Michael is in a unique position to talk about the nexus of art and commerce, having been a chartered accountant in the 1980s, a film and theatre producer in the 1990s, a film festival director in the 2000s and a finance and investment executive over the last 13 years. In 2016, he returned to the film industry as co-founder of Mind the Gap Film Finance, a boutique cashflow lender to the low budget sector. In the first 3 years of business Mind The Gap has lent to over 40 productions, ranging from low budget narrative features, theatrical documentaries, a wide range of television programs and a number of multi-platform series.


Join this speaker’s Roundtable to discuss:

Cashflow Lending for Lower Budget Productions

We will discuss what to consider for cashflow lending up to $1m secured by the Producer Offset, PDV Offset, Pre-sales and Guarantees for films, television programs and multi-platform productions. We will also look at how the low budget sector deals with private investors/crowdfunding/philanthropy, getting a tailored theatrical release that will unlock 40% Offset, managing reinvestments and working without a completion bond.
