*Though this is Sequels’ offering terms, there is no guarantee that Calculated Sequels will return any portion of the investment, or reach profitability.
Calculated’s powerful novel series on which the CALCULATED film franchise is based is a present-day action-adventure thriller. The series includes four novels in all. The first three, Calculated, Simulated, and Activated, are all available now wherever books are sold. The fourth installment, Liberated, is slated for release summer 2023.
Josephine Rivers is a calculating prodigy with a nearly supernatural ability to look at the world through a purely mathematical lens, even at times predicting the future. After a betrayal by her own family when she’s only 15, she’s kidnapped and taken to China by the sinister Maxima, known as “Madame,” who forces her to use her gift to increase her fortune.
This marks the beginning of our hero’s arduous journey, which sees her moved around Shanghai’s criminal underground as others exploit her gift. Her only close company is older captive Hong Rui, nicknamed “Red,” whose wisdom and support change how she views her own power and teaches her what she needs to survive. Now she’s 17 and working for a wealthy man whose captivating son Kai starts to chip away at her emotional defenses.
She has the fate of the world in her hands, thanks to her unique gifts, but she also craves vengeance against those who’ve wronged her. Can she save the world from a financial collapse and also bring her enemies down? And can she trust Kai enough to let him into her heart?
“An intense and wonderfully complex thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat and turning pages!”
—Jessica Day George, NYT bestselling author of SILVER IN THE BLOOD and the TWELVE DANCING PRINCESSES series
“Calculated is smart with plenty of page-turning action and a brave heroine who is deeply relatable. The timely subject matter is heart-wrenching even as it inspires us to use our gifts to make a difference in the world. Twisty and original, this story will keep readers guessing and hoping to its pulse-pounding end!”
—Lorie Langdon, best-selling author of DOON and OLIVIA TWIST
Jo Rivers, safely back in Seattle, asks the same question daily – how does a math genius go from taking down international criminals and saving the world economy to living a normal teenage life? The only answer she can come up with is—she doesn’t.
With an overprotective father on her back and Kai on the other side of the world, Jo accepts an offer from Prodigy Stealth Solutions (PSS,) who may have found a way to get her gift back. Using a newly developed technology, PSS tries a simulation process on Jo to restore her abilities, but during the attempt, PSS is hacked and a blacklist file containing some of PSS’s most sensitive secrets is stolen. Meanwhile, a mysterious caller who knows more than he should delivers a warning to Jo about Kai, who then goes missing.
Despite her father’s concerns, Jo sets off on a risky trip to Tunisia with a PSS team of teen prodigies to find an urgently needed solution for PSS and locate Kai. All the while, Jo has to trust the mysterious informant who, frighteningly, is like no one she has ever met before.
“You know how you always have suspicions with sequels? Well, don't fret. Because somehow, Simulated was better than Calculated. I know! Who thought that could be possible? The suspense, plot twists, and action in this book will not leave you disappointed...only wanting more!”
—Drew Taylor, Writer. Reader. Reviewer.
"All of the Mission Impossible action you could hope for, paired with a love triangle that rivals the intensity of Twilight's. Be prepared to choose sides and hold on tight. You're in for one wild ride."
—Chelsea Bobulski, author of The Wood and Remember Me
“Brilliantly crafted, this technological thriller delivers punch after punch of heart-pounding action. The fearless heroine and two equally intriguing love interests had me flying through the pages. I’m in love with this series!”
—Lorie Langdon, best-selling author of the Disney Villains Happily Never After Series
After her exploits in Tunisia, Jo Rivers knows she’ll never lead a normal life. She also can’t move on until she grasps the unexpected evolution of her mathematical gift and confronts her unresolved feelings after meeting Noble. With Kai undercover, Noble is the only one who has the answers Jo needs. There’s just one small problem: Noble has vanished, leaving only a coded message in the stars.
When Rafael, a friend from Jo’s days in China, goes missing, it coincides with a new PSS assignment involving a potentially catastrophic satellite breakdown. Jo suspects something more sinister is at play and has no choice but to track down Noble, who may be her only hope to find Rafael and prevent global chaos.
Traveling to the perilous Arctic of Finland, Jo and her band of prodigies team up with unlikely allies from her past to find out what or who is interfering with the satellites— before it’s too late. Trusting her gift, Jo follows a path of numbers that light the way…which leads to answers she didn't predict.
"Where do I start.. I literally could not put this book down. My kids and I have been reading this as our family read a loud and they're begging me to just finish the book tonight. This book keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time. It is Mission Impossible meets, Hunger Games, meets the Godfather. So good we laughed and almost cried and definitely each of us has yelled out loud at the fictional characters who don't feel fictional at all. Gosh everyone needs to read this series."
—Brooke, Goodreads reviewer
"Throughout this series, I have been impressed by McBee’s storytelling, particularly in her ability to raise emotional and physical stakes in each installment. Each book stands alone in terms of stellar plotting, while also building a series arc - another rare feat of storytelling. And I can’t say much for fear or spoiling the outstanding ending, but I can say this: I am dying to hear there are more installments planned in this series!"
"If I could rate this ten stars I would!”
—Megan, Goodreads Reviewer
Our business plan is based on our principals' highly sophisticated proven method for securing major Hollywood players. Over the past 30+ years our principals have provided business, funding and distribution services for 23 studio-released motion pictures. They have built up strong relationships with leaders in the entertainment film insurance and banking industry. Based on their depth of experience, we are confident that we will we enlist the work of A-list screenwriters, directors and actors. We also expect to engage licenses with the world’s leading distributors who will connect us to the global market of movie and series binge-watchers, now numbering over 4 Billion. This is your opportunity to be part of a global film enterprise. It's very possible this may be the first raise on an equity crowdfunding platform to open up to the general public the opportunity to invest in the development fund for what could be a major-studio released, insured, bank financed*, globally distributed motion picture franchise (*bank financing has not been secured yet).
You are invited to share in providing the Calculated Sequels’ $15 million development funding ($5 million per picture). A bank’s entertainment department will provide each picture’s estimated $60 million production budget, totaling $180 million.
This structure provides you 110% of your investment from Calculated Sequels’ production financing BEFORE production begins. (You will receive this 110% preferred return in thirds, one-third each time one of the three pictures bank-financed production funding is successfully acquired).
In addition, you will receive your proportional share of 50% of all Calculated Sequels development company's 50% share of the global earnings from every source.
ALL OF THESE TIMES AND AMOUNTS ARE FORECASTS. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO GUARANTEE THAT THESE ARE ACCURATE OR INDEED WILL EVER OCCUR.
*Ann Peacock, who has been contracted to write Calculated, has a right of first negotiation with respect to the sequels and has verbally indicated to our Manager that she would be interested in writing the screenplay for Simulated, although she is not officially contracted to do so at this point and may not be available to do so in the future.
John has provided development and financing planning and execution in every aspect for dozens of motion pictures, television network series and specials, with combined production costs of over $470 million and global rights earnings exceeding $4 billion.
There are dozens of films John Lee has worked on. These are motion pictures you have heard of before, like The Terminator, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, and The Nutty Professor.
John Lee has provided business, global distribution and financing for motion pictures released through Universal, Paramount, Sony, Disney, Warner Bros., HBO and many others.
John has successfully led the vision, launch and/or expansion of five entertainment and media entities, including Impression delivery Corporation that was subsequently acquired by CapCities, and Entertainment Business Group purchased by the Gillen Group.
John's Grandmother was an avid reader, lighting a fire in him to seek for and create audience-overwhelming stories.
John's early career started as a systems analyst then consultant within the Business Systems Division of the NCR corporation by day, while in the evenings writing scripts and stories, and studying entertainment's creative and business craft. John co- founded the highly successful San Diego Repertory Theatre, for which he provided business planning, funding, taught and directed. He executive produced and partially funded his first motion picture, Where's Willy? in 1976, doing many things contrary to his better business judgment.It was a clarifying learning experience.
This led John into international motion picture sales as Controller and then Business Affairs Vice President for global motion picture sales company Howard Goldfarb Distribution. Subsequently, in the same position for Heart Entertainment, he directed the distribution and funding of in-house and client projects and helped measure the value of their pictures' rights and plan their optimal global rights licensing and sales.
Though participating throughout his career in the business and creative aspects of motion picture and television productions, John also led four new-media companies including the direct broadcast satellite entity Impression Delivery Corporation (acquired by CapCities), and the ad sales units of TimesMirror Cable Television (acquired by Cox Communications).
In 1996, John joined the faculty of BYU's Film School, established and taught their Business of Film curricula, leading him to author The Producer's Business Handbook. This book is used by film and business schools the world over, is a standard professional media reference, a best seller in its obscure category, now in its fourth edition published by Focal Press and co-branded by AFM. John has also mentored 27 film students in their productions.
The book continues to benefit many in understanding the hybrid demands of global distribution and finance, and has brought him, as he likes to say, "more recognition, speaking engagements and enjoyable experiences than I deserve."
In 1999 John co-founded and was CEO of Entertainment Business Group, providing motion picture global finance, distribution and related business services to independent producers and industry entities, until The Gillen Group's acquisition.
In 2004, John became the co-founder and CEO of iCommunication Dynamics, and i.TV, Internet steaming television technology entities, eventually selling its majority interest, as well as separately its i.TV concept and domain, which became a top 100 iPhone and iPad application.
In 2008, John became Dean of India's high-tech entertainment and media college, Whistling Woods International, contributing to their expansion, attaining top ten global status, and bringing India its first Media and Entertainment MBA in partnership with Manipal University.
In 2011, John became Managing Director of Entertainment Strategy, where he directed the development, global distribution, funding and oversight of in-house and client entertainment projects.
In 2018, John’s Simple Little Stories co-ventured with Jason Brents’ Lady of the Lake Studios together with their China distribution relationships, forming OneDoor Studios, each partner company contributing three global, wide-audience projects, three of which are also franchise projects. Shortly thereafter OneDoor Studios brought in their crucial third full-partner, writer, director, editor, cinematographer Stephen Wollwerth, through his 3Gates Films.
John, Jason and Stephen now direct OneDoor Studios, currently developing nearly a dozen independent feature motion pictures and series, while expanding their global sales capacities.
John continues to story-search, write, surf, help his wife, Darylann, in her women and children humanitarian work, and together they labor in their most joyous production...their children, grandchildren and extended family.
Chiefly through his 3Gates Films, Stephen became a polished producer, known as a Renaissance Man through the many projects which he produced and contributed to as a producer, writer, director, director of photography, editor - and even an FAA licensed drone pilot in motion picture, television and live event production. Stephen has established multi-cam streaming systems, and has served as a media broadcasting facility director.
Stephen started 3Gates Films in 2010 as designer, engineer, builder and cinematographer of the first aerial platforms that opened the liberating era of drones. Stephen’s innovative breakthrough aerial systems were featured in Scientific American magazine and many other publications and television programs. For a multi-million-dollar Fox Sports television commercial, Stephen became the first person to fly a cinema camera from a Blackmagic Design on a RC platform. He currently holds multiple FAA certifications, including part 107.39 for flights over people, a certification held today by only 18 individuals in the United States.
Stephen was the director of photography and editor on the 8.4/10 IMDB rated 2020 Film Hope for the Holidays released on Amazon Prime Video. He was also director of photography and editor for the 13th season of a PBS docu-series entitled Healing Quest. Stephen’s stock footage has been sold primarily for commercials thousands of times to companies worldwide. His footage has been purchased by National Geographic, Valvoline, Mahindra Tractors, Cenovas Energy, Spike TV, and hundreds of other companies.
In 2019 Stephen amassed a quarter of a million followers on TikTok with tens of millions of views of videos which told stories of miracles in people’s lives. Stephen’s reputation as a world class editor is significantly enabled by his substantial production of live, multi-camera concerts, and his degree in music performance, with a minor in voice.
Stephen speaks Mandarin Chinese with a level of fluency from his 2 years living in Kunming and Xian, China. He is also an instrument rated private pilot, is fascinated with aviation, has continuing electrical engineering projects as a hobby, is an extreme mountain biker and is a father of three sons and one daughter.
In 2015, Jason began to lay the foundation of the mini-studio which would eventually become OneDoor Studios. He astutely applied his lifetime of studying and acquiring great world literature, researching and becoming deeply oriented in the business of global motion picture and series development, production, financing and distribution, as well as engaging relationships with bright key-entertainment industry players.
In July 2018, Jason founded OneDoor Studios with his friend and partner John Lee; they were joined a year later by their friend and third partner Stephen Wollwerth. Since then Jason has been developing IP for the company, setting up and closing development financing, and setting up OneDoor Studio Entertainment Properties, which may become the first entertainment industry Series Regulation A+ development funding platform. As OneDoor’s President, Jason continues to oversee all of its entities, developing their in-house story properties and connecting OneDoor Studios with its various production partners, which include his and OneDoor’s global community of film industry professionals.
Along with continuing to develop industry partnerships, Jason leads OneDoor’s public development funding, bank production financing and expanding the partners’ overall vision of becoming a mini-studio.
Jason began his career as an educator in 2001 teaching in the Bay Area, CA.
Jason developed his entrepreneurial skills in 2005 when he launched a real estate development company, flipping real estate properties on the Big Island. This experience in real estate development helped to prepare him for the similarly financed film industry. In 2009 Jason moved his family to China to teach an international school, instructing some of China’s top international students from over 20 countries in history, government, philosophy, and film-making.
While in China he continued to mine many cultures for rich stories worthy to be developed into successful global motion pictures and series.
Jason speaks Mandarin Chinese with an intermediate level of fluency from his 6 years living in Tianjin, China. He continues to enjoy great literature, backpacking, snow skiing, cliff diving with his wife and five children in the High Sierras of California.

OneDoor Studios Entertainment Properties Operating Agreement [add link]
Series Calculated Sequels Series Agreement [add link]
Calculated Sequels exclusively develops the young adult Calculated book series into a wide-audience global motion picture franchise for distribution by major global studios, distributors and streaming systems.
We want to see the Calculated franchise become one of the next global YA motion picture breakouts like the HUNGER GAMES and DIVERGENT franchises. We aim to see each of its major motion pictures hit blockbuster levels in global box office earnings, inspiring a subsequent streaming series. These objectives are forward looking, cannot be guaranteed, and may never be realized.
Given the Company’s limited operating history, the Company cannot reliably estimate how much revenue it will receive in the future, if any.
OneDoor Studios Entertainment Properties LLC (the “Company”) was formed as a series limited liability company in the State of Delaware in December 2021. One Door Studios LLC (“1DS LLC”) is the sole manager of the Company. The Company is a series LLC which will house future “series” of the Company for each film as they are being formed. Currently, the Company has three registered series—Series Calculated Sequels, our first series (and the series to which funds raised in this Offering will be directed), Series Messiah and Series Cyrus—with more anticipated to come. Each series will maintain its own books and records and, as of December 31, 2021, none have engaged in any inter-company transactions or any other activity. The financials presented are reflective of the balances of the Company and its underlying series LLC as of December 31, 2021.
1) A film franchise is based on a top-rated novel series, released by a leading publisher on Amazon.
2) 1st tranche 110% early preferred return on investment before production begins (investment not guaranteed).
3) 2nd tranche: 50% of the development company's ongoing profits (investment not guaranteed).
4) A $15MM total development fund for 3 motion pictures. We intend to use bank-financed production funding at $60MM for each motion picture ($180 million total).
5) A team that has worked on 23 studio-released movies and series earning over $4 billion in revenue.
6) A team with studio relationships including Sony, Universal, Warner Bros, Disney, Paramount/CBS and Lionsgate.
7) This offering follows the successful $2 million Regulation Crowdfunding (Reg CF) raise on WeFunder of the Calculated Movie (a separate company and offering) and nearly $1 million Reg CF raise for the Calculated Sequels (the same company, but a different offering from this Regulation A+ (Reg A) offering).
Our company was organized in December 2021 and has limited operations upon which prospective investors may base an evaluation of its performance.
Revenues & Gross Margin. For the period ended December 31, 2021, the Company had revenues of $0. Our gross margin was 0%.
Assets. As of December 31, 2021, the Company had total assets of $0, including $0 in cash.
Net Income. The Company has had net income of $0 for 2021.
Liabilities. The Company's liabilities totaled $0 for 2021.
After the conclusion of this Offering, should we hit our minimum funding target, our projected runway is 10 months before we need to raise further capital.
We plan to use the proceeds as set forth under "Use of Proceeds" in our Offering Circular. We don’t have any other sources of capital in the immediate future.
We will likely require additional financing in excess of the proceeds from the Offering in order to perform operations over the lifetime of the Company. We plan to raise capital in 3 months. Except as otherwise described in this Form C, we do not have additional sources of capital other than the proceeds from the offering. Because of the complexities and uncertainties in establishing a new business strategy, it is not possible to adequately project whether the proceeds of this offering will be sufficient to enable us to implement our strategy. This complexity and uncertainty will be increased if less than the maximum amount of securities offered in this offering is sold. The Company intends to raise additional capital in the future from investors. Although capital may be available for early-stage companies, there is no guarantee that the Company will receive any investments from investors.
OneDoor Studios Entertainment Properties LLC Series Calculated Sequels cash in hand is $0, as of April 2022. Over the last three months, revenues have averaged $0/month, cost of goods sold has averaged $0/month, and operational expenses have averaged $0/month, for an average burn rate of $0 per month. Our intent is to be profitable in 36 months.
Last month, we closed an offering of Series Calculated Sequels securities conducted pursuant to Regulation CF, the net proceeds of which were approximately $895,338. Other than the proceeds and expenses associated with that offering, we have not had any material changes in our finances or operations since the period our audited financial statements cover. Series Calculated Sequels is a new series of the Company, so its financial history is brand new as well.
Over the next 3-6 months, revenues will be $0. The development, production, and distribution of a global studio released motion picture has a fairly predictable timeline for the creative and business elements involved. Development begins with the attachment of an A-list screenwriter to the project. We project ~18 months to having a studio-ready script. At ~22 months we project that our bank finances for production will become available, enabling our first tranche preferred return to investors of principle investment plus 10-25% interest. At ~38 months the picture will be released to the global marketplace, at which time we expect it will be profitable. For expenses, we budget about $300k for overhead, $700k for scripting (which takes most of the 38 months...36 months let's say), and then during the last 2 months we spend $1.4 million on the 10% down payments to attach director and lead cast, which enables us to back the contracts into our fully collateralized bank line of credit. We have 3 top entertainment banks competing for our business presently, but there are no agreements currently in place.
We estimate our expenses will be as follows:
-Literary rights, motion picture options, and writing fees $1,800,000 (25%)
-Director and actor production retainers $3,816,000 (53%)
-Production manager and casting director fees $462,000 (6%)
-Marketing and distribution expenses $354,000 (5%)
-Development talent and professional fees $300,000 (4%)
-General overhead $108,000 (2%)
-Operating reserve $144,000 (2%)
-Fees and Expenses $216,000 (3%)
Total Proceeds $7,200,000 (100%)
As explained above, the film industry is similar to the real estate industry in its transactional nature. During the development of the property, it is not profitable, but when the property is released to the market after ~38 months of development, we are profitable. In raising all the development capital we need to fully develop the property, we enable the bank-financing and subsequent distribution of the motion picture or series.
Our company has agreed to cover overhead capital from our manager, OneDoor Studios LLC, (raised through the initial Calculated offering) that sustains our current short-term burn, and we have several other offerings coming out during 2022 which will be similarly afford the company overhead capital.
Any projections in the above narrative are forward-looking and not guaranteed.

Living vicariously through entrepreneurs as they build their businesses. Hoping to learn a few things a long the way.
This team is amazing. They have the most fun updates that they've shared with the calculated and calculated sequel investor community. I always look forward to them. Being a part of this group has enriched my somewhat boring life. I've enjoyed reading calculated and look forward to reading the sequels.
I am investing in the 'Calculated' sequels because they are riveting, "can't put it down" written works. They weave an intriguing tale about characters that are caught in the intricate workings of an underground industry. Although aimed at the YA reader, as an avid adult reader I found myself engaged in the exploitation story of vulnerable people (like main character, Jo), who appear to be trapped in a life they did not expect or deserve. I am most impressed with the One Door Studios team of Steven, John, and Jay. These are men of integrity and faith. They are intensely committed to their mission - to transform McBee's novels into compelling movies. Movies that will impact generations. Nova McBee, One Door Studios, and famed screenwriter Ann Peacock have accepted this challenge. And, with God continuing to lead them and blessing their efforts, I am excited to see what they produce.

Knowing Jay was the topper, but my wife and I are reading the books...well she blew through them and loved them all which is hard to do with her so knowing how much she loved the books and how fast she read through them was enough for me to invest. If we had more we'd invest more. I'm a slow reader but will get through all three soon. We also have them on audio books so if we travel they're great to listen to on the road. The movies will be epic. I can't wait to see them on the screen...and possibly work on the crew in some capacity since I've worked in film, TV and commercials in the past...just a thought when hiring crew comes up. If you were to shoot any scenes in Sacramento we have lots of locations and lots of talented crew up here...just sayin'!

I invested in Calculated and wanted to invest more. The books are fantastic and I think the movies will be great. I also love the way you keep investors informed on what is happening with the movies.
...new to Wefunder - I've been interested in this type of investing for quite some time, but just never knew how to get started
First off, I love the story... but secondarily to that, I really enjoy your updates and the way you connect with your investor community. I kinda already feel like I've gotten my money's worth from this investment - anything else at this point is just a bonus.
We believe in Nova and her vision for the series.

I am happy to support innovative causes that I feel can be a positive impact in peoples lives.
I love the book’s story line. They have action and suspense. Hardship and hope. Tenacity through and through for the main character. I also really like that the movie series team supports the battle against human trafficking and they are savvy business men with a solid record and plan for success.
I am a retired Navy veteran and father of two grown boys and I am so happy I can invest in companies now
Love the books and waiting for the first movie
I am investing in the franchise because I enjoy the story and believe in the production team. The proven track record of Stephen, John, and Jason is enough to make me want to be a part of this. However one of the really cool things about this opportunity is, I and the other investors are helping to make dreams come true for Nova and the Onedoor Studios crew. Onedoor and Nova are seeing their ideas become something they can share with the world. I am also in the industry and I know what it takes to make all this come together. The countless hours, meetings, the emotional rollercoaster, the chasing money, and the negotiations, and the sacrifices you three have to go through to make this happen. I am a solid loyal fan of Onedoor Studios. As long as you offer opportunities for investing in other projects I will be there doing my little part. I use my play money to invest a little in each of several different productions, but this one is my favorite and this one brings me the most joy. I appreciate and look forward to the updates. Your business model is amazing and I am sure others will copy you along the way. Wishing this team to include Nova much success and smooth sailing through the process. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for this opportunity.
A Veteran, making contributions on exciting projects in order to support great ideas and making this world a better place. Stay safe be kind.
My biggest reason for re-investing into Calculated Sequels "Onedoor studios" is the teamwork and their transparency and making their investors feel like we are part of the team too. All of you are great.
I am a Retired U.S. Air Force Senior Non-Commisioned Officer. During my 70 years of life entertainment has been a priority! Still is!
I enjoy reading the books and look forward to seeing the big screen versions.
Interested to know what more is to come.
Lol to go were sequels have never been before 😂
Having the opportunity to make people "dream" in a theater was always a goal, now I can make it happen.
This is a dream come true. To be part of an incredible team, and a great project.
I like the idea of the story and I believe in the production team behind it.
It's exciting to think you helped initiate somebody's dream, which may inturn initiate your dream. For all we know it may also spark a new thought or view from someone that views the final product which becomes a new dream for a new dreamer that they may one day share with the world. How could I not invest and see what magic it brings to the world!

The team behind this production is pretty much a dream team; do I need to say more?
I'm from the 9th Ward of New Orleans. I LOVE film, and am a reviewer for New Orleans Film Society/ Festival. I'm THRILLED to be an investor.
I've loved movies all of my life, especially classic films. I'm a reviewer for the New Orleans Film Society & Festival. LEGION M & One Door Studios has allowed me to realize a dream I didn't even know I had, bcuz it's idea was NOT in my reach or realm of possibility...that of being a REAL part, an OWNER, a VOICE, in the industry and community that I love! It's afforded me the opportunity to move from voyeur to hands on, accredited participant, and I'm CERTAIN that my investments will afford my granddaughter the opportunity to do the same, but as an EARLY investor, who has directly benefited from her Grandmother's investment, and who has REAL status. THANK U ALL for your vision, but most of all, for your inclusivity. BIG HUGS all around!

I invested in Calculated on a whim actually. There are all types of investments from tech to drinks, but this was the first unique investment I have seen. After reading the description, I figured why not. I'm glad I did, especially with all the updates John, Stephen and Jason have provided. Usually you get a written updated monthly if you're lucky. Not only are these updates informational, they also educate everyone about the film industry. Keep up the great work and continuing educational updates.
I love the books.
