As equity, presales and other traditional forms of financing have dried up, filmmakers have looked for new forms of financing. Properly utilized, crowd funding, corporate sponsorships, fiscal agents, soft money and project related investments can be useful and versatile financing tools for the independent producer. They can be deployed to develop, launch, partially/fully fund, or complete a project. But there are numerous legal pitfalls to navigate. As these sources become more widely used, they will most certainly draw increased legal scrutiny.
