Filmbase are running a Financing Your First Feature Seminar[/url:31f6fx0y]. Would be good to get some of these types of things filmed. Maybe we could put some money together to send one or two of us up to film them and put them up here for the rest to watch. Got to be cheaper than us all trying to make it along.
I’m interested in this one and am willing to go film or pay part for someone else to go. Provided of course Filmbase will allow us to film it. I often see them filming these kinds of things themselves but never see the footage anywhere.
Anyway, here’s the info for anyone who wants it.
Financing Your First Feature
10am – 4pm Friday 15th October 2010
Financing Your First Feature is a seminar aimed at producers and filmmakers looking to make the leap into feature film production.
The seminar will take a specifically Irish focus to the topic and will include discussions on Irish Film Board financing, Section 481, private equity, co-production models and case studies on a number of recent Irish Films. Participants will gain a better understanding of the main strands of funding available to Irish productions and understand how they can be used in combination with each other to help raise the full budget needed for drama feature films. Pitched at filmmakers interested in making their first feature film, the session will principally cover film budgets from €100,000 to €1,500,000.
Topics covered will include:
– Irish Film Financing Agencies
– Film Tax Incentives (Section 481)
– Television finance
– Understanding film finance agreements
– Understanding Finance, Recoupment and Distribution Plans
– Advantages and disadvantages of each type of funding
– Regulations covering film funding
– Common mistakes which make films “unfundable”
– Financing a first film as a producer
– Financing a first film as a director
– The differences between micro-budget and low-budget filmmaking
– Legal issues to be aware of as a filmmaker
– Case studies in financing recent Irish feature films
Speakers will include:
> Mark Byrne (Business Affairs Manager, Irish Film Board)
> Brian Gormley (Solicitor, Phillip Lee and Company)
> John Gleeson (Film Finance Consultant, Horwath Barstow Charleton)
> Paul Donovan, Producer Grand Pictures (Mapmaker, Situations Vacant, Dead Long Enough)
