We specialize in producing and financing prestige feature films for the international market.
movie production company

Over the past 10 years, we have produced 5 feature films and 4 long running TV series that have sold in over 100 territories, which has given us great relationships with the best sales and distribution companies in the world.

Our budget ranges from $5m to $30m, and we are able to bring equity, tax rebate finance, and loan finance in house. The net result of this is that we are able to contribute between 30-50% of the finance budget for a film that we produce, and are typically willing to be the cornerstone financier that makes films happen. Our combination of creative producing and finance skills make us extraordinarily committed to the films we take on.
