People have asked me what we need for Horses and Heroes. What they are really asking is how would helping us benefit them. The answer is very simple. We are offering excellent opportunities to embed products/services in a family friendly documentary that will appeal to a very diverse audience, especially those who are in the military and their families. The paperwork was completed to grandfather H & H into Section 181 of the Jobs Act, which gives investors a K-1 tax deduction equal to what they invest. Our connection with the cable channels make potentially very profitable.
Horses and Heroes is a documentary, which will help military personnel and veterans find a new way to cope with the physical and emotional challenges brought into their lives by war. Equine Therapy doesn’t not involve drugs nor lying on a couch and spilling their guts. What it does do is help them find new ways to see and react to their emotional triggers. It helps their bodies remember how it used to work. It can’t replace what was lost, but it can give them the confidence to see that they are more than the sum of their body parts.
Although any company who has a family friendly product would make an excellent sponsor, we are offering companies like USAA and New Day USA their specific target audience. Anheuser Busch, Verizon, ManTech, CSX, and Union Pacific would also greatly benefit from supporting Horses and Heroes. But we are very innovative with our placement and will be able to find ways to promote any family friendly product.
We are offering ten second acknowledging billboards at the open and close of the show as well as three thirty second show bumpers at the half hour marks. Additionally, sponsors logos in the form of banners will appear in the background, much like at sporting events. If the sponsor has promotional material, such as jackets, hats, mugs, etc, we can arrange for them to receive positive placement within the documentary. We will also be thanking the sponsor in the credits and have an active link on our website to their site.
Horses and Heroes will be formatted for cable networks, such as the Military Channel, other Discovery networks, History Channel, AMC, and A & E. We also have a foreign television distributor interested in presenting Horses and Heroes to their European networks. Our director, Larry Wilcox, has a strong connection to a distributor, who has connections with universities, colleges, and medical facilities. However, we will also be sponsoring a very limited theatrical release, which will act as fundraisers for veterans’ organizations such as Wounded Warrior Project, Military Warriors Support Foundation, Coming Home Project, and Operation Second Chance etc. Documentaries and films, which are shown in theatres and in film festivals, receive better network leasing contracts as well as greater DVD/download sales. In addition, the expenses connected to fund raising events would be considered a donation to the non-profit group and thereby they will be tax deductible.
The package would cost approximately the same as one national ad. However, we have broken the time into five segments the three 30 second bumpers and the two the 10 second billboards to make it affordable to smaller companies.
