THE FILM: Three old college mates from Tijuana meet every year to chat about life and catch up. They opposite poles, one being a rocker philosopher and the other a conservative and godly person. Their respect for each other and mutual appreciation make this old friendship possible. One of them goes through a sudden crisis that that will send them on a physical road trip as well as one through memory lane. Even though these are friends from very diverse backgrounds and ideologies that normally renege their lot in life for not having access to the American dream since they are so close in Tijuana just a stone throw away, this new situation helps them reflect and be appreciative of the things they do have.

This film highlights the idiosyncrasy of the Tijuana native, or of those brought to this metropolis at an early age. This frontier profile becomes a hybrid between the U.S. and Mexican cultures, fact that is evidenced the way they process information and the"Spanglish" common in the region.

The film is spoken in both Spanish and English, sometimes both simultaneous which makes it a very unique 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.

  • 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.
