Peacock acts as a gatekeeper and introducer of potential film financiers taking a small fee and a possible considered percentage of the back end. We do not charge any up front fees and will only claim our fees once investment has been received and the film has legally closed. Peacock presents a limited number of carefully curated film projects to our investors on a regular basis. Investors are able to invest in single projects or on a slate basis. Peacock can work with producers at all stages of the film financing journey; however the more finance in place the more likely our investors will wish to be involved.
