Our Story


A film based off a book for the whole family

In 2007, author D. Goode Morgan published the book, The Furry Fortune. Thirteen years later, we’re excited to announce the upcoming release of The Furry Fortune, a movie about a dog whose fur turns into money! This exciting movie will show the true meaning of family and send a great message.

The Problem


Audiences are looking for family-friendly entertainment

In a world with so much negativity and conflict, we believe people are looking for escapism and entertainment they can share with the whole family. Storytelling and movies have always been a strong means of connection between parents and their children, and we want to provide a film that builds on this tradition.

The Solution


A dog-centered movie with a PAW-sitive message

Two twins, who are growing apart, discover their dog starts shedding money after he jumps through the end of a rainbow. The neighbors, a malicious IRS agent and his evil son, kidnap the money-making canine. Then, the kids must work together to save their pet and their family! In the end, their family is far more important than any amount of money.

Our Traction


We have a strong start on creative and we're building an audience

  • Contracts signed or in progress with the producer, writer, director, executive producer, and others

  • Established the website and social media accounts where we are building an audience

  • Script and video promo completed

...with an executive team to make it happen!

Producer Brad Wilson has been involved in over 40 feature films and television projects and has been involved with the production of films with big names such as Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, Sean Penn, and Michael Douglas. He worked in production on films with Robert Duvall for more than a decade, and together, they always said the most important thing to making a great movie was having the right team.

Joining award-winning Producer Brad Wilson, we also have an award-winning writer, an award-winning director, an award-winning composer, and an award-winning cinematographer.

What We Do


Bringing a great story to life

Furry Fortune The Movie, LLC is proud to announce a GREAT live action film for the entire family!  We have optioned the book of the same name, developed the script and attached some of the most talented filmmakers in Hollywood to get it made. 


*Note: The storyboard below is a tool used by our director, cast, and crew to explain scenes. Furry Fortune is a live action film, not an animated film.

The MARKET


Family-friendly films featuring dogs have huge potential

”Kid fiction” films have great potential, pulling in hundreds of millions of dollars every year. It’s a huge market. Furthermore, dog movies have seen millions in ticket sales in their opening weekends for decades. And with so many avenues for watching and streaming entertainment, it’s easier than ever to reach an audience.

Notable films featuring dogs

How We Are Different


We’re offering a chance to be a part-owner of a film

As seen with “Veronica Mars” and “Super Troopers 2,” crowdfunding a film is not a new concept. However, what sets us apart is we are offering our investors an opportunity to actually share in the profits - without any “Hollywood Accounting.” If you invest in The Furry Fortune, you will own part of the film and share in any profits we make! With most films, investors simply have a right to part of the cash flow from any profits. With Furry Fortune, investors will actually own part of the company that owns the film, and share in any profits from the company itself, including the film!

THE BUSINESS MODEL


How you can make money

There are no guarantees in any investment or that any film will make a profit, but we want to take care of our investors if the film is profitable. We will use the funds raised in this offering and from any other investors or sources to make the film.  How the film generates revenues depends on its distribution. It could be released theatrically, and it could be released online or on a streaming service. Regardless of how it is released, our plan is to first pay all expenses and then any funds remaining will be profits to the company you invest in.  Our intention is to use those profits to pay all investors back their investment first on a pro rata basis until all investors are paid in full, and then any remaining profits will be split by shareholders in Furry Fortune The Movie LLC based on the percentage of shares each investor owns. The more shares you buy, the bigger portion of those remaining profits you could receive.

Transparent accounting 

Our goal is to provide transparency to our investors. When we begin production of the film, we will look to post quarterly financials for the film and our company on our website. We will not do what so many traditional Hollywood films do and use “Hollywood Accounting” to make sure certain people line their pockets, and that others do not.  For example, Forrest Gump had $660 million in ticket sales, but the film was never “profitable” because certain people and companies were paid first, so there would be no “profits” in the end.  With our film, we are striving to only pay for services needed to make, market and distribute the film, and we will disclose all of this in the quarterly financials we post for our investors. If the film makes money, you will see that in the financials, and know where every dollar goes.

You will know where money is spent, you will know who gets paid and when they get paid, and you will know what profit exists, and what part of that is yours, if the film is profitable.

The Vision


A film that highlights rescue animals

Many films about dogs have been lucrative money makers, and we hope to join their successes with “The Furry Fortune.” However, the vision for this film is one that goes beyond profits. Rescue animals are very important to us, and we plan to use this film as an opportunity to showcase what a blessing rescue animals can be in one way or another.

Why Invest


Dedicated to bringing the family together

This is a unique chance to be a shareholder of a feature film. Come be a part of this incredible opportunity to help make a Hollywood film with a positive message about the importance of family and pets!
