Demand for Content Continues to Rise, There's Never Been a Better Time to Produce Films or Shows.
In a typical year 1,500+ films are theatrically released in the U.S. by distributors to 40M+ moviegoers. (Post pandemic, only 886 films were released in 2021 and only 85 were slated for 2022). Meanwhile, the Streamers (Prime, Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max), servicing an ever-growing, 420M+ subscriber base, continue to increase catalog sizes, which in aggregate exceeds 22,000 films and 7,000 shows. When one further accounts for, the worldwide shutdown and lack of new inventory production, the depletion of old inventory, and the re-opening of theaters,
it is easy to see why demand for films and shows is at an all-time high.
Covid-19 Highlighted Industry Problems, Evolution in its Aftermath Created Opportunity for Independents.
Pre-pandemic theater attendance hit an all-time high; data so far shows that it has returned. Mean-while post-pandemic, ongoing shifts in consumer behavior are amplified, accelerating digital disruption, forging Industry
tipping points that wouldn’t have been reached for years. Streaming hours increased due primarily to the lock-down (Americans stream an average of 8 hours daily) and the Streaming market is estimated to have a 21% CARG ("Compound Annual Growth Rate") and be valued at +$220 billion by 2028.
APHP and its Indie Partners are Well-Positioned to Reap Rewards from this Ever-Growing Market.
APHP's management team and key advisors have developed strategic relationships over the past 30+ years.
APHP's target-market niche is for films ($2M to $6M) and shows (+$6M). Indie projects afford, flexibility of locale, greater production incentives, and wider opportunities for stars to stretch their talents and win awards. APHP is adept at creative financing and partners with top-tier Independent film/show producers and A-List Hollywood talent to develop and acquire broad-appeal content for worldwide distribution.
Watching Films and Shows Has Never Been So Convenient; Demand for Content Is Off-the-Charts.
While theater attendance will inevitably return, in the interim the streaming business continues to surge. In under
a decade, U.S. streaming-subscribers increased +450% (+45% of all U.S. households have access). Netflix maintains a 34% market share with +200M subscribers; Amazon has +150M subscribers, Disney +87M. As viewers burn through content, Steamer inventories deplete, and theaters re-open, the clamor for new content is expected to drive a Market recovery (at a 6% CAGR) to reach +$350B value in 2023.

A Proprietary Financing and Co-Production Model Empowers APHP to Better Fund and Create.

more by pre‐sales and incentives. APHP targets mid-range projects, where the equity outlay is primarily for cash flow and no more than 30% of the budget.

also takes advantage of tax-breaks to reduce costs and attract investors.
Seasoned Professionals, Astute Financiers, and Vetted Creatives Are Paramount to APHP's Success.

films are dramas, adding credence to the attraction of a well-crafted character that can be portrayed by a recognized actor interested in broadening their own perceived value (and possibly an Oscar nomination).
