BUSINESS LANGUAGE OF PRODUCING FILMS
Emerging Producers must separate themselves from the crowd as someone who knows the “Business Language” of the investors, Major Studios, Completion Guarantors, Distributors, etc. You can’t be confused with the clutter of people who “have a great idea”, but can’t express their ideas in a business like manner.
The purpose of this article is to help you take a giant step towards your goal as a Producer, and of ultimately financing for your film.
By breaking down the business cycle of film into:
- Development (Investor Confidence),
- Green Light Stage,
- Production Stage,
- Post & Audit Stage and
- The Waterfall
you will be able to more confidently discuss the film and television production business from a business perspective with potential investors and completion guarantors throughout North America.
