A: Now, Realm has launched a campaign to raise Steal Away’s $34.7 million production budget both via investment financing and corporate sponsorships. To achieve this, the for-profit company has partnered with 501(c)3 fiscal sponsor Fractured Atlas. According to forecasts by Nash Information Services, median gross revenues for Steal Away are projected to potentially reach $712 million across global theatrical, streaming, home video, television, and ancillary distribution platforms. Equity Investors are projected to receive a potential median ROI of 245%, with a potential high of 917%
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: “Realm believes that outstanding artists unable to procure a Hollywood agent should have the same opportunities as A-list artists,” says Stephen Ashley Blake, Realm’s founder and CEO. “Our production model disrupts Hollywood’s elitist practices by leveling the playing field.” The casting call for Steal Away immediately drew over 12,000 submissions for just 12 out of the movie’s 65 roles. Realm is currently holding auditions with both A-list artists and lesser known but outstanding actors.Activate Social Media:
