The Enhanced Film Funding Program allows film makers the ability to obtain up to 100% of the film's budget with only 10% cash requirement from the client or angel/investor.

How it Works
10% of the film's budget, (minimum $1M), is placed into a dual signatory deposit account at a top-tier U.S. bank, where it remains until the end of the film's funding at which time it is returned to the angel/investor. The client's funds never leave that bank account, are bank blocked and are 100% protected at all times.
Film funding is based upon a monthly draw schedule which is agreed-to with the filmmaker prior to closing. No loan payments are due during the film production.
Recoupment of principal and interest on the loan is 75% of the net proceeds of the film project to the lender with 25% of the net proceeds to the film maker until the loan is paid in full. Then the formula inverts to 25/75. All receipts, both hard and soft, are administered by Fintage House. The lenders Note is full recourse to the film enterprise Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) and its financial receipts only and is non-recourse to the film's principals.
A Binding Term Sheet may be issued in a matter of days after full review of the film project submission with closing shortly thereafter. Film funding draws may begin as soon as 45 days after closing.
Please note that the movie must be a commercially viable product with a "bondable" producer in place, distribution worked out and other usual and customary basic financial movie project criteria. Our finance group is looking to fund only quality film projects.
