FilmProposals Answer

Hi Mauricio:

This is a great question, thank you! There is a distinction between the documents you will use to find, attract and pitch investors and those that are legally required to actually accept money. The exchange of money and exactly how it is invested is what is heavily controlled by legal channels, and varies by state and country, including how and when the investment is defined, what the investment (money) is worth, how it is used, when it is reimbursed and much more.

When it comes to any and all agreements discussing the exchange of funds between a film maker and their investors, we encourage you to seek professional legal counsel. The very fact you are asking these questions indicates you should obtain the services of an entertainment attorney to determine the best course of action for you, your production and your investors.

However, FilmProposals does offer a variety of templates, tools and articles to educate you on the film investment process, all designed to help you minimize attorney costs. Here are some areas for you to consider:

So, how do you ensure nothing is standing between you and an interested film investor? One way is by using a Film Investor Agreement.

FilmProposals always recommends you seek professional legal counsel when it comes to any and all paperwork discussing the exchange of funds between a film maker and their investors. Many attorneys can charge you for the equivalent of a Business Plan, which you can easily do yourself with our Financing Package. However, only an attorney can craft an agreement between you and investors for the legal raising and distribution of funds.

The process of raising film financing is extraordinarily complicated and there is NO "one size fits all" film investor contract template available. Anywhere. Each situation is different and depends on the amount of funds raised, geographic location (country, state, city), film budget, investor types (active vs passive) and many more variables only an attorney can navigate on your behalf.

We wish you the best of luck on your project!

Just want to thank you for your materials and help over the past year. I could not have raised the $1.5 million or made this film without the materials you provided. The bargain of my career!

Finished my deck on Friday. Got it into a few potential investor’s hands over the weekend, and by Monday had 3 out of the 10 available memberships spoken for at $160K each. The revenue projections and film comparable services by NASH, along with the business plan and pitch deck templates were instrumental in presenting the project in such a way that financially minded potential investors could understand the movie business, the market and how my project could possibly give them a substantial ROI.

Melissa was amazing throughout the entire process. Always there to answer any questions. Couldn’t have done it without you guys. Can’t thank you enough. Best money I’ve ever spent.
