- Gavin Wilding - Film Finance, Distribution & Digital Media Consultant
- We can also assist with co-productions, international finance, tax credits, equity investing. Independent financing is a specialized world and we have the contacts to get your project funded. Digital Media has created a whole new opportunity for emerging filmmakers, now that every smart-device is essentially a distribution platform and ‘movie theater’. This is a very recent development, and it has created some very exiting new finance models that can be commercially viable. Gavin Wilding - Executive Producer of THE YANK Feature Film! THE YANK began as a consulting contract between RAMPAGE NEW MEDIA and YANK LLC. We worked closely with first time writer-director-actor, SEAN LACKEY, and developed the script, based on his real life experience of traveling to Ireland for a wedding. The project was then packaged and financed with the help of Gavin and went before the cameras in both Cleveland and Ireland this past summer, with prominent actors, COLM MEANEY, FRED WILLARD and KEVIN FARLEY. This production demonstrates a whole new model of financing and distribution.... It opens up many new doors for commercializing feature films, off and on-line. Ask us about it!

The best example of what I do, and the situations that I am most effective at, are when a project comes to me ‘half built’. Either creatively or financially. And if it has potential, I can typically find the other half of the equation. For example, if it’s a $10 mill project, that has $6 mill in place (including soft money), there are enough contacts (equity funds and such) out there that will consider coming in for the rest. The challenge is knowing how to deliver the long list of requirements to satisfy them, or in the case of attaching creative elements, knowing the way to get the attention of agents and managers. This is exactly what I can help with. There is a language to this business, and unless you know it, it becomes very difficult to penetrate the system. Even with a terrific, commercial project. So, this is what I do. I bridge the GAP between a project being half built, and being fully built and ready for production. 20 years of doing this, puts a lot of knowledge and contacts in your hands. Oh, and first timers, don’t be shy! If you have something incredible and commercial, send it in. Never know where a great script will come from!
