    Why are movies so expensive to make?

    According to the Showbiz Labor Guide (the industry standard), our movie will cost approximately half a million dollars to produce.

    Once made, a standard marketing campaign might cost upwards of $90,000 before it’s then released.

    This seemed crazy to us.

    As you read in Blood, Sweat, And Equity, we realized we could drastically cut our production costs to $85,244 by paying actors and crew for their work with ownership instead of in cash. We also realized something else…

    Why pay $90,000 to build an audience when the movie is only going to cost $85,244? Why not build our audience in the very process of making our movie?

    What if we were to show the same advertising teasers a million dollar movie would, but what if each ticket purchase for our movie, actually made the movie you’re about to see?

    Either way, the risk to you is the same.  You have to pay before you can see a movie, but when you buy a ticket to THE THREAT OF SEX, you’ll actually be making a movie!

    Doesn’t that sound much cooler than paying a premium for a movie that’d already be made with or without you?

    Without you, we can’t make this movie, but with you, we can.

    Which is why we’re thrilled to announce that so far, our plan to make a big movie on a tiny budget is on track and ahead of schedule.

    Thanks to audience members like you, we’ve now sold 1,514 $5 tickets with only 15,534 left to go before you’ll have made your first-ever feature film!

    Who will be the next person to buy a ticket to make this movie?

    Who will be ticket number 1,515?

    Who will be ticket number 5,115?

    Who will get the last ticket that begins production?

    Every ticket is uniquely important, because every ticket bought makes a movie that wouldn’t, that couldn’t, exist without you.

    Who knew movie-making could be so smart, simple, and cheap, that anyone can do it?

    All you have to do is buy a ticket!

    Be a mogul.

    Make a movie!
