Career Opportunities

Break into the Film Industry from Bay Ridge or Staten Island! There is currently over a million dollars of technology in place. We are looking for motivated entrepreneurs capable to sell it, develop it, and eventually cash out with an IPO. This is not a job, this is a business opportunity. With initial commission potentially beyond real estate or financial institutions. Plus you're breaking into a coveted industry.

A goal of a start-up is often to shake up an industry. If you follow the news, Hollywood is doing that all by themselves. If you follow the weekly box office, you will see that bankable stars are no longer bankable. Like a 2008 subprime mortgage. Exhibit A: Suburbicon. That being said, it does not mean established talent is not helpful. It is, but the industry needs fresh voices and stories! That is where we can change the industry.

What problem do we solve?
 
Every writer, director, filmmaker, and actor is desperate for a manager, agent, or production company. It is likely many of these people abuse that power. We have a digitized solution. No more shady hotel meetings! Employers and employees can rate their experiences so talent (both in front and behind the camera) have an equal opportunity at merit-based employment. We are the first virtual talent agency, production company, and investment firm. Here's how it work:
 

Independent Features was built to facilitate all stages of the filmmaking cycle. Through Independent Features, filmmakers can utilize the JOBS Act to raise investment dollars for their films. In short, the JOBS Act was signed into law to let entrepreneurs us crowdfunding as a vehicle for investment. Instead of offering cheap perks, they can offer an investment opportunity for their production. To improve their chances of funding, they can sign a marketable star. Unlike other platforms we offer a high level of transparency. After the funding is received, filmmakers can use the site to post jobs, receive bids from industry professionals, license music for use in film, book theaters, and sell tickets. This entire process can be tracked online by investors. Unlike anything else in the marketplace.
