Ace Pix International Inc. specializes in producing commercial movies, ranging from: action, adventure, comedy, love, war-drama and thriller. Compared to major studio's budgets with a minimum of forty million and to as much as two hundred fifty million . As a cost conscious production company, our budgets, depending on a particular script, locations, and star names, average between three to twelve million U.S. dollars, therefore, the costs are substantially lower than most production companies, and without the tremendous overhead expenses of a studio and its personnel.
Our company has solid contacts with the Philippine government, therefore we can shoot in that country, on certain films, with reasonable budgets. Anthony Cardoza, produced two films there ("Raw Force" and "Heated Vengeance"), having much experience with Filipino crews and the way they operate. We can shoot in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, China, Hong Kong, Thailand.
We secure advanced tie-in promotions with various servicing and manufacturing industries : Ford, Pennzoil, STP, and other name brand companies, for cross-promotional advertising as well as strengthening the added publicity for our movies release. Manufacturing and servicing industries choose to promote their product or services with tie-ins, by giving away gifts or trips, etc. Therefore, we use these products to heighten consumer's awareness with movie contests by worldwide Internet, online , to promote the films release.
We are currently merchandising our movie related products, such as: T-shirts, jackets, caps, bumper stickers, key chains, etc. using the world wide web.
We use a pool of talented musicians to score original music for our films which have the potential of producing hit-records, this enhances the value of each production and gives it added radio exposure. CDs, records, movie music soundtracks are created and available for international markets. Sales of these can provide a significant amount of recurring income revenue, through BMI and ASCAP who collect recording royalties internationally for any particular soundtrack for movie studios, such as ours.
