Nearly eight months after the "outbreak", three of the uninfected stumble upon an unlikely sanctuary, a prison. Inside they find a small group of inmates who have chosen to stay behind while the rest of their fellow convicts escaped in the first harried days of the 'outbreak'.
Now inside the high prison walls, the small band of survivors must decide if they want to take their chances among the living and exceedingly hostile convicts, or with the flesh-hungry dead waiting for them on the outside. "Dead Inside" is a terrifying story where possibly the safest place on Earth is inside a maximum-security prison.
About the Project:
"Dead Inside" is a project designed with an eye on the business of filmmaking. While we love the creative side of what we do, we're quite aware of the fact that film is a business. Therefore, we set forth to create a product that employs a number of elements necessary for success and a reasonable ROI.
While most film investments are considered high-risk, we have lessened that risk considerably because of the following:
1) We own a script product within the enormously popular horror genre. This is a genre which historically sells well domestically and internationally.
2) We're operating within what the film industry typically considers a "micro-budget" which provides better opportunity for a quick return.
3) We have attached known cast members, some of whom have a positive track record for selling well in international markets.
4) Our team has a long history of producing award-winning, profit-generating cable network and independent theatrical films.
5) We have the festival and distribution contacts to expedite sale of the finished product. In fact, we already have requests for screeners of the finished film and even one request for dailies from a large North American distribution company.
We intend to begin production in the late summer of 2011 and currently have the following cast attached:
Ryan Merriman (The Ring 2, Final Destination 3, Pretty Little Liars) Grace Johnston (Beaches, Bloodlines, Witness Insecurity) Brian Krause (Charmed, Sleepwalkers) Gianni Capaldi (The Cross, Hollywood Royale) Jeremy London (Mall Rats, Gods and Generals) Rick Ranavello (The Cave, Weeds, Desperate Housewives) Andrew Rothenberg (The Walking Dead, Stranger Than Fiction, True Blood)
We are also in talks with a few other well-known names to give the project even more viability.

We believe that the cast, combined with the current relevance of this genre is a recipe for great success. In fact, we just had our first mention in the LA press. To see it go here: http://www.lasplash.com/publish/Celebrity_Talk_102/grace-johnston.php
We are currently looking for qualified investors that will work with us to expedite our efforts with the capital raise. We have pitch meetings set over the next several weeks but are looking for more opportunities to connect with the right people.
I have a pdf copy of the business plan and the PPM authored by Wyatt, Tarrant, & Combs which I will forward to you upon request.

Promote YOUR Story, Business, Film on FilmProposals
Do you have some great indie filmmaker tips to share with other aspiring or current filmmakers? Do you want to promote your latest film or service to a huge global network of filmmakers, producers, directors, potential investors and distributors? Here is a great opportunity to first, pay it forward, and then promote your projects, products and services.
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!
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.
