Event description

Description

Knowing how to raise money from investors is a critical skill for all creative entrepreneurs, and it is particularly important for those producing media projects. In this event, which will pay particular attention to how to fund a film, attendees will learn:

  • Why most filmmakers use a Regulation D Private Placement or the new Regulation CF exemption to raise money from investors.
  • Why filmmakers need to follow the laws that govern accepting money from investors, and what happens when they don't.
  • What investment documents need to be created before a filmmaker accepting money from investors.
  • What seasoned film investors are looking for when they review film packages.
  • How to know if the creative elements of a media project are strong enough to lead to commecial success before a film is funded and produced.
  • What new tax laws favor media production companies and their investors.

When creative entrepreneurs know how to raise money using a standard Reglation D Private Placement or the new Regulation CF, they are equipped to build a wide variety of enterprises. They are also equipped to be effective collaborators or key employees in new entertainment industry enterprises because they know the difference between a solid, practical, profitable enterprise and one that simply doesn't have what it takes to thrive.
