Problem -
A lack of Film production even though Colorado has a huge film community, wealthy investors, two universities with film schools and some of the biggest film festivals in the country.
Our Solution -
To start a production company in Colorado that makes small budget independent feature films with Colorado crew and locations. Our movie will cost at most $500,000 and be crewed with the majority of people who pay income tax in Colorado.

We will then sell our movie to a distribution company that will give notoriety and acclaim to our production company and show other people how easy it is to make a hit in Colorado.
Current Solutions -
The state has set up a 20% tax incentive for media that uses a majority of crew who pay income tax in Colorado. They have allotted 5 million in tax incentives with a 100,000 dollar minimum cost per project.

Foreign Market Distributors:
Clara graduated from the Florida State University Film School where she learned extensively on multiple aspects of film making. She stayed in school to seek another degree in Art History to expand on her knowledge and love of art.
Her passion for film and art has lead her down the path of Production Design where she strives to use her creativity and artistic skills to bring director's visions to life.
Melisse's love for cinematography was born when she was given her mom's Nikon FM2 circa 1982 and she began shooting 35 mm black and white photography. Through film school, Melisse was introduced to the digital format of the RED Epic and loved it.
Melisse brings an innovative perspective to the Colorado Film Collective that will bring audiences full force into the stories that we tell.
Arianna's uncanny ability to nag about things that won't be relevant until 3 months from now could be considered planning ahead and every group needs a planning genius. When she's not worrying about the future she's lost in the black hole that is the post production hall and deciding how many pick up days we'll need.
Brittney plans to use her talents in art, people skills, and production design to work her way into a position as director, production designer, and writer for original films in the future. Films that have had a lasting impact on her life as an aspiring filmmaker include Amelie, Exit Through the Gift Shop, SLC Punk!, I’m a Cyborg But that’s OK, and Gummo. Dance and music are also great inspirations in her work, musicians such as Cocorosie, Purity Ring, A Tribe Called Red, Black Flag, Suicidal Tendencies, Beats Antique and many other artists in the punk, grunge, and tribal fusion and dub scenes influence her stlye as an up and coming filmmaker.
Colorado Springs Independent Film Collective
1080 Studios
Cero Productions
Citizen Pictures
AEC Studios
As a collective we differ from these companies with the advantages of being independent, write and produce our own features. We are also more artistically inclined, with training from Florida, and unique perspectives as Millenials.
Sam' s ultimate goal is, and always has been to make interesting movies in the most interesting place in the world. He (at first) begrudgingly left Colorado to attend the Film Program at Florida State University. He's glad he did though, as it gave him a wealth of experience to add to his passion for filmmaking. He has his projects he wants to write and direct, but he's incredibly excited to work with such talented women on such a unique idea. He's good with people, he loves to work, and he absolutely loves the place.Above all, He can't wait to get shooting this movie.
