Where did the money come from?

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
CENTRAL DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
CASE NO.
CV-00-07471 LGB (BQRX)

           2      Q    BY MR. QUISENBERRY:  During that meeting was the

 

           3           next step in the efforts to produce this "end times"

 

           4           project discussed?

 

           5      A    My father rarely makes it that easy.  He

 

           6           probably said something to the effect that the board of

 

           7           directors would meet and contact you concerning the next

 

           8           steps.

 

           9      Q    Did you discuss how much money might be needed

 

          10          to make this movie?

 

          11      A    You cannot determine the amount of money needed

 

          12          to make a movie until the script is finished.

 

          13      Q    Did you tell that to your father?

 

          14      A    He's been making movies a lot longer than I

 

          15          have.  I'm sure he knew that already.

 

          16      Q    So what was the next steps in the production

 

          17          that were discussed at that meeting?

 

          18      MR. RAWLS:  Objection, assumes that next steps were

 

          19          discussed.  Assumes facts not in evidence.

 

          20      THE WITNESS:  I remember the overall feeling of the

 

          21          meeting being positive from what he had read.  That's what

 

          22          I remember about the meeting.

 

          23      Q    BY MR. QUISENBERRY:  And he said that he was

 

          24          going to discuss something with the board of directors?

 

          25      A    It would be standard practice for him to say, "I

 

                                                                 84

 

           1           will discuss this with the board of directors."

 

           2      Q    And what was your understanding of what he was

 

           3           going to discuss with the board of directors at that

 

           4           point?

 

           5      MR. RAWLS:  Objection, calls for speculation. 

 

           6           Assumes facts not in evidence.

 

           7      MR. COATE:  Join.

 

           8      THE WITNESS:  Whether he thought that this was a

 

           9           project that fit the formulas and goals and desire of the

 

          10          TBN Network. 

 

          11      Q    BY MR. QUISENBERRY:  Was there any discussion at

 

          12          that meeting with regard to who that target market for

 

          13          this movie would be?

 

          14      MR. RAWLS:  Objection, assumes facts not in evidence

 

          15          and "target market" is vague and ambiguous.

 

          16      MR. QUISENBERRY:  Let me restate that and strike it.

 

          17      Q    Was there any discussion who the target audience

 

          18          for this movie project would be?

 

          19      MR. RAWLS:  Objection, assumes facts not in evidence. 

 

          20          And the phrase "target audience" is vague. 

 

          21      MR. COATE:  Join.

 

          22      THE WITNESS:  No.

 

          23      Q    BY MR. QUISENBERRY:  Was there any discussion

 

          24          during that first meeting with regard to who might direct

 

          25          such a movie?

 

                                                                 85

 

          1      A    I don't recall taking the meeting beyond the

 

           2           initial positive feeling of what he had read.

 

           3      Q    What was the next step in the production after

 

           4           that meeting?

 

           5      A    The next significant step would have been news

 

           6           of their desire to fund the script, based upon the

 

           7           treatment that they had read.

 

           8      Q    I'm sorry.  You said their decision to fund?

 

           9      THE WITNESS:  I don't remember what I said.

 

          10      MR. RAWLS:  He said "their desire to fund."

 

          11      Q    BY MR. QUISENBERRY:  Oh, their desire to fund. 

 

          12          When you say, "significant step" were there any other

 

          13          steps in between that first meeting with your father and

 

          14          Barton Green, and the news of their decision to fund the

 

          15          screenplay?

 

          16      MR. RAWLS:  Objection.  As we said, the news of their

 

          17          desire to fund a script.

 

          18      THE WITNESS:  There could have been some phone

 

          19          conversation that would have led up to the news of their

 

          20          desire to fund a script.  But I don't recall anything but

 

          21          the bigger points in relationship to those early stages.

 

          22      Q    BY MR. QUISENBERRY:  Was there any work done on

 

          23          the treatment that you know of between that first meeting

 

          24          with your father and Barton Green and the news of their

 

          25          desire to fund --

 

                                                                 86

 

           1      A    No.

 

           2      Q     -- the screenplay?

 

           3      A    No.

 

           4      Q    How did you hear of their desire to fund the

 

           5           screenplay?

 

           6      A    I don't recall. A    No.
