The online private marketplace for film financing and dealmaking has struck a slew of partnerships with companies involved in every step of the film-making process.
The move is a victory for social technology and comes hot on the heels of the world premiere in Toronto of Marina Zenovich’s Roman Polanski: Odd Man Out, which secured production funds after the filmmaker met investors through Slated. Upcoming drama The Way, Way Back with Steve Carell (pictured) and Alison Janney also benefited from the service.
It is understood that since the January launch earlier this year the company has arranged or completed financing on a number of features budgeted from $500,000 to $10m.
Slated’s modus operandi is to pair vetted filmmakers with verified investors. The wave of new US partners includes Echo Lake, Entertainment IM Global, Preferred Content, Submarine Entertainment, Voltage Pictures, XYZ Films and the Sundance and Tribeca film institutes.
Rounding out the domestic allies are Bold Films, Caliber Media, Untitled Entertainment, Three Point Capital, the IFP, FIND, Technicolor, Deluxe, Circle Of Confusion, The Black List and the International Documentary Association.
The international partners are: Backup Films (France); Bankside Films (UK); Dynamo (Colombia); Prescience (UK); Rezo Films (France); Salt (UK); Stargate Capital (UK); and WestEnd Films (UK).
Slated launched at Sundance 2012 and is led by Duncan Cork, Stephan Paternot and a team of film and technology veterans.
