Movies are my passion and for many years I've dreamed of having my screen play brought to life. FilmTies.com has made available the resources essential to the success of my movie when no one else was willing to do so
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 3, 2007
FilmTies.com today announced the launch of the world's first online interactive membership based, social networking community that provides funding for film projects. FilmTies.com is a Web site that allows networking and project collaboration for filmmakers, screen writers, directors, producers, crew members, musicians and artists. FilmTies.com finances these projects through revenue from local and national ad sales. The goal of FilmTies.com, by and through the AdFILMTies Patent Pending Film Finance model, is to distribute $100,000,000 in funding for independent film productions over the next three years.
"Movies are my passion and for many years I've dreamed of having my screen play brought to life. FilmTies.com has made available the resources essential to the success of my movie when no one else was willing to do so," stated Ryan Cavalline - 4th Floor Pictures "Besides that, FilmTies.com provided an environment that allowed us to become well acquainted with all individuals involved in our project which assured that everyone had the same passion for this project as I."
After founder John DeTitta witnessed the same trials that most amateur writers encounter, he began researching alternative resources and sought the advice of his peers. After doing so, he realized the potential of providing advertisers with the means to both reach their target audience and sponsor independent films using advertising dollars already figured into budget. In order to do so, he needed a media outlet that would allow for the impressions advertisers sought. FilmTies.com launched with a beta group in October 2005. The beta group provided valuable feedback allowing FilmTies.com creators to build an attractive, user-friendly site, complete with the features most important to their target audience.
FilmTies.com is celebrating its launch with a contest for both high schools and colleges throughout the United States. The contest will provide students with the opportunity to not only raise money for their school but to also build their resumes and gain national recognition. In addition, FilmTies.com is working to provide other means to fund projects so that the number of projects chosen for funding each month can increase. To date, necessary steps are underway to create a film commission in every state throughout the U.S.
"It is our goal to provide a social outlet for those we know have the passion and talent to be successful, but may not have the same means and connections necessary to get their projects off the ground," stated John DeTitta, founder and president of FilmTies.com. "Too many talented individuals do not have the chance to tell their story to the world. Therefore, we have made it our top priority to give everyone with a story to tell the ability to tell it."
FilmTies.com is the world's first membership based, social network interactive film financing community that has combined the creative fruitfulness of independent filmmaking with the financial productiveness of internet advertising. FilmTies.com is part of the AdFILMTies Film Finance Model that empowers screenwriters, musicians, artist, actors, directors, producers, sponsors and the movie watching public.
