London investment firm Creativity Capital has made its first production commitment since teaming with venture capital fund SMI, cash-flowing the tax credit on The Hatching.

Giant croc horror-comedy The Hatching, starring Thomas Turgoose, Luara Aikman, Andrew Lee Potts and Deborah Rosan, wrapped in Somerset last week. Director is Michael Anderson.

The deal was negotiated by Creativity Capital principals Patrick Fischer and Richard Kondal together with The Hatching’s producers Chantelle de Carvalho and Nigel Wooll.

Representing Creativity Capital was Sam Tatton-Brown at Lee and Thompson with Lee Stone representing the producers.
