Financing for Films and More
Our private lending group has a dedicated entertainment division that can fund your entertainment projects - Feature Films, TV Movies, Slates, Documentary or TV Series - typically using either the 4X Loan or the 1X Lending Program (though you can also use the more specialized Gold Backed or SBLC Programs to fund film projects as well). Each program has different loan minimums and specific entry requirements..
To qualify for the 4X Loan the borrower needs to have already raised 20% of the loan amount in cash or crypto and the minimum deposit is equivalent to $10M USD after discounting. With the 20% of what you need already raised, this program can provide you with a credit facility that is typically four times your deposit at a wholesale interest rate of 3.5%. Your initial funds are 100% secure in your own account and your funds are NOT collateral for the loan.
Film financing with the 1X Lending Program requires a minimum equivalent to €1M EUR to enter the program. Crypto is an option, only top 5 currencies at 80% LTV. Visit the program pages (links above) for more details on each of the loan programs.

When Is A Film Project Ready To Apply For Funding?
To apply for funding the production elements need to be established and a fully developed business plan should be in place.
Your project doesn't necessarily have to be ready to produce immediately, but it should basically be “ready to go”.
If you only have a script but no budget or production plan, then you are not yet ready for funding.
