"Bringing in Feature Film Industry to Tampa Bay, starting right here in St Petersburg: With Producer: Ben Daniele"

About this event

Join us for an open-forum style Q and A with producer Ben Daniele to discuss the poised industry of feature filmmaking, ready to engage in our home town and surrounding areas. We'll discuss:

  • The number of jobs and businesses created by bringing a regular stream of films to the area.
  • The increase in tourism, interest, and allure that movie making brings locally.
  • How one business was literally saved by our movie with Lionsgate.
  • What does it looks like from a financial perspective? How much do these movies cost, and how do we get investors to become executive producers?
  • What is the financial return, and guarantee on distribution and output for these films? What's the ROI look like per movie (Or per slate of movies)?
  • How can you get involved?
