BREAKING THE FINANCING BARRIER – GAINING TRUST
Once an Emerging Producer has a trusted, working script the major roadblock to overcome is financing. The concept of financing has been fraught with Ponzi schemes and false promises since money was first invented. Is it any wonder that there is a general distrust of anyone asking for financing? … Let alone someone with little experience and gaining the trust of investors, studio exec’s, casting directors, completion guarantors, experienced line producers, etc.
The purpose of this article is to help you break down the barriers to financing your film simply by educating you on the terms and processes taken for granted by film industry professional film producers. Watch the short video and you’ll see what I mean.
THE FILM INDUSTRY BUSINESS CYCLE
The best way I know to understand the film industry business cycle is to break it down into the basic functions of the full business cycle. The practical categories used by Producers in their everyday work are:
- Development (Investor Confidence),
- Green Light Stage,
- Production Stage,
- Post & Audit Stage and
- The Waterfall
ONLINE COURSE – AN OVERVIEW OF THE FILM INDUSTRY
