Its called P3V FUNDS or (principal protected private venture funds). This is the most innovative way of funding media projects that I have ever seen, and its only available to people who can market and bring their own investors to the table. If you can show "proof of funds" with a group of investors on a film project with a 10 million dollar budget or better, this is the way to go as far as I'm concerned.
The method as to how this is done is completely legal and ethical, but does require this proof system as the fund managers have a small team and wish to only work with serious investors and filmmakers to ensure that this relatively new system has a long and healthy track record.
If you would like more information on this system please feel free to contact me as I am now marketing this system and would be more than happy to go over the details once you provide the proper information on your project.
The fund managers are currently working on several projects ranging from 10 - 400 million in principal investment.
For personal investors who are unable to place 10 Million dollars I am also structuring a private investment that will place units of 250K X 40 to bring that 10M to the table as well. There is currently no project outlined for that investment and we would commence the search for a best in class packaged project for this opportunity.
