Discovery to Launch
Discovery - determine interest and scope of the project.
Goal - a national TV program on advertising based broadcast, cable or subscription based platform.
Ten businesses filmed over a year for weekly TV would cost at least $1M (for a crew of 15-20).
Budget - to be determined during discovery as it will vary significantly depending on scope and talent costs. Typical reality can cost $100K-$500K per episode. We expect to be well under that.
Sponsors - We will underwrite production expenses through sponsorship from companies who want to align with our message of hope, unity and initiative through - product placement, commercial spots and named sponsors. We will promote coop advertising with our sponsors and shared social media promotion.
Donors/Grants - will be targeted at construction and business restart expenses. They will not go to media production expenses unless a clear public benefit is determined.
Distribution - We plan to split a portion of profits (after production expenses) with a fund that directly benefits business restarts. Silker Studios and Rebuilding Hope LLC will retain control of the IP pending distribution contracts to ensure the show stays true to its purpose of unity and positivity.
Local media commitment
We intend to use local MN media crews as exclusively as possible and leverage this opportunity to further our efforts at equipping and resourcing emerging cross-cultural media talent.
Owner's Story - know and love them (interviews, pictures and video)
Owner's Plan - Where do we go from here? (follow them through the decisions, challenges, and victories)

Involvement of Professional Teams - architects, bankers, marketers, legal, and city, (positive exposure for professionals/discounted or pro bono services for those rebuilding their business)
Pivot & Growth Consultation - their ideas and input from other entrepreneurs - a bit of lean start up experimentation
Community Support & Customer Testimonials - moments of pitching in and celebration
Ongoing Interviews - with all participants
