Braveship Media is a media investment consulting group dedicated to bringing stories to life across multiple media, including books, film, and video games. We believe entertainment intellectual property is an under-capitalized asset class that offers investors opportunities to earn long-lasting returns. The digital age offers more opportunities in distribution than ever before, and content remains in high demand by top and mid-tier distributors. We use sophisticated econometrics to help forecast investment performance, assist with financial modeling needs, and help with structure debt and equity transactions, typically involving the marketing (P&A, or "prints and advertising") or production of content. Our group has executive produced and structured financing for wide release film, structured a $100m fund, and consulted on projects with collective budgets in excess of $200m. Our partners include:
Braveship structured the marketing financing for the wide-release film God Bless the Broken Road, whose distributors include Freestyle Releasing (theatrical) and Lionsgate (home entertainment). The film was produced by Andy Fraser, directed by Harold Cronk, and stars Lindsay Pulsipher, Makenzie Moss, and Andrew Walker.
Braveship Books, our partner imprint, is home to multiple #1 New York Times bestselling authors and award-winning writers. Several of our books are in various stages of pre-production as major motion pictures.
