Filming of a horror flick entided Oliver Twisted got under way Oct 12, starring Erik Estrada ("Officer Ponch" on the old TV series CHiPs) and Lynn Redgrave (Georgy Girt). It sounds like a run-of-the-mill premise; a psychologist tracks down a patient who has gone berserk. The unusual part of the production is its groundbreaking method of financing the $80,000 movie. n A f A Ife. STEVE PERSALL The usual practice involves bank loans, t studio backing andor private investments to pay production costs. The plan to finance Oliver Twisted is a revolutionary change of pace that could influence film financing techniques in the future. All the money was raised with donations from subscribers to a statewide film production newsletter called The Blue Sheet, This publication serves as an information grapevine for artists and technicians seeking their next assignment on a Florida-based production. A group of adventurous Blue Sheet subscribers created Florida Film Investment Inc. in January of 1995 and started selling $10 shares to other subscribers. Others made additional donations to the fund whenever possible. In return, those 521 shareholders were guaranteed jobs on one of the first two films produced by Florida Film Investment Two 0 those shareholders are Dennis and Fern Alexander of Screen Test Beauty Salon and Production Co. in Pinellas Park. Shell be in charge of the make-up on Oliver Twisted; he's an associate producer of the movie and will produce a behind-the-scenes video and publicity stills. They and most of their partners are working without a fee, hoping to collect their SUNSHINE SPEEDWAY SATURDAY, OCTOBER 19th One Stop auio nans mini stoat Championship Florida Lesends Late Models Oval Drags "Q" Auto Accident Attorney Figure 8's Auto Trader Street Stock Domino's Pizza Open Wheel Modifieds SCHEDULE Pits Open 4 00 pm Grandstand 5 00 pm Tine Trials 6 00 pm Pacing 7 CO pm 4J00 Ulmtrton Rd (Hwy. 688 Just South of the SL PetcClwtr. Airport profits from video or theatrical releases of the film. What a concept Florida filmmakers banding together to guide their professional lives instead of waiting for a studio or a deep-pockets investor to provide work for them. "It's a very exciting idea and the rest of the industry is looking at what we re doing here in Florida because it hasn't been done before," Dennis Alexander said in a telephone interview. "We've been competing with Hollywood for a long time to bring film production here. Banks and lending institutions just aren't savvy enough to FILM know what it takes to make a movie and how much of a return (on their investments) there can be." Oliver Twisted is the first of a tongue-in-cheek horror trilogy, according to Florida Film Investment president and auditor Carolanne Momingstar. The others have the working titles Great Executions and David Copperhead. Momingstar joked that the movies are intended to "scare the Dickens out of you." Her intentions for Florida Film Investment are much more serious. "Our main goal is to get people work in the industry and use Florida talent" she said from her office in Orlando. "Right now, I'd estimate that about one-quarter of our shareholders are from the Tampa Bay area. "This is the first time it has ever been tried. If s a dream we've been wanting to make real for a long time." ItU be interesting to see if Oliver Twisted finds an audience and makes a profit for the shareholders. . . and even more fascinating to see how Hollywood responds if tliat happens.
