Films In Motion, through its partners can arrange the financing of your incentives in multiple states. We have significant experience in production incentives, having handled more than 60 projects in the state of Louisiana as well as tax credit placement on 20 films outside of the state. The major competitive advantage of using us is through our experience in production is that we can accurately predict the amount of tax credits or rebate a project will qualify for. By having Films In Motion on the ground handling production, internal controls, insure compliance, and maximizing tax incentives - a production can expect to receive higher loan amounts versus using a traditional incentive based lender who must make a calculation of the amount of incentives and then discount that calculation.
Unlike banks and traditional financiers, who are typically passive investors, Films In Motion exercises strict oversight over investments, using our in-depth experience in monitoring film productions. This practice ensures compliance with production milestones, projected budgets, and regulatory standards.
Films In Motion’s experience in evaluating and structuring government production incentives for film productions is a significant competitive advantage. Having structured these transactions and committed it’s own capital, the company has a thorough understanding of the risks inherent in tax-based finance. Films In Motion provides strict production oversight and manages the associated certification and placement risks inherent in these transactions.
Films In Motion has worked with several banks in financing film projects with bona fide minimum guarantees or negative pickups. You may be surprised by our ability to navigate the new world, of financing a project through multiple sources.
