The Power of Algorithms

"There is no controversy in social science which shows such a large body of qualitatively diverse studies coming out so uniformly in the same direction as this one."

- Paul Meehl

Professor of Psychology, Law, Neurology, and Philosophy

"[T]he studies have shown significantly better accuracy for the algorithms.

No exception has been convincingly documented."

- Daniel Kahneman, Nobel Prize in Economics

Professor of Psychology and Public Affairs

What We Do

Science has conclusively shown that, on average, algorithms are better than experts at making forward projections in low-validity environments. Accordingly, we strive to remove as much human bias as possible from the analysis process by incorporating algorithms throughout every step. Our algorithms look at 100,000's of data points to uncover the most relevant criteria, and use those criteria to deliver the most reliable projections possible. 

We offer several different kinds of analysis. Our most popular service, the Financial Analysis Package, provides all the fundamental elements an independent filmmaker needs to approach investors with confidence. We offer several add-ons to give investors additional peace-of-mind. We can also customize our analysis for your specific needs.
