During our initial campaign in 2015 we received more than 150,000 EUR by crowdfunding on IndieGoGo and crowdinvesting on this website. A huge success that initiated the first-ever live-action film adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s Dream Cycle.
Production was planned to begin in 2016 and be completed till 2020, but things developed differently. After a complete screenplay rewriting funded by our regional film board and ultimately ill-fated negotiations with established producers and film production companies we decided to get back on track and conducted a first block of shooting in late summer 2018.
Now, with a brand-new trailer, some light bruises and many lessons learned we have to ask you for support again. We need at least 25,000 EUR more to be able to complete this project. The screenplay has changed dramatically throughout the years and the first block of shooting clearly showed us that we have to calculate more conservatively in the future.
If you want us to continue this journey with more security and a higher probability of quality and success, please consider the following investment model. It allows investors to take part in the film’s potential success and to share in any possible profits and returns. The key points are listed below. Please fill out the form and return it to us if you are interested so that we can, in return, send you the contractual documents and further information concerning the crowdinvestment program.
In a silent partnership (stille Gesellschaft), an investor has a financial participation in another commercial business. As the name indicates, a silent partnership is not a legal entity by itself. Therefore, except for an investment in a stock corporation, a silent partnership is not registered in any official register and allows the investor to avoid disclosure of his investment. The contribution of a silent partner is a mere financial investment in another commercial business and therefore not considered as equity. Depending on the contractual basis, a silent partner most commonly may participate in profits and losses or in profits only. As any other lender, a silent partner has no voting rights in the business in which he has invested.
Profits from a silent partnership are taxed as capital gains in Germany (around 25%, annual tax exemption: 801 EUR). Investors from other countries may be eligible for capital gains tax relief.
