Production Monitoring and Mentoring Service
Many financiers now agree to finance lower budget Feature Films (£1,500,000 and under) without a Completion Guarantee.
The nature of these projects is that (particularly those with budgets of £750,000 – £1,000,000) they can rarely afford to employ experienced HoD’s. The producer and director themselves may be “first timers”.
At Paterson James we have set up a production monitoring and mentoring service specifically to give these projects the benefit of experienced support, monitoring, and mentoring as required.
This gives financiers confidence to invest in the knowledge that the production is being monitored with the same care and attention to detail as it would be if a completion guarantee was in place, at the same time providing a secure platform for new talent to develop.
Our monitoring service is also useful for Television projects seeking tax credit & co-production finance from financiers who historically look to either have a bond or some form of independent representation protecting their funding.
And also for busy independent TV production companies who have several projects going at once & who prefer to use a “one off” cost effective monitoring service rather than take on additional staff.
