They're audacious risk takers, defiant, zealous, some are fearless, most are tough and they all have one thing in common.................... they are peacemakers. The Wounded Dove will be a 5 X 1 hour documentary series chronicling the lives of the world?s great peacemakers from the early nineteen hundreds to the present time. Most peacemakers were a pain in the ass to the establishment and some played by the rules in their quest to put an end to conflicts or to prevent them. Many of our peacemakers are ordinary citizens who assumed heroic stature and directly influenced the flow of historic events even when they appeared to be overwhelmingly unalterable.
There have been 72 formal treaties, 20 pacts, numerous agreements, alliances, conferences and cease-fires over the past one hundred years. Without peacemakers these achievements would not have been possible.
Structure Narrated by a Hollywood/TV superstar each episode begins with original theme music composed by international music star Gino Vannelli played over a montage of film footage showing the social/cultural trends and pivotal events of the era, quickly placing the viewer in the context of the times. The tone is factual and the material is presented in a journalistic, anecdotal, entertaining style. There will be no talking heads in this fast paced series. The peacemakers will tell their own stories via archive footage, recreations, sound bites, diary excerpts and illustrations. Each episode features up to fifteen peacemaker reportages. The stories are told under themes rather than chronologically.
Episode 1 The Whistle Blowers Episode 2 Subversive Peacemakers Episode 3 Gunboat Diplomats Episode 4 Dying For Peace Episode 5 Young Blood
A brief introduction to the stories stresses the importance of examining conflicts from the point of view of "peace endeavors" rather than listing the chain of events that inexorably plunged people into war. Each war, revolution or instance of internal strife will begin with a graphic presentation of the dynamics of the conflict. This orientation quickly identifies the antagonists and issues. We then introduce our peacemaker and follow this individual as he or she struggles to stop the violence.
The Wounded Dove looks not at those who waged war, but at those who tried to revive and nurture the phoenix of peace.
Thus far one million two has been spent on the project. The series is mostly archive driven but there will be some re-creations. The scripts are written (except for the last episode) and some footage has been purchased. We are ready to start editing.

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.
