Independent films can be a profitable investment opportunity. Even independent films produced on micro-budgets of $500,000 or less can bring tremendous profits to the investors. “The Blair Witch Project” cost $35,000 and grossed $240 million in the box office. “Napoleon Dynamite” was created with a $400,000 production budget and went on to gross just over $46 million in the box office alone, not including sales from DVD and television.
A movie is the best investment one can make for the up-side potential vs. the risk. There simply is no business with manufacturing capital entry requirements as low as motion pictures where the potential return can be as unlimited over the short, medium and long terms. For instance, a movie such as “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” which was produced for about $1.5 million as an independent film (which was also turned down by all the studios for financing) and it has so far generated over $368 million dollars and again, this is not even including DVD sales or television rights that were sold. Investing in real estate used to be a lucrative business, but today with the real estate values laying flat this is no time to dig your money into the ground and hope it grows into a rose. The Stock Market is going up and down like a yo-yo. Just a couple of years ago it dropped over 700 points, the biggest drop in history. This is the time for basics: people need to eat, they need a place to live and they need entertainment. “She’s Gotta Have It” was reportedly made for $175,000 in black and white and grossed $6.5 million. The movie “Saw” was produced for about $1.2 million and went on to make $102 million – and it does not stop earning money for an entire lifetime. This is what makes investing in film different from other investments such as real estate, rental property, blue chip stocks or even international currency. There are thousands of other examples where the return was at least three times anything done by securities listed on the New York Stock Exchange, the S&P 500 or the NASDAQ. In business what goes up must come down; in film what goes up keeps going up.
Movies are a product and creating a positive return on investment depends on key variables: the story, the talent attached, the production team and the movie’s commercial appeal.
