Film investment proposal template & ideas on how to attract film investment
If you an entrepreneur that has developed a film, or are looking to produce a film, or even are looking to write a film script in the hopes of later raising investment from private individuals or angel investors in film production then it is crucial that you attract the right kind of investor interest by writing the right kind of investment template.

Do you intend to distribute it?
Have you got a plan to market it using guerrilla tackets – think Blair witch and paranormal activity
