Question 3. Apart from his mother and father, who were the mystery mentors behind the rise of Jefford Curre', and why did they commit to his vision?
Before entering the movie business, the elusive Jefford Curre’ lived a very dangerous life. He found himself managing multi-million dollar temptations, in the deadly intervention of major narcotics smuggling operations that traffic through the outer limits of the Bahamas. Like a “Bond style” bounty hunter, running real life intervention missions for the Bahamas government, he spent more than 5-1/2 years at the center of non-stop classified action. As a highly trusted direct entry specialist he has more than 37 off the record missions to his credit. Jefford Curre' was raised under monk style conditions by strict, but loving Christian parents on the 7 by 21 mile island of New Providence, Nassau Bahamas. At the age of eighteen he was discreetly recruited to the front lines of law endorsement', catapulted into a culture where the take down of murderous drug criminals, sophisticated money launderers, virtuous hot women and disgruntled weapons experts were the order of an average day.
At the age of four his box office journey began while out to the shopping center with his mother. It was the first time he had seen a moving picture. He was so intrigued by the fun the little people were having inside the T.V. set, he ran around the back of the big T.V. to see if he could get inside. After inquiring, his mother told him that they were movie stars and movie stars don't go to heaven. His family was a part of a strict religious order who in time had modernized their views toward cinema and became one of his greatest supporters.
Question 4. How did Jefford Curre' invent the Bahamas Film Industry?
It's ironic that Jefford Curre' would end up as the pioneer of the Bahamas Film Industry. Before his first trip to America as a young adult, pursuing film studies, he had not even set foot inside a movie theater. By 1990, the Bahamas was a nation trapped in the success of a volatile tourist trade. It was becoming more obvious that new innovation would be needed to secure future job market. The thought of indigenous people operating their own movie company was laughable. Jefford Curre' saw the vision of the future and a clear shot for his people to rise toward real economic prosperity. He requested his parents to grant him his share of the family's inheritance in advance.
In 1991 on a highly organized shoestring budget he set up Megavision Pictures, a movie industry research and development office in Guanahani Village, Nassau Bahamas. The huge sign board on the wall indicated that a new way of entrepreneurial thinking was brewing among the locals. By the summer of 1994, with the help of visionary resort operators, he incorporated Megavision Pictures Limited and moved his base onto Paradise Island, occupying two locations under closed studio conditions.
Question 5. How did Jefford Curre' crisis become his biggest opportunity?
Like all pioneers his obstacles were endless. The bank demanded to hold the family's $80,000 property in order to give a mere $15,000 loan, which was a far cry from the original request of $30,000. Then they surprisingly stretched the loan distribution over a very long period, in small increments. It was an advanced predatory maneuver beyond the experience of the young entrepreneur. It created a dilemma that left him minus the family's property and literally the clothes on his back. He was facing major embarrassment with a nervous wife in one arm and a crying baby in the other.
The Bahamas leading man of action was facing his darkest day in civilian life. It was a situation that should have destroyed him, but instead motivated his interest in the study of financial engineering. Employing savvy negotiation skills, it was not long before he was able to attract a network of innovative goal sharing partners to assist in the organization of the Megavision Kingdom Academy. An in-house home school that was designed especially to enable him to take the entire family on tours. Dirty diaper changes, production shoots, trail blazing mountain blizzards and often breakfast, lunch and dinner in completely different cities. These are the conditions that molded the office of Jefford Curre' into an unbeatable force in the new world of Box-office excitement. Later as the children grew beyond toddler stage, he redesigned the operation to equip entry level box-office entrepreneurs with the skills and perspective needed to avoid or overcome financial challenges and succeed at navigating full-time careers.
Jefford Curre' changed the economic outlook of an entire nation and raise the bar of hope for many. It did not take long before everyone realized that making movies was something they could succeed at, all they needed was a full time commitment through hell or high water. An army of locals now storm the indigenous cinema landscape. Jefford Curre' ingenious box-office innovations has been featured in a wide variety of major publications including the Wall Street Journal (on.wsj.com/9IskoF ), Stars in Paradise and USA Today.
