Film and series production companies face a set of challenges that increases their complexity – and ultimately affects their cash flow. Some of these challenges are: not enough working capital to kick-start a project, capital cost of new or updated specialised equipment or simply payment delays as you only receive payment up to 90 days after invoice.
