Mary Aloe and Aloe Entertainment: How to Succeed in Film Financing

First, Mary Aloe says you must take the time to truly understand the many elements of film production finance and distribution, in particular, the components and how the rights are created, distributed and paid for.

Mary Aloe suggests you take your time, be sure to research everything and don’t just ‘dive in head first’. Hire aid to over look any documents before signing them, and if you want to be cautious look for a trustworthy consultant.

Second, you have to have some kind of connection to the industry at a fairly high level, meaning, you need to have access to trustworthy people and have a good mechanism for filtering out people who are not reliable business partners.
