SANTIAGO tells the story of three very different men; Miguel (Dan Lopecci) as the actor who hires a film student, Billy (Wesam Keesh) to document a day in the life of a very dangerous drug-dealer pimp, Santiago (Jesus Guevara). Santiago leads Miguel and Billy through an underworld where drugs, sex and violence are an everyday occurrence. Through this journey we witness men of violence and prostitutes who once came to this country for better things, but now have to survive the only way they can.

Finished my deck on Friday. Got it into a few potential investor’s hands over the weekend, and by Monday had 3 out of the 10 available memberships spoken for at $160K each. The revenue projections and film comparable services by NASH, along with the business plan and pitch deck templates were instrumental in presenting the project in such a way that financially minded potential investors could understand the movie business, the market and how my project could possibly give them a substantial ROI.
Melissa was amazing throughout the entire process. Always there to answer any questions. Couldn’t have done it without you guys. Can’t thank you enough. Best money I’ve ever spent.
