Funding Crescent Wave Entertainment


There's no business like Show Business.

Teamwork

Goal: To establish a paid film industry in the Tampa Bay Area.

Community support can make the difference to our local film industry in the Tampa Bay, Florida area. 


When someone provides funds to Crescent Wave Entertainment they fund film projects that employ actors, crew and generate revenue for caterers, and other local businesses in the area. Film projects give back to the local community.  

Every person helping to fund our film projects will receive credit as an Investor in the end credits of our current film project. 

Support can be as little as a $1.00 or more. Thank You 

$25.00 or more and you will receive an autographed copy of my latest Fantasy Book - The Wizard and Other Shorts Stories as shown on Amazon.com =============>
