate reporting and distribution of revenue to each investor involved with a FilmFunder project. Finally, all projects submitted through FilmFunder will be issued a completion bond and insurance to provide additional investor protection.

Investing in a film should be simple. FilmFunder automates the process to allowing for quick and painless investment transactions. To maintain a high level of quality, all project applications will be carefully reviewed and vetted by a team of two pre-qualified, bond-approved line producers, or “FilmFunder Ambassadors.”

Starting on April 16th, FilmFunder is accepting the first project applications from motion picture producers. In early May, accredited investors will be permitted to browse and review projects for investment. Once the SEC fully activates crowdfunding, FilmFunder projects will be open for investment to all individuals.
