We are offering a chance for a few visionary investors to participate in what may be the Greatest Expedition of all time. There will be risk, adventure, and hopefully a very satisfying scientific and economic return. For many centuries people have been fascinated with the prospect that the Earth might be hollow. In the 1600’s Edmund Halley put his formidable scientific credibility behind the idea. Many others have done their best to tell the story, including Jules Verne. Although he was a fiction writer, Mr. Verne might be the single most important inspiration behind the entire NASA effort to reach the Moon in 1969. But after all this history, no one has actually gone to the North Pole regions to investigate the theory that there may be an opening in the crust to an interior void of the planet.

There are three sponsorship levels:

  • Sponsor
  • Co-Sponsor
  • Endorsement

Funding Requirements

It is estimated that a minimum of $3,500,000 will be needed to conduct this history-making voyage. The data collected will fill universities for decades. The film will attract and amaze tens of millions of viewers for a genration. The awakening from learning about this new Earth frontier may change the planet forever.

The following is a preliminary general breakdown of the expenses needed to complete the development and production of the five documentaries and the voyage:

  • 5 Documentary development budget** $45,000
  • 20-Day Ship Charter (100 people food, lodging) $2,500,000
  • Logistics/equipment transfer from NY and London to Murmansk - $150,000 +
  • Productions through post - $4,000,000 +
  • Incidental expenses, fees, taxes, visas, and tariffs - $50,000
  • Administration - $200,000 +
  • Total (estimate) $6,945,000

** 5 Documentary Development Budget:

  • Budgets for 5 docs $10,000
  • Expedition Budget: $5,000

Deposit Requirement

A deposit of $750,000 must be paid to secure the ship charter. Your donations are critical to this objective. Spread the word. It only takes a few pennies per person to make this happen.

It is proposed that the company raise funds through a film studio, investors, adventurers/explorers, corporate sponsors and the sale of DVDs of The Inner Earth Expedition Part One. The sale of 50,000 of the NPIIE Pre-Doc Part One DVD would generate $850,000.

The augmentation of these funds by investors and corporate sponsors who would substantially benefit from sponsorship and product placement is a primary focus.

The following companies have been contacted for sponsorships, and/or grants:

  • Coco-Cola
  • Pepsico
  • Nike
  • Reebok
  • North Face
  • Conagra Foods
  • Sharper Image
  • Dell
  • Delta Airlines
  • Alaska Airlines
  • AT&T
  • Sprint
  • Verizon
  • Miller Brewing Company
  • Frito-Lay
  • Vision Motor Cars
  • Polaris

We strongly believe that once the development of the documentaries is funded, some of these sponsors as well as a studio and investors will come on board to support the project through funding and product placement, thus securing their unique branding and completing the funding of the Expedition and documentaries. Angels are also welcome and appreciated.

They may donate through our non-profit Foundation.
