SEEKING PARTNERS FOR THE INDEPENDENT MOVIE WAREHOUSE
I seek nine individals who would like to take part in a unique endeavor.

I would like, if possible, to take on
nine partners who are willing to work with me
to get the company up and running nationwide.
This is a 12 month process where the
Independent Movie Warehouse (IMW) will
be built from the ground up by the partners
and the independent franchises.
No work will begin until I get the
nine partners to work with me.

What is the Independent Movie Warehouse?

In 1995, I conceived of a new business plan
in order to promote and distribute only independent films.
While operating from a central location with clear aims,
IMW will be made up entirely of independent theater owners.
This concept can work only one way in actuality, and
therefore must demand a "Business Covenant."
Without this "Business Covenant" and the cooperation
of all involved, the business would fail dramatically.


Why hasn't anything like this been done before?

All previous attempts to market films by
independent producers on a national level failed,
primarily because the business model used was the same
business model used by distributors for commercial
films produced by studios and major producers.
The studio plan cannot work with independent films,
because the entire scope of the business is
entirely different, from stars headlining films
to huge budgets for those films.
Every model for independent film distribution
which relies on the studio model will fail.


Is it possible to run a national chain as independent franchises?

Using independent franchises is the only way.
Of course, this involves cooperation, and it also involves risk.
If a single company wanted to purchase 500 theaters
nationwide and start a national chain of theaters
for only independent films, the company would have to
leverage more than $100-million to $200-million
to either buy or build theaters, and then it
would lose money for the next 15 - 20 years,
while trying to pay off the huge debt.
If, however, 500 independent franchises came
together as a business consortium, following
the proper guidelines for operation, then
the debt burden would be distributed over 500 small
companies, not on the shoulders of one company
which could never by itself make any kind of
reasonable profit at the national level.
Additionally, there can be no multiplex system,
becase they will not be distributing films
from large studios with major stars.
All theaters will have one screen only.
The economics of this takes time to explain.


What is the difference between the distribution of studio films
and independent films on a practical level?

This takes time to explain because
the distributor has a part of the argument, and
the studios have another part of the argument.
A distributor with a multiplex has only one concern.
He wants the gate receipts to cover his operation,
and he wants to make a profit overall for the day.
The distributor doesn't care which movie makes
the money for him, because he has ten movies.
By offering a choice of ten screens, he can now
simply tally the daily revenue, regardless of the
fact that some movies have only five people
in the audience at 3:30 PM in the afternoon.
The evening shows and the big movies make up
for the huge loss the distributor takes on
afternoon hours for poor films.
With independent films, however, this multiplex
model will never work because there is no way
that any group of independent films can make
enough revenue for the distributor to cover the
losses of the poorer independent films.
In other words, IMW plans only evening shows
during the week and only one screen to promote
one film over a two-week period.
Every two weeks, a new independent film will open.
