Planet Films, LLC welcomes accredited investors and institutions as investors in our network. If you are interested in learning about the tax advantages of investing in film, contact us and we can forward information to your accountant. Prior to investing in a film, Planet Films evaluates a film on well over 200 film and investment criteria.
Dr. Janet Alvarez Gonzalez has a DBA (Doctor in Business Administration) and years of due diligence experience in film and non-film ventures. Nevertheless, we encourage all investors who invest in either an individual project or a fund to consider their investment carefully, with the help of attorneys, accountants, qualified investment advisors, and especially family, if applicable. (Your investment decisions affect your family more than your lawyer) In film investments, more so than in other types of investments, the family is one of the best bell weathers of success, as a family represents a limited but balanced microcosm of the film market.
When contacting us, please include in what way you are accredited, meaning by net worth or annual income. For multiple reasons, we prefer investors with a net worth of $5 million (US) or more, but legally can accept those with $1 million or more in non-home assets or annual incomes of $300,000 or greater. ($200,000 if single).
Typically after acceptance, we will require a waiting period before inviting you to look at any specific film projects. This is to give us a chance to get to know each other. The waiting period for a fund or business is typically shorter than for an individual. We are looking for investors, not speculators, for a good fit and not for an easy business transaction. If you want to speculate on film, put an ad in the newspaper. Someone will take your money!
Planet Films has four feature films planned for 2014-2017: two international psychological dramas “The Portrait’s Secret” and “An Anonymous Prisoner in Egypt” – , and two action films, and more in consideration or negotiation.
