Movie Collective is a new film business co-founded by Cassian Elwes, one of Hollywood’s leading independent film producers (Dallas Buyers Club, Mudbound, The Butler, Lawless). With a slate of exciting and diverse projects, the first movie “Utopia Road” is aiming to shoot this summer with star talent provisionally lined up.
Crowdfunding established movies with top talent is a rare thing because Hollywood’s studios and producers avoided it – until now.
Cassian Elwes, one of Hollywood’s leading independent film producers, wants to change that.
Crowdcube investors now have the opportunity to invest in a slate of exciting movies at different stages of development, with one project, "Utopia Road", expected to shoot this Summer (2018).
Most star-driven movies are able to access finance through conventional film finance channels. Cassian Elwes and his management team, which includes self-distribution expert and indie filmmaker Marcus Markou, want to radically shift how movies are financed by offering smaller investors a piece of the picture.
It means that you could become a private equity investor in a new movie studio and its slate of exciting movies – for as little as £10.
We aim for some of the anticipated profits to be paid out as dividends and others will be used to finance more movie projects on the slate.
The distribution landscape is also changing. New players into the marketplace: Netflix, Amazon and now Facebook and Apple – are disrupting how movies are being acquired and consumed.
Movie Collective seeks to make the most of these changes and provide compelling movie products – whether for the big screen or your mobile phone.
