Synopsis – Cold Crazy:
What these films share is a compelling plot, strong characters, a score that drives
the tension, and a story that keeps the audience up at night. Cold Crazy has
these traits. Cold Crazy brings strong elements of the demented family dynamics of 'Psycho' to the present-era shifting its focus from a son to a daughter. This give us two very strong female characters helming this nail-biter. The story expertly blurs the line between victim and perpetrator. Jocelyn Peters, is a middle-aged woman who comes from a very violent and conflicted world. Her world has taught her to faithfully honor her mother, an austere and intimidating woman. In her best friend, Maria Elders, Jocelyn sees the exact opposite of her upbringing. Instead of violence and instability, she sees a life of opportunity and love. In her own mind, Jocelyn Peters knows these things belong to her, no matter what the cost or who she hurts.
All Jocelyn has to do is complete the obligations her demented but fading Mother has secretly beset on her through the years, no matter how tedious, how mundane, or how murderous they are. Jocelyn has helped and protected herself and her elderly mother from the evils of this daily world all along...at least that's what she thought...
Cold Crazy stars Krista Allen, Jamie Bernadette, Mike C. Manning, and is directed by award winning Director, Eric Weber. Cold Crazy is sure to keep audiences on the edge of their seats.

Why invest in film?
The following points are from two investment journal articles written about the risk and
reward of investing in a movie.
• A movie is the best investment one can make for the up-side potential vs. the risk.
• There 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
• With new markets, such as China (1.2 billion new potential moviegoers) and India (900 million new potential English-speaking moviegoers), investor would be imprudent not to
take a serious look at the potential rewards of movie investments at this time.
• There is nothing more rewarding than investing in a motion picture that you truly believe in and then seeing it come to completion. And, investing in the motion picture
industry, you can potentially earn a huge return on your investment.
Budget and ROI:
(Budget breakdowns are available upon request.)
While returns vary widely in the film business, an example of ROI would be the returns from the low budget It Follows produced in Michigan follows. At a
production revenue of $20.6 Million, a $25K investment would yield an ROI of $2.05 Million. While this is unlikely, it is possible...and that is the beauty of film
investment. Our production budget has been set initially at $100,000. The detailed budget is attached. Our second level budget of $150,000 would allow us to secure
additional Hollywood talent to further ensure the film’s financial success. Michigan currently supports no tax credits. Investors would immediately receive their investment back with the first $100,000 in revenue. Revenue after that point would be distributed as follows:
$25K investor ROI is 10% of all revenues after the first $100,000 investment is repaid.
$10K investor ROI is 4% of all revenues after the first $100,000 investment is repaid.
$5K investor ROI is 2% of all revenues after the first $100,000 investment is repaid.
While Cold Crazy does not have an MG or sales agreement, we have relationships with Vision, Freestyle, Green Apple, Shoreline, VMI, and Gravitas Ventures.
