Film Capital

"Investors seeking riches in Hollywood are finding out why the movie capital is called Tinsel Town - all that glitters is not gold." "After pouring $15 billion into recent film deals, some investors have taken losses and many are demanding that film studios change how they structure the projects. Roiling credit markets have scared many away from untraditional investments, while some investors say studios treated them shabbily." "In recent years, hedge funds flush with cash were drawn to Hollywood deals amid projected double-digit returns. But both Hollywood and banking executives say several of    the deals over the past few years wound up costing investors hundreds of millions of dollars in losses." "The funds, partnered with big investment banks, often backed studios in transactions known as movie slate financing deals, taking on some risks formerly absorbed by studios in return for a share of profits from films in the slate."
