Looking for investors interested in supporting a feature film

By AIAP Admin on November 25th, 2014

Arian Harandi says: 

My name is Arian Harandi and I am an Iranian film maker. I would like to invite you to watch my new short film which is doing very well at Film Festivals across America: https://vimeo.com/100927776. 

We are now working on a feature film entitled “The Big Day” which we would like to film next summer.  I am reaching out to you today because we are looking for investors interested in supporting the film. We have an amazing script and a great business plan for the film. I would appreciate the opportunity to send you the business plan for you to look at. 

Iranian film makers are scarce in America.  I am speaking specifically about Iranians making American films. The world doesn't know about the great talents that our culture can provide, and I would love the opportunity to show my work and my talent and try to make a name as an Iranian film maker in the American cinemas. 

If you are interested in investing in the film, I would love the opportunity to speak to you further about the project. Also if you or anyone you know would be interested in donating to the project, we would be grateful for any amount, donations can be made from our website. 

You can also check out our website, from there you can link to our Twitter adn Facebook as well.  I thank you again for your time and look forward to speaking to you further about the project.
