Thinking of investing? Why not invest in the movies!
Investing in motion pictures is one of the best investments you can make. Now with the explosion of Video on Demand (VOD) subscriptions changing the way people access their films, distribution is now easier than ever before and can continue to generate a profit for a lifetime!
The United Kingdom has a great heritage of filmmaking and talent, ever since the world’s first moving picture was shot in Leeds in 1888. Today, many independent British companies offer film investment opportunities, allowing them and their product to remain truly independent.
Utilising smaller budgets than their major studio counterparts, investment in independent film offers the potential for more profits with substantially less risk. With more and more opportunities for home media viewing, films do not need an expensive box office run for the investor to recoup the original investment.
Benefits of investing in film
Investing in a motion picture can bring more benefits than just a return on your investment. Depending on the project, and the amount invested in the picture, investors could experience;
Film Set Visits
You will probably be assigned with a ‘runner’ from the production company, whose job it will be to look after you and let you know what’s going on.
You will be able to watch the goings on, interact with the talent on the set and see your investment in ‘action!’
Be an extra!
You will have the opportunity to be cast as a background actor or extra.
Punctuality, reliability and the ability to take direction are important if you want to experience the thrill of appearing in front of the camera.
Private film screenings often occur before the official release of the picture. To show off the film to its best advantage, special preview screenings are routinely held in low seat-count theatres offering high-quality projection and sound equipment.
The guest list for a private screening typically are very exclusive.
