sin'- di-kit (noun): a group of individuals or organizations combined or making a joint effort to undertake some specific duty or carry out specific transactions or negotiations.
Hollywood studios do business the same way and with the same people, which is why most stories are told from the same perspective. They're using their monopoly of entertainment to influence the masses and to change American culture in ways that go against the principles that laid the foundation of this country. They recite a mantra that it's just business and that what they produce is about money, not racist, political or religious beliefs. But, America is culturally diverse, politically right of center, and still predominantly Christian (over 70% Christian according to the 2010 US Census), so if they really made business decisions based on the audience's demographics and not their own, movies would reflect the stats.
The Syndicate is building a New Hollywood of outsiders, some are young and talented, some are seasoned and experienced, from different backgrounds and specialties on the creative and business sides of the entertainment industry. We can, and must, independently produce great content that reinforces Judeo-Christian principles and are told from Black, Latino and other perspectives, and get them into the marketplace. The absence of our content from the entertainment and media is fanning the flames of divisiveness. We can make films and tv that enlighten, encourage, inspire and heal.
THE SYNDICATE'S MISSION:
I. A TV SHOW THAT UNIFIES US - "SWING SALSA STEP!"
There's no talking on the dance floor. We don't talk about politics, religion, family issues or problems at work. We speak with our bodies. Every move, spin and dip is the Lead's way of telling the follower how he feels about the music and her. The Follow listens and trusts him. If music is the international language, dancing is its second language. It exists in every culture around the world and always has. Adam and Eve were probably dancing in the Garden of Eden under the moonlight.
West Coast Swing, Salsa and Chicago Steppin' are the three most popular social dances in America today. Social dances are those in which the man normally leads and the woman follows. Each dance has a huge underground community of dance addicts and rightfully so! Dancing is fun, romantic, energizing, keeps you physically fit and relieves stress.
SWING SALSA STEP! is a 1-hour unscripted reality and instructional show where the six main cast members, three Leads and three Follows, will be our ambassadors to the huge underground communities of West Coast Swing, Salsa and Chicago Steppin. Our cast members are performers, competitors and instructors...and people who just like to party and dance.
Our instructors will also teach our viewers basic, intermediate and advance moves so they get off social media and get to socializing on the dance floor! We'll help new dancers find communities in their area or start new ones so they can make real friends and create lasting relationships across the country.
SWING SALSA STEP! is a show about unity and comradarie. It'll unite us at a time when we need it more than ever. Help make it happen!
II. THE ULTIMATE FAITH-BASED FILM - "THE SECOND COMING"
I often hear televangelists quote Matthew 24:14 when asking for donations. They say, "And the gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come." But the verse actually says, "THIS gospel" and it's talking about the second coming of Christ, not the first.
In Matthew 24:3, the disciples asked Jesus for the signs of his return and the end of the world. In Matthew 24:4-13, Jesus told them the signs in world events, human behavior and climate change that will signal his return and the end of days. Then he said this gospel (the gospel about his return and the end of the world) shall be preached all over the world and then the end shall come.
This film is a vehicle to preach THIS gospel in all the world. We will get the film into theaters and reach millions around the world with a warning about the signs of the times so that the body of Christ can prepare ourselves and our families for things that are about to happen.
If the world seems to be more dangerous and crazier than ever, that's because it is. This is the calm before the storm. Read about it yourself in Matthew 24.
