This is a list of Cosmos Production’s current projects. It is by no means complete. This list was created to show the depth and scope of our interests as well as our ability to cross genres and venues. It is our team’s intention to produce these and other similar projects, leading up to the formation of a four sound stage studio for low to medium budgeted projects. It is our belief that in the current studio system these demographics are under underestimated and under served. The current trend of focusing on “tent pole” films, which rely heavily on A list talent, has limited the industry’s ability to satisfy the audiences and the needs of the growing number of media venues. Their business practices have created vacuum, which no longer satisfies the audiences’ needs. Cosmos Productions will gratify the audiences by focusing on common sense budgets that feature both experienced actors with established fan bases, but who don’t fit in the the ever changing A list category, and talented newbies, who have yet to make a name for themselves

 

While most large studios are merely off shoots of huge conglomerates, which used them as tax right offs, Cosmos Productions combines both innovation and creativity with an acute business acumen. In doing so, we will create quality projects that have a ready made market in a cost effective manor, thereby increasing our profitability potential.

Their motto is: “We’ve got your back” What if, in their dedication to help, the founders of Operation Home Base stumble upon an international cover up; putting a target on their backs?

Until You Walk The Path, You Won’t Know Where it Goes will be chatting with spiritual councilor and intuitive, Cassandra Lynn Cantrell on July  15, .2015 at 1 pm eastern as we talk about how we can protect ourselves from the negativity others try to bring into our lives.

A 30 year veteran of meditation, Cassandra Cantrill honed her spiritual counseling skills over the last few years by working with literally thousands of people. A session with her is very much like simply sitting with someone and having a discussion. She is able to intuit energies around people, including divine information that assists someone in resolving issues. She believes that mindfulness brings conscious awareness of ourselves so that we can recognize the Love that is eternally present. Our recognition of Love allows us to chose out of the places of kindness, compassion and joy so that we can heal and be whole.

Until You Walk The Path, You Won’t Know Where it Goes will be chatting with veteran supporter and creator of Welcome Home Resumes , Joseph Corsino on June 24, .2015 at 4 pm eastern as he talks how his organization helps veterans prepare for the transition from military life to civilian.

 


 

 

In 2012, Joseph Corsino founded Welcome Home Resumes, a free service for veterans who needed assistance with their resumes. Since then, the service has evolved into a complete Interactive Employment Program which includes Interactive Resumes, Interactive Interview Training, Job Matching and top tier support both during and after the use of the program. Joe saw a need for a program that was different, one that wasn’t afraid to think outside the box to address the issue of veteran employment.

The Welcome Home Group provides an innovative employment program to any and all veterans, along with their immediate family members. This free program was developed from the ground up to make a difference in the way veterans transition into the civilian workforce. Through our extensive research with HR professionals, hiring managers and veterans alike, we have created an employment system like no other. The program is comprised of several “Common-Sense” modules that allow our team to work with the veteran to develop their Interactive Resume, work on their job interview skills and use our employer matching program. Our program also brings “Follow-Up” into the equation. We work with the veteran AND the employer to track the veterans progress in their new position for the first 6 months after starting a new job.

orses and Heroes is not about pointing fingers or creating a political firestorm. It is a documentary series, 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 does not involve drugs nor lying on a couch and spilling their guts to a therapist. 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. Horses and Heroes will give veterans and military personnel the information they need to find alternative healing solutions, which can help lower the suicide rate.

It will provide the dual benefit of also providing jobs. We will be hiring veterans already in the entertainment industry as well as opening the door for those who are looking for a new career.

It is a family friendly film, which is reminiscent of the films Ghost, and The Others as well as the original Dark Shadows TV series. The genre and the cast gives it an excellent chance of being a very profitable both with the domestic and foreign audiences.

Traditionally paranormal films remain one of the most popular genre, especially with the foreign markets. It crosses all ages and gender demographics, but it is a particular favorite with the 18-35 year old age bracket. Filming will be in the digital format, which will lower costs, while increasing production values and its profitability margin. Our cast includes very talented experienced actors with strong fan bases as well as upcoming newbies.

 

Our low production budget with innovative production values will produce a quality film that will have a low break-even point. The high P & A budget combined with the new digital marketing techniques will increase our exposure both in traditional venues as well in the new Internet and with the mobile devices. Never Can Say Good-bye will intertwine the best of the traditional with the best of the modern to create a film that has the right message at the right time and the ability to reach not only the specific target audience, but it will also attract the general audiences as well.

horses-and-heroes-logo     We are looking for corporations, who would like to cross brand with Horses and Heroes. One sponsor would receive more promotion, but we could give each of the 12 episodes has an individual sponsor. I have formatted the show so that each episode has two 10 second billboards and one 30 second bumper at the bottom of the hour that will be dedicated the sponsor. However, instead of just playing one of their ads, we would like to make target specific by showing how the sponsor helps veterans, military personnel, and their families. Horses and Heroes will attract the 18-35 year old demographic. However, since we will be sponsoring veterans from all conflicts not just the current, the demographic will be expanded to include those over 35. If you or if you know someone, who has the means and the will to do more than give lip service to supporting our veterans, please share our information with her, him or them. Let this Memorial Day be one where you make a difference for those who risked the most.
