The unpredictable nature of making movies means that negotiating a film finance deal can be a minefield. For producers, the strategies and structures of financing arrangements are as numerous as the films that are made. The aim of this book is to attempt to demystify some of the complexities of the film industry and specifically a film financing transaction. One of the most common complaints from the banking industry sector is the apparent misapprehension of film makers as to the role banks play in the financing of films.
