__(Full name of Film Company)__, a ___(State)____ Corporation, (hereinafter referred to as the “Company”) intends to produce a feature-length motion picture, presently entitled “_____(title)_______”, and three short non-theatrical promotional films, based on and edited from the feature length motion picture (all of which collectively shall be referred to as the “Motion Picture”), and offer limited partnership interests in a partnership to be formed for that purpose under the laws of the State of __(state)__ (hereinafter referred to as the “Partnership”). The general partner(s) of the partnership (hereinafter referred to as the “General Partner”) shall be the _____(Full name of Company)___ and any other parties selected by it who sign the Limited Partnership Agreement for the Partnership as general partners prior to the formation of the Partnership. The addition of general partners shall not affect or impair the obligations of any Limited Partner nor give rise to any right of rescission.
The Motion Picture, set in the present, is the story of a contemporary American family having to deal with the fixation of the youngest son to enter into the film and music business. A synopsis of the feature-length motion picture, as currently proposed, is included attached hereto. _______(Name of screenplay writer)_____ authored the screenplay. The author and ___(name of Company)___, a __(state)__ corporation, are the sole owners of the Company, which was established for the purpose of producing the Motion Picture.
The Partnership will acquire the Motion Picture production rights to the screenplay, and produce and oversee distribution of the Motion Picture. The Company will contribute all of its interests in the screenplay production rights to the Partnership in exchange for its General Partnership interests.
The General Partner will make no other financial contributions as such, but will receive FORTY PERCENT (40%) of any profits. If there are no profits, Limited Partners will bear the entire risk of loss to the extent of their respective contributions. Any losses in excess of that amount will be borne by the General Partner. For contributing the entire capital of the Partnership, the Limited Partners will receive SIXTY PERCENT (60%) of the profits of the Partnership.
An investor’s share of the net profits will bear the same proportion to the Limited Partners’ aggregate 60% share of the net profits of the Partnership as his/her contribution bears to the total amount raised. The amount to be raised hereunder is a minimum of $2,000,000 and a maximum of $2,500,000. (See section entitled “Use of Proceeds.”) There is no overcall. The General Partner may form the Partnership at any time after such minimum capitalization has been raised, but may continue to accept contributions until the maximum of $2,500,000 has been raised. A $25,000 contribution will entitle a Limited Partner to a 1% share of the profits if $2,500,000 is raised and to a 1.333% share thereof if $2,000,000 is raised; if more than $2,000,000 and less than $2,500,000, is raised, that Limited Partner’s share of the profits will vary proportionately. In all events, the Limited Partners, in the aggregate, will always be entitled to receive 60% of the profits of the Partnership.
If the General Partner believes additional funds are necessary for carrying on the affairs of the Partnership, the General Partner has the right to advance, or to borrow in the Partnership’s name, the amounts deemed necessary; any amounts so advanced or borrowed are to be repaid prior to the repayment to the Limited Partner(s) of their contribution(s).
If, and to the extent, the General Partner (or any of them) invests in the Partnership, it (or they) will become a Limited Partner as well and will receive a proportionate share of the Limited Partner’s interest in the profits in addition to a share thereof as General Partner.
The rights and obligations of the General and Limited Partners are set forth in the Partnership Agreement. This must be signed by all subscribers to the Limited Partnership interest and copies thereof may be obtained from the General Partner.
NUMBER AND TYPE OF SECURITIES OFFERED
A maximum of 100 Limited Partnership interests (hereinafter referred to as the “Interests”) are being offered at a per Interest price of $25,000, payable by $15,000 cash and $10,000 secured by an irrevocable letter of credit. A limited number of fractional Interests may be available at the sole discretion of the General Partner.
Subsequent to the formation of the Partnership, additional Limited Partners will be admitted as subscriptions for Interests are made and payments received, until the date when the General Partner shall determine to discontinue the offering of Interests.
Such date will occur upon the earlier of the following events:
Sale of all 100 Interests or the raising of $2,500,000 or such lessor amount as the General Partner deems appropriate to the production and distribution of the Motion Picture, from other sources, including loans, deferments, pre-sales and grants;
April 30, 200_ unless such date is otherwise extended by the General Partner; or
On such date as the General Partner deems appropriate.
USE OF PROCEEDS
The cash proceeds of this offering, assuming the sale of all Interests offered will aggregate $1,500,000. When combined with borrowings based on Limited Partner’s letters of credit aggregating $1,000,000, the Partnership will have a total of $2,500,000 in cash and liquid assets with which to begin operations. Such amounts will be utilized approximately as follows:
$ 100,000 or offering expenses in connection with the sale of Interests and formation of the Partnership.
$ 103,000 for expenditures related to development, casting, location searches and other expenses related to the pre-production of the Motion Picture.
$ 217,000 to be retained by the Partnership for production contingencies and additional fund-raising expenses.
$ 165,000 to be retained by the Partnership for prints, publicity and other expenses related to the promotion and distribution of the Motion Picture.
$ 1,915,000 to the Company to produce the Motion Picture pursuant to the budget included as Attachment D herein.
$ 2,500,000 TOTAL
The General Partner believes, however, that it may be able to reduce the need for production funds by securing deferrals, from persons or organizations who will be furnishing services and/or materials to the production. To the extent that the General Partner is able to do so, and to the extent the General Partner believes that the reserve can be reduced, it may elect to form the Partnership and go forward with the production with less than, $2,500,000. any arrangements providing for deferred compensation to persons or organizations so furnishing services or materials to the production will be payable only out of the General Partner’s share of profits and will, therefore, not affect the Limited Partner’s share of profits or delay the return of their contribution.
All cash proceeds of this offering obtained prior to the formation of the Partnership shall be placed by the General Partner in an escrow account at ____(Name and address of Bank)______. Such escrow funds will be maintained by the General Partner and shall not be used (unless a contributor shall otherwise agree) for any purpose until at least the Minimum
Aggregate Contribution of $2,000,000 has been received and the Partnership shall commence.
To the extent the General Partner advances funds for production requirements, it will be reimbursed upon formation of the Partnership. The General Partner has advanced approximately $25,000 to date for expenses such as travel and development expenses.
In the event that less than $2,500,000 is raised from the sale of interests, and in the event that supplemental funds are not raised from other sources, such as pre-sales of certain rights, the shortfall will be absorbed by reducing or eliminating the reserves for prints, publicity and other expenses related to distribution and production contingencies, and by seeking deferments and lower salaries from all salaried personnel.
As the budget included as D is an estimate, actual expenditures may vary from those shown, depending upon production and distribution requirements. The Company will have the authority to vary such expenditures without seeking the approval of the Limited Partners.
THE RISK TO INVESTORS
A prospective investor should be aware that this is a highly speculative investment. The sole business of the Partnership will be the production and arrangement for the exploitation of the Motion Picture. While no accurate industry statistics are available, it is a fact that there is a high ratio of loss to investors in limited partnerships formed to produce motion pictures. The risk of loss is especially high in contrast with the prospects for any profit. These securities should not be purchased unless the investor is prepared for the possibility of total loss.
The process of producing a feature-length motion picture is time-consuming and expensive. A high degree of planning and organization is essential to controlling the costs of making the Motion Picture. Many factors may influence costs which are beyond the control of the Producer and Director. There may be productions delays occasioned by illness, accidents, strikes, faulty equipment or weather. Scenes may need to be reshot, or additional footage filmed. Such matters may jeopardize production of the Motion Picture within the budget, and require additional funds for the completion of the Motion Picture.
The production budget for the Motion Picture is approximately $1,915,000. In addition, the Partnership has a production contingency reserve of $217,000. While some feature films are produce for less than $2,132,000, that amount is considered extremely small by industry standards. There can be no assurance that such amount will be adequate to meet the production costs of the Motion Picture (the average major studio budget being approximately $10,000,000 per film).
In the event the Company does not have sufficient funds to complete the Motion Picture, the Partnership, and thus the Limited Partners, may deem it necessary and desirable to advance additional funds to the Company (although the Limited Partners have no obligation to do so). If additional financing is required to complete production of the Motion Picture, such additional financing may have to be recouped prior to the return of the investment of the Limited Partners. To the extent the production costs of the Motion Picture increase, the amount of the gross receipts necessary to yield sufficient cash to return the Limited Partner’s investment will increase by a factor of three to four times the increase in production costs. If additional financing is required and cannot be obtained by the Partnership or the Company, the Motion Picture may have to be sold in its incomplete state to a company which will complete it, or the production of the Motion Picture may have to be terminated. In the latter case, the Limited Partners could lose their entire investment in the Interests.
The Partnership proposes to borrow up to $1,000,000 in connection with the production and distribution of the Motion Picture. If the Partnership assets were transferred, voluntarily or by liquidation or foreclosure, and at the time of the transfer the liabilities of the Partnership exceeded the Partnership’s basis in its assets, taxable gain would be realized, and taxes on such gain would have to be paid by the Partners even though the Partnership would have no cash to distribute to its partners.
If the General Partner advances or borrows monies in the Partnership’s name, which it may do, such monies will be repaid prior to the repayment to the Limited Partners of their capital contributions and, accordingly, such loans and/or advances might result in a considerable delay in the repayment of the Limited Partners’ contributions or in a loss to investors if such additional funds exceed incoming revenues, if any, from distribution and exhibit of the Motion Picture.
The General Partner has the right, in its discretion, at any time, before or after the completion of production of the Motion Picture, to sell any or all of the Partnership’s rights in the Motion Picture. If all rights are sold or otherwise disposed, the Partnership will terminate.
The financial statement which the General Partner has agreed to furnish to the Limited Partners may be unaudited statements and the Limited Partners will be relying on the General Partners concerning the accuracy of such statements.
An individual subscriber may agree in writing to the use of his contributions prior to the formation of the Partnership or waive his absolute right of refund in the event of insufficiency of funds in abandonment prior to formation. The General Partner will be liable to subscribers who agree to immediate use but who do not waive full refund of their contributions, but the subscriber must rely on the General Partner’s ability to repay. A subscriber who agrees to earlier use may, under certain circumstances, be personally liable as a general partner for production debts incurred prior to the date of formation of the Partnership. Investors should note that there is no advantage to entering into these agreements. In fact, there is a distinct disadvantage since persons who do so risk loss of their entire investment even if the Partnership is never formed. Subscribers who agree to the use of their contributions forthwith but do not waive their right to refund may never be reimbursed in the event that the Partnership is not formed.
Even after the Motion Picture has been completed, the Partnership may incur further expenses for, among other things, accounting and legal services, and in connection with the efforts of the General Partner to arrange for the distribution and other exploitation of the Motion Picture. All of such expenses will be payable from Partnership funds before repayment of the capital investments of the Limited Partners.
The offering price of the Interests has been established by the General Partner based on its estimate of Partnership capital requirements in connection with the acquisition of the story rights and screenplay, production and distribution of the Motion Picture, recovery of expenses incurred in connection with organizing the Partnership and offering the Interest, and fees desired by the General Partner in connection with managing the Partnership’s business. There can be no assurance that any market will exist for the resale of the Interest, let alone that the Interest could be resold at their offering price; nor can there be any assurance that the price of the Interests will be returned through the conduct of the business of the Partnership or upon liquidation of the Partnership.
As of the date of this offering circular, the General Partner has made no arrangements for the distribution of the Motion Picture. (Note: See “Distribution of the Motion Picture.”) Either prior to or after completion of the Motion Picture, the General Partner intends to enter into a distribution agreement or agreements for the distribution thereof. However, there is no assurance that any distribution agreement(s) will ever be entered into and the Motion Picture may never be distributed.
Distribution involves negotiations with sub-distributors, bookers, and theater owners and operators both in the United States and foreign countries, negotiations with agents
for distribution to domestic and foreign broadcast and non-broadcast television, negotiations for sales to public television, and perhaps negotiating for the production and mechanical duplication of the Motion Picture’s soundtrack, if such soundtrack is considered to be commercially viable. Such distribution will also involve significant expenditures in advance of received revenues for 35mm and 16mm prints, video cassettes, publicity materials, personnel to assist in the distribution effort, and media advertising and promotion in the markets in which the Motion Picture is to be exhibited. Lack of effective distribution is one of the principal reasons a motion picture is commercially unsuccessful.
Distribution will also involve competition for theater bookings with independent distributors and all of the major studio distributors are larger, have greater resources to utilize in film distribution, have more experienced personnel and greater leverage with theater owners because of their continuous access to commercial films.
Because the distribution of motion pictures is highly competitive, any distributor with which the Partner will contract for distribution of the Motion Picture will be competing with numerous other companies, many of which will have significant financial resources and distribution experiences. The Motion Picture will be in competition with other feature-length motion pictures for theater dates, theater locations, audience, and the attention of movie critics and members of the various media who write about or publicize films. The fact that the Motion Picture is independently produced on a limited budget by an entity with limited resources, will, in all likelihood, be a competitive disadvantage. Finally, the investor must be aware that all motion pictures face competition from many other varieties of public entertainment, particularly network, public and cable television.
Since the Partnership will seek to produce and distribute only the Motion Picture, it is totally dependent on the commercial results of this one project. This lack of diversification substantially increases the risks inherent in motion picture production and distribution.
LEGAL AND TAX RISKS
An investment in the Interests will be subject to certain risks arising out of federal income tax considerations, including:
the possibility of the Internal Revenue Service audits and resulting possibility of amendments to the Partnership and Partners’ tax returns; and
possible adverse tax consequences resulting from changes in the current tax code and/or administrative interpretations thereof; and
tax liability on the part of Partners in the event that the Partnership assets (e.g. the Motion Picture) are transferred voluntarily or by liquidation or foreclosure, if at the time of transfer the liabilities of the Partnership (e.g. for borrowings secured by the Letters of Credit) exceed the Partnership’s basis in its assets (resulting in a taxable gain); such tax liability would exist even though the Partnership would have no cash to distribute to its Partners.
Ownership of Interests should be viewed as a long-term investment, which may not yield short-term cash flow. As indicated in “Federal Income Tax Matters,” it is not anticipated that there will be available significant federal income tax deductions in excess of taxable income from the Partnership.
Prospective investors should consult their own tax advisors with respect to tax and related matters concerning investments in the Partnership. No ruling will be sought from the Internal Revenue Service that the Partnership will be treated as a partnership for Federal income tax purposes and not as an association taxable as a corporation.
The Interests offered hereby have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, or any applicable state securities laws. The Interests are transferable only with the consent of a General Partner, subject to certain conditions including registration of the Interests under the Securities Act of 1933 and any state securities laws, or the receipt of an opinion of counsel that such registration is not required. As Limited Partners will have no rights to require registration of their Interests, the Interests may only be resold in transactions exempt from the registration requirements of federal and state securities laws.
Prior to this offering, there was no market for the Interests. Immediately subsequent to this offering, and partly because of the restrictions on transfer of the Interest, there is not expected to be a market for the Interests. The purchase of the Interests should therefore be viewed as a long-term illiquid investment.
A Limited Partner of the Partnership will generally not be liable for debts or obligations of the Partnership in excess of his or her capital contribution. A Limited Partner may, however, be liable for the full amount of his or her capital contribution even if part of that contribution has been returned by way of distributions. Distributions to Limited Partners may be subject to return to the Partnership upon action by creditors if after such distribution the Partnership’s liabilities exceed its assets.
The Certificate and Articles provide that the Limited Partners may exercise rights relating to the internal affairs or organization of the Partnership (such as a right to vote on removal of the General Partner or amendment of the Certificate and Article). Questions have been raised periodically as to whether such rights provide a basis for determining that the Limited Partners would not be entitled to the limitation of liability for which the Certificate provides. Counsel has advised that since there is no authoritative precedent on this issue, a question exists as to whether the exercise (or perhaps even the existence) of such rights might provide a basis on which a court could hold that the liability of the Limited Partners for obligations of the Partnership may not be limited.
The Limited Partners of the Partnership are prohibited by the Certificate and Articles from participating in the management of the Partnership as such participation would destroy the limited liability of such Limited Partnerships, and thus must rely exclusively on the management abilities and decisions of the General Partner.
While the General Partner of the Partnership is required to act in good faith and with integrity in managing the affairs of the Partnership, the Certificate and Articles provide that the General Partner will not be liable to the Limited Partnership for any act or omission, except in the event of fraud, intentional wrongdoing, or gross negligence. The Certificate and Articles require the Partnership to indemnify the General Partner(s) against any expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees), claim or liability incurred by them in connection with the business of the Partnership.
MISCELLANEOUS AND GENERAL RISKS
The General Partner is not required to and may not devote its full time and efforts to the production and distribution of the Motion Picture.
Limited Partners are not entitled to participate in management of the Partnership. The General Partner has sole management authority over the Partnership and its affairs, including the right to dissolve it, but the General Partner may enter into arrangements with others including, but not limited to, co-production or joint venture arrangements, whereby the General Partner may share the power to control the production and exploitation of the Motion Picture.
The Interests acquired by a Limited Partner are not assignable without the General Partner’s consent, which may be arbitrarily withheld. Even if the assignment is permitted, there is not expected to be a ready market for the Limited Partnership Interests.
The General Partner has the right to cause additional persons, firms or corporations to become general partners at any time prior to the formation of the Partnership or to enter into joint ventures or co-production agreements, provided that no share of profits payable to Limited Partners is affected thereby. No right or rescission will be offered to the Limited Partners by reason of the addition of additional general partners.
There are several conflicts of interest, which arise out of the relationships between the principals of the Company, the Partnership, and the Authors and co-producers. Such conflicts of interest may expose the Limited Partners to the risk that decisions made and transactions entered into by and between the above parties may not reflect the best interest of the Limited Partners.
While the experience of the principals of the Company is extensive in the area of film production, the company itself has no prior history.
While the original footage shot will be safeguarded, there exists a minimal risk that a portion of the original footage could be damaged, stolen or lost during or prior to development, or at the time of final printing. If such damage or loss occurred after the cessation of filming and the departure of the cast, it would be very costly to attempt to reshoot the damaged or lost portions. The Partnership carries insurance against risk of loss by destruction, theft or fire.
PARTNERSHIP INTEREST IN MOTION PICTURE
All of the rights, interests and obligations of the General Partner in the Motion Picture, including the screenplay, except for novelization rights, which the General Partner is retaining, will be assigned, without any royalty or other payment obligation on the Partnership’s part, to the Partnership upon its formation.
These rights, which extend for the entire duration of the copyright in the Motion Picture, any renewals or extensions, include: The right to copyright the Motion Picture, the right to produce and exploit it, and all subsidiary rights including the right to produce one or more sequels or remakes, or to produce video programs or series based upon the Motion Picture or any character therein.
PROFITS, LOSSES AND DISTRIBUTION
Based upon present estimates, the film rentals (monies received by the Motion Picture’s distribution from theaters exhibiting the Motion Picture) derived from the Picture would have to equal approximately four to six times the production cost of the Motion Picture in order for the Limited Partners to receive the return of their contributions. See “Estimate of Profits.” The Partnership’s receipts derived from any source in connection with the exploitation of the Motion Picture (with the exception of novelization rights) will be allocated in the following order of priority:
To the expenses of the Partnership;
To the repayment of loans and advances made to the Partnership, and interest thereon;
To the repayment of the aggregate Limited Partner’s investment, ratably among the Limited Partners.
Any receipts in excess of the foregoing will be deemed profits of the Partnership and are allocatable 60% to the Limited Partners (and, among the Limited Partners, in direct proportion of their investments) and 40% to the General Partner.
Losses arising after profits have been realized will be allocated against profits; losses in excess of profits will be allocated entirely to the Limited Partners, in direct proportion of their investments (and ratably among them).
The investment tax credit, if any, for Federal income tax purposes, has been allocated to the Limited Partners.
As the Partnership receives funds, the General Partner, after paying or providing for any Partnership debts and liabilities, including taxes, contingent liabilities and projected operating needs, will pay such receipts in accordance with the foregoing order of priority. Distributions will be made at least semi-annually.
Profits already distributed to Partners and Limited Partners’ investments previously returned to them may be subject, in that order, to be repaid by the recipients to the Partnership should obligations of the Partnership thereafter require.
A portion of the producer’s and author’s fees payable to the General Partner are to be deferred and paid only out of the General Partner’s share of the profits; such fees accordingly, will not affect the Limited Partner’s participation in profits, if any.
DISTRIBUTION OF THE MOTION PICTURE
The producers of the Motion Picture will write a distribution and marketing plan that will be implemented during the production stages. The plan will represent the best case scenario for the film and is designed to maximize exposure and profits for the production, and if possible, provide pre-sales agreements and co-production financing for future Partnership projects. A distribution and marketing plan is essential in order to better define audience appeal and film distributor interest. The plan will not only be aimed at the North American market, but also the world market, including Europe, South America, the Scandinavian countries, etc. The distribution and marketing plan will include a time schedule outlining (1) when to approach a major film distributor, (2) what rights to negotiate, (3) what film festivals and film markets to attend, (4) foreign theatrical sales strategies, and (5) television, cable sales, home video rights, etc. By having access to a well developed film distribution plan, the producers can effectively evaluate the best possible distribution deal, and better negotiate contract terms with a major film distributor both in the United States and abroad. What follows is a capsule description of the categories which the final distribution and marketing plan will address in greater detail.
THEATRICAL DISTRIBUTION (Domestic)
The theatrical motion picture market is, of course, the most important and most prestigious market for any feature film. The producers of the Motion Picture will approach the major film distributors such as Warner Brothers, Paramount, United Artists, Universal, Columbia, etc., about distribution. These major distributors offer the most prestigious route for the independent producer. The majors virtually handle all the most important films, and are able to secure the best theaters for booking at the best times of the year. The producers will also approach the mini-majors, such as Cannon Film Group, New World Picture, etc., and independent film distributors such as New York Films, Cinecom International Films, Almi/Cinema 5, etc. It is hoped that a United States distribution deal can be successfully negotiated during post production or festivals showings of the Motion Picture. With the subject matter of the Motion Picture and its wide audience appeal, the producers are confident that a major company will be interested in the Motion Picture.
These rights include distribution to clubs, airlines, colleges, etc. The producers will retain these rights and negotiate them with a distributor who specializes in non-theatrical sales. Three edited, shortened versions of the feature length motion picture and/or short features about the making of the Motion Picture will be made for service to cable television operators prior to the Motion Pictures release to promote and exploit the upcoming film release. This market could allow for thousands of dollars in revenues for the producers, and it is the intention of the Partnership to maximize the Motion Picture’s exposure in this vital and profitable market place. Offers of distribution have been made to cover portions of this major market.
Television sales include network showings, subscription TV, cable TV direct satellite, independent television stations, syndication rights, etc. These rights would be negotiated and granted to the distributor handling United States theatrical sales as part of the initial distribution agreement. However, these rights would not be given away since they can account for a large source of revenue for the distributor and producers. A sale to network television is somewhat dependent upon the Motion Picture’s success in its theatrical release, i.e., box office receipts and critical response. These factors dictate whether or not a network sale could range from three hundred thousand to five hundred thousand dollars depending upon the particular network and its programming policies and schedule. Sales to the cable and subscription television industry could command a bottom line figure of two hundred thousand dollars. Although these rights will be handled by the Motion Picture’s theatrical distributor, the profit participation will be greater for the Partnership than for the production company, thereby resulting in greater profits to the Partnership in the latter stages of its distribution and licensing window.
HOME VIDEO CASSETTE MARKET
The United States home video market is exploding and has become a very lucrative source of income for film distributors and independent producers. Presently, there are over 30 million VCR units in American homes; conservative projections indicate that number will increase to 45 million by 2001. Regarding the home video rights, the producers will negotiate with the major film distributors such as Paramount, Universal, United Artists, Columbia, etc., who have established the most effective distribution network for the licensing of product in this rapidly expanding market. It is hoped that one of these distributors will handle the Motion Picture.
FOREIGN THEATRICAL SALES
Outside North America, the world theatrical market can account for hundreds of thousands of dollars in gross revenues to producers. Markets such as Germany, France, England, Italy, the Scandinavian countries, Japan, South America, etc., all actively negotiate distribution agreements for American films. The producers will directly handle sales to all foreign territories in an effort to increase profits, and to arrange pre-sale agreements and co-production financing for future Partnership projects.
FOREIGN TELEVISION AND HOME VIDEO SALES
Again, the producer will directly handle sales to the foreign television market which, at present is rapidly growing because of the advent of cable in Europe, Japan, etc. Consequently, the demand for and the prices paid for American film programming are at their highest in years. Of course, licensing fees vary from country to country, but bottom line figure of total foreign sales could exceed three hundred thousand dollars, and depending on the Motion Picture’s box office and critical response, the figure could be much higher.
FILM FESTIVALS AND FILM MARKETS
The producers will plan a schedule of American and foreign film festivals to attend in order to showcase the Motion Picture and to effectuate sales. The most prestigious film festivals, such as Cannes, Berlin, Milan, Los Angeles, etc., not only premiere films, but will also operate well organized film markets where buyers from around the world view new productions for ultimate distribution in their home markets. Agreements can be made at these festivals for foreign as well as U.S. theatrical distribution, and films winning prizes or receiving critical praise are sold for substantially higher up-front guarantees than anticipated.
FEDERAL INCOME TAX MATTERS
The Partnership will not seek a ruling from the Internal Revenue Service as to whether the Partnership will be treated for Federal income tax purposes as a partnership rather than an association taxable as a corporation. Even if applied for, there is no assurance that such a ruling would issue. Under current Federal income tax laws, a partnership, as such, is not subject to Federal income taxes, so that a partner will take into account on his personal tax return his distributive share of partnership income, gains, losses, deductions or credits (including the investment credit, if any) for the taxable year of the partnership ending within or with the partner’s taxable year.
If, for any reasons, the Partnership is determined to be an association taxable as a corporation for Federal income tax purposes, the following consequences, among others, would result: income earned by the Partnership would be taxable at corporate rates; distribution of funds to Partners would be taxable as dividends; losses and credits, if any, realized by the Partnership would not pass through to Limited Partners to be used as deductions or credits.
Assuming the Partnership is treated as a partnership for Federal income tax purposes, an investor should note that partners are taxed based on distributive shares of profits, not on actual cash distributed. A Limited Partner may thus be taxed on funds not received by him.
It is impractical to comment on all aspects of Federal, state and local tax laws which may affect the tax consequences of participation by the Limited Partner in this venture. Moreover, the various statutory provisions, regulations and decisions upon which any tax discussion must be based are subject to change by interpretation in the courts and by legislative or administrative action, any of which could adversely affect the tax consequences of participation in this venture. Therefore, each prospective Limited Partner should satisfy himself as to the income and other tax consequences of his participation in the partnership by first obtaining advise from his own tax counsel.
Furthermore, while the General Partner will furnish each Limited Partner with the necessary information to enable him to file the Federal, state and local tax returns for which he may be liable, the preparation and filing of such returns will be the personal responsibility of each Limited Partner. If the Internal Revenue Service proposes any adjustment with respect to any item of Partnership income, gain, loss, deduction or credit, such adjustment will also be reflected in the individual return of each Limited Partner who will be liable for the payment of any resulting deficiency and, should he/she choose to do so, the cost of contesting deficiency.
The General Partner reserves the right for any reason whatsoever to pay to individual investors, persons rendering services to the Motion Picture and others an additional participation in profits solely from the General Partner’s share of profits, for any reason.
The ultimate issuer of these securities will be the Partnership to be formed. Accordingly, no financial statements are presently available. After the formation of the Partnership, and so long as the Partnership is exploiting any interest(s) in the Motion Picture, the General Partner will furnish to the Limited Partners annually a balance sheet and a statement of operations prepared by an independent public accountant, which need not be certified, and with such other financial statements as may be from time to time required by law. In addition, the Limited Partners will have the right to examine Partnership books if they so desire, during regular business hours and subject to reasonable prior written notice.

Additional Limited Partners may be admitted upon their contribution of cash and letters of credit to the Partnership, execution of an amended Schedule I, and the filing for record of an appropriate amendment to this Certificate.
The original Partners’ percentage interests in the capital of the Partnership as a result of their respective contributions shall be determined by the General Partner and set forth on Schedule I. Such original percentage interests shall be determined by reference to each Limited Partner’s proportionate share of total contributions by all Limited Partners (taking into account the percentage interest allocated to the General Partner(s). In the event of the original Limited Partners shall be appropriately reduced. Limited Partners shall not be required to make any additional contributions to th Partnership beyond those specified on Schedule I.
Each Limited Partner shall deposit with the General Partner(s) an irrevocable assignable letter of credit, in form and substance acceptable to the General Partner(s), issued by a bank acceptable to the General Partner(s), in an amount with respect to each Limited Partner as indicated opposite such Partner’s name on Schedule I hereto. This letter of credit, and any replacement letter of credit, shall be herein referred to as the “Letter of Credit”. Each Limited Partner shall deliver his or her Letter of Credit to the General Partner on or before the date specified on Schedule I. Failure of a Limited Partner to deposit his or her Letter of Credit or make his or her cash capital contributions as agreed shall, in the sole discretion of th General Partner, result in forfeiture of his or her entire interest and all funds previously contributed and, in addition, shall subject the Limited Partner to any remedies available, in law or equity, to the General Partner or Partnership.
The Letter of Credit delivered by each Limited Partner shall be effective and irrevocable from the date delivered through April 30, 200_. Each Limited Partner agrees to deliver to the General Partner(s) on or before April 1, 200_ and on or before each succeeding April 1, so long as the Partnership is in existence, a replacement Letter of Credit effective, assignable and irrevocable during the twelve-month period from May 1 through the following April 30 immediately following the April 1 by which deposit of such replacement Letter of Credit is required. If any Limited Partner fails so to deposit a replacement Letter of Credit, the General Partner shall, prior to the expiration of the then-effective Letter of Credit, issue a draft upon, or other demand for payment under, such Limited Partner’s Letter of Credit in an amount equal to the face value of such Letter of Credit. Any proceeds received from any Letter of Credit which is drawn upon shall be used in the Partnership business as the General Partner(s) determines.
