Overseeing financial aspects of the project

(More details in conversation)

Raising money is the key to any independent film, regardless of your position, experience, and past credits, and there are only a few ways to actually accomplish that.

Film investments are attractive to investors because they have hint of Hollywood about them, but it should always be remembered that many of the opportunities available are a classic risk and reward gamble and stakes should be a minimal part of your total investment cash available.

There’s a chance to see consistent returns: Most major films are able to at least break even and earn a healthy return for investors. While there is some risk in financing independent films, there are often large margins for profiting when one becomes a hit. Films like slum dog millionaire, Juno and more were made with miniscule budgets that profited millions of times over at the box office.
