Hello!

I have a small production company and we have a small list of indy films we would like to produce. Like most people here, we are interested in finding funding. The project we choose to produce first will depend on whichever catches an investor's eyes first.

Specifically though, we are looking for Passive Investors, a handful of individuals that can invest in the film but not have creative control over the project. I know that in order to secure passive investors you generally need a securities and exchange contract. Beyond that, I am in a big of a blind spot.

Has anyone here ever secured funding in this manner? Are there any sample contracts or legal resource I can research or read up on? I know I will need to get an entertainment lawyer, and I will, but I am trying to do a little bit of groundwork first.

Thanks!
