The groundbreaking film, "The Anatomy of a Great Deception" follows one man's search for truth while coping with the findings of his own 9/11 investigation. The film is in post-production and seeks $50,000 for promotion using the IndieGoGo platform.
Documentary filmmaker, David Hooper deals with the findings of his own investigation into several mysteries surrounding the controversies of the 9/11 official story. His commentary about the emotions involved in dealing with his findings, sets the film apart. The film is meant as a fascinating, yet gentle introduction into the controversies about 9/11.
The film has been completed but in order to finish the final production and execute their unique distribution plan, Hooper has turned to the crowdfunding platform, IndieGoGo to raise at least $50,000 dollars to execute the plan. "The film is being sound-engineered as we speak," stated businessman-turned filmmaker, David Hooper, who expects to have the film finalized on DVD in mid-July.
"The Anatomy of a Great Deception," which focuses much attention on the paradox of Building 7's collapse on 9/11, seeks to add to the 9/11 truth movement's voice, which seems to be gaining momentum. On June 2, 2014 the 24-member, 9/11 Consensus Panel - which includes physicists, chemists, engineers, commercial pilots, attorneys and lawyers announced three new studies confirming the controlled demolition of World Trade Center 7. The studies scientifically refute the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) claim that, for the first time in history, fire caused the sudden and complete collapse of a large, fire-protected, steel-framed building on 9/11.
MovingFlicks.com, a Detroit-based, independent-film studio and distribution house was formed to promote the film, for its September release. It will coincide with expected national media coverage of the 9/11 anniversary. The film will be released through conventional sales channels, including digital platforms. "But, it's our proprietary distribution plan that has big potential, " said the filmmaker, who, "hopes to capitalize on impulse buying habits by getting the film for sale in the checkout area of thousands of retailers in up to three Midwest cities to start." Depending on the campaign's level of success, the film will be introduced in Chicago, Detroit and/or Ann Arbor, MI, where filmmaker David Hooper has ties to each. If the three-city test is successful, the company plans to continue the release of the film in a city-by-city pattern, "Unless something happens to speed that up," adds finance chief, Anthony Sousa.
As the pre-release marketing period winds down, Moving Flicks plans to host a launch party in Chicago and/or Detroit that will include cocktails, a screening of the film and some live entertainment.
Moving Flicks hopes to make the launch party a rendezvous point for the 9/11 truth community and organizations like, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, a non-profit non-partisan organization of architects, engineers and affiliates dedicated to revealing facts about the complete destruction of all three World Trade Center high-rises on September 11, 2001.
"We've also pledged to donate to the Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund, which provides educational assistance to family members of victims of 9/11," according to Samantha Moreno, head of media relations for Moving Flicks. A dollar from each DVD sold will go to these organizations.
The funding landscape has changed for filmmakers since crowdfunding emerged as an option where fans can back a project by contributing as little as a few dollars. Those few dollars can add up if you have a loyal following, The most notable example is the Veronica Mars movie that had a limited run in March of this year. Fans of the show raised over $5 million dollars through crowdfunding to get a feature film made.
"The money sought for "The Anatomy of a Great Deception" will help keep the memory of 9/11 alive by giving the truth some help which it seems to need," finished Hooper. Donation levels start for as little as $5.00, which includes entry in drawing to walk the red carpet and attend the opening night screening. Donation levels at $25 include an autographed collector's edition DVD. And it is not too late to be a producer and appear in the credits, either. "For as little as $250, not only will you have tickets to the release party, but your name will be on the silver screen as a Assistant Producer," boasted Moreno. The gift packages reach $5000, which includes a cameo in the film and a home screening by the filmmaker.
