    Motion Picture Investor Financing Agreement


    Have you found an investor to put production money into your feature film? Put it in writing with this Motion Picture Investor Financing Agreement.

    • The investor will be repaid its investment amount, plus interest, from net profits of the film's domestic theatrical release. The investor will also participate in the net profits over and above its investment, up to a specified percentage.
    • The investor will have approval rights with respect to the budget, casting, producer, director, and distribution of the film.

    A movie will never get off the ground if you don't have the money to make it. Download the Motion Picture Investor Financing Agreement for your contracts library.

    Deferred Compensation Agreement for Film Production


    If you're a struggling filmmaker trying to make your movie on a shoestring budget, try the deferred compensation approach.

    • This Deferred Compensation Agreement is between the producer, investors and other stakeholders in the motion picture.
    • The Agreement outlines the cast, crew, budget, and production schedule of the film.
    • The Agreement breaks down how revenues received by the producer from the film will be applied: first, to payment of outstanding payables, secondly to repaying the investors, and then to the other principal stakeholders.

    A Deferred Compensation Agreement allows you to reduce your upfront costs during production of the film by deferring payment until the film is generating revenues.

    • The guarantor is not responsible for obtaining any rating for the film, or to deliver any materials other than the delivery materials, or for the quality of the film itself.
    • If the guarantor fails to complete and deliver the film, it will repay the financier in full for all sums advanced.
    • The guarantor subordinates any claims it may have against the producer to the repayment of the financier and all of the financier's rights and security interests.
