Overview

Shortages Expected in Genre Films for Theatrical Distribution


Luminosity is seeking $20 million of equity to produce moderate budget ($5-20 million) genre films for theatrical distribution –


Very experienced Management Team having produced/distributed 100+ films, many with “A-List” talent under distribution deals with major studios


The ever-improving home entertainment experience and expanding availability of streaming services have materially changed consumption habits


Leading entertainment brands are shifting from theatrically distributed genre films to wide release multiple income stream “tentpole” releases and direct-to-consumer releases via streaming services


Revenue generated by theatrically distributed films dropped dramatically due to Pandemic, but is expected to recover by 2023-4


Third-party capital available to fund production and distribution costs, not otherwise covered by bank loans and tax incentives, has decreased significantly since 2018

 Opportunity

Address the Supply Void in Genre Film Segment

 

Expected shortage in supply of moderate budget  genre films [urban, thriller, action, etc.] as major  studios retreat creating an opportunity in this market segment


Company has existing relationship in domestic and  foreign distribution channels


Foreign revenue now accounts for 65-70% of total revenue for US produced films

LUMINOSITY ENTERTAINMENT

Solution/Plan

Company will produce 5 to 10 moderate budget genre films [ $5M to $20M] for theatrical distribution  annually


Management plans to release its films in the U.S. on 200 to 1,000 screens at a time with proportional  print and advertising (“P&A”) commitments of $1,000,000 to $10,000,000, respectively


The Company intends to license home video and television rights in United States to third party  distributors without transferring the intellectual property rights


The Company intends to license foreign distribution rights through managements’ existing  relationships. Foreign revenue accounts for 65-70% of total revenue for U.S. based producers


Company plans to finance its films by a combination of (1) bank loans secured by pre-sale of foreign  distribution rights, (2) selling tax incentives provided by governments to encourage film production,  and (3) capital raised under this Offering and project specific raises
