Hello - I am a writer/director who has 3 feature film projects shot and partially edited. These projects were "micro/no budget" films - meaning I paid out of pocket for each, topping off at around $10,000 so far. Seeing as how I need more money to complete the post-production and marketing on these projects, as well as to begin to raise money for projects I would like to make in the near future, I am currently looking for a business partner who would like to join me with the specific mission of raising financing and producing my films. These films are fictional feature-length films ranging in topics, each with social relevance (I.E. women's rights, migrant crisis, and character studies in the vein of John Cassavettes and Mumblecore films). Cinema is my life passion. If you're a fan of the Criterion Collection and love the work of people like R.W. Fassbinder, John Cassavettes, the Duplass Brothers and others, I think we will get along just fine :) I want to work with a partner(s) long-term. I need a skilled executive producer who can tap various forms of financing for independent films. These of course include equity; pre-sales; bridge financing; tax credits; crowdfunding; deferred payments --- you name it. Going abroad to other countries to seek financing is something I am most interested in as well.
I am only looking for people who would like to join me from the starting point. The bottom of the barrel with no money. We will start our production company together and kick ass! As a writer/director its crucial that I find my producers who are interested in ---producing! Many people are director/producers these days, but I am interested in working with people who only want to produce (both in raising financing and in the day-to-day battles of filmmaking). I look forward to hearing from you!
