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.

UPDATE - RAND CHORTKOFF
I just received an email from my anonymous
source that is rather shocking regarding
Rand Chortkoff. Apparently, it is true that
he passed away from liver disease today.
Here is the email I received:
Hello again on May 5
its being reported that Chortkoff passed away this
morning. Liver disease--- needed a transplant,
did not happen. I have crossed check, appears
to be accurate. in the blues scene in LA, he
is being lauded for so many great contributions
to the art, blah blah--- sad---people are
clueless where all that money came from.
If I hear anything else, will advise but appears this
