Our Business Model

Our search is for projects from $3M to $12M USD, with some exceptions on either end. Nothing under $1M.

We are here to help you get your project developed, financed, produced and distributed. We do not participate in finance only projects, and we do not option or purchase scripts. That’s not our business model.

On the other hand, we do not take interest in your intellectual property, and we do not take creative control. It is your project!

We serve as production management taking the business concerns of making your movie or television program off of your shoulders. We free up creatives to be … well … creative!

Before You Submit!

Please listen to the interview below before submitting so that you understand our business model. More information is available in a recent blog post by development executive Lee Roth, “So Just What Is Film Development Anyway?

If you are new to screenwriting and the submission process We highly recommend the article linked below as something that should be required reading for all screenwriters. If your script is on its first draft, trust us … it’s not ready … and there are no second first impressions. Please read this article before submitting … and pay particular attention to #’s 1, 3, 6 and 7!
