Why most films never make a profit

Media outlets rarely report the financial detail of the independent film process, and many investors are shocked to learn only two-three percent of films produced make a net profit

Film financing compared to Real Estate

Quite often, first time investors have a hard time wrapping their head around what it means to finance a film. Where do I start? What’s the bigger picture? But if you have a general understanding of how real estate projects come about, then you already have the framework for the life of a film, from start to finish. So lets simplify the film production phases and the real estate phases, and highlight their key structural similarities.
