AIM’s Mission is to produce film projects that are successful commercially but that can also stand on their own as an art form. Our Vision is to create enduring wonder through a unique film experience.
This is our philosophy:
“IT’S ALL ABOUT THE STORY AND HOW IT WILL BE TOLD.”
Transporting an audience through different worlds and ages is one of the purest forms of entertainment; in books, music, paintings, stage plays and most certainly on film, you will find that our capacity to provoque awe in someone else’s imagination is a primordial talent. Memorable visuals and sounds enhancing powerful and original performances can successfully make a story come alive, even if fantastic or farfetched events happen. Finding the extraordinary out of the ordinary makes our minds discover metaphors of life in every well told tale. We don’t just make movies, we live and breathe them. We AIM to make the films we would love to see at the cinema.
“MAKING THE AUDIENCE AN INTRINSIC PART OF THE MOVIE WILL MAKE IT BECOME THEIR OWN.”
If the audience engages in our story’s drama, they will take the journey with us, wherever and whenever we want to lead them. The goal is to return them quite more than what they paid for at the box office; to surpass their expectations without claiming to be genius or even artistically aiming to give more than what the audience expects. People go to the movies to be entertained; if they applaud when the final credits appear, then they will be our unconditional supporters, this, in the end, is more significant than any advertising campaign, no matter how big it is. Today’s audiences follows word of mouth more than ever, especially for independent productions since social media has overpowered saturated traditional media in many cases.
“A MOVIE HAS TO BE ENTERTAINING, IT ALL DEPENDS ON DRAMA.”
We don’t rely on gratuitous explosions or smashing vehicles to get male teens attention, or romantic tragedies to get young women to watch a movie, just as explicit “Gore” is not indispensable to make a great Scary movie. Romance, suspense, terror, comedy and tragedy are not only genres in a blockbuster sense, they are all part of the drama.
Just as in our lives, they should represent “moments” that flow through the story and this should prove compelling for any audience and greatly enhanced when watched with companions. If this is achieved, the story is universal, not only trans-generational and trans-gender but also trans-social and most importantly, it becomes transcendental. It becomes one of those movies that everyone remembers and keeps in a DVD, a Digital Download and even purchases it’s soundtrack; a film that moves and inspires.
“A TICKET FOR A FOUR MILLION DOLLAR FILM, COSTS THE SAME AS A HUNDRED MILLION DOLLAR FILM.”
Making good smart, entertaining movies is as hard as making boring, superficial or pretentious films. It’s all about common sense, we never forget films are not made for critics; films are made for the folks that pay their tickets at the box office; this premise is always on our minds. Throwing tens of millions of dollars onto a film is no longer a guarantee for it’s success.
Today’s audiences seek films that will make them dream, think and feel, such movies become an experience. A top-quality production reflected by all the creative and technical departments is a given. It does matters, how wonderful the production design is, how spectacular the special effects are, how famous the actors or how beautiful the cinematography looks; but what matters the most is to have a good story, that is well told by smart direction and through strong performances and well designed productions.
“AT AIM WE KNOW THAT INDEPENDENT MOVIES ARE BECOMING MORE SUCCESSFUL THAN EVER BEFORE”
We consider there’s something wrong when the budget for publicity and advertising often is as big as the budget for the film itself. The care and respect for the project, this is the stuff that will make it all happen. We also believe that audiences all around the world have become more critical and have sent a clear message: they would rather watch inexpensive films that appeal to the mind, the heart and the soul, than shallow entertainment without any substance. True classic family stories should be able to entertain a wide age range of audiences.
