FilmHedge is a cutting-edge fin-tech platform that offers significant advantages for both capital groups and investors as well as film producers by introducing a comprehensive solution to the funding and investment irregularities in the film and television industries.
The business, which serves as sort of a one-stop shop for solutions, is the brainchild of software engineer and film financier Jon Gosier. As the CEO of FilmHedge, he is utilising a distinctive business strategy to close the gaps between producers and investors, giving young and developing talent in cinema and television more visibility and influence.
The FilmHedge Financial Model
When Jon Gosier started funding motion picture projects that he was enthusiastic about, FilmHedge was born. He was simmering with fresh ideas after pursuing formal Film/TV education at the Savannah College of Art and Design.
Additionally, he intended to assist aspiring filmmakers who had a chance to become well-known. After privately sponsoring a number of movies with his own money, he began to see some serious issues with institutionalised investment institutions and the way they handled the asset class of film and television.
Jon Gosier soon realized that banks and investment corporations hesitated to loan money to producers and filmmakers because they thought of Film/TV as an asset class that is not very secure, and offers little ROI. Jon understood that this perception was far from reality, so he set out to change how things are done.
With the boom in online streaming, and linear TV networks also beginning to adapt to the streaming model, the need for new content grows every day, which makes the Film/TV sector a highly lucrative opportunity for any investor.
FilmHedge works as the middle man and aims to change the investors’ perception. By choosing the projects that are most likely to be accepted for funding based on pre-set criteria, FilmHedge ensures that their roster of filmmakers and producers includes people who have truly valuable and worth-watching content. The company curates a unique experience for the investors, and offers reliability and security, which brings more and more investors to the Film/TV sector.
The loans provided by FilmHedge are identical to those provided by conventional capital lenders. When they most need money to finish their film and show it to the network, producers who are at any stage of production can swiftly receive it with the help of FilmHedge. The entire procedure is quick, easy, and serves as a vital stepping stone for producers to finish their movie and have it ready for consumers.
How FilmHedge Fills The Gaps
To bridge the gap between investors and producers was one of the main reasons Jon Gosier founded FilmHedge. Given their geographic location or a number of other considerations, producers and directors frequently lack access to reputable financiers. FilmHedge makes it simple for filmmakers to apply for a loan in three simple steps with its straightforward online application process.
Producers only need to provide the FilmHedge approval board their project along with the necessary information. To begin the approval process, applicants must link a receiving account to the FilmHedge website. Funds should arrive in applicants’ accounts 24 to 72 hours after their proposal has been approved.
Having automated the entire process of applying for a media loan and receiving the funds upon approval, FilmHedge is making it possible for producers to have access to capital investment, no matter what their geographical location is. FilmHedge judges the size of a project based on the investment required by the producer to complete the film. While the minimum budget required is USD $1M, the producers’ requirement can go as high as USD $100M. Once approved, FilmHedge provides loans that range anywhere from USD $100K to USD $10M per project.
While FilmHedge is a one-stop-shop in terms of how it links investors with producers and how it automates the entire process, it certainly isn’t a producer’s sole source of investment. Instead, FilmHedge can serve as a crucial source of capital investment when a producer needs urgent funds to finish the product, complete post-production or kickstart the production process itself.
By being the middle-man and mediating the investment process, FilmHedge guarantees safe returns to the investors and thus plays an important part in helping reshape the common perception of Film/TV being a risky asset class for investment. In addition to offering a new arena of safe, reliable and scalable investment opportunities, FilmHedge also offers many other benefits to institutionalized investment firms and banks.

Classifying itself as a fin-tech company, FilmHedge strives to deploy effective tech solutions at every step of the investment supply chain.
