Executive Producers with Private Equity and a passion for projects with social impact.

The filmmakers seek to secure production financing from private investors. This film will be financed with 100% Equity.

  • ROI/ Waterfall : Investors will recoup 120% of their investment before any profits are distributed. Then deferred payments will be paid. After that point, all of the net profits will be split on a 50/50 basis, with 50% being distributed to the investors on a pari passu basis and the remaining 50% going to the producing entity. Any back end points to talent and crew will come from the producers' share.

  • CREDIT: In addition to a share of equity we're offering opening title Executive Producer credits on the movie, IMDB, and all artwork associated to the movie such as posters and DVD covers, etc. 

  • The producer credits come without any obligations, responsibilities, or requirements to the investor - other than the investment itself.

  • With the strength of our script, actors and crew in comparison to similar films of this nature we estimate we will make our money back. What will push us into profits comes from our targeted marketing that will take advantage of the story behind the film.
