Step-#7b): FOUR MAJOR-FILMS PER-YEAR (High-Caliber Casts, 500+ Theaters)

By "Major Films" we mean that the company plans to release FOUR (4) features per year that have high-profile casts and which deserve (and get) broad theatrical distribution (500 or more locations).

To avoid getting into a bidding war for the acquisition of rights, it is believed these major films will need to be PRODUCED by (or with the assistance of), HHSE in the Studio capacity. These titles have been structured to cover HHSE overhead and operating costs... as well as to generate lucrative distribution fees and theatrical marketing service income. Management believe that the revenue potential of each film is in the multiple-millions. In addition to S-1 funding, other "packaged"financing will be utilized.

P&A FUNDS SECURED AGAINST VIDEO / V.O.D. - HHSE has been working with a proven P&A funder for a structure which provides substantial (multi-million dollar) traunches of theatrical release support for qualifying titles under a major studio Video / V.O.D. assignment. HHSE will enjoy the benefits (and upfront fees) from the marketing of titles under this P&A structure - as well as earned sales fees from theatrical settlements. Furthermore, the assignment of video rights to the major studio partner relieves HHSE of the need for substantial video staff and manufacturing funds.

CO-PRODUCTION PARTNERS, INTERNATIONAL PRE-SALES, INCENTIVES AND "GAP" - With respect to the facilitation of a major feature film - such as "MELTDOWN" - the assembly of financing for this $10-mm production in many ways is easier than raising $500,000 for a small indie production. Why? Well, first of all, having three major stars in "MELTDOWN" provides pre-sale interest for the receipt of bankable licensing agreements. Next, the higher stature also encourages greater support from State Incentive programs, and finally the existence of significant pre-sales can be leveraged to obtain what is known as "Gap" financing in the entertainment industry (e.g., a bank loan for "the gap still needed" - secured against the unsold territories). We also may bring in "co-production partners" for a portion of financing or in-kind services, as a variation on the pre-sale model.

For Major feature films structured in this manner - in which HHSE has essentially "packaged" the financing elements and performed the Executive Producer or Studio function - there will be significant fees paid to HHSE upfront... as well as certain assignable allocated overhead expenses. Additionally, after completion of the production, HHSE will launch the films to theatres under the P&A structure described above - also generating operating overhead through marketing fees, booking services and sales settlements.

"MELTDOWN" is an example and may be one of the first major films for HHSE.
