Part 1 Million dollar secrets of the Bahamas Film Industry






Closely Guarded Secrets of


“Made For Movie” Money

If you are new in the film/entertainment business, your biggest problem will be finding finances for your film. Though there are many options you can take, more than likely you may only be aware of a few. Such as: applying for grants, borrowing money from banks, relatives or friends. These channels very often do not work out for the artist in the long run, but it is a quick way to get into the game.

The best way to finance a film is in an investment consortium, under the guidance of a mentor, who by the way can be very instrumental in helping you to acquire your own money eventually. Oh, did I say the taboo controlling word, "mentor"? Yes, mentor. Mentor in this day and age? Yes, a mentor is someone who activates the humility within you that creates an atmosphere for learning or connecting to a higher level. This person is usually someone you wish to be like and someone secure enough not to worry about the possibility of you succeeding beyond him or her, should fate have it to be. The truth of the matter is, if the relationship is structured properly neither parties would have to be concerned about ending up in an odd or seemingly strained relationship position. Your success will automatically lead to further success for your mentor as it is the law of nature. Extremely successful people working in the Bahamas Film Industry all understand this concept and benefit greatly from it.
For more on how this relationship is structured stay tuned to starsinparadise.com

Tips for up and coming filmmakers in the Bahamas or anywhere else.

Believe it or not you can get some meaningful movie experience just by watching a variety of different movies and paying close attention to things like lighting, the angles of shots, the type of music for certain scenes etc... . However, just watching movies won’t complete the package, find someone who is making movies consistently and talk your way onto the team, even if you have to start as a production assistant standing by to take care of small chores that pop up throughout the day. Even this could be a tough position to get into, but if you offer to work just for experience or deferred payment, more than likely you will beat out the competition.You could end up in a position which will ultimately lead to making money.

Jefford Curre’ and the birth of the Bahamas movie industry

How It All Began

The call of an ingenious visionary to lead the forefront of a new era in cinema history, now known as the Bahamas movie industry.













Once upon a time, in a land not too far away called the Bahamas, there lived a little boy named Jefford Curre’. One day while out to the shopping center with his mother, he was intrigued by how much fun the little people were having inside the store T V set. Without hesitation he made his way to the back of the TV, to see if he could get inside. As he inquired about the little people, his mother explained that they were movie stars. His family was a part of a strict religious order and she wasted no time expounding that movie stars don’t go to Heaven. Missing out on a little milk and honey did not exactly concern Jefford, because the family’s refrigerator always had a great supply of milk. However, when his mother elaborated about the hell fire and brimstone, it almost scared the living day lights out of him. Jefford’s desire to be in the movies never left, but all desire to qualify himself as a movie star was no longer a burning issue. In his child like mind, he devised the perfect plan. He won’t be a movie star, he would just be a guy in the movies, pretending to be a movie star. Later on, as time went by, his parents had modernized their views on the world of movie making.


In 1990, Jefford Curre’ decided to follow up on an earlier vision that was downloaded to him on the necessity to kick-start an indigenous movie industry in the Bahamas. He requested his parents to grant him advance access to his share of the inherited family property, in order to use as collateral for a bank loan. While most of his peers were busy using their money to stay in the latest fashion, updated motor vehicles or build houses, Jefford Curre’s focus remained with a great degree of concern on the nerve dangling fact that his homeland was almost solely depending on tourism. He thought the nation was a sitting duck for an economic crisis, with little or no new industry of global proportion in sight. It did not look good, but it was obviously an issue few wanted to acknowledge as a potential problem. Driven by a sense of mission and destiny, Jefford Curre’ decided that it was time to take action to develop a solution, to buffer potential future crisis.

Part ll Positioning Yourself For Money In The Bahamas Film Industry

Continuing the conversation on "Positioning Yourself For Money" from Jan. 25th 2013 concerning the importance of trust and mentorship in the Bahamas movie and television industry.








Your mentor can be very instrumental in engineering the kind of deals, large enough to generate the kind of income for the making of your first project. Your mentor should be a producer, meaning (a very creative person with money). He/she will show you how to earn money, it may require some sacrifice, that may take you out of your comfort zone, but once you’ve earned the money it is yours. You will then be in the driver’s seat to steer your own project debt free.

We will follow this up later in Stars In Paradise magazine to give you the tools you would need to attract such a person. There are many within the Bahamas cinema culture, the key is knowing what to do and what to say and most of all how to conduct your affairs to gain their confidence. - starsinparadise.com

as writers benefit from
movie development deals













Heavily inspired by the success of box-office superstar, Jefford Curre', the inventor of the Bahamas Film Industry, new writers want to make their dreams come true. Whether they are in the Bahamas, San Francisco or Japan, they want to make this happen with their names still on the writing credits on opening night. It's a wishful desire, but few may have the spiritual fortitude or industry connections to lead a convincing Hollywood battle. Writers want the ultimate recognition and career launch, that could derive from just one of their creative works. Keeping your name in the game, is the name of the game, however it is an extremely difficult thing to accomplish in today's box-office world, driven by name power. Labels with contractual obligations of a well stacked established writers roster, will always find it a better business decision to ignore the risky new comer. In the eyes of fast dividend seeking investors, an unknown writer would find it an easier task to locate a needle in a hay stack, than to expect priority consideration. So how exactly does a new writer get his/her name in lights? Well actually they don’t.

Actually that is not entirely true. The really creative unsigned writer can always figure out a way to use a search light or a candle to illuminate his/her name on the final draft. He/she can accomplish this best while sitting in a dark apartment with no electricity, but other than that, there have been very few options, if any. Before you start laughing at the poor little writing people, let us finish. Stars In Paradise have learned through the grape vines of Hollywood, that getting to keep your name on a manuscript is not just a poor unknown or unpublished writers problem. We have found out that even the established season unknown writers with money, family clout, government connections and beautiful faces can't break this almost impenetrable industry fraternity code. Lets try to remain positive and industrially honest when it comes to the success of screenplay manuscripts or books, it's all about who wrote it, not what it's about or how well it's written.

Is there a 21st. century solution to this age old problem? Keep up with Stars In Paradise magazine at starsinparadise.com. We will bring you the latest patented innovations that were unveiled by Jefford Curre' at the 2012 Winter Season presentations of the Box-office Superstar Summit Tour.

Jefford Curre'. At the core of the Bahamas Film Industry.

Jefford Curre'.
Could he be among the few
positioned well enough
to take the Bahamas
movie industry to the
next level?








With all odds stacked against him, he started his journey as a shy, nerdy, skinny kid, living on a dead end street on the 7 by 21 mile island of New Providence in the Bahamas. Challenging times, hard work, bee stings and fierce discipline, has no doubt played a major role in Jefford Curre’s evolution into a world class, award winning talent. With a whole lot of help, he is successfully rewriting the rules of box-office super-stardom.
To some, he’s a jet setting playboy with a “Midas” touch, to others, he’s a trusted spiritual leader. Whatever your conclusion may be, one thing remains clear and without contest, Jefford Curre’ is more than just a leader, he is an artist beyond compare, and a powerful inspiration to anyone who struggles to make impossible dreams come true.


Follow the path and find out why they call him the Bahamas' leading man of action.

Jefford Curre's pioneering start of the Bahamas Movie Industry continues to inspire filmmakers everywhere.

 
 

Why is Jefford Curre’s “Paradise Intrigue” the most anticipated, if not the most important movie of the Bahamas new number one industry?  

Before the making of “Paradise Intrigue”, the elusive Jefford Curre’ was the Bahamas’ best kept secret, now the whole world is on to them. Like a “Bond style” bounty hunter, running real life intervention missions for the Bahamas government, Jefford Curre’ lived a rather dangerous life. As an English trained specialist, attached to the Royal Bahamas Defence Force, he spent more than 5-1/2 years at the center of non-stop classified action, (don’t bother looking up government files, on an official level he never really existed). However, our research interviews among the command infrastructure, clearly confirmed his presence on the scene. Jefford Curre,’ apparently possessed unique leadership skills while operating at the forefront of what is perhaps one of the world’s most dangerous jobs.

Was it business wizardry, visionary faith or just plain luck that prompted the invention of the Bahamas Movie Industry? These are some of the challenging questions that a team of indigenous researchers are attempting to answer, in the new Jefford Curre’ documentary, by Anafu Pictures. In 1990, after completing his first international tour, Jefford Curre’ was inspired toward a new assignment of a higher order. Wasting no time,he began putting into place the fuel that would enable him to start a fire. A fire that soon became a forest blaze of vision, which progressed into the Bahamas' new number one industry. In 1991 he established Megavision Pictures,(the Bahamas first movie company)in Guanahani Village on Cable Beach, Bahamas. With a small team of dedicated specialists, (development unit 1) his first order of business was to conduct feasibility studies. After overcoming huge pioneering obstacles, he completed development research, with sufficient data to justify the mission toward the creation of a new industry for the Bahamas.

By the Spring of 1994, with savvy negotiations and the assistance of visionary resort operators, the young pioneering entrepreneur moved his office onto Paradise Island and incorporated Megavision Pictures Ltd. Within the first three months he attracted over $27,000,000 in investment interest; along with several dozen projects and film industry related companies, developing under the company’s umbrella. This sparked the official launch of the Bahamas Movie Industry. The indigenous event highlighted that year’s Chamber of Commerce Week, as he officially kicked-off the launch of “PARADISE INTRIGUE” (the Bahamas first movie). It was a summer one could never forget. It was the biggest movie buzz anyone had ever seen on the local scene. Jefford Curre’s Paradise Island, condo took on the atmosphere of a busy Grand Central terminal, an endless stampede of wannabe movie makers, as well as professionals, seeking career change, all aligned themselves to be an important part of the nation’s history. It created (production unit 2) which compromised of almost 4,000 individuals. Many flew in from destinations as far as Europe, Asia, United States, South America and Canada.

Jefford Curre', at the forefront, in command and setting new challenges for the Bahamas movie industry.



Jefford Curre' the Bahamas leading man of action is taking no prisoners. He's closing multi-million dollar deals, that's taking the Bahamas movie industry to the next level.

Happy in his role as an extremely successful artist, Jefford Curre’ is trying his best not to be an activist or a motivator of any kind. However, his uncontestable lead role in the pioneering of the Bahamas Film Industry, makes this very difficult. His pioneering actions, are constantly celebrated as one of the most admired, when it comes to visionary community leadership. Community leaders around the globe have made “The Jefford Curre’ Story” a part of their most reliable studies for motivating people to work against the odds. “It was an awakening”, said one clergyman, comparing Jefford Curre’ to a young Moses, calling him a leader sent by God to lead his people into a new world of box-office excitement. “His bold act”, continued the charismatic clergyman, “Instantly shifted the focus of a people, mentally trapped, in the success of the tourist trade. It sparked a journey toward a brand new number one industry. An industry that would be well within the control of the people of the Bahamas.”

A former Paradise Intrigue production member, who now works as an executive in a highly classified department of government, expressed his concerns for artistic integrity within the Bahamas new number one industry. In an off camera interview he indicated that the rapid rise of newcomers and the elusive high security profile of Jefford Curre’, could by some degree leave room for confusion. There are still a few who may be ignorant of the natural history of the Bahamas indigenous film industry or the Bahamas’ first movie, “Paradise Intrigue”. “For what it is worth, it appears that Jefford Curre’s indigenous pioneering position, is one of the most sought after in the entire industry. It seems that almost every new comer takes the opportunity to enjoy at least 15 minutes of fame, being mistaken as the one that started it all. It’s almost bordering on comedy. We have seen campaign after campaign fall flat on its face. Even with the most expensive well planned attempts, it has proven to be an extremely difficult historical position to steal. I believe there are very good reasons for this. Jefford Curre’ is not only a hard act to follow, his achievements are documented well ahead of the crowd. There is no way to over look, erase or pretend they never took place".

Filmmaking tips from the Bahamas Film Industry

Making your film a reality


If money is no object and you are well established you can make any kind of movie on any subject matter and you can do it on any continent.
if you are just starting out, the best way to make your film a reality without spending a lot of money is to:
1. Base it around the things that you already have.
2.The environment you are in
3.The people around you.
For example, don’t try writing a screenplay that has to take place aboard a speeding yacht, unless you own one or can afford to rent or buy one. If you don’t even know a friend who owns one, the film will never happen.
First, visualize your movie inside your head, shot by shot, cut by cut. Draw out those shots on a storyboard. Next, you’ll need equipment, you don’t have to spend a lot of money on a camera. Just ask a friend or someone you know that has a camera, to borrow their own. Some film schools and civic organizations offer year round training that includes equipment. Finally, there’s post-production. When you have finished shooting your movie, you need to find a good processor to develop your film. Sometimes they give discount rates to students or low – budget productions. Lastly, you will need to edit. After it’s changed to video format you can use a video editing system like: Final cut pro or Avid to do your editing.- starsinparadise.com

Beyond festivals, Film Financing In The Bahamas Film Industry








Continuing the conversation on "Positioning Yourself For Money" from January 30th 2013. Focusing on the importance of trust and mentor-ship in the Bahamas movie and television industry.

 Now lets continue on. Covenant partners mentor-ship is an ancient bonding technique used to guarantee generation success.   It’s more like an insurance program bonded by spiritual connection or a sincerely deep level of commitment.  It has been said that to enter and pull out of such a bond,  brings a curse on the life of the faint-hearted, and  to stay faithful to the covenant, brings enormous prosperity. Well that is what they say, but each of us in the entertainment business can decide whether to believe it or not.

Stars In Paradise would like to point out that  studio executives are approached every day and at any given time,  by highly qualified people, with a variety of propositions and proposals.  Being highly qualified sometimes has its drawbacks, especially when the executives are in the market for teachable individuals who can execute new innovations.  Being  qualified and set in the ways of previous training sometimes don't fit the demands.  This is because qualification usually comes with an attitude that says  "I know what to do, let me do this thing better, give me the job and back off until pay day".  Sometimes it is quite true that the individual may have a lot to offer, but if your attitude lacks humility and show clear signs that you are not teachable when it comes to another way of  achieving the same thing, you won’t get in.  

 There is very little an individual can do to change qualifications earned over long years of study and hard work, but there is a lot one can do to change an attitude that’s slowing them down.  First,  you must put yourself in the other person’s shoe.  If an individual has built an interesting empire, they have done it by doing things a certain way.  It has worked for them and has helped them progress consistently.  Asking them to adapt to your way, which is yet to be proven beneficial is .......to be continued... - starsinparadise.com
