Movie investing today is for all??

Spike Lee, Zack Braff, and Kristen Bell are just some of the names linked to fan or private funded film projects. Anyone now can be involved in the movie business, or at least with helping a movie get made, with possible small returns. I myself have provided funding for several projects via Kickstarter and Indiegogo in return for a copy of the film at a later date, a potential part, and/or credit listing if I contributed enough. I have a few friends who are involved in the film industry and they say that you can never have enough funding, very true. PE and VC folks are definitely stepping up but what and where to invest is the big question.

Why is this important now??? As of Monday the Fed allows companies to now raise up to $1 million across state lines without prior approval from the Securities and Exchange Commission. That means it gives non-accredited investors, or really most of us, another way to be in the mix of high-risk, high-return startup investments usually only available to the PE’s and VC’s of the world. Investors with annual incomes of less than $100,000 are limited in how much they can put into startups under these new rules. They can invest $2,000 or 5 percent of their annual income or net worth, whichever is less.

I provided a list of sources below but some of these do more than movies but have fun searching for the correct project.
