"Seasoned history vlogger, Christina, takes a day to view an Arizona bordertown's most iconic and historic landmarks while waiting for her co-host to arrive. Losing subscribers and interest rapidly, her manager and subscribers encourage her to visit nearby historic places beforehand, like Tombstone's famous O.K. Corral, Fort Naco, and Fairbank's Ghost Town. Hoping this will increase her following, she goes live on YouTube alone. But when a presence follows her while on camera, she begins to wonder if this is all in her imagination or a giant set up by a deranged subscriber." COPYRIGHTED 2020 ©

Stuart's last film was shot on the same phone and has accumulated 5 awards in 3 months: FROM GRINGO TO GRAVE. The rest of SUBSCRIBE will be shot on a DSLR camera with top of the line lenses and lights.
Long-term goal: Use film to raise more capital for our 2nd feature film: DE GRINGO A LA TUMBA.
Short-term goals: Shoot a high-quality feature using a limited amount of cast and locations. Once completed, the feature will be submitted to top film festivals. Upon festival success, we plan to acquire distribution, and have the film on major VOD platforms.

For EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS: Film profits are generated in a multitude of ways including: winning in film festivals, the sale of the film to a distribution company or major studio, foreign sales, domestic sales, ticket sales, video-on-demand agreements, online streaming sales, merchandise, and more. Distribution can be sold to specific markets, such as North America (USA, Mexico and Canada) and then broken into other regional markets or sold on a worldwide scale. In most cases, the bulk of a film’s profits are realized when the film is sold to a film distributor. It is the distributor’s job to market, promote, and release to the general public.
A budget breakdown and expenses will be sent to executive producers.
