MovieMaker Production Services provides a budget boost to low to mid-budget independent films by doubling a producer's spend for each dollar invested.
MovieMaker is seeking to partner with producers in active development or pre-production. If you qualify, you may be able to stretch your budget farther than you ever thought it could go.
Here’s the way the program works: A producer makes a cash investment (between $10K and $250K) at the time of enrollment and MovieMaker Production Services doubles that investment in value for virtually any budgetary need.
If $100K is invested into the program, we will negotiate and secure $200K in deals for production necessities such as camera packages, grip & lighting, post production sound and color, and even PR.
Recent MMPS vendors include: Technicolor, Fotokem, Tunnel Post, Galpin Rentals, Location Sound, MPS Studios, Keslow Camera, Timecode Post, 24 Frames, Puget Systems, and many more.
Applications should include Director and/or Producer Bio, Synopsis, Script, Budget, Production Plan and Project Sizzle Reel (if available).
Up to $250,000 in Production Value.
