Stellaris - A Galaxy of Stars The Factory - Hub of the Wheel Stellaris International Enterprises, or what we call "The Factory", is a business enterprise founded upon one of the most unique ideas to evolve in the media entertainment industry since the golden era of Hollywood. Its formula for success is based on a recipe comprised of business, scientific, and mathematical models that ensure the success in the areas of business management, economics, analytics, and marketing. All of it is necessary to ensure the success of a film, television show, web-series, and any other form of digital media without sacrificing artistic integrity. A feature film, television show, and even internet content are all products. Artistic? Yes, but nevertheless commodities that should be packaged and sent to market like any other product. In short, The Factory will provide entertainment product to meet a worldwide market demand, control the supply of that product, increase its market share, and control its profit stream.
The beauty of the system is that, in part, it is based on a marketing formula designed to ensure financial success with limited risks. Most of today's independent producers, especially producing at the low budget level, are not aware of this winning system, and fall victim to working with the distributors who control their content and thus the revenue stream.
The Factory is high profle, and precedent setting. It is a showcase for independent digital media production, spearheading new techniques in project development and market penetration, especially in the emerging Faith-Based markets. It has brought back the artistic quality and integrity to digital media production while creating a business platform that ensures financial success.
The Factory is currently comprised of seven independent companies mutually exclusive,yet working synergistically together to provide a the best digital media product for the Independent digital media industries and for global distribution:
Stellaris Films: Producing full length feature films;
Stellaris True North: Specializing in faith-based and spiritual digital content;
Stellaris IMAD: 'I'm Making a Difference', providing outreach informational support; Stellaris EDQ Animation: Producing full length animated films;
Stellaris TeleNet: Producing digital content for television and the internet;
Stellaris Film School, providing Workshops in Script Writing, Acting, Producing, and Directing;
Stellaris Entertainment Finance: Providing funding for all digital media content.

Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger
Executive Vice President - Creative Development
Against all odds on a gridiron in South Bend, Indiana, Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger, in twenty-seven seconds, carved his name into history books as perhaps the most famous graduate of the University of Notre Dame. The son of an oil refinery worker and the third of 14 children, Rudy rose from valleys of discouragement and despair to the pinnacles of success. Today, he is one of the most popular motivational speakers in the United States. It took years of fierce determination to overcome obstacles and criticisms, yet Rudy achieved his first dream - to attend Notre Dame and play football for the Fighting Irish. As fans cheered "RU-DY, RU-DY," he sacked the quarterback in the last 27 seconds of the only play in the only game of his college football career. He is known to be the only player in the school's history to be carried off the field on his teammates' shoulders. In 1993, TRISTAR Productions immortalized his life story with the blockbuster film, RUDY. Written and produced by Angelo Pizzo and David Anspaugh, the award-winning team who brought us HOOSIERS, the critically acclaimed RUDY received "Two Thumbs Up" from Siskel and Ebert and continues to inspire millions worldwide.
“Yes I can”
Today, a highly sought after motivational speaker, Rudy entertains international corporate audiences with a unique, passionate, and heartfelt style of communicating. He reaches school children, university students, and professional athletes with that same enthusiasm, portraying the human spirit that comes from his personal experiences of adversity and triumph. His captivating personality and powerful message of "YES I CAN" stay with his audiences forever. Rudy's opening remarks receive thunderous applause and standing ovations from audiences of 200 to 20,000 people who emotionally chant "RU-DY, RU-DY!”
Rudy has appeared on various high profile nationally televised talk shows and radio shows across the country, is featured in national magazine publications, and has been honored with the key to many cities in the United States with special proclamations for his inspiration, commitment, and human spirit. Rudy received an Honorary Doctorate Degree from Our Lady of Holy Cross College, the Distinguished American Award, A Proclamation from the Governor of Nevada granting an Official Rudy Award Day, was inducted into the Speakers Hall of Fame, and spoke at the White House during the presidencies of George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.

Stellaris True North - President
Mr. Davis grew up as a pastor’s son in a mega church in the San Francisco Bay Area and, as a pastor’s son, he has had unique opportunities to see the impact of the church - both good and bad. Beneath all of that is a dedication to his faith and family values. He co-founded the Santa Cruz chapter of the Coalition for Traditional Values, and observed various projects come and go through traditional church marketing channels when his father served as the publisher for Gospel Light in the 90’s. His own career in business and entertainment has allowed him to be part of many creative projects. He brings a combination of traditional business experience and creativity to the Team.
Mr. Davis worked on the lot at Paramount Studios writing business plans for independent film companies. It was there that he met Jeff Ross, founder of Stellaris International. That relationship grew and became a natural fit for Mr. Davis to help launch the TRUE NORTH divisional company of Stellaris.
Mr. Davis has served in active ministry throughout his life. He has served as a worship leader, men’s ministry director, and as children’s ministry actor in the “Caraway Street” programs.
In short, Mr. Davis has been involved in many innovative and progressive business, marketing, and entertainment projects over the past 25 years.
He adds a depth of traditional business experience that brings broader perspective to motion picture projects and corporate branding. His experience and skill sets have been honed while serving roles such as CEO of a publicly traded company, game show developer, startup entrepreneur, seven-figure funding acquisition for an offshore development, and themed retail design consultant.
He has been quoted as saying, “I believe we have an opportunity to bring real hope to people through captivating stories. Jesus used stories to deliver truth. Paul used analogies to reach the un-churched. Audiences are looking to be inspired. We live in the greatest time in world history for telling stories that can be spread across the globe. This is our call.”
Stellaris IMAD - President
Mr. Landi is an award winning California educator, author, trainer of trainers, motivational speaker, education and business consultant, entrepreneur and founder of Today’s Kids are Tomorrow’s World. His passion to affect positive change in this nation’s compulsory system of education was born as a result of his association with like-minded professionals early in his career.
In the mid 1970’s, a network of health care professionals in Orange County, California formed a study group in an attempt to find an answer to a common and puzzling problem they were all experiencing. The group included Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Counselors, Internists and Pediatricians, all of whom were seeing children in their practices that were getting sick as a result of what was going on in school. Because the cases were so widespread, they set out to determine what things in a “teaching/learning” environment could be as “toxic” to the human organism as to make it sick.
Because the issue was school related, the key players of that group invited one educator to become an integral part of their study group. Bob Landi was that educator. They worked closely together for three years. Through their research, study and testing, they discovered a ‘flaw’ in the basic foundation of our nation’s compulsory education system. Unfortunately, that ‘flaw’ was there by design; and it was systemic. As a result, the educator and two of the psychologists created a program to not only overcome that flaw – but also to reverse its affect. The foundation of that program was a positive-shaping delivery mechanism. Woven into the tapestry of the program were principles, concepts, strategies and techniques designed to work in concert with the laws of nature. The “positive shaping program” was implemented in schools. The results were dramatic.
Because the program’s foundation is designed to work in concert with natural human tendencies – it applies to adults as well as children. Bob is collaborating with Stellaris International, The June Jones Foundation, The Og Mandino Group, Foundation for Economic Empowerment, and the Charitable Giving Foundation in the development of systemized programs and tools designed to take individuals from the point of Self-Empowerment to Self-Reliance.
When Mr. Landi agreed to join the referenced organizations to help them realize their missions – he gave as his rationale these words spoken by Horace Mann – the father of American education - as he was delivering a commencement speech to the graduating class of Antioch College in 1859: “I beseech you to treasure up in your hearts these my parting words: Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity!”

Stellaris' Divisional Companies
The Spokes of the Wheel
The Factory in Poetic Motion
The Divisional Company - Stellaris Films is the flagship and anchor of Stellaris. The model from which the Company was designed took its blueprint from how Stellaris Films develops, finances, produces, markets, and distributes feature films. In application, Stellaris Films is the epitome of science and art working side by side.
Although the company focuses on providing high-end, quality commercial films of most genres, its main target is PG, family-based films that are also motivational and inspirational. Films like Rudy and Blind Side. Many of these films (two of which are in Pre-development and Preproduction - Born In June and Sedona Sage), are able to cross over to the Faith-based market and, as such, Stellaris Films will work closely with Stellaris True North (see below).
Stellaris True North
Inspiration Through Entertainment
This company, under the Stellaris banner will specialize in Faith-Based content. For the purposes of market strategy, Faith-based content will be defined as Christian/Judaic Fundamentalism.
The focus is to produce faith-based content to that dedicated market, while developing that content so as to appeal to the Secular/Mainstream marketplace. Thus, helping to bridge the gap between the two sectors. In this vein, True North will work closely with three of its sister companies: Stellaris Films, initially collaborating on such films as - The Disciples of Christ, The Christ Commission, The World’s Greatest Salesman, The Secrets of the Lost Scroll; with Stellaris TeleNet, implementing spiritual and inspirational television shows through, and the development and distribution of, spiritual/inspirational based web programming; and Stellaris IMAD, which is charged with ensuring that the compelling messages from the films will continue to be embraced by the market sectors.
Stellaris True North will develop and solicit spiritual/inspirational content from around the world and bring it to life via the following media venues: feature films, television, and webisodes.
In short, the goal of the Company is to develop, produce and distribute digital media content that fosters hope and inspiration to people around the world.
For the above goal to be successful, both in accomplishments and profit, it is imperative that Stellaris develop a proactive, Faith-based campaign. To do that, it is important to employ an Executive with experience in spiritual-based programming and media distribution experience to run this division. We believe that we have found that individual in Marcum Davis. (See Board of Directors above.)
In addition, the distribution of Faith-based content is a specialty in and of itself. To ensure that the exploitation of the Company’s content reaches the right market effectively, the Company has recruited marketing expert, Don Stillman, to develop and execute Faith-based marketing plans and promotions for Stellaris.
Leveraging his access to America's 300,000+ churches and their most influential leaders, pastors and media ministries, Stellaris’ films and media content will resonate as a powerful and inspirational "must see" for millions of people of faith everywhere. Using his 30-million name Christian database to advantage, Don and his team will help deliver this powerful group of consumers to the box office, and everywhere Stellaris media products are sold.
I'm Making A Difference
Stellaris’ IMAD. (I’m Making A Difference) Program is a divisional company of Stellaris. It is fundamentally a cause oriented, principle based organization with a primary goal of providing opportunities, strategies, tools and programs to provide people pathways to Self-Empowerment – then to Self-Reliance! I-M.A.D. Programs will be both Virtual and Live.
The impetus - the lightning rod that will drive people to IMAD’s Programs is Stellaris International’s Flagship: A feature film based on Napoleon Hill’s book, Outwitting the Devil. Outwitting the Devil is a faith based film that will move and inspire people and provide them with the hope that they can make their lives more successful, meaningful and fulfilling.
IMAD’s work begins when people leave the theater with hope instilled by the film – and are looking for a “place to go” to find the answers they seek. Hope alone is not enough for the uncertainties, self-doubts, fears, and self-destructive behaviors that haunt people today. These behaviors are at epidemic proportions and, unless hope is followed by “productive actions,” it will dissipate and disappear like a puff of smoke.
IMAD is designed to provide people with that “place to go” - a place that will present opportunities to engage in programs and activities that will solidify and sustain that hope– then take it to belief - then to productive behaviors – and on to a sense of Self-Empowerment and Self-Reliance!
As stated – the IMAD Programs will be both Virtual and Live, featuring but not limited to: Live Events (Seminars & Workshops), Reality TV & Talk Shows, Interactive Multi-Media Programs, Virtual Training, Professional & Personal Development, Mentoring and Coaching, Multi-Player Interactive Games & Animated & Situational Interactivities, Webinars & Webcasts, as well as Printed Training Materials.
IMAD will have its own sub-divisions/departments which will include, but not be limited to such areas as Education, Publishing, Speakers Bureau, Marketing & Public Relations, Event Coordination, Program Production, Strategic Partner Development & Relations, Children’s Program Development, Production & Delivery, along with Philanthropic and For Profit Divisions. These components favor a profit-oriented structure that will finance growth of each division from their own success and developmental and ongoing evolution.
The desired outcome of IMAD is to utilize every creative and delivery resource available to us to help create Self-Motivated, Self-Empowered, Self-Reliant Contributing members of Society – for the realization of our lofty goals will not only help the individuals engaged in our program – but also the nation as a whole! The need is evident – and the time is now!
In short, IMAD is the central source for extending the core messages of the variety of content that Stellaris produces, especially that content that is Faith Based and Spiritual Based (motivational and inspirational). The goal of this company/division is to provide services and materials to individuals around the world that either embrace the messages of empowerment, faith, and inspiration inherent in Stellaris' content, or are in need of it. In addition, the company/division will maintain an educational role, while continuing to raise the awareness of the company's existing services.
Stellaris EDQ Animation
Redefining the Meaning of State-Of-The-Art
The animation film has long been accepted as a true art form and one that movie-goers embrace. Walt Disney created an empire on the cartoon. Today, however, animation, which includes Motion Capture, 3D-IMax, and other forms of visual and special effects has become a major industry with no end in sight. However, up to now animated feature films have been the exclusive domain of the large studio system. Now...we have EDQ.
Stellairs EDQ Animation, LLC (EDQ) was formed by a unique group of artists to inspire the youth and to spark an interest in the arts and it’s many related vocations. Our objective is to encourage creativity and inspire children by exposing the students to the individual elements of the music, film, dance, animation, staging, sound, lighting, Foley, writing, painting and the supporting vocations required from the arts.
EDQ stands alone among its peers. Unlike any other animation production studio in the world, due to our unique proprietary software and technological process, EDQ can now produce a full-length animation film for a fraction of the needed man-power and at one tenth the price of a regular animated film.
Imagine Tangled, Shrek 3, Up, Toy Story 3, or Cars 2, which all cost over $190 million dollars to produce, now costing in the neighborhood of $14 M, and instead of taking 2 to 4 years to complete, having this type of quality film, Adventures In The 4th World, could be completed within 15 to 17 months!
Now, imagine further those same films, whose box office returns range between $400 to $500 million dollars still obtaining those revenue platforms while costing only $14 million to produce.
It all begins with our first feature film, “Huggins”, formerly titled Adventures in the Fourth World.”
“Huggins” is an animated feature film based on an Original Musical Story by our Managing Director Richard Nicklaus. For more information on EDQ or Huggins, click on link below.
The Future of Programming
To ensure competitiveness in this industry, constant innovation is imperative. We are already working on several initiatives that will enhance our current offerings. These include:
• Quality Productions that follow researched demographic lines for maximum returns.
• An aggressive marketing and Web presence. Our marketing, operations and business-to-business use of the web will be cutting-edge. Our web sites and the utilization of them will serve all three fronts. Stellaris will house Stellaris’ PR and public image, business-to-business, and operations, giving us a worldwide presence on all three fronts. With the arrival of 4G in the US market, Stellaris will take full advantage of all the marketing opportunities.
• Mobile media, promotion, and interaction.
TeleNet is the Company’s Television and Internet Divisional Company whose focus is to produce television and web-based products for a global market. In addition, it will support the sister companies in providing viral marketing and internet campaigns.
Stellaris Film School
Stellaris International provides an enriched and diverse learning environment for individuals involved, or seeking to become involved in the film and television industries. The Company is dedicated to teaching a more pragmatic approach to film-making and television movies; focusing predominately in the areas of screenwriting, acting, producing, and directing.
We do not teach theory or other all-embracing concepts. Our workshops are designed with a hands-on methodology that allows the student to immediately apply what he or she has learned.
Stellaris Entertainment Finance
Exploring Creative Frontiers of Film Finanancing
Film finance is an aspect of film production that occurs during the development stage prior to pre-production, and is concerned with determining the potential value of a proposed film. In the United States, the value is typically based on a forecast of revenues over a 10 to 15-year period, beginning with theatrical release, and including DVD sales, release to cable broadcast television networks and television syndication - both domestic and international, and inflight airline licensing.
Film finance is a subset of project finance, meaning the film project's generated cash flows are used to repay investors, and generally not from external sources. This, however, has been met with new ways to protect principal, and insure against loss of investors' assets.
As such, in addition to generating revenue from the normal/traditional distribution venues, Stellaris will also proactively utilize pre-development revenue sources and fund Independently produced product through its Divisional Company - Stellaris Entertainment Finance.
