Our filmmaker clients typically arrive here during their process of preparing a film project or projects for successful funding while our finance clients typically arrive here seeking to find strategies for successful motion picture or media investments. We’re not just about numbers; we’re about strategy. Institutional memory and current information drive our consulting. We believe that information plus synthesis equals excellent business planning.
Our goal at FilmProfit is to provide producers, distributors and financiers of filmed entertainment with the highest quality information, reports and guidance in support of their mutual business and artistic success.
Based on our years of ingesting and analyzing the specific details of film business structure and the macro view and micro view of the economics of film performance, FilmProfit can offer you in-depth guidance as well as money and time-saving packages, all the way up to full business plans.
