FILM INDUSTRY OVERVIEW
Unlike any other industry, the film business is built almost entirely on passion and momentum. These two elements, though hard to quantify, may dictate the life of a project. In other words, being on the brink of a greenlight creates much more tension and excitement than even closing a high-rise in Manhattan, because it materially impacts the filmmakers’ longstanding dreams. As such, acting as the catalyst that sparks production creates immense leverage.
Investing in an independent film with a smaller production budget offers the chance to make more profit with less risk than a film with a large budget, where overheads need to be recouped before investors will see a return.
By investing in the movie, it is important to know in which recoupment position is placed your investment. We always choose the first position in the recoupment waterfall, plus adding 20 % premium.
Our team members have been working with such kind of companies as Universal, Sony studios, Sy-Fy, Endemol, Millennium Films and many more. The films our team members participated as Producers, Directors or Executive Producers has attracted a stellar cast including Al Pacino, Jeremy Irons, Gerald Butler, Josh Hartnett, Woody Harrelson, Demi Moore, Billy Bob-Thornton, Ron Perlman, Kevin McKidd and others.
HOW SHOWBIZ WILL CHANGE THE FILM INDUSTRY?
The knowledge and experience our team acquired while developing and producing for more than 20 years will demonstrate our singular ability to utilize technologically based, next generation development to fulfil the new demand for film and television projects budgeted in this range that the studios rarely produce but still require to balance out their distribution schedule. While our current slate of projects is ready to go and ideally suited to fill this niche, we will gradually add films that will be budgeted at $60,000,000 and above, created specifically for partnership with the studios at the pre-production stage.
Furthermore, new easy to use and visionary SHOWBIZ platform will empower its contributors to became a part of film production industry thru attractive incentive program. It will be the biggest crowd wisdom community platform for film producers and will definitely change the history course of film industry.
