When father of eight, Josh Malone, invents a genius a way to fill 100 water balloons in 60 seconds, his invention "Bunch O Balloons" becomes an overnight success on Kickstarter and an international viral hit! Scrambling to get his idea to market and bring financial security to his family, Josh applies for a US Patent. Suddenly, his plans of success are blindsided when his genius idea is stolen by a big company before he can make his first dime! Thrust into a battle to save his invention he uncovers the shocking truth that our patent system is weakening, property rights are at risk and American Innovation is dying! Interviews with experts like former Attorney General, Ed Meese, Inventor and Congressional Representative, Thomas Massie, Antonin Scalia Law Professor and IP expert Adam Mossoff provide shocking information about the state of the weakening US Patent system. Other inventors share their stories of theft, patent invalidation and difficulty finding investors for their patented innovations. Ken Blackwell, Leoard Leo, Dr. Matthew Spalding and conservative leader Dan Schneider all provide valuable insights into how the current system is harming Americans and the american innovation economy. With theft of US intellecutal property by China topping $600 billion per year, other countries are profiting off the ideas and labor of american inventors. Big tech companies are finding it easier and cheaper to infringe on patents rather than pay the patent owners. With an administrative tribunal pulling patents back from inventors, there is no safe place to bring an invention to the marketplace in America and our innovation is going overseas. The United States once led the world in new medications, new technology, and new ideas. American inventors and their inventions touched the lives of people in every country, of every race and every language. But our weakening Patent system is INVALIDATING their property rights – and with it, their incentive to create. Money and inventions are now going to other countries, and with them go jobs and a strong economy. Building something and owning it IS the American Dream, but without a strong patent system, the American Dream will be invalidated!
Ground Floor Video pulled out all the stops bringing onboard international film and television star Nick Searcy to host their brand new documentary film The Border States of America. You may know him as Art Mullen on the FX original Justified, but as a California native Nick Searcy is one celebrity who takes the issues to heart, "If you want open borders, why don't you want open front doors? Don't you care who's coming in and out of your house? Then why don't you care who is coming in and out of your country?" says Searcy.
The October 16, 2014, Los Angeles premiere of The Border States of America is the 4th nationally-syndicated documentary created by the Woodstock, Georgia based film studio.The Border States of America graphically tells the honest story of what’s actually taking place on the U.S./Mexican border. Ground Floor Video crew members traveled hundreds of miles in helicopters, trucks, vans and cars with local sheriffs and Border Patrol agents along the Rio Grande to capture the reality of America’s first line of defense. The result is unlike anything heard from Washington, D.C.
“In The Border States of America, Ground Floor Video has put together a film every American needs to see,” says Executive Producer and Director Luke Livingston. “GFV not only tells the story in pictures that will astound viewers, but tells the truth through the words of the law enforcement officials and the ranchers who live with the realities of our porous border and its consequences every day.”
In just under an hour, GFV’s The Border States of America dispels any preconceptions that America’s southern border is secure. Countless illegal aliens are coming across the border every day. Drug smuggling and human trafficking are the rule rather than the exception. Would-be immigrants from dozens of nationalities are paying “coyotes” to smuggle them into the U.S. Once they’re across, they disperse all over the country. Often, they bring with them dangerous cultures and even diseases.
As the documentary points out, because of the ability of illegal immigrants to move freely around the country, all states in America are, in actuality, border states.
From its Georgia studio, Ground Floor Video has also produced nationally-distributed documentaries dealing with the issues of healthcare reform, black conservatism, and civic engagement. “Many of the projects we undertake are either specific to a product or cast a spotlight on issues pertinent to an audience segment,” says Luke Livingston, Owner and Director of GFV. “The Border States of America focuses on a subject that affects all Americans now and in the future.”
In Runaway Slave, which was released in theaters this summer, Rev. C.L. Bryant journeys across America to find answers. A one-time NAACP local chapter president, Rev. Bryant discovers that by buying into the entitlement mindset of "progressives," the black community has traded one form of tyranny for another.
Using leading black conservatives as "conductors," Rev. Bryant believes it is time for a new Underground Railroad to help liberate all Americans from the Government plantation that has left the black community dealing with a new form of slavery: entitlements.
"Why are we still thinking we are not free at last? What ideas are keeping us down?" Rev. Bryant asks. "For too long, we have been depending on other people for our success. We have to pursue our happiness; our happiness is not provided to us. If we are relying on someone else for our well-being, that in itself is a form of slavery."
From our nation's capital and freedom's birthplace, to the dens of slavery and Jim Crow, to wherever a light for liberty is shining, this runaway slave looks to bring hope to the oppressed. Among the leaders he talks with along the way are Dr. King's niece, Dr. Alveda King; former presidential candidate Herman Cain; Congressman Allen West; economist and author Dr. Thomas Sowell; talk-show host and author Glenn Beck; the late Andrew Breitbart. We also meet a new generation of young freedom fighters who are on the front lines of change!
Rev. Bryant's conclusion? It's time to run. "Run away from economic slavery. Run toward the blessings of liberty. Let us remain strong in this fight. Run away from socialism; run away from progressivism. And if you get tired, America … run harder!" Purchase the film on DVD today.
"The size and scope and reach of government is the new plantation! All patriots must watch Runaway Slave! "
"It's time conservatives take on Liberal Hollywood. You must see Runaway Slave. It's great!" "
