We want to make an English language film for two different audiences. While most films only have one audience, 'World's Luck' has two significant niche audiences built into its premise.
The first is Electronic Dance Music lovers. This audience makes up millions worldwide and comprises the much sought after 18-34 demographic. Importantly, Electronic Dance Music fans consisting of males and females in the target demo group.
The second audience comes from the political thriller aspect of ' World's Luck.' A massive worldwide audience, as well. This audience is consisting of highly intellectual and monetarily successful people between the ages of 26-65. It will especially be the case in Europe, where much of the action takes place. Success with this audience could also lead to award recognition, which will enhance the film even further.
We have an incredible group of people working to make this film happen. A group with more than 30 years of experience with the crowd of our leading target group, lovers of electronic dance music. We have access to the audience for our film. Our film project is based on collaboration and relationships with these people. The screenplay is written, and all rights are reserved.
