United States Motion Picture Company

The United States Motion Picture Company is a new indie film company that makes content for all platforms. Our first film was the witty and warmhearted family comedy “I’ll Be Next Door for Christmas,” which was released worldwide in 2018. Our company was the first in the United States to successfully raise money for a feature film using Equity Crowdfunding. Producer David Jay Willis was besieged by other companies wanting to know his methods, so he’s releasing an online course on exactly how he did it this spring. Here we are on IMDb.
