Movie Money CONFIDENTIAL will have its world premiere on Saturday, July 13 at 7pm at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Florida Atlantic University in Jupiter. The feature-length documentary is inspired by the best-selling book Filmmakers & Financing by Louise Levison. Writer-director Rick Pamplin, a Levison client, approached her about adapting her book into a film and telling the story of how she created the business plan for The Blair Witch Project (the most profitable independent film ever made) and others such as Salma Hayek’s The Prophet.
The filmmakers conducted over 60 on-camera interviews and shot almost 100 hours of footage with actors (including the legendary Burt Reynolds), several award-winning filmmakers, film investors, attorneys, fundraisers, writers, producers and Levison herself. Pamplin said of the endeavor, “My mission was to be bold, truthful and reveal the facts about one of the best kept secrets in show business - how to raise money for movies, especially low-budget and independent ones.”
Movie Money CONFIDENTIAL is a Think Visual Group Production in association with Pamplin Film Company. Producers are Scott duPont and Maggie Pamplin, executive producer P.J. Marks, co-producer Jon Zietz and associate producer Eddie G. Cabrera. Levison is holding a book-signing at 6pm before the film screening. Following the premiere will be a panel of some of Reynolds’ closest friends and associates who will share memories of one of the biggest movie stars in Hollywood history.
