Fundraising To Distribution For Film-Makers

GoViddo is a platform that provides fundraising, project development and distribution opportunities for those in the film-making industry.

Pain of the customer

Producers/Filmmakers:

 Requirement for content has rapidly increased after the exponential growth of various streaming platforms, TV networks and Cinema chains but current film financing and film distribution (Cinema-TV-Digital) system is complex and time consuming.

 Middlemen / distributors benefit which muddies the reward structure for film creators/producers.

The GoViddo Solution

Empowering Film Makers:


GoViddo provides an end-to-end solution for their dream project where they can:
  Raise Finance through an FCA authorised firm with a funding platform.

  Offering investment to the crowd/ film investors / regular investors.
  Distribute films with Streaming-TV networks or Cinema

Here's how everything works

  Filmmakers pitch movies/series/documentaries ideas (“Projects”) along with the terms of investment on the GoViddo platform.

  Any type of Investor can commit to a Project they like and GoViddo takes its commission once the process is complete.

  Each Project obtaining the necessary funding shall be funded under a special purpose vehicle which will be a limited company formed to develop a Project. Investors will become shareholders of the SPV.

  Filmmakers make the movies and can license to either other channels or release in the cinema with the help of sales agents and/or film distributors in partnership with GoViddo or by themselves.

  GoViddo serves as liaison in this entire process and holds up to 10% of the shares in every developed/completed Project as its fees.

  Filmmakers get paid from all the channels they distribute the movies to.

  Filmmakers pay the Film Investors as per the agreed terms by way of profit distribution.
