Seven Arts Pictures plc, an independent motion picture production and distribution company, is focused on producing and licensing motion pictures in the United Kingdom and internationally. Based in London, the United Kingdom, Seven Arts Pictures plc operates in Europe, North America, South America, Africa and Middle East, Asia, and Australia.
The company leverages proprietary and non-proprietary structures in the US, Canada, UK, and Hungary to reduce film production costs. Seven Arts Pictures takes advantage of tax motivated financing structures to subsidize and support film production. The company also reduces its financial risk by pre-selling certain domestic and international rights to distributors before production commences.
Seven Arts Pictures does not anticipate wide US theatrical release for many of its pictures. Instead, the company will derive the majority of its revenues from pre-sale agreements payable upon delivery of the movie. The company has also positioned itself to benefit from expected revenues generated from digital sales when technology changes and consumers download movies directly.
The management team at Seven Arts Pictures has a wealth of experience in the film industry, including financing transactions, risk management, film production and distribution. Management has been directly involved in many successful feature films such as Terminator 2, Basic Instinct, Total Recall, Rambo, Rambo III, Platoon, The Big Easy, Johnny Mnemonic and Showgirls.
