Lawyer up!

We've begun the necessary step of creating a financial document - aka the 'offering' - in the form of a Private Placement Memorandum (PPM). We should be "all in" be the end of the week. Fortunately our lawyer is working with us allowing us to make several payments instead of all the fees upfront. We are very confident in his skills and look forward to having the PPM ready for distribution in mid-January 2012. Out total budget is $700,000.

Once the PPM completed we'll be knocking on doors of investors who have expressed their support and, of course, we'll be open to additional investors.

When all the ducks line up we'll be ready for production of MEGABALLS in late Spring.

Florida again...

We just returned from another trip to South Florida. It was great to see some old friends and make some new ones....while lining up new investors.

The highlight was visiting the Dezer Collection - 220,000 square feet with over 920 collectible vehicles, many from the movies.  The Collection is preparing for re-opening after expanding its space. The new space will include a section devoted to James Bond, and a large event space. We look forward to visiting again when it's in full swing - soon.

We're excited to announce that Ellen Jacoby has agreed to cast MEGABALLS. It's always great to see Ellen, and this time was no different - where we discussed ideas for casting the main roles. She'll review the roles we've pre-cast and we'll then talk about any ideas she may have, if needed. Ellen was yet given another award in recognition for her 25 years of casting. Some of Ellen's casting credits include BUR NOTICE and CHARLIE'S ANGELS (redux).  Ellen will also sponsor Oroloro's membership into the Florida Film Production Coalition. If you haven't been following, two of our films - LOVE OF A LIFETIME and HOT PROPERTIES - will shoot in South Florida. We were originally introduced to Ellen by the then-Broward Film Commissioner, Elizabeth Wentworth. Both were enthralled by our screenplays. Elizabeth has since gone on her own, and is part of our team as an associate producer.
