Now that you know what you want to do, you will need to do a lot of research. This is key. If you are doing commercial or industrial work, then you need to research your local area and gauge who else is doing this same type of work. Use a site like Production Hub to help aid in your research. Pay attention to the services and fees that other companies provide and charge.

Creating the name for your production company is key. This will eventually become your brand. So make it good and make it something relevance to you. Make sure your company stands out for research and make sure everything is legal. Once you have your name hammered out, you need to begin looking ahead. One thing you need to be aware of is that you are eventually going to want to trademark the name. Now, this doesn't sound like a big deal, but it is. For example, years ago I applied for a trademark for my production company. However, another company had a name close to what I had created. They were also using the same classification code I was applying for because of this. I was not awarded the trademark and have to start all over. Be very creative with your name and then check that name against the used her trademark database, scour the Internet for already established companies. You'll eventually want to contact an attorney who works with trademark law. They can do a comprehensive search and help you file for your trademark. Five. Decide what type of company you'll be. We know what you want to do with your company. We know the name, but now what type of company are you going to be? Confused. It's so okay. I was two when the question was posed to me.
You want to decide early on if you need to be a DBI, A LLC, C Corp, s corp, etc.. This decision is going to affect the cost of filing to do business. It will also affect your tax filings as well. Check out this information from the Small Business Administration. Six, Find a certified public accountant. Now that you have your name and your structure, you will need to find someone to help you navigate the world of accounting for your business. This is not something you want to do yourself. Hire a certified public accountant. A good CPA will not only help you figure out what will be required of you when tax season comes around, but they can help you set a realistic strategy for your business as well. With all of this said, don't just pick the first CPA that you find. Go in and sit with them and talk with them. Find out if they are the right fit for you. Research them online and look for reviews from others who have used their services. You're going to be working very closely with your CPA. So find the one that is right for you and your company. Try using the CPA directory to get started. Or just Google CPA is in your area.
Seven, create your business plan. Every business needs a plan. Production company is no different.
This is the time when you want to take the short and long term goals you set for yourself and turn them into a business plan, get really detailed and try to map out your path for the next three to five years. Give the description of your production company, what area of the industry it will focus on and who will be running it. Also include all of the research and market analysis you did in the beginning that helped you determine what type of production company you will be, a business plan is a must have for any business, and it's a great way to gauge your progress and keep that progress on track.
Eight consultant attorney.
Once you get rolling and want to take it to the next level, you're going to need representation. While this shouldn't be one of the last things you do, it usually is the costliest. So it tends to get put off for as long as possible. Don't wait too long to consult with and find an attorney to represent you. At some point you are going to need them. Better to have them in place early than too late. Just like the CPA and trademark lawyer. Take your time meeting and researching attorneys. You want someone who is going to work hard for you. One way to find a good corporate or company attorney is to talk to people, you know, in the industry, gauge their recommendations and then go from there nine to cure start up capital. Next to creating the name of your company. The hardest thing to do is to secure startup capital for your company. If you're working in commercial and industrial, you will need a certain level of equipment, which means you will need money. I've never been a fan of taking out loans, but I've seen some people do this and capitalize on it to start a really successful business.
For film production companies, there are all sorts of venture capitalists out there looking for ways to expand their portfolio. One of the good things about being in film is that preproduction is usually going to be the cheapest part of the process. With that said, you might be able to float this part of the project and get something together that can impress potential investors. Just be sure to have a well-developed presentation before you go into these meetings. If you can show that you have the scale and development to pull this off, then you should be able to secure some sort of funding for your film. Ten, get out there and spread your name. The biggest part about our business and this industry is networking. You really can't ever talk too much about your project and your production company.
