Josh and Novak are developing the next generation of artificial intelligence surveillance for the U.S. government. Josh, discovers a flaw in the A.I. where it misidentifies crimes. Josh believes humans and A.I. think in the same ways so he conducts a study of convicted criminals to find the source of deviance in the hopes that he can retrain his A.I. Knowing Josh’s system is superior, Novak hires a former C.I.A. jackal to stop or kill Josh.
Jon Schiefer’s first released feature-length movie ALGORITHM was posted on YouTube and seen by 11 million people around the world and recouped its budget. It’s often called “the best hacker movie ever made,” and it changed the genre forever. It’s now on Amazon Prime where it continues to be seen all over the world and generate income.
There’s a lot of innovations with Death Row Gigolo, from the script all the way through distribution.
THE SCRIPT deals with technology and social justice, where they intersect, and what that says about society. And, the cast will be diverse, accurately showing the diversity of real life. Enough famous people will be cast to facilitate equitable distribution deals.
PRODUCTION is about getting the highest production value as efficiently as possible. The innovation here is about pay equity. By paying everyone a flat day-rate dictated by the most demanding union, the cost of production drops and the quality goes up. On top of that, all of the cast and crew will participate in a profit-share, distributing 40 percent of all net profits, proportional to their days worked.
DISTRIBUTION will either be licensing the project to distributors by region and medium, or a more creative model involving booking theaters and slowly scaling out a theatrical run, starting in the U.S. and then going international.
The $10 million budget for Death Row Gigolo will be raised by selling 2,000 shares of DRG, LLC. for $5,000 per share to primarily accredited investors. Approximately two years after all investments are received, the movie should begin distribution. Investors will be first-money-out plus 20 percent, after expenses, and 40 percent of all net profits DRG, LLC. makes after that.
The Finders (people who connect us with investors for the movie) will get 1 percent of whatever money is raised as a result of the connections they facilitate. On top of that, 10 percent of all net profits DRG, LLC. makes, after investors are repaid, from the sale and licensing of the movie will be dispersed among all the Finders, proportional to the investment each Finder facilitates.
