2. Artistic Profile

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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 it teaches.

  4. 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.

  5. 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 Affective Fallacies.

  6. Our creative division researches universal principles in relation to cinema, drama, music, communication, literature and design.

  7. Product placement is suggested as long as it doesn't detract from the creative aspects and intentions of the motion picture.

  8. We aim to produce PG and PG-13 rated pictures, because of their highest box office gross and widest target audience.

  9. All QSE motion Pictures reflect the time of their production even if the action takes place in a different time period.
