FILM FINANCE MODELS

In the 5 years prior to law school, I was responsible for creating financial plans for various dotcom companies, which were then used to seek financing from venture capitalists. In the past 8 years as an entertainment attorney, I have created a myriad of film financing plans as both an entertainment attorney and as an executive in various film production companies, which has resulted in a comprehensive financing model in MS Excel that I am making available to my clients.

If you are in the process of building your business plan for a film project, and need a sophisticated financing model to prove to executive producers and production partners that your project is real and you have the requisite knowledge to make the film project happen, my financing model is available for rent or purchase.

  • In the rent scenario (i.e. for one film), I consult with you either in person or over the phone and we walk through the particulars of your film, which I then use to modify my financing model and print out a static version of the model for you to use in your business plan. The model is not alterable by the client, but is the full and comprehensive model.
  • In the purchase scenario (i.e. for a slate of films, or for an ongoing production client), I consult with you either in person or over the phone as to how to manipulate the fully downloadable and customizable model for each of your films. You are then free to use the model over and over for each film you would like to produce, and can run variable financing scenarios per film.

The following are the different pages within the model:

  • Different financing milestones & structures (i.e. full financing, development financing, P&A financing, etc.)
  • Overall "waterfall" summary of different distribution channel revenues
  • Comparable film financial performance
  • Weekly box office patterns & averages for comparables
  • Theatrical release breakdown, if appropriate
  • DVD release breakdown
  • VOD, PPV, streaming & self-distribution breakdown
  • Appropriate P&A spend breakdown, by ad media type, distribution media, market, and of screens
  • Financing structure breakdown, including equity, tax credits, gap loans, presales, sales fees & discounts
  • Financing costs breakdown (interest rates & expense, time value of money, etc.)
  • Producer's cashflows & Internal IRR
  • Financier's cashflows & IRR, for each type of financing structure scenario
