FIRST-EVER SURVEY OF SPECIALTY FILMS AND FINANCING COMPLETE
Though this information "feels" accurate, I have to note that I haven't personally double checked its data or methodology. Example, industry reports usually only include data from the largest agencies and management companies because its very difficult to capture data from the small ones... like us, and all those small companies in aggregate are meaningful. Regardless, the important takeaways concerning trends are probably fairly accurate, and I applaud Jeremy's work as it helps demystify the industry, which allows investors to feel more confident and therefore fund films.
Jeremy Juuso Consulting has completed the first year of its ongoing survey of the U.S. specialty film market and its financing traits.
Defined as any film released into 1,000 U.S. movie theaters or fewer on opening weekend, specialty films are comprised primarily of independent films with no studio ties.
