Putting you in the director’s chair of your finances.
is All About
Find money in your budget by eliminating unnecessary expenses using Production Accounting techniques like a Hollywood Producer would.
Protect the wealth you accumulate over time, so that you don’t fall prey to economic downturns or inflation from massive money printing. You can start this process now, even if you don’t have a lot of money.
“Your heart is free. Have the courage to follow it.”
-from the movie Braveheart.
- Use the same strategies big movie studios use to become financially free.
- This is not your financial planner’s strategy using 401k’s or RRSP’s as a vehicle toward retirement!
- These are investments that bring in monthly income rather than saving for a finite amount of money that is subject to the ups and downs of the stock market.
- This is money you can use NOW, with tax breaks NOW to help you retire early.
As Braveheart would say in a cool Scottish accent, “It’s all for nothin if you don’t have freedom.”
How Does It Work
Learn the rules of money, past and present. The rules of money change roughly every 40 years on average and I believe we are in the midst of another world monetary reset. It is important to learn about money, so that you can play by the rules and you can eventually have money work for you instead of working for money.
Production Accounting is an essential role to keep producers on track throughout the course of making a film. It is necessary to reconcile expenses that occur throughout the week, month and year to ensure the film stays on budget. Learn to use the same principles and tools to help reign in your spending without living like a popper.
The term “residuals” is used in the acting community as a way to bring in steady income many months or years after a gig. I like to find investments that bring in residuals rather than hope for appreciation.
To name a few of these….
-Dividend paying stocks
-Building a business
HOW MUCH WILL THIS COST?
Let me ask you this…
Hi, I’m Ryan Pollreisz. Through my 25 year career in the film industry, I have seen a lot of ups and downs. I started out as a Production Assistant after film school and worked my way up the ladder in the visual effects industry. Through the years, the industry began to get outsourced to other countries and ultimately whichever country had the biggest tax credit. The biggest tax credit was in Vancouver, BC at the time and I was made head of studio to open that facility for Rhythm and Hues Studios in 2011. Unfortunately, our move was one of the last to arrive in Vancouver and the company couldn’t catch up to the 30% reduction in visual effect bids. The Los Angeles company went bankrupt in 2013 and literally 2 weeks later we won the academy award for Life of Pi.
