The film industry is a $36.4 billion global market. Despite this fact, amidst a thriving industry, approximately 90% of all movies produced fail to make profit. This shocking figure can sometimes be a result of creative accounting strategies employed by large production house looking to mitigate corporate taxation. However, for the independent filmmaker, there is often a sound, realistic explanation for this phenomenon.
Simply put, films are the dreams of the creative and can often be subject to losses due to poor business planning. So, while there is a known formula for avoiding film-failure, it is this lack of financial acumen and near-sighted focus on only the creative side of the film which drives that statistic. This has generated a need-driven demand for film finance experts to provide financial support and diligence to the independent film market.
As we are aware that, most of producers have limited resources to access to the required financial on time. And, the problem with traditional financial institutions specializing in the film business is that they have constrictive requirements, higher minimums, and take longer time to close a financing.
