Who is Ante-ing Up? The New Financing Sources for Film and Media

16 October 2007 Past Event

In a global entertainment universe, in which “Hollywood” is a global product with multiple sources, new financing models are finding this explosion of media. Hedge funds, private equity, and limited partnerships are all racing to invest in entertainment and new media. Why? This panel explores different models, their proponents and the interests they represent, and answer questions such as what are the risks for the investor and what are the returns? How do these new forms relate to what is traditionally called a “studio?” What are investors really investing in? What is the attraction for them and for the entertainment companies who benefit --- and do they benefit? Are some investors fueling the content wars? What legal issues are presented?

This panel was moderated by Ken Suddleson, Partner, Foley & Lardner LLP. Panelist included: Jeff Begun, Axium International; Alexis Garcia, Endeavor Talent Agency; lrene Romero, Comerica Bank; and Roy A. Salter, Principal, The Salter Group, LLC.
