The production and distribution companies hire us as executive producers to finance their projects. We always have a number of SEIS, EIS, Equity and Distribution film or TV investment opportunities available. Our sole focus is on our products as an investment opportunity, and we ensure that we work alongside the directors and producers to make sure that our projects stay within their financial budget and timeline. All monies paid by investors are sent directly to the UK production company. We can arrange for our investors to visit the sets during film, appear as extras, and attend private screenings. We also arrange film investment seminars here at Elstree with guest speakers from the different film companies, along with qualified accountants who can discuss the various tax advantages of investing in the film industry.
An executive producer is someone who has either personally funded or arranged the funding for a motion picture or television show. Making a television show or film can be a costly process and so the Executive Producer essentially acts as the financial backer, helping the production to raise the extra finances it needs to get to the distribution stage. On the film/television set our main role is to ensure that the project is proceeding according to the set schedule and budget. Although as an Executive Producer we don´t have a say in anything that may affect the films schedule or marketability.
Red Rock Entertainment specialise in films. We mainly work with film projects which are at an advanced stage and are looking for the final amount of financing. We focus on film projects that have a commercial appeal, an identifiable audience, moderaterly low and controllable costs and a sound financial structure. We also require that certain elements are in place before we commit to any film project.
