Film investing through EIS has changed radically since the patient capital review. Andeas Roald is CEO of Sovereign Media, whose background is in making films rather than simply financing them, talks about the return to more traditional structures.

In this episode of The EIS Navigator, Brian and Andreas go through some of the basics of film investing, discussing where and how investors get their returns. Distribution is key, and the landscape is changing rapidly. They discuss video-on-demand services and how to get the best deal from them. They also go into the effect COVID-19 is having, both on distribution and production, finding the pluses as well as the minuses.
