Financing Movies


#1

“If you have offices in Beverly Hills, Jerusalem, and Zurich, you can shoot and release a low-budget motion picture before the checks clear.”

‘Holly Woody’ - an accounting supervisor for a well known film distributor in the 1970’s.

Ever heard of a movie called “Seven Days in Utopia”?

That was my first and last effort at movie financing…Even though it had Robert Duvall it basically sucked.


#4

Missed that one :wink:

Hey, I´m movie fanatic :smile: and I always wanted to be involved in production, but somehow i still do everything else, but the movies …

Sorry, I did n not see this one, but does not look so bad, rating is above average and i like rober D… so I will give it a shot someday.

I see, it had about 4,373 mil USD grosses

Did you profit or loose on this one?


#6

Seeing as that was a bit over half of what it cost to make, it was a bust :smile:

I’ve got a few too many stories like that one, but thankfully a handful of winners that help keep things afloat :+1:


#7

Always win is tempting, but boring :smile:
You don’t appreciate successes without losses…but you already know that.


#8

I’m happy if 1 in 8 hits.
You can’t get anywhere in life without taking a few risks :smile:

It’s just making sure the rewards are adequate for the amount of risk one is taking!


#9

This is something i like :smile:

Can i ask you where are you from?


#10

I’m from Pittsburgh, PA.
We have the most bridges of any city in the world and have to buy liquor from state run stores, but overall it’s a nice place :smile:


#11

Pittsburg, nice :smile:
I´m from Czech Republic, EU

We had a Czech hockey player Jaromir Jagr in your Penguins for some time…if you watch sports
I usually don´t :smile:

I don’t care much for sport, but you can’t live in this town without being a sports fan.

Folks are fanatical about Football and Hockey…
