We have created a range of different ways for people to invest. Whether via Amersham’s SEIS / EIS Growth Fund, alternative SEIS / EIS investee companies or individual project companies.
We want our investors and their advisers to enjoy the whole film experience and have fun. This can include watching the filming and meeting the ‘stars’, going to film premieres, or even having a role as an extra!
The entire focus is on creating audience driven films. It is this that drives the commercial success of films. That is why we focus on genres of film that have a strong track record in delivering profits, and also in working with teams that have a global reputation for excellence. It is worth making the point that smaller budget films can often make greater profits than major films, because they are more targeted for specific audiences.
In today’s world we also target the inline market for films, across Netflix, Amazon Prime, In flight films, video on demand and so on. As more opportunities to view grows, so does the demand for films.
