Filmmakers and Financing Business Plans for Independents
Sixth Edition

By the author of the business plan or "The Blair Witch Project"

Louise Levison is president and founder of Business Strategies, a ten-year old business plan/venture capital financing consulting firm.

  • The only book devoted exclusively to a specialized business plan for filmmakers
  • Presents a step-by-step approach to creating a business plan that will attract investor financing for a project

    "This book presents the information in a concise, informative and unique format - with this book, the class section on financing films practically teaches itself. I find the advantages/disadvantages sections very helpful."

    The first, most crucial step in making a film is finding the funds to do it. Let Louise Levison, who wrote the innovative business plan for "The Blair Witch Project," show you how. This unique guide teaches you not only how to create a business plan, but also how to avoid common business plan mistakes, so that you can attract and secure an investor. In jargon-free terms, the author leads you through every step. Each chapter concentrates on a different section of the business plan, including the industry, marketing, financing, and distribution. Large format films, new media and shorts are also discussed. The included companion web site features supplementary exercises and spreadsheets so that you get comfortable crunching the numbers--no math degree required!

    The sixth edition contains completely revised and updated industry data along with updated information on distribution including online and foreign markets. Plus, new interviews and case studies with filmmakers will show you real-world examples of equity investors and markets.
