The Film Projections package is very useful and unique, especially useful was the dates for distribution chart and especially the chart which indicated end profits after distribution for investors. We recently gave a finished plan using your template to seasoned financiers and they were so impressed that two of them are looking seriously to totally finance our movie for $100 Million! Well done for such a well rounded template. David Film Director and Producer from London

I am so pleased with the Film Business Plan. It took the guess work out of this aspect of producing a film. I found all of the material easy to understand, at the same time gave the paper work a professional quality to it. I originally went to the site to research grants, but found that you offered so much more. Lean Actor, Writer, Producer from New York City
