Paper Weapons is the true story of Suad Leija the 22 year old daughter of the founder of the largest Mexican organized Family in the US. They are a terrorist organization. She is now helping the Homeland Security identify members nation wide and in Mexico. Please go to www.paperweapons.net or youtube.com/suadleija to view her media and 5 videos as she describes her life and a counter terrorist operation she did not know she was a part of.
There is interest in developing the story as both a book and a movie. When you see the information you will agree that this needs to retain the Latin theme and culture. This is a powerful true story that examines terrorism, immigration and a very brave young woman. If you have an interest as a writer or producer we would like to hear from you! Please visit www.paperweapons.net to email us or call at 404-474-0945.

THE SECRETS TO DISTRIBUTION: GET YOUR MOVIE DISTRIBUTED NOW!
A 1-DAY SEMINAR
So you've made your movie. Congratulations! Or you're going to make your movie. Excellent! What do you do to ensure the final step of your filmmaking journey, getting distribution? How do you play "the game"? Is there even a game??
The answer is YES. There is a game. A strategy. Whether you're about to start shooting, have finished your final cut, are on the film festival circuit -- or even if you've been turned down by distributors already -- you CAN get distribution. It is not impossible, but there is a strategy that MOST producers & directors do not know or understand.
*Who should attend this seminar**:*
*** Those with a completed movie
*** Those in production or post-production
*** Those who intend to make a movie -- Get a head start on what you need to know
*** Film students -- Learn what you're not taught in film school
Bottom line? This seminar is about getting results and getting the deal, with key resources provided. If you are serious about getting your movie into the marketplace, then you should not miss this day. This is NOT about self-distribution and making DVDs to sell them out of the trunk of your car or on the internet. This is about securing a viable distributor, whether you have a low budget / no budget movie OR a movie with names. Don't spend years spinning your wheels, only to end with your movie collecting dust on your living room shelf.
*AT THE SEMINAR YOU WILL LEARN:*
*** The Theatrical Distribution game: What to do and what not to do with theatrical distributors
(Most filmmakers fail here, even when they have a killer movie)
*** The 8 Basic Movie Distribution Models and how to navigate them
*** Who all the Home Video Distributors are
(Do you know there are over 100 of them? Contact list provided at seminar)
*** Press Kits, PR & Marketing
*** Is your artwork & press kit REALLY up to snuff, or are you sending out inferior materials with your movie causing distributors to say 'No' before even watching it? (Happens all the time)
*** Are Film Festivals worth your time & energy?
(Depends upon your movie)
*** How to effectively use Film Festivals
(It's not just showing up like a rock star and watching your movie)
*** Is the VSDAÂ—now known as the EMAÂ—important to attend?
(Do you know what the EMA is? Your success may depend on this)
*** E & O Insurance: How to get it for thousands of dollars LESS than the going rate (You will need it for U.S. distributors)
*** Plus Q & A
