GI Pictures breaks new ground. It’s the first-ever program for military members to access film and media opportunities. It’s the way for active armed forces members, veterans, and dependents to participate in writing, producing, directing, acting, and crewing on professional movies, television and web series. This means jobs. Money. Having your scripts produced. Appearing in movies. Building a new career.
GI Pictures is the creation of NEHST Studios. Financed to produce feature films, television, and web series – NEHST has announced a major film fund. CEO Larry Meistrich has produced over 50 features including the Oscar-winning "Sling Blade," "You Can Count on Me," "Croupier," and "Belly."
GI Pictures wants to help you break in. First, we're looking for scripts to build a production around. We want you to submit your ideas. We will select at least one each year to fund and produce – staffing the production completely with military and their dependents. It doesn’t have to be a military movie – any genre is OK.
Don’t worry if you have no experience – great script ideas come from everywhere. And if you're interested in crewing a film, the skills you have from the military – discipline, logistics, organization, teamwork, and any technical skills you’ve acquired, can immediately be translated and retrained into film production skills. We want motivated beginners. Do it! Registering as an actor in the screentest.biz database gives you access to professional performance opportunities.
Many veterans have gone on to great careers in film and media – reality show superstar Mark Burnett, Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone, and actor R. Lee Ermey, to name only a few. GI Pictures combines the two things America does better than anyone in the world – military and movies. We will discover the brightest and the best and give them access. Our objective with GI Pictures is to support the troops and their dependents – and create jobs and economic growth.
To submit an idea – click PITCH NOW. If you’re an actor, director, crew member – or would like to be – click CAST/CREW. We believe in this. We got tired of hearing people “talk” about supporting the troops – so we did something. Now YOU do something. Take your shot, SIGN UP NOW. It could change your life.
