letting them perform our domestic theatrical distribution.
Before optioning a literary property, engaging pre-sales and formal approach
to a major studio, QSE researches thoroughly every property, its business
characteristics, timing for release, target audience, comparative pictures,
major talent, and creative attributes.
If a picture does not make business sense to major studios and is not green-lit
at its first try we drop it and choose another literary property.

Pictures are negotiated to be marketed by a major studio for major global
success, creating a strong US brand-presence through television ad campaigns,
for a minimum of $ 9 KK each, and using medium tie-ins, product placement

Conflicts of any type will be avoided or resolved by peaceful negotiation

2. Artistic Profile
The standard of 'A' motion pictures is our norm. An 'A' picture for us
is determined by the harmony of all audience, visual, audio, and literary
qualities focused on the theme of the property .The unity of cast and crew
towards this focus is essential.
Every literary property considered for production has to qualify in areas
of entertainment power, high concept, high intensity, "page turner, story
wholeness, and story and character continuity.
For us to decide to produce or be involved in producing a certain property,
we must be fascinated with the story, its vitality, and the worthwhile principles
The head of each production department, representing cast or crewmembers
is to offer appropriate suggestions and support to the director regarding
his or her vision of the concept.
Creative production departments shall do their own formalist analysis and
breakdowns, considering principles of their responsibility, in relation
to the Aristotelian structure analysis provided by the director, to prevent
Our creative division researches universal principles in relation to cinema,
drama, music, communication, literature and design.
Product placement is suggested as long as it doesn't detract from the creative
aspects and intentions of the motion picture.
We aim to produce PG and PG-13 rated pictures, because of their highest
box office gross and widest target audience.
All QSE motion Pictures reflect the time of their production even if the
action takes place in a different time period.
