I want to make my film "Murder at Monogram" because I have always loved old movies. I have written three books and three short stories about a private detective Buck Ames who was a stuntman before a bad horse stunt in a western put him out of the movie business.

I have adapted one of my stories into a filamable script and hope to be able to film it soon.

I believe people would like to see a behind the scenes movie about Hollywood. My script has action, mystery and a little romance.

I picked Monogram because it was a small studio and I believe it can be recreated cheaper than a larger studio.

There will be a lot of green screen shots to keep down the cost of building large costly sets. We also have a movie studio in Tucson that has a western town that can be Monogram's backlot.

My biggest challenge (after funding) will be finding actors to recreate actors working at Monogram in 1948.

Because I own the copyrighted story and have written the screenplay, a big cost factor has been reduced.

I an interested in finding investors to help me make this film. I believe it can be made in such a way as to make a good return on profits.
