What's New at MEC April 2017
Dear Friends & Associates:
I have some good news and some GOOD news.
The good news is we are done with the rough-cut of the show and are well into the fine-cut. We now have over 200 minutes complete with provocative main titles and end titles reflecting the donations 176 of you have made to date. These donations have made it possible for us to interview the following experts who are featured or appear in the show:
G. EDWARD GRIFFIN
PASTOR CHUCK BALDWIN
SHERIFF RICHARD MACK
But what’s the GOOD news? The GOOD news is MAINSTREAM has turned out so well, we have decided to expand it to a 4-part mini series. Given this, we will be able to release each part, one at a time, and build an audience bigger than any single release.
Thus, I am happy to announce, the first episode of MAINSTREAM – How Hollywood Movies and the New York Media Are Promoting the Globalist Agenda will be released on Flag Day, June 14th 2017.
This episode is entitled, THE HOLLYWOOD MOVIES – Part 1. We will follow this with the second episode entitled, THE HOLLYWOOD MOVIES – Part 2 and then THE NEW YORK MEDIA – Part 3 and finally, THE NEW YORK MEDIA - Part 4. Each episode will be between 45 and 50 minutes long, allowing for 10 to 15 minutes of advertising space or panel discussion.
According to YouTube statistics, the average viewing time of a video on the Internet is 5 minutes. Given this, it makes little sense to release a documentary film that is over 200 minutes. Most of the film will go unscreened. If, on the other hand, we release MAINSTREAM in parts, there is a much greater chance that most or all of the film will be screened.
If we do our job well as producers, and if you maintain donor support as we release each episode, we will be able to do two vital things. We will be able to increase the quality of each episode modestly, AND we will be able to build a larger audience for each episode. Then, after each pair of episodes is released, we will package them into DVD sets and release that. This is how audiences for smash hit series -- like HOUSE OF CARDS, BREAKING BAD, THE WALKING DEAD and BETTER CALL SAUL -- were built.
But why is MAINSTREAM so long anyway, you may ask? It’s long because Hollywood movies and the New York media are long and important subjects. They are important because the MAINSTREAM MEDIA affects every man, woman and child in the nation. The MAINSTREAM MEDIA even molds the culture and influences the politics of the nation. This is why it’s vital WE THE PEOPLE fully understand this subject and its ramifications.
I hope you will continue to support this project. As enticement I have placed the first 5 minutes of the finished movie here. You can also see the MAIN titles and the END titles here. If you screen the MAIN titles you will note several titles that say, in red, YOUR NAME HERE. This means we still have one Associate Producer screen credit and two Executive Producer screen credits available on the MAIN titles at these places. So, if you can afford it, here’s your chance to get a producer credit on an important motion picture for as little as $5,000 or $10,000, respectively. If you are of more modest means, you can also get an Associate Producer, Executive Producer, Production Associate or Production Assistant screen credit on the END titles. These are also very prominent spots, so take a look at them as well.
So to donate and be acknowledged with a screen credit, go to www.mainstreammedia.us/donate
In review, MAINSTREAM is inspired by the following six academic-quality books, books I personally chose out of about 50 top movie industry books. The books that inspired MAINSTREAM are thus:
HOLLYWOOD WARSMAINSTREAM is going to be our best and most important film ever.
THE MEDIA MONOPOLY
by Ben H. Bagdikian
AN EMPIRE OF THEIR OWN
by Neal Gabler
IT'S THE MEDIA, STUPID
Intro by Ralph Nader
THE HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS
by Ethan Mordden
HOLLYWOOD VS. AMERICA
by Michael Medved
Watch the fine-cut clip, imagine the film done, and I think you will see why. Be a part of this! Help us complete this project by donating. Where else can you get your name on a film featuring RON PAUL for as little as $100? Again, to donate go to www.MainstreamMedia.us/donate All of the details are there, including an itemization of the various screen credits you can get at specific donation levels. Also, at that URL you can review a synopsis of the movie or the full narration script, the production budget, two trailers and numerous excerpts from the experts we have interviewed.
So if you are excited about the prospect of delivering a blow to the “Media Trolls on the Bridge to Liberty,” help us get MAINSTREAM completed. The more of the production budget that is funded the quicker and better the production will turn out. Donate and share this Report with your family members, friends and associates.
MAINSTREAM, like our 7 previous films, will eventually be up on the Net as a free public service. Even though we joke that “MAINSTREAM is a film NOT coming to a theater near you,” this film COULD go viral, like one of our previous films, FIAT EMPIRE, featuring Ron Paul. In this case, your donations will make it possible for millions of people to not only find out why the MAINSTREAM MEDIA is promoting the Globalist Agenda -- but do something about it, do something about the indoctrination of our kids and the destruction of our culture. Yes, MAINSTREAM, the movie, will offer solutions, not just problems.
Again, if you would like to follow the progress of this production, please join the mailing list by going to www.mecfilms.com/subscribe_mec.htm.
I am pleased to inform you that MIDNIGHT RIDE - When Rogue Politicians Call for Martial Law is now complete. This is our 7th political film on the U.S. Constitution, the previous ones are on YouTube as a public service.
We will have an Internet Premiere for MIDNIGHT RIDE on Friday, 06 November 2015 from 8PM - 1AM midnight Eastern time (5PM - 10PM Pacific). If you want to be one of the websites that hosts the Premiere, please let me know as soon as possible.

SHERIFF RICHARD MACK
Thank you for helping us make this movie. We hope you enjoy it and feel it was a worthwhile endeavor. If you do, we hope you will tell family, friends and associates about the movie and/or send them a DVD.
A special thanks goes to my main producing partners, EDWIN VIEIRA, ELIAS ALIAS, RICHARD IOTT, BRIAN ROCKEY and CAROL SNYDER. You are all fantastic and it was a pleasure working with you.
Also, I want to thank OATH KEEPERS, BRAEBURN ENTERTAINMENT, the OK Membership and GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA for stepping up and helping make this important film inspired by EDWIN VIEIRA's latest book -- BY TYRANNY OUT OF NECESSITY: The Bastardy of Martial Law -- happen. Thanks Edwin for researching and writing another vital work.
Given the subject matter of MIDNIGHT RIDE, you can be assured this film will NOT appear in the MainStream Media. We go into the reasons why in the movie. Thus, if you want to see MIDNIGHT RIDE widely distributed, please either contribute to the marketing budget or help market the movie yourself.
You can help market the movie by having a Premiere in your local area. Such Premiere can be in your living room, at your local library or movie theater, or on your local public access TV channel. Just let me know and I will get you a master of the show in time for your premiere.
Watch the Trailer here:

Again, thank you for your belief in the project and your financial and spiritual support. Our research, and these films, proceed on the backs of concerned men and women who know we have the greatest country in history, but who seek to build an even "more perfect union".
TESLA NIGHT 2015
In July we completed another production of a Tesla event sponsored by the TESLA SCIENCE FOUNDATION. Enjoy the festivities at http://www.mecfilms.com/evolvefest or below:
YOU TUBE CHANNEL
Visit Matrix Entertainment's You Tube Channel at http://www.YouTube.com/OriginalIntentDoc. Most of our professional and public service documentaries are up there. As of 17 January 2015, the Channel has 6,115 subscribers and received 3,327,539 video views.
We have just added a whole bunch of new movies, including the first films made by James Jaeger in 1964 as Timber Lane Productions. See the section entitled NARRATIVE DRAMAS.
We recently completed a new draft of the screenplay, TESLA - The Poet of Electricity.
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.
We have taken this project to a number of studios all of which have reviewed the screenplay and recommended it for production pending the official attachment of various elements. So far Sarah Jessica Parker, Beau Bridges and Sam Elliot have expressed interest in being in the movie for the parts of Sarah Bernhardt, George Westinghouse and Mark Twain, respectvely.
We are currently looking for the sum of $75,000 to be used to hire a casting director and for packaging expenses. We feel if the correct talent is packaged, a studio will finance production of this movie. The packaging sum, plus a 100% return on that sum, will be returned to the active investor from the financed production budget of the motion picture.
Contact James Jaeger at 610-688-9212 or email@example.com for more information. Visit the official website at http://www.PoetOfElectricity.com to find out why now is the perfect time for a TESLA movie.
In August 2014, we completed 2 days of production and 3 days of post on EVOLVEFEST 2104. Shot in the hills of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania the Evolvefest is a Yoga & Music Freedom Festival. This film features the Tesla Science Foundation and the Luminaries band singing a song dedicated to Nikola Tesla.
See the film at http://www.mecfilms.com/evolvefest or below:
In June 2014, we completed 7 days of production and 11 days of post on PORCFEST 2104. Shot in the mountains of New Hampshire the Porcupine Freedom Festival is the fastest growing Libertarian movement in the United States. See the full film at http://www.mecfilms.com/porcfest or a short clip of the 6th day below:
CHATTERBAND - 8 CAMERA SHOOT
On 23 May 2014, Matrix Productions did a shoot of THE CHATTERBAND at TWENTY9 in Malvern. We had previously done a small test shoot at TWENTY9, but this recent shoot was an 8-camera shoot. If MOS cameras are included, this was an 11-camera shoot. The results of the shoot are at www.mecfilms.com/chatterband.
The Chatterband is the number one dance band in the Tri-state Area (PA, NJ, NY) and is founded and lead by Paul Martone. Their website is at www.Chatterband.com
If you need a band or event shot, contact us. Hint, hint Linkon Park and MUSE. firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-576-2001. Matrix Productions has experience doing multi-camera productions going to our first shoots of Tom Jones, Gregory Peck and Paul Williams at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

ON THE MAIN LINE
Our low-budget feature project, GOING OUT, has been re-written and renamed ON THE MAIN LINE. ON will be a black comedy about life on the wealthy, "blue-blood" Main Line outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Written and directed by James Jaeger, the 90-minute film will feature local acting talents, both professional and not.
Jaeger grew up in Devon, one of the dozen towns along the Main line and went to The Haverford School also one of the towns along the Main Line. ON THE MAIN LINE will feature the Devon Horse Show and other local places in the production.
ON is based on the short film entitled THE PICKUP, written and directed by James Jaeger, which successfully played to audiences in California.
Matrix Productions is looking for ten producing partners who will each contribute the sum of $25,000 for the production budget of the film, such anticipated to be a modest $250,000. If you are interested in participating in this project, you can read the screenplay here and contact us here.
Jaeger's previous feature, SNAPSHOT BLUES, premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, Mifed and AFM and has been screened and purchased by over 1 million people from around the world. Jaeger also won a Telly Award for his documentary, FIAT EMPIRE, starring Ron Paul, which was the #1 film on the Internet for a period of 4 months.
THE SPIRIT OF TESLA
Another production Matrix completed was a conference held by the Tesla Science Foundation at the New Yorker Hotel on 11 January 2014. This hotel was the last place Nikola Tesla lived before he passed away.
The conference was held and produced by Nikola Lonchar. Visit the Tesla Science Foundation for more information on Nikola Tesla and how you can attend or present at next year's conference. www.TeslaScienceFoundation.org

MOLON LABE - How the Second Amendment Guarantees America's Freedom -- staring RON PAUL, PAT BUCHANAN, ALEX JONES and G. EDWARD GRIFFIN -- is done.
Also featured are Stewart Rhodes, Pastor Chuck Baldwin, Larry Pratt, Jack Rooney, Edwin Vieira, Larken Rose, David R. Gillie, and Walter Reddy.
MOLON LABE has been the most widely watched of Jaeger's previous 5 documentaries and DVD sales have been equal to the sales on all five previous features combined.
And the reason for this is the film was better financed so better production values could be imparted to the finished product. Thanks for this goes to Oath Keepers, Braburn Entertainment, Matrix Entertainment and over 500 generous donors.
This feature-length documentary was inspired by Edwin Vieira's 2,300-page book, The Sword and Sovereignty, now available at Amazon.com. MOLON LABE will be our sixth film on the Constitution and you can still get DVDs of this and the five previous movies 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.
Watch a clip of the show at http://youtu.be/3nDqtj3kf-w or on the viewer below:
Again, we would like to acknowledge MATRIX ENTERTAINMENT's affiliated presenting organizations: OATH KEEPERS and BRAEBURN ENTERTAINMENT, LTD. Specifically, acknowledgement must go to Oath Keepers Membership, many Oath Keeper Chapters (listed in the film), Founder & ED, Stewart Rhodes, and publisher, Elias Alias -- all indispensable 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.
It should be noted that no one in the mainstream media has even mentioned MOLON LABE.
A final polish of ECOSPHERES 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 astronaut 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 huge 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 coincidence -- good ideas are always in the air. It does not matter; if audiences liked BREAKING BAD, they will like ECOSPHERES.
MULTIPLE CAMERA SHOOTS
Matrix Productions is gearing up to deliver high-quality, multiple-camera shoots, coast-to-coast and internationally. With the acquisition of our 12th, matched, high-def camera, coverage of sophisticated and low-light events are being offered for prices competitive with, or lower than, standard network TV.
Events such as major rock concerts, Broadway theatrical performances, political rallies, presidential conventions and NFL football games can be covered for a little as $100 per camera, per event-hour. James Jaeger worked for NFL Films in 1979. Contact an account executive at MEC for further information. 800-576-2001
POST DIGITAL GROUP

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.
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 Matrix 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.
