How To Finance An Independent Film – Forbes

Note where the writer mentions;

“would be liable for misrepresentation and/or violating other securities regulations” which is the case when you sell equity without securities.

Note where the writer mentions combination of financing;

100% equity is a myth. As a general rule only 35% of feature films are equity and the rest is pre-sales, debt, gap, bridge, tax credits and later comes P&A.

Note where the writer mentions crowdfunding is expensive to do;

It is nothing new and tries to mimic DPO’s. Most crowdfunding is just donations. If crowdfunding is actual securities equity it requires investors to be accredited and DPO’s or Direct Public Offerings do not require this. DPO’s have successfully existed for decades.

Note where the writer mentions Deferred payments = working for free.
