Film Funding LA Event for Filmmakers: How to Get Distributor Minimum Guarantees Before Production


Century City, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/24/2016 -- On April 20, 2016  FilmFundingLA will present "How to Get Minimum Guarantees from Distributors Prior to Producing Your Film" which will cover what filmmakers need to know about minimum guarantees, distribution, and film funding.

Ray Ellingsen, producer at Motion Pictures Media Group says, "If your film is correctly packaged, and you have the right team on board, a good distributor will agree to release your film. The minimum guarantee they offer you can be used to secure funding from lenders and from investors."

Mr. Ellingsen began his film career in 1987 as a writer. He has since gone on to pursue numerous aspects of filmmaking, from directing and producing, to supervising post production of feature films, documentaries, and commercials.

Michael Praver, founder of JW Harding a financial services company since 2008, launched in 2015.  He adds, "I frequently run into filmmakers who have produced several films without having had a single profitable release.  This represents a tremendous waste of time and effort. This event is designed to help filmmakers learn what they need to know in order to ensure every film they do is financially successful."

Writer/Producer Nancy Fulton, acting as event moderator, adds "The more expensive a film is, the more important it becomes that there be a paying market waiting for it. When a distributor commits to a moving by offering a minimum guarantee, the risk involved in producing the film falls dramatically."
