Abused Authority - Independent Film

by Faith Diggs
(Screenwriter, Director & Producer Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois)

"Abused Authority" written, directed & produced by Faith Diggs is about a ruthless cop who abuses authority from domestic abuse to abusing citizens to framing his partner. He loves only one person in his twisted, demented world, his son, "Giles". "Giles" comes home to find his mother on the floor, knocked down by his father. He rushes to his bike, grabs it and rushes out the door. One evening after "Louvell" argues with the Lieutenant and partner, he leaves in a frenzy, storming to the car and speeding off. His son "Giles" and friend "Buddy" are out on a dirt road riding their bikes. "Louvell" speeds, "Giles" turns to leave, "Louvell" speeds, "Giles" paddles, "Louvell" makes impact with his son. He doesn't recognize him due to him wearing Buddy's helmet concealing his face. "Louvell" gets out, looks around and buries the body. After a few days, apprehension overwhelms him, rushing to his car, he speeds hastily to the grave, begins digging and finds the unthinkable!

  • Just want to thank you for your materials and help over the past year. I could not have raised the $1.5 million or made this film without the materials you provided -- and for $99? The bargain of my career!

  • I'm now sending out my completed business plan/film proposal document to potential investors and the one comment I'm getting back almost immediately is that it's so well laid out and professional. Believe me, first impressions really do count.

  • This is perfect! I have potential investors but I had no idea how to prepare a professional investment package to present to them. (I'm an artiste', not a business person. :) ) The information is clear and easy to understand, and Melissa is very prompt in answering emails.

  • When I came across the Business Plan Tools and the Finance Guide, I felt like I could stop searching for the pot of gold...I’d found it. In one place, with clear, easy to follow materials and spreadsheets, my questions were answered.

  • Hi Melissa! I purchased Package #3 a couple of days ago, and I feel like I'm taking a crash course in film financing. So far, what I've read and learned has been invaluable. Thank you!

  • I've made short films before, but this is my first feature, and the first film I've tried raising money for. This template, actually the whole package, has been invaluable and well worth the money I spent on it. So much information is packed into what I got that I'm almost dizzy from it all.
