Q: What are some of the benefits to potential investors?
I believe that the benefits for an investor of this film lie in two areas: 1) If the investor is considering getting into the film business as a producer, working with an independent short film will give them exposure to the business and process of making a film while limiting their financial commitment. Some feature films will only accept investors of a certain size- like 20% of the overall cost for example- to limit the number of financers they have to answer to. Investing in a small film gives you a sample of what it is like. 2) I think that there is an advantage to investors to build a relationship with a film maker early in the director's career. Relationships between directors and executive producers are like all relationships in that they are built on trust. When budgets and projects are smaller, so are egos and the temptation to mislead. This is good time to build a relationship where all parties can focus on what they love- creating and telling stories.
