Normally I would just paste this, but for anyone looking on this blog for #opDeathEaters information, I am putting it here too.
A few days ago I received a message asking me to follow an account @JustDriveMovie on Twitter, which I did. I then received dm’s from them as follows. As far as I am concerned any communication I received from them was meant for anyone involved in Anonymous or OpDeathEaters since that is the only reason they were contacting me. It is completely in the interest of all people they wish to represent to see how they are to be represented. Since this company said “Confidence that the network will have our backs is essential.” early feedback is of course an advantage for them as well. This is my sole communication with these people.
Them: Thank you. I lk forward to communicating w/you and proving to you that I am who and what I say I am. Values and Principles are my soul.
A man is only willing to bend over backwards so many times before he realizes he wasn’t performing for a potential ally. Its time to take me Seriously.
Me: I said I would talk to you today. My schedule is not yours to order and threats don’t go over well. Explain what you want.
Them: Actually we said we would talk THURSDAY, don’t expect to “control” your schedule, just do as each other says, especially when building trust
Me: This is a response. Still waiting for you to explain what you want.
Them: Fyi Respect goes both ways. I believe what i OFFER has been explained to you by several people. I was told you were the person to have a
Me: I have had one mutual acquaintance ask me to follow you. I know nothing else about you. Serious conversations involve information.
Them: I find that hard to believe considering the public tweets we’ve both been tagged with and ___ told me he sent you my email and talked to you
I apologize for the delay. While preparing to write this I found myself
quite inspired with strong ideas about how to integrate #OpDeathEaters
in to a story that was always meant to serve this type of cause. Before
I get into all the surrounding aspects of our ‘Social Filmmaking’
plan, how I see cohesion in agendas and the concerns I have going in,
let me start with the story. I attached the current version of the
The basic storyline is a disenfranchised superstar (think Russell Brand
and his Trews attitude meets George Clooney’s level of influence)
figures out on the way to an appearance that the event has been hijacked
by a nefarious political force specifically to give the public
appearance that our superstar ‘Tony DeFranco’ endorses their agenda.
The entire film takes place in a limousine on the way to the event and
ends in a high speed chase that culminates with Tony’s publicist
offering him an ultimate that includes playing ball and exiting the limo
alive, or dying in a horrible crash in a limo full of drugs and dead
hookers. As the story unfolds the audience discovers that Tony is the
primary financier of ‘Anonymous Operations’ and he has been
orchestrating an underground war against the global elite right under
their nose from the heart of Hollywood.
I always intended for Tony’s motivations to be more focused and
meaningful, so framing his motivations around a major Anonymous
Operation like #OpDeathEaters is something I fully support as the writer
and an activist.
I immediately wrote up an outline for changes to the script that could
dramatically involve key details such as already convicted names, direct
references and a central conflict/plot that revolve around the
Operation. In a general sense it could look like this, Tony’s
Hollywood existence gave him first hand access to this cabal of
pedophilia. It was he who originally ordered #OpDeathEaters. He who has
been financing and supplying insider information to the operation. The
nefarious politician who hijacks his event for their presidential bid,
is one of the key ring leaders, the most untouchable, for the cabal and
Tony’s antithesis. After Tony picks up a sexy stranger on the way to
the event and debates the moral dilemma of going or not going to the
event, she convinces him that “you can only remain anonymous for so
long, before you must lead by example.” He decides that tonight will
be “the night the mask comes off”. When his traitorous, soulless
publicist gets wind of his intent, she blackmails the young driver to
take Tony on a high speed police chase where she forces the devils
ultimatum on him. In the end he chooses to be a martyr for the cause. It
leaks out that he drew a triangle into the coke dust before he died and
his death becomes a massive conspiracy theory, portrayed in the
mainstream media as the nefarious politicians example/platform for why
“everyone will be held accountable”. (This is just a sweeping
generalization, but with hard specifics from your side I can definitely
weave hard facts and truths into the story without skipping a beat and
in fact making the story much deeper and more powerful.)
When it comes to production, I have a small, but elite team of studio
caliber professionals who are all personal friends. We designed this as
a contained thriller that we could use to show off our talents as a team
and claim our career independence from the system. (For exactly these
kinds of creative freedoms) The film was designed to be shot in just 15
days on a single sound stage. We had intended on shooting it at the
Youtube studios, but we must partner with a channel that has over 100k
subscribers already. Any chance you’re connected to the anonymous
youtube channel? Could be a platform to directly release the film on as
well. Some of the linked documents below discuss the business/technical
aspects of the film in greater detail. Rest assured we expect the
quality of this film to be a stunning leap in what indie filmmaking is
capable of. It will have the production quality and heart to win
At the same time all of this is happening, we just started shooting
initial interviews, and as part of the secondary surrounding content, we
are shooting a documentary following our efforts to make this movie.
That documentary could easily be expanded to be a documentary about the
use of fiction as a vehicle for a delivering a horrifying truth to the
population in an un-ignorable way. IE the Hannibal Burris/Bill Cosby
moment of reckoning on a massive scale. In addition, by documenting
everything and sharing most of it in real time it offers a built in
layer of protection from anyone who would mean us harm. Any
harm/harrassment to us would only reinforce the truth of what they are,
and make this whole story an un-ignorable headline around the world.
Our surrounding plan for the film is very detailed and extensive. It
provides countless live and social platforms that combined with the
right network could ensure that #OpDeathEaters is a constant trending
topic. The linked documents explain our plans in more detail, but the
general plan is this… Through live events, viral, reality and
transmedia storytelling we intend to document and share the entire
process of making our movie as we make it. All of this secondary content
will be part of our viral marketing campaign for the film and will be
used to hold ourselves accountable to the crowd. Because we will be
asking the community to support this film, we have made a commitment to
use the film as a platform to give back to the community. There is no
limitation on how we do this, but this is what we have planned so far…
LAUNCH – In the Spring of 2015 we intend to host a celebrity charity
poker tournament for Big Brother Big Sister. This event will be
co-hosted with Aces & Angels the charity poker organization to the
stars. This event will be a high profile live streamed event on Youtube
– The Anonymous Youtube Channel perhaps? This event will serve as the
back drop for an interactive web-a-thon promoting the start of our
national crowd fund campaign. The web-a-thon will feature a level of
audience guest interaction never before experienced with rewards to
match. 50% of the money raised will go to BBBS and 50% will go to us to
cover the costs of the event. As part of our agreement with Aces and
Angels the event projects no less than $100,000 raised with an
expectation of $250,000.
Another part of our charitable commitments will be a 10% pledge of every
crowd fund donation to a national charity/cause (TBD) when the campaign
ends. The 90% that goes to fund the project will be promised as a
donation by the film once it is released.
PRODUCTION – In order to restore the trust and value back into crowd
funding the key to our entire business model is shooting the film while
the campaign is actually happening. This way through our documenting and
sharing, the audience can watch the film come together, meet the people
involved, watch the hard work and passion before they even consider
donating to the project. During production there would be a live
streamed nightly wrap up show from set where a host interviews members
of the production, this would be another great nightly platform to
remind people why we are doing this.
DISTRIBUTION – While we have traditional distribution contacts, those
would only be necessary for foreign sales. For domestic everything would
be interactive and cause oriented. With our model we have the freedom to
release the film in all traditional formats as well as new media formats
such as any youtube channel, theater or alternative platform we choose.
For us this means making sure the film releases everywhere at the same
We have arranged a theatrical release that goes outside the studio
system and is sustained only as long as the demand, without any upfront
costs. The CEO of Tugg.com  has promised us a minimum of 200 theater
screenings for our release night. Tickets for these screenings will be
available from the first day the movie goes into production. Through
Tugg additional local screenings can be easily requested by fans or
event promoters and include affiliate fees for events that sell out.
On top of that, with a platform called distrify.com we can offer a
youtube like video that serves as a trailer/store/vod platform that can
be updated from the back end. That means any online press the cause or
film gets along the way can embed a youtube like video player in their
article that offers fresh content, promos, videos, products and the
movie once it is released. It also has a built in affiliates commission.
If you and/or us need to issue an important call to arms video, it would
instantly populate in any past article, press, blog or website that
shared or embedded the player. This has a built in 15% affiliate
commission for anyone who shares or embeds the player/store so get
creates a tangible reason for positive coverage.
THE CHERRY – The final piece of our social filmmaking model includes a
30 day bus tour leading up to the release of the movie. The tour would
serve as a rolling reality show and include 20 free charity screenings
around the country, the filmmakers would host Q&A’s after each show
talking about the film and presumably the Operation and any new
operation. We could be a face and voice for the message that people can
interact and feel comfortable with, while still deferring to the
collective. The nuts and bolts of this plan are all designed to turn the
movies release night (which will be scheduled and promoted before the
launch event) into the pop culture event of the year. This is all before
we add the power of Anonymous into the equation.
Because much of this model centers around personal relationships, we can
produce, market and distribute the film for less than $350,000. But, the
beauty of the business model is that with a large enough social network
(This is where Anonymous comes in) the model is designed to be self
sufficient after the initial costs of the charity event have been
acquired. Once we come up with $30,000 to cover the event deposits, we
have a proven sponsorship coordinator, the BBBS donor list and Aces and
Angels ready to maximize the event revenue.
The crowd fund campaign, web-a-thon, presales, secondary content, tour
sponsorships, online ad revenue (from all viral traffic) will cover the
costs of production and the tour. Our detailed financial projections
show us reaching profitability before we wrap production on the film.
Thanks to our financial sponsorship through ‘From The Heart
Productions’ any donation to the project is eligible for a tax
Every aspect of this plan is designed to be a tight ascending line of
momentum that builds off each stage before it. This means no long turn
around, we create a wave and ride it to the release night.
STARTING POINT – The moment we can secure 30k (seed money) to pay the
deposit on Aces & Angels, the venue and essential labor.
LAUNCH EVENT – Schedule 90 days after seed money. This is lead up, viral
marketing, event promotions.
PRODUCTION/CROWDFUND CAMPAIGN – 15 days during the 45 day campaign.
(Endless amount of secondary content produced)
POST PRODUCTION/TOUR PROMOTIONS – 90 days – The film will be shot in
chronological order to allow editing and reshoots to happen as we go.
CROSS COUNTRY TOUR – 30 days
WORLDWIDE RELEASE – 240 Days. (Unheard of by traditional industry
MARKETING ANGLES, VIRAL CONTENT, COHESIVE AGENDA
– The title of our charity event is ‘All In For Kids’ so adding a
deeper, more important subtext/purpose to that title works perfectly.
– As long as we do not feel like we are painting a bullseye on our chest
and then being escorted out into a field, we are happy to use our
platform, business model, film and content as a vehicle for the greater
good. The truth is the sole reason I ever saught to exploit my ability
to entertain was to accumulate the relationships and the resources to
fight these wars, so if I have the opportunity to skip the long game and
get back the ten years of my life I wasted with no direction, I am so
down for the cause.
Together we could easily turn this into a 9 month straight barrage of
attention/press/media/discussions on #OpDeathEaters culminating in crowd
sourced theatrical release that could double as a public demonstration
of the full power of Anonymous. Through pop culture we can create a
moment that insists that anyone in power who is not with them, turn on
– I know for a fact the union of our resources would create an
inevitable media firestorm. We’ve accumulated quite a few press and
industry people who are secret supporters of our social filmmaking model
and laying in wait to join a groundswell. When you combine the
disruption to the traditional industry we already represent, with the
reach of anonymous, it will be like catnip to social journalists
I can already see the spin – band of Hollywood rebels risk industry
banishment working with Anonymous to make a powerful film dedicated to
exposing Hollywood Mogul Monsters. Especially if we go with a marketing
– Implies we made this movie (even changed the script) based on a
supposed real superstars first hand account. We can say that we were
already planning on making a movie about a Hollywood A-Lister who is
secretly a member of Anonymous. From that we connected with a member of
Anonymous who has been in communication with a very high-level member of
the Hollywood food chain for sometime regarding #OpDeathEater. From this
unidentified whistleblowers communications relayed to Gratwick Films, we
rewrote our script to be a “fictional” story based on this secret
A-listers secret confessions.
– Video Collaboration, blurring the lines between fiction and reality
would sell it. If both sides are 100% willing to go to the wall with
this, we can collaborate on a series of videos that imply we have a big
time Hollywood WhistleBlower who gave us first hand accounts of their
secret war with the powerful scum of Hollywood. We can take from the
documents and information your ally has and “leak” details out in
those videos. If done and presented right, the “Tony DeFranco”
character would be a pseudonym for the alleged whistleblower. It could
get the real scumbags shaking in their boots about how close to home
this movie is going to go and if someone really did talk to us. The goal
would be to turn a mantra like “Who Is Tony DeFranco?” into a call
to action with endless layers of subtext in the likes of “Who Is John
Gault?” It would be code for anyone fighting to expose these scum, it
would create speculation about who the REAL Tony DeFranco actually is,
maybe it will inspire a Hollywood elite to personify Tony and step
forward. The advantages are endless.
– 1 is being hung out to dry. For us, once an alignment/commitment like
this is made, we are not publicly anonymous, there is no going back. So
much more than the threat of harm, my greatest concern is taking a giant
social trust fall and not having anonymous people there to blow some
wind under our wings.
– 2 this caliber of alliance will certainly strain some of our
unfortunately necessary business relationships. Such as enticing event
sponsors, celebrity guests, charity partnerships. This could suffocate
the modest financial streams we are counting on to run a professional
crowd fund campaign. Confidence that the network will have our backs is
essential. To be completely honest, we have already sacrificed so much
for the greater good, everything we have and the roof over our tiny
apartment is riding on getting this project off the ground in the next
30 days, so adding a degree of difficulty to securing those precious
initial funds could be a back breaker.
All this being said I’m down for doing whatever is necessary on my end
to make this happen.
