Film Finance Due Diligence
Umbrelic on how to start investing in the movies without breaking the bank
DiffuseTap Virtual Event Series – May 26, 2021
“…A lot of times, the creatives are the one driving the charge for the fundraising and everything else there. That’s great, but the problem I find most of the time is, they’re not thinking of the investor as a customer… The way we think about it is that they are our customers, and they are investing in our product. So with that in mind, what do we need to do? And what criteria do we need to make sure that the product gets delivered on time?” – Brian Katz, Umbrelic
