Not Currently Funding |Offering: Reg CF
Testament began its journey as a movie (now called Testament: The Parables Retold) but is now being developed into a multi-season TV series retelling the Book of Acts narrative. The already completed movie is included in this offering.
It's early stages but we are currently planning five seasons of eight episodes each for Testament.
Testament will initially be made available on the Angel Studios platform. Our hope is that it will then be made available on other streaming platforms and TV stations. The original film, Testament: The Parables Retold which serves as the inspiration for the series is already available on the Angel Studios app as well as other TVOD sites.
Shows and films generate income from distribution, whether it’s from customers of streaming sites, theatrical ticket sales, DVD rentals and sales, fees from TV stations, and international distributors purchasing the rights. Testament is currently distributed globally through Angel Studios' streaming service. Down the road, it will potentially be distributed on television through multiple channels, other streaming platforms, and DVDs as well as generating revenue through other ancillary products.
Yes. Testament may be a reimagining of the narrative of the Book of Acts but it seeks to stay true and faithful to the spirit of the text. Every person involved in the core team creating this show is a believer in Christ and is committed to biblical truth found in the Old and New Testament. We also have a team of Bible-believing experts consulting on the project.
Angel Studios is our distribution partner. They are the studio platform responsible for bringing you The Chosen, Dry Bar Comedy, The Tuttle Twins, and more.
We believe Testament will appeal to believers and non-believers alike. The tone and style of the show will likely particularly resonate with those in the Millenial and Gen-Z generations.
No. The Testament series will focus on the accounts in the Book of Acts and the Epistles starting from the Day of Pentecost. The retellings of the parables (The Parables Retold) were for use solely in the original feature film and will not feature in the series.
Testament will be tonally similar to the original feature film (excluding the parables short films), a mixture of Action/Adventure filled with Drama.
Testament Pictures LLC is selling up to 5,000,000 Preferred Units in this crowdfunding round for $1.00/Unit.
Yes. As an owner of Testament, you are entitled to your share of profits if Testament has earned enough profit both to create future episodes and make distributions of available funds as determined by the Manager of Testament in his sole discretion.

Yes. Testament Pictures LLC already has a revenue-generating product in the original movie Testament: The Parables Retold. As an investor of Testament, you will also be entitled to the profits generated from the movie. Please see the offering documents for more information about specific rights for this production.
No. Testament Pictures LLC is a legal entity that is a separate and distinct company from Angel Studios, Inc. Investments made are in Testament Pictures LLC, not Angel Studios, Inc.
No. Investment in early-stage companies/shows is extremely risky, and you should consult with your independent financial advisor before making a decision on whether you want to invest. In any case, you should never invest more than you could afford to lose!
Unlike securities purchased on a stock market, such as the NYSE or Nasdaq, there is no public market for units in Testament. Therefore, it is highly unlikely you will be able to SELL your investment. However, you may receive distributions of cash from Testament if Testament has earned enough profit both to create future episodes and make distributions of available funds as determined by the Manager of Testament in his sole discretion. NOTE: as a Preferred Unit holder, you are eligible to earn up to 120% of your initial capital contribution before the Common Unit holders receive a distribution of available funds.
Investments will be on a first come, first serve basis. We cannot guarantee that there will be opportunities to purchase additional units in the future.
We don't see that happening, but in the event that it does, all the money invested will be returned to the investors.
Every country has its own securities laws. We are offering this Reg CF round under the laws of the US and so we know what we need to do to allow US citizens to invest and be compliant with those laws. We don't have the resources to be able to identify and comply with the securities laws in other jurisdictions, so we limit investments to US citizens.
There is no subscription plan to buy securities and all purchases of our securities are a one time payment. Subscribers are simply other investors that have purchased the securities. A "subscription agreement" is a legal term for the contract between an investor (you) and the issuer (us), it details the offering of securities and explains your rights and responsibilities when deciding to purchase our securities.
Because you’re making an investment and not a donation. The escrow agent is subject to banking regulations when they hold your money, and ownership is tracked by social security number.
Our ability to offer our units to the public is possible due to recent legislation known as the Jobs Act. This same law limits the amount that investors can purchase based on your annual revenue and net worth. There is no limit, however, if you are an accredited investor. If you have additional questions regarding this limit, feel free to ask in our Q&A tool at the bottom of the main page of this offering.
Yes, you can now invest from one of these entities. Just select that option when moving through the checkout process.
Yes, but only for those investors investing larger amounts (due to the higher processing fee) of greater than $50,000.
Yes, we are happy to accept ACH transactions.
As part of Regulation CF, we are required to file annual reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (which will be available on this page). We will also send out regular investor updates via email to let you know all the latest news of the company.
You may invest as many times as you would like until you reach your investment limit under Reg CF.
