We are always looking for Investors to help fund our slate of films.  You can either help fund one film or invest in all the slate.

Entry level for investment starts at £5,000, for which you gain a percentage of profits.


However we are also looking for product placement so if you have something you would like to advertise that we can incorporate in our films. This starts at £500.


In return for Investment we can offer:


1 A projected 10-20% return on your investment, but in some cases much higher.

2. Some profile actors, who will always be in our casts and help to sell the film

3. We have incentives and can offer internships and assistant crew placement

4. We can offer a small role subject to suitability.

5. We can offer invitations to red carpet events, festivals, wrap party, lunch with cast members, behind the scenes tours to other television and theatre events, mentoring by various professionals, exclusive theatre tickets, etc etc.

6.Tax incentives: Under the SEIS and EIS scheme run by the UK government you may get 70-82% relief back on your investment against tax.  Your own or our Accountants can explain this to you.


WORSE CASE SCENARIO – Film Fails

£5,000 invested

-£2,500 allowance against tax under SEIS(small box to tick on tax return, HMRC does the calculation for you)

-£1,000 returned with producers tax credit

£1,500 – actual amount lost

40%(if in this tax band) of that loss reclaimable = £600

Real terms actual loss =£900

Then if we cast your son/daughter etc they will get paid a NMW+ rate of £100/day, so you can see the potential loss becomes smaller and smaller or disappears altogether.

 

BEST CASE SCENARIO – Film is Successful

£5,000 invested

Investment to be returned in 1st year

10-20% interest for 3 years  = £500 to £1,000 per year

Real Terms: Return = £8,000

Incentives such as internships for your children

Entry to theatre and film events

Red Carpet Events

Red Carpet at Film Festivals

Meeting Cast and Crew

Observing film on set

 

So your risk on £5,000 is a potential loss of  say £500 or a GAIN  including repayment of initial stakeover 3 years is £8,000. 


This is a speculative investment so please seek professional financial advice.

 


Please do contact us with your interest:  info@luminofilms.co.uk and we will send a 20 plus page investment proposal  NDA (non disclosure agreement)for any film you are interested in that outlines, cast, crew, budget, scheduling and information on the film.


Please also look at The Gypsy Con Trick page as here we welcome donations.   Why give?  Crowdfunding is a democratic way to support the film industry.  You will be credited and thanked on the film. You can be sure that you have contributed to a film where we try our best to always cast UNKNOWN ACTORS, YOUNG STARTING OUT ACTORS, ETHNICALLY DIVERSE ACTORS and CREW, FEMALES. Also you can be part of our success and join in premier red carpet screenings and promotional events where you may meet profile actors and join in the glamourous side of film life.
