Over the past decade, we have been involved in numerous production, finance, and distribution deals for our various projects. After a few wonderful, in-depth, and substantive discussions with Ray Ellingsen, we made the great decision to sign with MPMG. Through these discussions, we found a proven structure that leads to a tremendously clear path to getting our projects made. It has been an absolute delight to work with MPMG. Ray and I speak very regularly, and he always makes himself available for me even though he is extremely busy. MPMG's relationships with forward-thinking, pioneers in the industry who have come on board our films have made this process even more enjoyable. To anyone hesitating on working with MPMG, I would say that you should 100% sign on with them as they have the highest endorsement that I can give. It will be one of the best decisions that you make for your career and company.
Having worked with Ray developing and producing a feature film (Faded Memories), I can honestly say that he and his team have what it takes to bring a project together. In an industry where the words “on time, on budget” are rarely a reality, Ray’s knowledge, experience, and dedication to his work give those words meaning again. I would not hesitate to recommend Ray’s group (MPMG) to anyone seeking a reliable, hard-working [company] to develop and produce their next feature film.
I have been in the film business for nearly a decade now, and have had little success getting my own projects off the ground. Within days of contacting MPMG we were off to the races. Now we have a full feature in development and have already greatly surpassed my previous barriers with a budget that's nearly double my best case scenario. MPMG has exceeded my expectations and I am really looking forward to working with on future endeavors.
I took my time signing with MPMG because I wanted to be sure I was in good hands and that the information, expertise and access I needed MPMG could provide. As I go through the development process I've found everything to be as advertised. MPMG means what it says and delivers on its promises.
Before signing with MPMG, as a filmmaker, I had spent time and money trying to package and sell my film with little success. Since I teamed with MPMG, working with them has moved my project to a possible national/international release. The amazing commitment to the film by all the staff has given me a clear path to not only funding and producing my film but also leveraging their contacts to increase the chance for real box office success. I hope to partner with MPMG on all my future projects and I would greatly encourage filmmakers and anyone serious about the film business to give them a call.
To all of the independent filmmakers who are tired of suffering the slings and arrows of outrageous development misfortune: You will find only professionalism and transparency at MPMG. It will take some getting used to; however, I can assure you that the complete lack of skullduggery is quite agreeable...dare I call it preferable, to the bloody battle. Literary silliness aside, many independent writer/producer/directors simply lack the relationships and resources to facilitate an affordable and successful development process; one that terminates with analytics, financing, distribution and marketing, all in-place prior to launching pre-production. Even qualified indie producers likely couldn't compete with MPMG's established rates with their many vendors and service providers, especially on a single-project basis. If you seek a glitch-free, professionally managed, soup-to-nuts development deal, get in touch with the fine folks at MPMG and get your film made...heck, why not do what I did and get TWO into development?!
