JERRY GRIMES FOR SALE

(Note: This memorandum is located on every page)

A relative (and wildly successful businessperson) once said to me, "It is cheaper to buy a business than start a business". Admittedly, I did not take this advice; only because there neither existed a business which owned my Intellectual Property nor utilized approaches to licensing that property consistent with my objectives. Ideas are easily the most valuable form of capital on earth with innovation-and-implementation serving as a very close second.  My transparency here is due in large part to a number of exciting opportunities on the horizon for my company.

As I said, ideas are extremely valuable, and I have been fortunate to either register or acquire the IP rights to various properties that I look forward to developing in the next two years.

These properties range from literary publishing rights, exclusive copyrights and music publishing rights. 

While Production Services will remain a viable (yet smaller) part of The Jerry Grimes Company, there are several major changes that will occur in the next two years that will reshape the company such as:

The acquisition of The Jerry Grimes Company resulting in the company shifting its focus from Production Services to creative development and IP licensing. This acquisition will see The Jerry Grimes Company exist as a subsidiary of its parent company commensurate with the terms and conditions to which the two parties have agreed.

As it stands, The Jerry Grimes Company does much of its work via deal memos; functioning as an Independent Contractor.

The acquisition of The Jerry Grimes Company will occur in one of three ways: (1) The parent company will acquire The Jerry Grimes Company outright to include the company's entire IP catalog to include unpublished and unproduced properties, equipment, merchandise and all web properties i.e. JerryGrimes.com, social media accounts, email accounts and all related online entities (2) The Jerry Grimes Company will become an incorporated entity within its parent company as the parent company serves as the majority shareholder. (3) The Jerry Grimes Company will be restructured (which could include incorporation under a new company name, relocation to a different state within the continental United States and a reassignment/removal of company officers and employees should any officers or employees remain with the company at the time of its acquisition and restructuring.

What all of this means, is that I am incredibly overextended with several commitments both within and outside of The Jerry Grimes Company. I am looking forward to lessening these demands by developing a cooperative partnership that will allow me far more time to create, produce, license and sell both Intellectual Property and merchandise.

The goal of this company will ultimately be two-fold: The creation of content and The distribution of said content toward the goal of profitability.

This means within the next two years, the look of this site (and even the location of this site) will increasingly reflect an exciting new stage in the growth of The Jerry Grimes Company! 

In the meantime, enjoy these older titles as there will be new and exciting things to come! - JG

I have been producing films, arranging music, illustrating comics and telling stories for over twenty years.

Yet, a number of important and meaningful obligations of the past decade precluded me from creating, writing and producing as much as I would have liked.

So my goal (and that of those with whom I work) is to provide a varying-array of content to include production services, lectures and the establishment of innovative platforms.

By creating content that transcends different barriers my goal is to produce interesting work.

Whether it is profiling a fascinating person, business or idea or developing feature-length projects and graphic novels, my aim is to create interesting work after an overlong hiatus from doing what I enjoy.

I have been able to produce creative work for two decades due in very large part to a group of talented friends and supporters such as (but not limited to) Luther W. Truesdell, Jr., Marc Thompson, Keith Mitchell, Aaron P. Clark, Michael A. Huggins, Jr., Paul Sanchez, Jae Jacob, Keysha Nicole, Will Best, David YewdallLeander T. Sales, Steven L. Jones, Sam Pollard, Betsy Pollock, Richard Clabaugh, Jessica Figueroa, Mosheh Yisrael and Dave Csinos!

Some of my past work includes...

Death of a Preacher 

(CAVE Entertainment 2005)

 

My first-ever feature film was a docudrama that featured a fictionalized version of myself in a semi-autobiographical fashion entitled Death of a Preacher.

The film was produced by a production company I co-founded called the Camorra AudioVisual Entertainment Group, or more affectionately, "CAVE Entertainment".

CAVE Entertainment was composed of Luther W. Truesdell, author Aaron P. Clark, Michael A. Huggins,  Jr., Paul Sanchez, Marc Thompson, Ed Greenfield, Larry Best, Joshua J. Best, Travares Reid, Rashad Worthy, Kenton Worthy and Kristal Birch.

Handsome Johnny

(CAVE Entertainment 2008)

As my graduate studies allowed me less and less time to produce films, by 2007 I was producing a number of shorter projects such as Handsome Johnny starring  Andrew Leggett, Simeon J. Hutchinson and Chasity Scriven.  

Trial-N-Era

(Cave Entertainment/Grimescorp, Inc. 2007)

While simultaneously filming Handsome Johnny, I produced a short animated comic/documentary entitled Trial-N-Era. While this project was left essentially unrealized, I have been importing many concepts from this project into a new graphic novel I am currently illustrating.
