[Review] Film Investor Package is Well Organized and Professional Looking

Film Investor Financing TemplatesI've just spent 20 minutes going through the materials I purchased with Package #3 and I already know it is going to be a huge help in getting me to the next stage in my producing career. I can't wait to dive in and start creating my first business plan.

**Update***

I’ve now worked with it for a few weeks and thought I’d let you know what I think.

I liked it a lot. The format is well organized and professional looking and much of the text is worthwhile.

I also chatted with your rep on line before hand and they answered my questions very well which allowed me to move forward with the purchase with confidence.

It is a pity the the MPAA reports are not available until April.

Thanks for putting together what appears to be a very useful package, and the website has a ton of great info too. - Tim

[Review] Both FilmProposals Site and Business Tools Are Extremely Helpful

Independent Film Financing Projections

I am still in the midst of writing our business plan, and keep referring back to FilmProposals after purchasing the Film Financial Projects template and Film Business Plan template. Not only do both continue to be the right tools (after researching A LOT and seeing others out there), but the website resources are extremely helpful as well.

I like having the template to follow, but also know that film business plans are different than regular business plans. That makes the task seem very daunting, especially gathering the financial data needed to plead your case to investors. By far that is the toughest part, so having the financial template makes it a lot less scary to tackle.
