cashflow waterfalls

Cashflow waterfalls break down the projected net revenues from all different sources including domestic and foreign box office, DVD, VOD, and TV rights. Using current market trends along with comparable films, we project these revenues under multiple distribution scenarios to give you and investors a clear picture of the expected return on investment.


We analyze films similar to yours using proprietary research methodologies to forecast the success of your project. Based on information such as the cash flow, return on investment, and market penetration of comparable films, our experts can evaluate the potential of your film. We then present this information in industry standard formats so that investors can quickly see why they need to be on board.

Demographic Analysis

We delve deeper to analyze how similar films performed across relevant demographic categories. We use this information to predict how your film is likely to perform in these categories. This level of analysis gives investors greater confidence in the market size and potential profitability of your film. 


Contact us today to schedule your free 20 minute phone consultation. We will carefully explain the type of information investors require and what our services can do for you. Let us worry about the business side so you can focus on the art.

When I got the comps and waterfall he prepared

I was blown away

Andrew was a surprise to me. I had agreed to help a low budget film as a co-producer. When I got the business plan, comps, and waterfall he prepared, I was blown away. Since that time, when I teach, his paperwork is the example I have the students review. I have introduced Andrew to many of my PGA colleagues and referred several clients to him. He is a real find.
