Kevin Christoffersen will be presenting a broad overview on feature film financing in a post-covid world, that will illustrate different models including crowdfunding to establish a development budget, outreach strategies to private equity investors, debt financing components with bank representatives and establishing state tax credit incentives.


Kevin’s presentation will then delve into all of the elements needed within your package to make it investor-ready for the official pitching process to take shape and increase more viable opportunities. Case study feature films at various budget levels will be broken down showing how they each employed different financing techniques.


Other topics being presented include pre-sales estimates (minimum guarantee) for higher budget levels, section 168 protecting investor interests, profiling of specific investors, pre-determining a distribution strategy and ways and means to establish a network of connections within the business side of the industry.
