Why Motion Picture Industry for a Small Country?
And why not?
- It has been said that "Motion Pictures Made America". I personally believe,
that films can make almost any country noticeable, needed, and important in
the world context. News is what triggers the investors activity. Motion picture
is a news about country, its people, and culture. For America this news in
most cases is global respect and even adoration. Film industry may in some
cases be better opportunity to invest then the stock market. Films hold, renew,
and change the reputation of a country, America has used this most impressively.
The United States motion picture industry system is in a way far ahead of
the rest of the world, and is a global network. The network is open for anyone
to participate in, even for the small in size.
- Film industry progresses well also during the more difficult economic times,
as the need for people to escape reality increases, and this is one of the
best ways to release stress. People have a natural thirst for movies that
is as real as a thirst during a hot summer day. This natural thirst is increased
constantly with the opening of media campaigns in a lot of media windows separately
for each film. To create a true thirst for a small country, the resources
of the major industry are important to attach. The development financing of
the country's group of pictures would be arranged by themselves, but the production
budget in a sise of mid seven figure amount is orchestrated in the system
of distribution studio, bank, completion bond guarantee, and the law firm.
This is safe only in this setup, as in this case the return of the invested
development funds and engaging distribution can be most certin. I have no
doubt, that several small countries are not an exception here, they have people
who are capable of creating this thirst for their country and are able to
take it to the rest of the world.
- Most of the countries are experienced in developing global projects. Motion
pictures being the art of arts, encompassing in itself selectively the rest
of the arts has also the greatest appeal of them all. Film industry develops
often faster then other fields because of its quick turnaround and creative
nature. This may be the cause for why it is called the industry, and is often
the standard example for other industries to learn from. The artistic skills
can serve the needs of state and its people when they fill their functions
properly. It must be noted, that only the US based major industry model that
is followed by several European producers, (also by Quicksummer) reckon the
needs of the marketplace and the industry. The developing of 3 motion pictures
by a small country is doable. You may want to compare it to other major projects,
that you have already succeeded with in your country. The main thing is to
do everything right at the first time. To let anyone destroy the reputation
of approaching the industry in a premature manner is unacceptable. The detail
in the preparations must be imense, only then can the art of arts surprise
us with open doors and good opportunities.
- The benefit of industrially producing the first films would contain of
the following: 1. Gross receipts. 2. Brand development, but not as much on
the bases of what we film in our country, but rather on what they did. We
are noted for as, what have they actually accomplished, how do they think,
what kind of choices did they make: do they like the bawdy songs or the classics.
Only the fact, that the films were produced inside the major industry system
and were triggered from your country, would seem as an impossible task for
most to fill. 3. In popularizing some of the countries sights. It has been
thought, that some countries may not have much to offer the world. I believe
all regions are unique and have jewels that have not been discovered. In Estonia
it is for example the Hanseatic towns. 4. The skills learned by filmmakers
in the process. 5. In developing the technical base for the industry. 6. Becoming
under the attention of the major film industry. 7. Quickening of the economic
- Motion picture industry does not have to have a marginal role in the smaller
countries. This industrial sector may have been distant to us and we may not
even have know from which end to start to approach it. We hope Quicksummer
has built you this bridge that you have not had so far. Even the majority
of the producers in the US don't know the intrinsic workings of the industry.
Anyone approaching it should use the right keys to do it.

How to set up the industry in your area?
- In a small country it may be possible to tap in to risk capital
funds, and have the development part owned by the government. Welcome

in this case QuickSummer. Welcome Entertainment, would be the parent company's

QuickSummer needs to be registered in the United States as Limited Liability
Company, otherways anyone outside the US could not participate in it.
It would be wise to remember, that there is no point to reinvent the industry.
Following specific culture and respecting industry principles creates respect
in return. The fact, that someone has the industry engine working right is a

coded plane. Even if one has this code, it is not enough, it needs to be put
in to practice.
