Los Angeles-based Prominence Films is ramping up for an early August start in and around California on its first feature, Of Fortune And Gold.

Jared Marshall (pictured) directs from his screenplay about four Millennials on a treasure-hunting road trip across the South West.

Marshall produces with Valerie Hinkle, Samantha Bilski and Julian Klein. The executive producer is Derek Marshall.

Derek Marshall, Bilski and Klein will retain the rights and Prominence, formerly Circle That Entertainment, plans to submit to festivals and have earmarked a May 2015 strategic release.

Of Fortune And Gold is being financed 100% by private investors.

“We want to offer our investors the privilege to get a faster and bigger return on their investment, avoiding involvement of third parties,” said Jared Marshall.

“Independent distribution also allows us to control the theatrical release and push things further for the best reach to our audience.”

“What we call living ‘wild and free’ is our way of saying to be bold and to take those risks so necessary in finding and releasing your inner voice,” added Derek Marshall.
