About Us AngelWorld Entertainment Inc. (AWE) was incorporated (in 2007) to provide investors with a lower risk and more transparent investment model for Independent film. By limiting investment to only those productions that meet AWE’s strict (creative and financial) criteria, the traditional risks generally associated with film investment are dramatically reduced.
AWE provides 100% of the funds, but it also raises the bar on the conditions for releasing that money. As a commercial entity keen to provide its investors with attractive returns, AWE selects its projects based on quite a tough set of criteria. For example, it is not likely to look for ‘art house’ films. It seeks projects, which it regards to have an A-level script, bankable cast (based on actual and recent estimated sales figures), a realistic budget (including above the line fees) and finally, demonstrable of being a good investment prospect.
With strong connections within the industry, AWE is willing, in certain circumstances, to assist in putting some of these pieces together.
There are no known competitors with this model in the industry. This may be because its looks like a rather risky model, with one source taking all the risk. This is only true if the investment is not structured properly. This is not the case with AWE.
AWE charges a finance premium, added to the production budget, which is repaid to the investor somewhat immediately. This premium is a fair balance between providing the investor with immediate returns, and keeping the fully loaded budget at a reasonable level. More importantly, it reduces the investment risk on day one. In addition to this, AWE holds a collateral security lien over all the assets (until such time as AWE has been repaid in full). So unlike traditional film investment, the investor’s risk is not so great when investing with AWE.
