MORE THAN A MOVIE
Unlike other crowdfunding campaigns, when you back our project on WeVidIt, you’re not donating money, you’re investing in the show’s success. That means if the show succeeds in earning enough revenue, you will earn a share of the profits. And the profits on successful content can be huge.* The top 10 highest-grossing franchises of all time have been made for kids. In addition, when you invest in The Unusual Tale, you’re not just in a movie, you're investing in the animation studio. There’s a need for great family-friendly media, especially a movie that tells the original Christmas Story. Isn't it time for people to know what Christmas is about?
*Although it is true that profits on successful content can be huge, we are not making a guarantee of any return. Please only invest what you can afford to lose.
**Investing in Reg CF is only available to U.S. residents.
OUR FILM PROJECT IS NOT AFFILIATED WITH ANGEL STUDIOS. WHILE WE MAY EXPLORE A RELATIONSHIP WITH THEM, OUR FILM MUST PASS ITS PROPRIETARY JURY SELECTION PROCESS BEFORE BEING CONSIDERED FOR FUNDRAISING AND DISTRIBUTION PARTNERSHIPS.

Will this movie be true to the musical?
Yes, it’s based on the musical that’s been running Nation-wide for 7 years. Audiences love it, so we will stay true to what audiences love.
When will the Movie come out?
We have to raise the investment first! So share the animations with your friends and buy the album. If we make enough noise someone rich might hear us. ;-D
Where will I be able to watch The Unusual Tale?
We are in talks with distributors that are available on multiple devices and platforms.
Can I invest more than once?
Yes! You may invest as many times as you would like until you reach your investment limit under Reg CF (as long as you haven't reached your personal investment limits set up by the SEC).
Is the minimum investment $100?
Yes. Transaction costs related to the purchase of the units, and ongoing maintenance make accepting investments less than $100 unsustainable for the company. But you are welcome to donate to our work using the pay-it-forward button up top.
Why is the amount I invested limited?
Our ability to offer our units to the public is possible due to recent legislation known as the Jobs Act. This same law limits the amount that investors can purchase based on your annual revenue and net worth. If you have additional questions regarding this limit, feel free to ask in our Q&A tool at the bottom of the main page of this offering.
Why can’t I invest if I am not a U.S. citizen?
Every country has its own securities laws. We are offering this Reg CF round under the laws of the US and so we know what we need to do to allow US citizens to invest and be compliant with those laws. We don't have the resources to be able to identify and comply with the securities laws in other jurisdictions, so we limit investments to US citizens.
Do I get updates on how my ownership is doing?
Yes, as part of Regulation CF, we are required to file annual reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We will post that on this site. We will also send out regular investor updates via email to let you know all the latest news of the company.
