Thousands of independent films are made each year. Most are financed at least partially with money from "other people." This is equity financing and it invokes securities laws with harsh penalties and confusing provisions. Filmmakers must tread carefully to avoid legal problems. And now the JOBS Act offers filmmakers powerful equity financing tools in the form of investor Crowdfunding. Learn how to use equity financing to fund your film, how to structure your financing in coordination with other forms of financing, how to communicate with potential investors, and how to avoid legal problems.
