Vivek, thank you so much for answering the last one!!!
I have received another couple of questions on the movie ~ I think the answer to the first one is "TEG / Starpolish" and the second one is "yes," but I'm not 100 percent on either. So, if it's not too much trouble ~ He asks: (Direct quote)
Perhaps I have not really searched for it in the right places and have not found it, but I would like to ask you: What is the name of the production company/studio that is producing "The Fifth Beatle" movie.
Does this motion picture movie have enough budget to cover all areas that it possibly would capture major award nominations?

Sorry for the delayed response-- it's been busy and I haven't been able to check the boards as often as I'd like!
Though we've enjoyed real studio interest, we're pursuing an independent route with the production of the film-- so we're not seeking a studio attachment. We are keeping an open mind to the idea, however.
My company TEG (Tiwary Entertainment Group - http://www.tegltd.com) is one of the producers, and we have a few independent producers also onboard. See the "Crew" section at www.fifthbeatlemovie.com for a list of our current Production Executives. We're also in conversations with other producers and production houses, and will likely add another production company (perhaps U.K.-based) at some point in the future.
We absolutely have the financial means for a first-class cast, crew, and production. Again, visit the "Crew" section at www.fifthbeatlemovie.com and you will see Academy-award and Emmy-award winning people already attached. Though I must suggest that the question is a little misguided-- many films acquire award kudos without having large budgets! Recent examples of low-budget Academy-award winners, off the top of my head, include "Capote", "Crash", "Juno" and many many more... You don't need to be "Titanic" or "Gladiator" to win awards!
