Film Proposals Film Financing Products

Are Your Products Compatible with Apple/MAC?

  • The Film Financing Manual a PDF document, and should be compatible with all systems and devices and legible in iBooks.
  • The Film Financial Projections Template is compatible with all PCs and Macs using Excel.
  • The Business Plan Template is a Microsoft Word document. To date, we have not had any issues with MAC or PC Compatibility.

Why are the products downloadable and not in Print?

The Business Plan Template and Financial Projections Template must be used on a computer as they won't be helpful in Print. At this time, we do not offer the Film Financing Manual in print, as most of our customers prefer to have it on their computer and save the shipping costs. We may re-evaluate this again in the future.

I ordered one of your products, but did not receive the link to download?

The product(s) are not as expected, how do I get a refund?
