The Site for Independent Film Financing
Will the FilmProposals Products Work in the UK or Other Countries?
I'm very interested in your packs, as I am a fairly new producer packaging up numerous projects. I am based in the UK so I'm concerned that your site is purely geared to the U.S, as I see everything is in dollars etc.
Hi and thanks for your question. Most of our Film Financing products are compatible with any country.
1) Financial Template - In terms of using US Dollars as our unit of measure, that is a 1 second change in Excel (just change $ to £ - or any currency in the world). This does not affect any calculations or formulas, which are mostly the same worldwide, and therefore the Financial Template should work anywhere.
2) Financing Manual - There are a few areas of the Financing Manual that apply only to the US, such as anything having to do with SEC laws or the JOBS Act. Every country is different with regards to fundraising and securities laws. All the ways to find investors, how to attract and secure them, how to pitch them apply worldwide.
3) Business Plan Template - the majority of the Business Plan Template will apply worldwide. One area that will need tweaking is the US MPAA Market Statistics (you will either delete these and only keep worldwide numbers or find those for your country).
Hope that helps!

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 -- and for $99? The bargain of my career!
This is perfect! I have potential investors but I had no idea how to prepare a professional investment package to present to them. (I'm an artiste', not a business person. :) ) The information is clear and easy to understand, and Melissa is very prompt in answering emails.
When I came across the Business Plan Tools and the Finance Guide, I felt like I could stop searching for the pot of gold...I’d found it. In one place, with clear, easy to follow materials and spreadsheets, my questions were answered.
Hi Melissa! I purchased Package #3 a couple of days ago, and I feel like I'm taking a crash course in film financing. So far, what I've read and learned has been invaluable. Thank you!
I've made short films before, but this is my first feature, and the first film I've tried raising money for. This template, actually the whole package, has been invaluable and well worth the money I spent on it. So much information is packed into what I got that I'm almost dizzy from it all.
