6 Trickiest Questions Film Financiers Ask from
Producers

Financing is a basic and often the most feared
part in the production process of any film
making. It is not easy to attract even the
wealthiest of financiers or investors as a number
of factors come into play. The sole purpose to
attract investors is to get enough funds for the
movie production. A number of difficulties arises
in getting the required finance as the investors
have some critical concerns to get cleared first.
Lets discuss some of the most important and
tricky questions you need to answer as a producer
to the Film Financiers in Los Angeles.
3
What Is In It For Me?
The most basic question any investor would ask
regardless of the business or industry you are
about to start your project in. You need to
clearly explain the benefits the financier would
get if he invests in your project. Not
necessarily the benefits are monetary, but could
be anything like a stake in the film, a fixed
return on future projects, hold on exclusive
rights, etc.
4
How Much Would I Earn?
Here comes the cash part. Be careful in answering
as you never know the business your film is going
to make and hence, the returns you and film unit
are going to get. Future projections help in
estimating the profits your film will generate
over the course of time, but it is better not to
rely on these projections completely. Factors
like inflation rates, movie release time in year,
competitors into action, etc. decide the outcome
of any project in terms of profits.
5
How Are You Spending My Money?
Create a professional business plan and add all
the relevant information. An investor will most
often ask to go through your business plan. It
will help him in determining how and where his
budget is going to be spent, the allocation of
funds, potential areas of profits, etc. Be sure
to use industry standard budgets rather than
creating your own.
6
What Kind Of Film Script You Have?
After the profit correspondences, it is about
time when the investor will ask you about the
films script or what is it about. Use great
pitching skills to get your idea across in a way
that investors find your project quite different
and interesting.
7
Is The Film Going To Play In Cinemas?
This is a critical point where you have to be
realistic about the scenario of movie playing in
theatres. Its obvious your chances of getting
enough distributors are quite thin unless you
have done a great deal of marketing and PR with
your project.
8
Are You Offering Any Perks?
Actual investment is never enough if your
investors tend to be a part of the movie
production. Some investors want set visits, small
acting roles, premier tickets, etc. and other
extras that is apart from the financial matters.
Be aware that involvements like these are going
to cost you lots. However, it should be taken
into account that the involvement of film
financiers brings you kind of experience that can
benefit you overall in your project.
