Like a lot of young independent British film companies, 721 Productions had only a modest budget with which to enter the $36 billion global film industry in 2014 (an industry that seems recession proof given that global box office revenues have seen a 22% increase since 2009).  Despite the low budget, director Paul Emmanuel still produced a piece of brilliance with ‘The Maid’ - a romantic drama that hit the silver screen in early 2014 and subsequently went on to pick up various film accolades, including multiple awards, a nomination for Best UK Feature Film and screenings at the prestigious London and New York film festivals. Since the overwhelming response to what was 721 Productions' very first film, the team has been hard at work on its latest film ‘Secrets of the Lost Souls’.  Paul Emmanuel is once again steering the ship second time around – albeit with a greater depth of industry connections and knowhow compared to the first. He is working alongside other talented and versatile filmmakers David C. G. Hare – who himself has built an impressive career over the past 15 years – and the award-winning cinematographer Steven Marshall who has over 9 years experience in his field and has worked on movies screened at film festivals in Cannes, Venice and Berlin.  The latest film production will cost £80,000 – you'd be forgiven for thinking that that's a small amount for the production of a movie. But with advanced digital cinema technology available to modern-day filmmakers at reasonable prices, costs can be contained. The film ‘Paranormal Activity’ for example, cost $15,000 to make and grossed over $107,000,000 at the box office – testament not only to the relatively small investment these types of productions need, but also to why Horror/Action genres are widely recognised as offering the highest rates of return on investment in the movie industry. Like Paranormal Activity ‘Secrets of the Lost Souls’ is a supernatural horror thriller aimed at the more lucrative US market.  Production is scheduled to begin early next year and 721 Productions wants to make investors become part of the journey – one featuring ongoing film updates, special mentions, exclusive screenings, site visits, film previews and a wrap party. How far you travel on that journey with the production team depends on how much you invest. Investors pledging money to this pitch will receive exciting investor rewards and shares in a movie from what is an emerging British film production company. Check out the 'rewards' section for more details.
