Planet 9 Productions, LLC provides equity and debt financing for the production of major motion pictures. We also seek to partner with writers, directors and other producers to bring important stories to the big screen.
Why Planet 9 Productions? We (humans) have deeply rooted tendency to confuse fact with perception. We are so certain in our perception that we conclude it is cold hard fact…..then, a discovery is made. Pluto is downgraded. A new planet is (may have been) “discovered.” Swapping out Pluto with Planet 9, our solar system has an entirely different “look” and set of proportions from what we’ve “known” our entire lives. We made ”solar system models” when we were kids. None of us thought—well maybe this is what it looks like. We all thought—this is it, we know exactly what it looks like. Then, boom! A group of scientists just up the road from us tells us tells us we appear to be wrong about it. And what a beautiful, poetic, majestic name they’ve given this new discovery——Planet 9!
Movies (like other story telling) allow us to play with and explore this idea. We can gain a deeper understanding of the most complex truths of the human experience from fictional stories than we ever could from historic or “factual” accounts.
We can illuminate complex topics by taking a familiar situation from an entirely different point of view, perspective, and therewith offer the viewer a totally different perception to consider. The name “Planet 9” is a daily reminder of this easily ignored, if not quiet forgotten, truth.
