It’s “TRUE ROMANCE” meets “GODFATHER” in this coming of age Drama. Young “Brandon Washington” is a choir boy high school senior who meets “Kinaya,” an older woman who finds a seductive interest in him.

Events intensify as Brandon discovers there is a bigger difference between them than just age: Kinaya happens to be the boss of the biggest organized gang syndicate in the city, maybe even the world. When Kinaya introduces her new young friend to the crime family, they take Brandon under their wings, showing him the luxurious side of organized crime. Brandon, being the only surviving relative of his elderly grandmother, struggles with the fact that he hardly has any family ties; because of this, he finds a bit of serenity and comfort in the bond this unlikely crime family offers him. Brandon's Intrigue is soon met by Influence, as this Impressionable young man slowly transforms from a choir boy to Al Capone; however, the luxury is later combined with an equal amount of violence, as the inevitably evil side of organized crime raises its ugly head. Brandon forces himself to stick with it... as his love for Kinaya grows, so does the love for his new found family. In addition, the lure of the lifestyle itself has become addictive.

As the pressure builds, Brandon’s life eventually spins out of control, because he simply has way too much on his plate for someone his age. The one thing he holds onto for dear life is his undying love for Kinaya and his grandmother. Kinaya is so overwhelmed by Brandon’s love and devotion for her, that it causes her to want to do something she never thought she would, which is to get out of the game. The two just want to get married and have a good, God-fearing relationship for the rest of their lives.

Now, the Bonnie-and-Clyde-like duo have a plan: to only do deals with high pay offs, so that they can be set for life on their way out, as well as set the family in a better position as Kinaya leaves her throne. But with high pay comes high stakes. Their road to the altar becomes one of even more violence, betrayal, and a whole lot of quick growing up for young Brandon. Brandon’s last feat to prove himself worthy of marrying Kinaya is to keep her and himself alive long enough to do it when the two complete this task.

The only question is: Can they be satisfied leaving behind such an addictive, luxurious, fast-paced lifestyle?


Story Teaser>
How I feel the film should be cast is; first I want the film to be an all SAG film. Therefore, I would like to pitch A class actors an actress for the leading roles of Kinaya and Brandon that I think fits their characters. The idea actress that I see for Kinaya is, African American, beautiful, petite, 4’11 to 5’2 in height, very bossy, street an book smart, sophisticated and short temped. For Brandon, a young African American Teen, that can sing like an angel, Light skin, about 5’9-10 in height, medium build, innocent that can quickly change into a beast, with zero tolerance of BS.
After establishing The (A) class actors and actress, I would then hold auditions for all other roles for SAG members only, in a private location in Los Angeles CA,
With breaking down this film in micro-details, the expected budget is $27 million. This entails: insurance, paying all actors, all locations, props, wardrobe, make up, music, camera/crew/edit, photographer, craft/ catering service, trailers, and rap gathering for all talent and there families.
I strongly feel that this film will be marketed as a rated R suspenseful/action motion picture making it to Box office.
This film Da’LER$, resembles to BOYZ n THE HOOD, but on a more sophisticated and boss type level. Boyz n the hood was a west coast film that was produced in 1990 and made box office and did really good. Da’LER$ is based off the new west coast, something ideally to American Gangsta, which this film was imagined to be how Mafia’s are ran on the east coast. Da’LERS$ rep’s the New west coast street hustling in a more organized a sophisticated way, ran by a woman, (never seen in movies) always a male runs the Mafia. It’s time for the west coast to have another film.

  • 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.

  • 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!

    Emily
  • 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.
