What we do..
BCL was founded in 2017 when 3 like minded entrepreneurs discovered a win-win-win formula which at its core gives Producers & Directors piece of mind that all agreed post production services / costs will be covered by BCL.
With a solid foundation of industry knowledge and entrepreneurial drive BCL is seeking more and more projects to green light each year. With bases in Los Angeles, New York, London & Barcelona BCL has a global list of projects and partners covering budgets low to high.
BCL are used to working with the very best facilities in the world to ensure our filmmaker partners get the best possible results, on time and on budget.
BCL only works with the best possible facilities and currently has partners operating in Spain, UK & USA, with a view to expand its network further.
BCL sources investment opportunities seeking to fill a gap in its finance plan and structures its investment with an appropriate recoupment position and percentage of the film profits - negotiated on a project by project basis.
BCL can work with bonded film projects, we have had good results where troubled films could not attain traditional completion financing, however a BCL deal ensured the films completion.
BCL sources film projects from its network of talent agencies, international sales companies, and direct producer relationships that are seeking equity financing.
