This is a recession proof investment.
Are you interested in getting in on something that actually does BETTER during a recession?
Here is an investment with open ended profit potential. This type of investment may at first seem
risky, but it isn't really that risky. And it can be fun for you too! But can it really be recession or
depression proof? In a moment, I will let you in on the surprise.
Warren Buffet states frequently that he only invests in companies where he likes and trusts the
management. Well, this project has honest and accomplished management. (I have had people tell me
that I am "too honest"..... I let them have their opinion.) And I am investing my own money in this
project. I am seeking investors with 10K up. Below are bits from three articles which support the
recession proof, depression proof concept. You can also watch an online video which lets you see
what the actual product is.
Here are the facts:
The economic downturn is squeezing consumer spending, but there's one corner of the
consumer pocketbook that'll emerge unscathed from the "R" word. Movie going is pretty
much recession proof: Box office receipts have grown over six of the last seven recessions.
(according to Lehman Brothers analyst Eric Handler).
It's fairly simple. When the economy is suffering, people want to escape their troubles, and
going to the movies is a fairly affordable luxury. With the average movie ticket price at eight
dollars, a trip to an air-conditioned theater is a great activity when you're not spending
money on road trips. And movies are probably the cheapest out-of-home entertainment, with
concerts and sporting events being pricier than ever.

When the economy falls, the demand for escapist entertainment rises. History has proven
this over and over again. During "The Great Depression" (1929 - 1939) 25% of American
families had no income and 40% of factory workers were unemployed. In 1930 there were
200,000 evictions in New York City alone.
Despite this, movie box office receipts during the 1930s soared 22%. In many cases people
elected to see a movie, rather than eat. That's how desperately people needed to escape
(mentally) from the weight of their problems.

There simply is no business with manufacturing capital entry requirements as low as motion
pictures where the potential return can be as unlimited over the short, medium and long
Hide the Gold
If you were hiking alone in the middle of nowhere and you found nuggets of gold in a river -
too many to carry home in one trip - what would you do? Would you go into town telling
everyone that you found gold and you need help carrying it? No, you would probably be a
little reserved, perhaps even nepotistic and tell only your family and closest friends.
This, in part, is not unlike the movie industry.
For those in the know-how and those in the loop (spelled "Hollywood Insiders" or "The
Club" or the "Control Group"), movies are excellent investments - and the same would just
as rather have that fact obscured (as fully explicated in a book called FATAL
SUBTRACTION by attorney Pierce O'Donnell and Dennis McDougal). Ironically, that little
phrase: "THESE SECURITIES INVOLVE A HIGH DEGREE OF RISK" is very
convenient to The Club, even if it IS required under security laws. Human Beings have been
known to hide the gold, or make it unsafe to enter the "forbidden" zone.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - True to form and in keeping with past recessions, Americans are
flocking to the movies, the chief executive of the largest U.S. theater chain said on
"We're approximately two-thirds of the way through the quarter, and we are having a very
good fourth quarter this year compared to last year as an industry," Regal Entertainment
Group's CEO Mike Campbell told Reuters.
Movie theaters are seeing double-digit growth in box office revenue and high single-digit
growth in attendance so far this quarter.
He said the movie industry has done well during all the recessions in the past 50 years.
"It is still the most affordable out of home entertainment option," he said.
Regal owns 549 theaters operating 6,754 screens.

TORONTO - A surge of Canadians heading to movie theatres during the recession has helped cinema chain
operator Cineplex Galaxy Income Fund (TSX:CGX.UN) turn a fourth-quarter profit and record its best year
Total revenues in the quarter rose to $211.4 million from a year-earlier $182.6 million.
Concession revenues - from the sale of popcorn, drinks and snacks, a significant profit driver for exhibitors -
increased 21.3 per cent to $61.4 million. The average concession revenue per patron rose to $4.03 from $3.87.
"You'd assume that people would be spending less, but they're not," said Andy Nasr, an analyst at the Raymond
Cinema chains also tend to thrive in a bad economy because they're considered a relatively cheap form of
entertainment, even with the massive growth in sales of DVD players, flat-screen TVs and DVD movies in
Cineplex is the largest motion picture exhibitor in Canada, with ownership interests in 130 theatres with 1,331
screens from British Columbia to Quebec. The company has a workforce of more than 8,000 people and
operates through such brands as Cineplex Odeon, Galaxy, Famous Players, Colossus, Coliseum, SilverCity,
Cinema City and Scotiabank Theatres.
New film distribution sources open the doors wide for the indie producer; The so-called
"Netflix effect" www.netflix.com/ is giving customers access to an infinite library of
movies by mail--making it even easier to land a blockbuster paycheck from a low budget
film. A downloadable film industry is taking flight, with Wal-Mart www.walmart.com/ ,
Apple www.apple.com/ and Amazon www.amazon.com/ getting into the game.
New forms of online distribution, such as online video streaming are becoming extremely
popular. The www.MovieMatrixs.com is leading what it calls the online revolution in the
film industry by creating an online distribution hub for high quality independent movies
A talented producer and director can now make a focus-grouped film for peanuts and
with just a little luck retire in Malibu.

Sam and Leah is a recession proof investment. American investors welcome. My first
investor is in California.
This demo recently sold for
broadcast on TV!
It is only two scenes joined
together, and the distributor
and broadcaster both knew
that people would like it.
I have sold 7 short films for
broadcast. My movies sell.
This is only a small part of
the movie. Overall, the movie
will be a lot more exciting!
In actual fact I have invested 12K
so far. But I am claiming only
10K to make the math easier, in
other words makng a 2K
donation because I am totally
committed to the success of this
Investors will get QUADRUPLE their money before any deferred amounts are paid to the
cast, crew, or myself.
Investors get paid for 15 years!
There are hundreds of English language networks and super channels in the world. Being
broadcast on only two per year for 5 years can equal $1,000,000. In 15 years that's
$3,000,000. Sam and Leah is a captivating story, and I think it will do 10 times as well.
($30,000,000). It IS possible. Earning back at least $200,000 or $300,000 should be a
complete no brainer. Even garbage movies get shown on TV. Looking at it this way, I
consider this low risk.
