Package + Pitch™: FILM

We are pleased to bundle two comprehensive services under one umbrella, and offer you All Access Plan® with Package + Pitch™: FILM.

You have the opportunity to create a funding package for one low, flat fee that you can confidently present to your target audience.

Our All Access Plan® provides you with unlimited, privileged communications and access to our professional network. For more information, see the official announcement here. Package + Pitch™: FILM is uniquely created to serve independent filmmakers seeking to produce quality funding packages to pitch projects to lenders, active or passive private investors.

Here is how the process works.

We will discuss options that you may wish to consider and try to connect you with the resources to source financing for your project. This may involve connecting you with lenders, production companies, or investors. Some clients already have contacts and we help them build their funding request package.

Knowing what type of financing you envision for your project is key. You might use one or a combination of financing sources that involves parties with vastly different knowledge and experience. The budget size also helps determine what type of financing is the most appropriate for your entertainment project.

There are three types of funding request packages that we create:

    1. Producer’s Package
    2. Active Investor Package
    3. Passive Investor Package

The Producer’s Package is our basic package. The Active Investor package requires an investment vehicle and may require a business plan. The Passive Investor Package is most comprehensive, offering a private placement memo and securities disclosure documentation. Both Active and Passive Investor packages must comply with federal and state securities laws. We will review packages with you to determine which is the right fit for your project.

Services and Fees are distinguished by the type of funding package you have:

What happens when you receive a funding offer.

One you receive a funding package from us, and secure a financial commitment from a lender, active or passive investor, we will provide you with an estimate for our fees to help you close the financing offer. Our fee to help you close financing will depend upon the complexity of the deal, how many parties are involved, and your deadline. Because this cannot be known at the time you hire us to help you prepare a funding package, we do not include the cost for this service in our funding package flat fee.

If you are not sure which package is right for you, then please schedule a consultation with us and we will confidentially discuss your project with you. Once you know which package is the best fit for your project, we can draft an offer for your legal services that will formalize our arrangement.

All fees are due up front. If you require financial assistance, then we will discuss with you some creative solutions that depend on your specific set of circumstances. Some solutions may involve convertible notes, while others may involve applying for a secured loan. We also accept credit cards.

We thank you for considering MORIN Entertainment Law. It is our endeavor to supply you with the highest quality legal & business services. We welcome you to ask us any questions.
