Film finance has always been a complex area of filmmaking, with successful efforts to simplify its processes (or make easier understanding of them) always welcomed.
Some say that the simplest way to raise money for a film is through direct, straightforward investment by one person. However this can often (if not invariably) involve higher investor risk, with much ingenuity and effort therefore being applied (in general) in attempting to reduce investor risk in the business, resulting conversely in greater amounts of complexity (e.g. pre-sales or debt finance, bank finance, co-productions, tax driven finance, hedge fund or slate financing, gap finance, onerous subsidies, facilities house finance, sundry placements and sponsorships).
A select group of panellists has been invited to illustrate the successful strategies used in approaching film finance in the UK:
- Carlo Dusi (Head of Finance and Commercial Affairs at Scott Free Productions)
- Paul Brett (Director at Prescience)
- Nigel Thomas (Producer/Founder of Matador Pictures)
- Miriam Segal (Managing Director of Good Films)
