About Soleil Film
The company is primarily involved in film production, and is currently in development of its screenplay, ÂSay it in Russian.Â Other projects include the financing of 20% of ÂFallacy,Â starring John Savage and Stephen Baldwin.
Soleil FilmsÂ unique strategy is based on the fact that independent films depend on financing; risk capital that is typically put up by a small group of investors. If the film is successfully made and distributed, investors usually look forward to a return within one to two years. After the film is made, success depends on a distributor investing a significant amount of money into its promotion. ÂSoleil has taken the risk, uncertainty and time out of the equation,Â according to Eade. ÂThe companyÂs business model allows investors purchase shares representing equity of the company. The film is made, and, since it is an equity investment, investors have a built in exit strategy at the moment of their investment, and their investment risk is spread out over the companyÂs entire library. The cost of the film is booked as an asset, making it more attractive to distributors and setting a break-even book value of the film,Â added Eade.
