What Is It
Getting past the greenlight is no doubt one of the hardest parts of the filmmaking process. Firstly is it less about filmmaking and more about business and contacts. Secondly there are so many moving pieces – indeed the chain is only as strong as the weakest link. Thirdly competition for financing and distribution is fierce.
Want The Film aims to fast track producers to that elusive greenlight moment. In other words we are accelerating the packaging process.
The accelerator is a 3 month intensive programme structured around; Production, Financing and Distribution.
In comes a production team with a fully developed script and out goes a market-ready packaged project set up with investor, distributor and sales agent meetings.
Producing Teams Benefit From
Accelerators originated on the Silicon Valley start-up scene and have become the preferred method for moving start-ups from idea to next round financing fast. We see films as start-ups and producers as entrepreneurs.
It is free to apply and Want The Film does not take legal claim on your film. Instead your success is our success as our business is purely based on success fees.
Want The Film exists to make your film a success with audiences, distributors, sales agents and investors.
Having a feature film track record as producer is not a prerequisite but clearly experience is currency. Any experience that gets your film closer to success counts in our book.
The expected production budget should be in the £500,000 to £8m range
