What's New at MEC November 2013
Dear Friends & Associates:
DEVON HORSE SHOW
It's done. If you're a horse lover, watch it at http://www.mecfilms.com/devon or below.
MOLON LABE is done. We had many comments and suggestions from the producers, experts and major donors that have helped us polish the film.
MOLON LABE - How the Second Amendment Guarantees America's Freedom features RON PAUL, PAT BUCHANAN, ALEX JONES and G. EDWARD GRIFFIN. Also featured are Stewart Rhodes, Pastor Chuck Baldwin, Larry Pratt, Jack Rooney, Edwin Vieira, Larken Rose, David R. Gillie, and Walter Reddy.
This feature-length documentary was inspired by Edwin Vieira's new 2,300-page book, The Sword and Sovereignty, available at Amazon.com. MOLON LABE will be our sixth film on the Constitution. You can get DVDs of the five previous ones at www.MoviePubs.net or watch them on YouTube.
Kris Chandler did the narration for MOLON LABE and the production design was done by Warren Jaeger. Production design included all of the major art elements, including the website, one-sheet, DVD box, DVD disc, DVD wrap, all title elements for the movie and the trailer. At only 17 years old, Warren is already in high demand by Hollywood studios and the handful of exclusive boutique firms that service them. To see some of Warren's work, go to the FLASH version of the MOLON LABE website at http://www.molon.us and the MOVIE PUBS site.
Even though MOLON LABE is done, we need your help to market it, thus an effort to raise an initial marketing budget is now underway. So important is the marketing budget to a movie, the major studios spend as much MAKING a movie as they do MARKETING it, and MORE when foreign advertising is considered. The reason: why make a movie if no one knows it exists. So PLEASE disseminate this report and donate what you can by going to http://www.molon.us/donate. If you like this movie and feel its message should get out -- we will plaster it all over the universe if you allocate funds to help us do so.
On 15 October, we sent out a PRESS RELEASE to 30,000 newspapers/TV networks/radio stations across the country announcing that the world premiere for MOLON LABE will be on 24 October 2013. See Release. We will send this Release out again on 22 October, two days before the Premiere. We are letting the "mass media" watch the film for free for a 4-hour window of time on a number of TV channels and selected websites including Gun Owners of America, InfoWars.com, ChuckBaldwinLive.com and the Oath Keepers site. Screening time is 8PM - 12 midnight EDT.
Simultaneously, MOLON LABE will appear at the Anthony Wayne Theater in Wayne, PA from 7PM - 9PM and a number of other theaters around the country. Pastor Chuck Baldwin, who appears in the film, will be running the show in several theaters in Kalispell and Walter Reddy will be running it in Connecticut. MOLON LABE will also play at the downtown Regal Cinema in LA. If the film is well received, it may be rolled out to additional theaters and venues.
You can watch the trailer for MOLON LABE below and also screen the feature at www.molon.us/premier on the 24th.
Lastly, we would like to acknowledge MATRIX ENTERTAINMENT's afiliated presenting organizations: OATH KEEPERS and BRAEBURN ENTERTAINMENT, LTD.
The Oath Keepers Membership, many Oath Keeper Chapters (listed in the film), Founder & ED, Stewart Rhodes, and publisher, Elias Alias, were all indispensible in getting MOLON LABE produced and to market. Our senior executive producer, Richard B. Iott, President of BRAEBURN ENTERTAINMENT, has contributed invaluable guidance and financial support for this movie, support that will make it possible for us to disseminate MOLON LABE to wider audiences. An accomplished and prolific executive, Richard Iott is well-known in Hollywood for producing many outstanding feature films, including BEAUTIFUL BOY, CAR JACKED, INSIGHT, DEAL and NEVER CRY WOLF. A member of Oath Keepers, Mr. Iott has served in the Ohio Military Reserve (OHMR) and is currently a colonel and the Deputy Commander of the OHMR.
A final polish of ECOSPEHERS has been completed and sent to our contact-executive at WARNER BROS. as a "first draft" screenplay. Conceived in 1985 as "MOONSTONE," the first draft of the story was submitted to Lindsay Doran, then VP Production, PARAMOUNT PICTURES. Ms. Doran encouraged development of the story into a screenplay which was completed around 1993 by James Jaeger and his staff at dNa DevelopMent, a division of Matrix Entertainment.
The premise of MOONSTONE, renamed ECOSPHERES, is very similar to BREAKING BAD, only ECOSPHERES takes place in outer space, ostensibly 500 years in the future.
Complete with a "Heisenberg" -- who heads up the Federated Nations at Capital City, Moon -- ECOSPHERES is a story of two, off-beat brothers, Gary and Gil Godard, who discover a way to make pure gold out of led using a "moonstone" given to them by their austranaut father.
Gary and Gill -- characters very similar to Jesse Pinkman and Walter White -- team up and purchase a large van to set up a mobile chemistry lab so they can "cook" gold and keep out of the clutches of the authorities. Soon their empire becomes so hugh they are literally able to purchase the entire Establishment of Earth. Does this sound like the BRAKING BAD theme? If it does, keep in mind ECOSPHERES was written in 1985 and the 8th draft of the screenplay was completed around 1995. BREAKING BAD premiered on January 20, 2008.
Maybe this is a coinsodence -- good ideas are always in the air. It does not matter; if audiences liked BREAKING BAD, they will like ECOSPHERES.
VARIOUS FILMS IN POST-PRODUCTION
We have completed principal photography on the following new documentaries:
THE DEVON HORSE SHOW
THE DIVINE HAND ENSEMBLE

TESLA - THE POET OF ELECTRICITY
James Jaeger met with a special advisory board and the board of directors of the Tesla Science Foundation on 24 September and 03 October 2010, respectively, to go over the screenplay and explain what challenges have been faced in the research, writing and development-financing of this important motion picture about the life of Nikola Tesla. The Tesla Science Foundation, under the leadership of president Nikola Lonchar and chairman David Vuich, has quickly grown to be the largest Tesla association in the United States.
For more information on TESLA - The Poet of Electricity, visit the official site at www.PoetOfElectricity.com.
Our new low-budget feature screenplay, GOING OUT, has just completed another draft. GOING OUT is based on the short film entitled THE PICKUP, written and directed by James Jaeger, which successfully played to audiences in California. We are looking for a producing partner for this feature slated to be shot around the Main Line and Valley Forge area Spring 2011. If you are interested in participating on this project, you can read the screenplay here, the budget here and contact us here.
TESLA - The Poet of Electricity has undergone many years of research and writing and we believe it's the most authoritative and interesting version of Nikola Tesla's incredible life to date.
As of Spring 2009, we have taken this project to three major studios all of which have reviewed the screenplay and recommended it for production pending the official attachment of a suitable name director. We have also taken this project to a number of name directors who have reviewed the screenplay and indicated their interest in participating in this project when it is set up at a studio. Three name acting talents are unofficially attached. A preliminary budget is available. If you represent a suitable director, studio or major production company that is interested in this project, please contact James Jaeger or Carol Snyder at 310/499-7110 or email@example.com. If you are interested in playing the part of Nikola Tesla (or any of the other supporting roles) please send your picture and resume to Matrixx Productions, P.O. Box 5155, Beverly Hills, CA 90210, Attention: Carol Snyder.
If we are unable to get TESLA funded by an American studio, we will submit the project to non-US studios or fund it in the private capital markets.
For more information on the TESLA project, see http://www.PoetOfElectricity.com
FIAT EMPIRE now has a new website at www.FiatEmpire.org
FIAT EMPIRE, written and directed by James Jaeger, has been screened by about five million people around the world and hit number one on Google Video four times. It remains one of the top films on the Internet and garnered a Telly Award in 2006.
When we produced FIAT EMPIRE, we had no idea that one of our experts would become a presidential candidate, but indeed such transpired with RON PAUL. Since Dr. Paul's announcement, his popularity has been steadily growing and he as founded a populist movement known as the Ron Paul Revolution. Many acknowledge that the RON PAUL REVOLUTION triggered the TEA PARTIES that are now taking place across the nation.
MEC granted a free license to a volunteer network of citizens to copy and disseminate a special RON PAUL Volunteer Edition of FIAT EMPIRE and this has been making its rounds at conferences, rallies and on public access networks across America. To get quantities of this DVD, go to http://www.fiatempire.com/screener/index2.html and to get the Director's Cut of FIAT EMPIRE with 120-minutes of additional interviews of Ron Paul, Edwin Vieira, G. Edward Griffin and Ted Baehr, go to http://www.FiatEmpire.com/screener
FIAT EMPIRE was inspired by the book, "The Creature From Jekyll Island" by well-known author and FREEDOM FORCE founder, G. EDWARD GRIFFIN and produced by attorney William L. Van Alen, Jr. FIAT EMPIRE, with a running time of about 1-hour, is a co-production between Matrixx Productions and Cornerstone Entertainment. In addition to interviews by G. Edward Griffin and Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas), FIAT EMPIRE features interviews with MOVIEGUIDE Founder, DR. TED BAEHR and constitutional attorney, EDWIN VIEIRA (4 degrees from Harvard). FIAT EMPIRE was written and directed by Hollywood filmmaker, James Jaeger, and narrated by Kris Chandler. Associate producers are Ted Pollard, author and former Commissioner of Radnor Township and James E. Ewart, well-known author of MONEY. Lastly, the music for FIAT EMPIRE was written by Jack Rooney.
