I invested in two films entitled Blue Hill Avenue and Cahoots. Producers were Mike Erwin (Jacksonville, OR) and J. Max Kirishima (Woodland Hills, CA/Japan). Five million was raised by Rand Chortkoff (Los Angeles, CA) & minions. Blue Hill Avenue cost 1M to make. Some of the balance was supposedly used to "finish" the project to sell it to Artisan Pictures. The remaining money was pocketed. No investor ever saw a dime from this movie nor from others promoted at the time.

Sentencing - Samuel Braslau
This is an e-mail from an anonymous source with
status updates on defendants. There was a
sentencing document with regard to Samuel Braslau
attached which I will provide to anyone who requests it.
perhaps you noticed, attorney sam braslau was sentenced this week
to 85 months in the criminal case, the govt wanted 120 months but
lack of prior record helped to reduce the term. chortkoff sentencing is
delayed until sept due to "health reasons" -- I heard 3rd hand he was
recently in hospital. see attached, he is also on hook for payback of the
$1.6MM - with his prior rap sheet, chortkoff will prob get close to 10 years (?)
civil case will prob now proceed now that braslau was sentenced in the criminal case.
