Film Revenue Predictor
Once a feature film is completed and released, the results from the first week come in.
Most production and studio companies find that they need an accurate means of predicting what the film revenue generation will likely be,
In both the initial theatrical and important auxiliary markets.
Even the most advanced film production companies today usually only have "home-grown", if any, tools
Private Investors & Major Studios alike need to know how and where returns will be generated.
Even before completion, the accurate prediction of film theatrical box office and world-wide Breakeven is useful in negotiating deal strategies, terms and conditions.
Until now, no automated tool was available which:
Simultaneously included both the experience of recent knowledge of probable marketplace responses, and
The ability to incorporate changing or unique variables particular to each film genre and release pattern.
Film Revenue Predictor is a scenario generator for
Motion picture producers,
who require an accurate and realistic forecast of a film project's revenues by market.
Using minimal information, Predictor provides likely scenarios for Revenue, Profit and Loss, for a given project (s).
Estimated Project Profit and Loss by Project, Investors/Studio, Exhibitors, and Talent are displayed in a summary model.
This allows almost any combination of deal terms to be incorporated easily.
Predictor allows for the easy insertion of ancillary market dynamic factors as they vary over time, allowing for future update and always-current applicability.
The example Scenario Summary for All Markets shown above is only one of the many charts output by Predictor, and shown here only for Worst Case Analysis.
A complete Profit & Loss Summary with market revenues predicted for each scenario is also generated, which is highly useful for What If? Analysis.
Written in Excel and Visual Basic, Predictor is easily incorporated into most other ODBC-compliant software.
It also functions very well as a stand alone tool, always ready to incorporate dynamic changes into your revenue planning.
Outputs are easy to read and graphically-oriented.
Profit and Loss Breakeven Scenarios can be calculated instantaneously,
Marketing Expense Allocation can be optimized, lowering Distribution cost,
Film Rentals Estimates are produced by Market segment, historically-based,
Revenue by Market (Theatrical, Video, Game, etc.) is automatically displayed,
Finance and Deal Terms can be simulated and optimized to the project needs,
Revenue Scenarios graduated or discrete, are easily input and charted,
Release Patterns can be varied, and the resulting Scenarios analyzed,
Profit Participations by Creative elements are calculated automatically, and

By using Predictor, a studio marketing or top executive can thoroughly examine many choices and release decision strategies.
The optimal ones can be picked for most effective film deployment patterns and highest film rental return patterns.
