THE GLADE FAMILY, WHOSE FATHER, TOM GLADE, A RETIRING POLICE COMMISSIONER WHO WANTS HIS TWO SONS TO PROUDLY CONTINUE THE FAMILY’S LONG LEGACY OF LAW ENFORCEMENT. BROTHERS COLIN AND MICHAEL'S PATHS, HOWEVER, ARE DIVERGING. THE YOUNGER COLIN SEEKS A JUST CAREER AND A FUTURE FAMILY; MICHAEL IS SPIRALING DOWN A TOXIC RABBIT HOLE OF CORRUPTION, DRUGS AND VIOLENCE, EVENTUALLY DRAWING CRISIS CONFLICT INTO ALL THEIR LIVES.

BROTHER’S BADGE PRODUCTIONS IS SEEKING $2,000,000 TO COMPLETE THE PRODUCTION OF THE CRIME DRAMA FEATURE FILM A BROTHER’S BADGE IN 2020. 

 

THE FILM HAS BEEN WRITTEN TO SUPPORT A LOW BUDGET WITH FEW LOCATIONS AND A LIMITED AMOUNT OF ROLES. THE MAJORITY OF THE FUNDS WILL BE SPENT ON TALENT. SINCE THE PROJECT WILL BE SHOT IN SAN ANTONIO, CREW AND EQUIPMENT CONNECTIONS AND DISCOUNTS WILL ALLOW THE REALIZED VALUE TO REACH CLOSER TO $2,000,000. 

 

BRYAN RAMIREZ (SANITARIUM, LINE OF DUTY) IS ATTACHED TO DIRECT AND PRODUCE, WHICH VIRTUALLY GUARANTEES AN AUDIENCE FOR THE FILM SINCE HIS LAST TWO FILMS WERE SOLD. LINE OF DUTY WAS RELEASED THEATRICALLY BY LIONSGATE. 

 

MITIGATED RISK WITH A PROVEN GENRE. FAMILY IS UNIVERSAL. NO MATTER THE CULTURE OR LANGUAGE EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS LOYALTY. FOR THIS REASON, CRIME DRAMAS ARE INHERENTLY APPEALING. 

 

CRIME FILMS PROVIDE SUPERIOR PROFIT MARGINS OVER OTHER GLOBALLY ATTRACTIVE GENRES SUCH AS ACTION, ADVENTURE, AND DRAMA, AS THEY CAN MAINTAIN HIGH PRODUCTION VALUE AT A FRACTION OF THE COST. IN FACT, 

 

MORE THAN EVER BEFORE, TODAY’S FILMS ARE ABLE TO EXPLOIT DVD, NEW MEDIA, VIDEO-ON-DEMAND AND DEVELOPING DISTRIBUTION OPPORTUNITIES AROUND THE WORLD INCREASING EARNING POTENTIAL WHILE REDUCING RISK TO INVESTORS. FOR THESE REASONS, THERE EXISTS A POTENTIAL FOR A TREMENDOUS RETURN ON INVESTMENT WITHIN A TWO-YEAR PERIOD ON “A BROTHER’S BADGE.
