Other Services

Troubleshooting Service

For the few productions which run into problems, our troubleshooting service is designed to be an experienced, independent & solution orientated option for financiers. It aims to identify problems & their causes at speed, & to assist with making the necessary adjustments to get the project back on track as soon as possible.

Having an independent representative identifying and helping to solve problems has a hidden benefit, in that it helps to protect crucial relationships between the financier, producer and creative team.


Legal Closing Service

Our Legal Closing Service supplies access to experienced freelance producers who will partner a first time, or less experienced, producer and support them through the often confusing minefield of legal closing. This allows the lead producer to concentrate on casting the film and making the creative decisions required during pre-production.

Our service also supports the legal teams on the transaction by ensuring that the conditions precedent in the closing checklists are correctly understood, and met, well in advance of legal closing.


Production Assessment Service

Our Production Assessment Service evaluates projects in their initial stages. It enables the financier to discover whether the budget & schedule has been sufficiently well prepared to translate the screenplay into a completed film; and whether the finance plan looks realistic. This is a particularly useful service for regional funding bodies who may not have the staff, or indeed the time available, to spend assessing the four key production documents – script, budget, schedule and finance plan; and provides them with an experienced overview and opinion as to whether they “stack up” into a realistic production plan.
