I educate intelligent and conscious accredited investors, wealth advisers, venture capitalists,private equity funds, portfolio managers, & family offices about the superior ROI of investing in one movie or a portfolio of films. Not as a sexy Hollywood vanity investment to party with movie stars on a yacht at the Cannes Film Festival, but as a long term non-correlated asset class that creates jobs and has a 100% transparency on accounting & revenues.
Chasing the next lottery ticket pre-ipo company or investing in 30 startups and hoping one will be the next Facebook is a poor investment model vs. the superior transparency and absolute return on equity in global film finance, production, and distribution.
Many prominent investors in film include Jeff Skoll-EBAY, Larry Ellison-ORACLE, Jim Breyer-ACCEL PARTNERS, Fred Smith-FEDEX, Jim Kohlberg-KKR, Anil Ambani-RELIANCE, Norman Waitt-GATEWAY,Marc Cuban,Len Blavatnik,Thompson Family, Tim Headington & numerous institutional investors such as Honeywell Pensions,Columbus Nova,Texas Pacific Partners,MC Ventures,Fortress,Elliott Associates,Waddell & Reed and others.
Creatively, I am film/television writer,director,and producer. I am repped by Geoff Silverman @The Cartel www.cartelent.com & a prolific entertainment law firm in Beverly Hills.

For my overall sanity, I train Brazilian JiuJitsu in Chicago under Jeff Serafin/Jack McVicker, Muay Thai under Rick Sollo/AIKI, Astanga & Vinyasa Yoga, Weights, and I am involved with various organizations devoted to conscious living and empowering people that anything is possible only if we treat others with a high degree of human dignity and ethics. My dark humor doesn't count.
