My name is Georg Nikoloff. I am the managing director of the film developing & production network company Perspective Pictures Ltd. I studied at the University of Theatre and Film Drama Max Reinhardt Seminar in Vienna. Subjects studied included film, screen writing, directing and acting for the camera. I have worked in the Austrian, German, Swedish and British theatre, film and TV industry for fifteen years. In the UK I have featured in movies, including "Theory of Everything", "X-Men: First Class" and "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit", as well in TV series such as BBC's "Spooks", "Wallender" and "Casuality".

Perspective Pictures Ltd. is a new company based in Harpenden UK. We specialise in project development and production of film, music videos and commercials. The purpose of our company is to make film-production easy and affordable for genuinely creative people with great ideas, who would not usually have the funds available to take the traditional route of employing the big studios. We do this by gathering the huge amount of talent out there onto one central database, and providing the people with ideas with just the contacts they need for their projects, thus they only pay for the expertise or assistance they need rather than paying the huge costs the big studios charge, much of which is unnecessary. Our long-term career goal is to establish a strong film development&production network of talent, businesses and property owners. This could be anything from industry-specific talents such as freelance film directors, actors, musicians, photographers and unique filming locations owners, to less obvious, such as craftsmen, caterers, electricians etc. I'm pleased to say that we already have many individuals, companies and filming locations on our database.
In order to mark the start of our company, we developed our first short film project "In Plain Sight", which we plan to film in July of this year. "In Plain Sight" is a 30 minute short film about people's troubled lives following the finacial crisis in 2008. Following the collapse of the finacial services sector, many people had their working hours cut, lost their jobs, or some took more drastic personal measures. The main characters of the film are three ordinary people, working and paying taxes, who decide to seek private justice against the banks. The characters feel they have been pushed to their knees by the finacial system and so, they decide to transform themselfs into elaborate con artists and take from the banks what they beleave to be their well-deserved bonuses I.e. £10,000,000. Overall, the film is based on real events that has been altered and developed to a fictional crime-drama-comedy whith a cynical twist.
We have nearly all of our filming locations in place and our crew is assembled to start filming. The production costs for our film are approximately (£40,000). It is for this reason that we are writing to you to kindly ask you to invest in our company and project in order to help us to reach this figure.
We believe that this would be a great opportunity for your company and all sides involved to expand its marketing and branding into new industries which would create positive public relations perceptions. Additionally, your support would signal your commitment to grass roots businesses starting out. Our production team has developed a packaging strategy to ensure that the film is shown at film festivals and competitions, TV and multimedia channels which will also benefit your company as a result of investing in our company and project.
We believe we have a great vision for our company, helping other independent talent, businesses and charities. By making and producing the short film "In Plain Sight", we would like to prove that our film development&production network company has the ability and resources to create exciting and appealing entertaiment and advertising projects.
We do hope you will come along with us on this exciting journey, and be a part of what we do for many years to come.
