U.S. THEATRICAL, FOREIGN, TELEVISION & HOME VIDEO DISTRIBUTION
In the United States alone there are revenues from the theatrical release, pay TV, free prime time TV, cable TV, and syndicated TV and Satellite TV. A major source of revenue is from video/DVD sales which may account for as much as 75% of a film's US revenues. It does not include foreign box office revenues which may be 50% - 60% of the total theatrical gross. Virtually every country around the world has all of the same ancillary rights available to generate additional revenues.
Thus, it is conceivable to anticipate generating revenues even before release provided the film meets certain criteria and adheres to specific business principles.
RISK FACTOR: Although, the film business has historically been characterized as risky, in today's market, with the extraordinary number of ancillary rights available, a picture filmed in color, with an experienced director and recognizable cast and with commercially viable subject matter is likely to have potential especially if independently financed.
Cyclone has engaged Cardinal XD with respect to foreign sales and licensing for SHIVER and Circus Road Films with respect to domestic sales and licensing for SHIVER.
