Anything is possible,"East of Java" In November 1991 and Jack Irvine, a traveling artist from Sausalito, California receives a check for $1,000.00 and a plane ticket to Jakarta, from his old Australian friend Andy. Taking the bait he arrives in Jakarta where he finds himself involved in a plot to deliver weapons to the freedom fighters in East Timor. With the CIA and the Indonesian secret police hot on his tail and more beautiful than he can handle, he finds it more difficult than he thought it would be to get out of the country alive.

East Timor
by: Virginia

Is your project about East Timor? Our project is written by the author of the novel East of Java. by Scott Amour. copyright 2005 The old film Krakatoa East of Java has nothing to do with the East Timor issue and was made in the 1960's about a volcano. However, I did have some interest for our script from two production groups in the Philippines. So now you have caught my interest. Who is your screenwriter?

East Of Java
by: Karl

I do not know whow this question is directed at but I will give you my answer here.

where are you filming?
by: Anonymous

Where are you located so I can have my attorney contact you? It would be better to getb this settled before you start production. As this is a published novel, I sure that Scott Amour will have his attorney get in touch.

My movie, Definitely not an adaption from the marvelous book - East of Java - will be shot partly in the Philippines and also South America. Although the story line is similiar to your project it is a different story altogether.

If I could give some friendly advice, just get an old version of the original screenplay and get permission to do it again. Just jack it up a bit to make it fit our times now. Some remakes of old movies have turned out even better than the originals. East of Java was a great movie and can do with a remake.

Remember, infringing copyright is a thing best stayed away from. It costs money.

Good luck with your project.

I have a production in development right now with the same plot line. We are filming in may. And, the title - East of Java - has been used before. I am not sure if 1950's or 60's.

  • 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!

    James, Producer, Writer, Director
  • 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!

    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.
