The Cinemarquee grew out of a vision that two young men had as they analyzed the internet in 1997. Drawing together the finest cinema and literary resources to be found on the net, they sought to build the structure of an online film studio, with all that a visionary might need to carve his cinematic vision into reality, from film financing, to casting directors, to crew. John Edgerton a sometimes dreamer, a screenwriter/film fundraiser, former property master and set decorator in Hollywood sought to bring his dream to life, meeting up with ingenious computer programmer and computer problem solver Dan Greitzer.

Calling upon the resources accumulated through the years, the round table of the Cinemarquee has gathered together financial networking connections of over $100 million in individual investor's finances ready to invest in film. New to the film financing market, they are presently reviewing ten film projects with the prospect of financing them. With their rich associations into motion pictures which include independent filmmakers and major studio heads, Cinemarquee has the capabilities of working with projects through development, connecting them to Producers, Directors, getting a budget broken down, rewriting scripts and acquiring international distribution for their clients.

In developing the Cinemarquee Film Financing Group and online film studio, it was the intent of its creators to meet the dreams and needs of professionals in film, seeking to breath life into their own creations. We offer through our extensive knowledge in film, expertise in financing and distribution (for a commission) as a well developed film package is presented to us. Or working with a Producer or Production Company (as development money is presented), we can transform a storyline to the final draft of the screenplay, and as the script has been finalized, calculate a production budget breakdown, write a finalized business plan and create necessary film package graphics. Then weaving our Cinemarquee magic within the celebrity circles and financial circuits, it is our privilege to connect our client to Producers, Directors and Crew for the production (with letters of intent) and a finished film financing package, professionally done and ready to present for our final step, that of financing and review for distribution.

In addition for networking as a film financing entity, Cinemarquee has several of its own projects in development, three of which will be made into major feature films this year, the romantic comedies "Rainbow Over Hollywood" and "Take Me Out To The Ball Game", and the science fiction thriller "Last Horizon". We seeking further interest from investors, venture capitalists, studios and motion picture companies to Co-produce our own projects.
