TELEVISION AND FILM

American Creative Dance is experimenting with the media of television and movies.  Though we are dedicated to creating our kind of art, we know that art can and does intersect sometimes with entertainment.  We also recognize that many people long for high quality entertainment.  We are willing to explore this intersection and to experiment in this area.

We hired a fine script writer to create the pilot for a television series.  We have shown that series to several cable channels, including HBO and Showtime.  Both of those organizations let us know that they think our work would be best placed on the major networks, as it would appeal to broader audiences than theirs.  We aspire to having our series on some network and need funding to be able to market it.

We also have a registered treatment for a feature length film.  We would like to see this develop fully as well.  Members of our organization have film experience and connections with fine film makers.  Here also funds would enable us to move this project forward.

Not the least of the value of these projects is the potential for generating revenue for American Creative Dance.  Currently, most of our income as a 501 c(3)  not-for-profit arts organization comes from contributions from the public.  We also have small amounts of revenue from ticket sales and sales of CDs.  We can continue in this way indefinitely, but we can also legally generate income from our activities.  Television and movies can be lucrative.  We are willing to have these projects produce money to the benefit of the rest of the vision.  And the projects are worthy in themselves.
