  5.  Deliver
  6. Process

1. SUBMIT

To begin, we will need to know some general information about you and your project. Please call us directly or, if you prefer, send us the Picture Information by email.

Next, unless we already know of your financing sources, we will ask you to furnish proof of your funding commitments. Proof of funds (POF) typically takes the form of a short summary describing each financier and investor that has committed to advance production funds, the amount of and, if applicable, any pre-conditions (e.g., script or cast approval, completing pre-sales) to their funding commitments, together with a fully-signed copy of a term-sheet, commitment letter or funding agreement. We do not require all production funds to be on deposit. We simply want proof that you have secured the funding commitments needed to fully cover all budgeted costs of production.
After POF is accepted, we will ask you to submit your key production elements (i.e., screenplay or teleplay(s), budget, shooting schedule and post-production calendar) to our Production Department, and all relevant financing, production and distribution contracts to our Business Affairs Department. Whenever possible, we will assign the same executives to manage your account to promote trust, communication, cooperation and expediency.

2. CONSIDER:

Our Production staff will review your key production elements and any additional Production Information they may request. They are not judging your production’s artistic value or whether they believe it will meet with critical or commercial success. They just want to assess whether the resources (personnel, time and money) that will be made available to you will be adequate for you to produce, complete and deliver your production. The Production Department’s evaluation usually takes about one week to complete. Next, our Production staff will arrange to meet with your production team members (which may include the individual Producer(s), Director, Line Producer, UPM, Production Accountant and department heads) to solicit their ideas and opinions on the budget and schedule including any unusual or challenging conditions. We will exchange recommendations for any warranted adjustments if we believe the level of the crew’s experience and skill, the duration of the shooting or post-production schedule or the budgeted costs of production are insufficient. We know unforeseeable events may befall even the best managed productions. However, during this stage, our mission is to make sure that the production team will have sufficient resources and is thoroughly prepared to manage any anticipated challenges before cameras begin to roll.

At the same time as our Production staff is evaluating your production elements, our in-house Business Affairs staff will evaluate your legal rights and obligations under the relevant financing, production and distribution contracts. This usually takes about one week to complete.

If we are confident that your production team has the experience, expertise and skill, and you have secured the contractual rights and financing needed to produce, complete and deliver the production within the available resources, then we will “underwrite” your project. This is an internal process during which we approve your submission and undertake to issue the completion bond for your production subject to legal documentation.

3. DOCUMENT:

Once we underwrite your production, our in-house Business Affairs staff will ask you to furnish Legal Information and will start to prepare and negotiate the Completion GuarantyCompletion Agreement and other related legal documents including the Director’s UndertakingCompletion Guarantor’s Power of AttorneyProducer’s Power of Attorney and Copyright Mortgage and Assignment. You will also need to furnish (or have your insurance broker-agent furnish) proof that you have obtained the Basic Insurance Coverages.

The legal counsel representing each financier or investor in your production will prepare their respective Funding Agreements and collateral assignments or charges. Typically the legal counsel representing your principal financier will prepare Interparty Agreements, Intercreditor Agreements, Notices of Assignment, Letters of Credit, Laboratory Control Agreements and Deposit Account Control Agreements, as may be applicable. Whenever practical, we will use pre-negotiated contracts to help streamline and expedite the legal documentation process.

4. TRACK:

Once the legal documents are fully signed, we will monitor the progress of production from the start of principal photography through post-production and delivery by checking call sheets, wrap reports, production reports and cost reports.

We recognize every production is different and some require greater service and support than others.We will adjust the level of our involvement as it is needed or requested. Our staff has encountered a wide variety of production difficulties. They are able to recognize the routine rigors of production without overreacting or feeling the need to intervene. If complications should arise,we approach each challenge with level heads and practical, collaborative solutions.

5. DELIVER:

We have expertise and experience in fulfilling film, television and new media delivery and distribution requirements. Upon completion of post-production, we will work together with your internal or external post-production supervisor to ensure all bonded delivery materials are properly manufactured and presented to principal distributors.

If necessary, we will assist you in correcting and resubmitting any missing or defective items. In most cases, we and your distributors will agree to resolve any delivery disputes by binding, expedited arbitration.

6. PROCESS:

Our completion bonds are currently being issued directly by Atlantic Specialty Insurance Company (ASIC), which is an admitted carrier and one of OneBeacon’s highly-rated and financially strong underwriting companies. ASIC takes full responsibility for adjusting claims and paying 100% of any completion bond losses. Accordingly, your financiers and investors, (1) should only need to confirm ASIC’s excellent financial strength rating and avoid the need to pore over the financial strength ratings of numerous insurance and reinsurance companies, and (2) will not have to separately resolve and enforce claims through multiple actions, in various jurisdictions against multiple reinsurers, which is often a prerequisite to any loss recoveries when dealing with other bond companies. Furthermore, OneBeacon has a dedicated claims department with the expertise and experience to investigate and resolve any claim that may arise under our completion bonds. They will provide the forms, instructions, and assistance needed to process any claim. The UniFi team will provide its collective expertise, knowledge, and experience to help to ensure every claim is properly adjusted and quickly paid. UniFi’s re/insurance structure is designed to give you and your financiers and investors extreme legal and financial protection and security.

  1. – 提交
  2. – 审核与评估
  3. – 法律文件
  4. – 制作追踪
  5. – 影片交付
  6. – 担保过程

1. 提交申请

首先,我们需要了解一些关于您和您项目的一般信息。请直接致电我们,或者通过电子邮件将影片信息发送给我们。

接下来,若我们还不知道您的融资来源的话,那么我们需要您提供资金证明。资金证明(POF)通常采用简短摘要的形式,其中包括每个融资方和投资者所承诺的提前支付的拍摄资金、具体数额,如果有可能,也可在投资承若书中列出其他的前提条件(例如,脚本或选定的演员,完成的预付款等),以及完整签署的条款清单,承诺函或资金协议副本。我们不要求全部投资金额的定金,我们只是需要您已经获得了完全涵盖所有预算成本所需的资金承诺的证明。

在资金证明(POF)评估通过后,我们会要求您向我们的制作部门提供您的主要制片要素(即:剧本或电视剧、预算、拍摄时间表和后期制作日程表),以及向我们的业务部提交所有相关的融资、制作和发行的合同。只要有可能,我们将指派相同的管理人员来管理维护您的帐户,以促进双方信任,沟通与合作。

2. 审核与评估:

我们的工作人员将浏览评估您的主要拍片要素,以及他们可能要求的任何其他拍摄信息。但他们不会判断您作品的艺术价值,也不会评判其是否会取得关键性的或商业上的成功。他们需要评估您的资源(人员,时间和金钱)是否让您的作品得以顺利拍摄、完成和交付。制片部门的评估通常需要一周时间才能完成

接下来,我们的工作人员将安排与您的制作团队成员会面(其中可能包括独立制片人、导演,制片统筹,制片主任,制作组会计和部门负责人),并征求他们对预算和时间表的想法和意见,包括可能出现的不寻常或富有挑战的条件和情况。如果我们认为剧组人员的经验和技能水平、拍摄时间或后期制作时间表,或预算生产成本不足的话,我们会就任何必要的调整再做交换建议。我们知道即使某个项目是由最出色的团队在进行制作,期间也可能会发生不可预见的事件。但是,在此阶段,我们的任务是确保剧组拥有足够的资源,并在开机之前做好充分准备,以应对任何预期的挑战

在我们的工作人员评估您的制片要素的同时,我们的内部业务人员将评估您在相关融资,制片和发行合同下的合法权利和义务。这通常需要一周左右的时间才能完成。

如果我们确信您的团队拥有丰富的经验、专业知识和技能,并且您已获得在可用资源内拍摄、完成和交付所需的合同权利和融资,那么我们将“承保”您的项目。这是一个内部流程,在此过程中,我们批准您提交的申请,并承诺根据法律文件为您的拍摄做完片担保。

 

3. 法律文件:

 

一旦我们承保您的拍摄,我们的内部业务人员将要求您提供法律信息,并将开始准备和具体协谈完片担保,完片协议和其他相关法律文件,包括董事的承诺完成担保人的授权书,制片人的版授权书版权抵押和转让。您(或让您的保险经纪人 – 代理人)还需要提供证明您已获得基本保险承保范围

关于您拍片项目的每个融资方或投资者的法律顾问将准备他们各自的资金协议和抵押品分配或费用。通常,代表您的主要融资人的法律顾问将准备可能适用的Interparty协议,Intercreditor协议,转让通知,信用证,实验室控制协议和存款账户控制协议。如果可能的话,我们将使用预先商定的合同帮助简化和加快法律文件流程

 

4. 制作追踪:

一旦法律文件全部签署,我们将通过检查电话单,包装报告,拍摄报告和成本报告的方式,来监控从主要摄影开始到后期制作和交付的生产进度。

我们知道每种制片都是不同的,有些需要更多的服务和支持。我们将根据需要或要求调整我们的参与程度。我们的员工遇到过各种各样拍摄中出现的困难,他们也了解日常拍片的严格程度,所以不会过度反应或做出干预。如果一旦出现复杂情况,我们将采用平台和实用的协作解决方案来应对每一项挑战。

 

5. 影片交付:

我们在实现电影、电视和新媒体交付与发行要求方面拥有丰富的专业知识和经验。完成后期制作后,我们将与您的内部或外部后期制作主管合作,确保所有保税交付材料均已正确制造并呈交给主要发行商。

如有必要,我们将协助您纠正并重新提交任何遗失或有缺陷的物品。在大多数情况下,我们和您的发行商将同意通过约束性,快速仲裁解决任何交付纠纷

 

6. 担保过程:

我们的完片担保目前由Atlantic Specialty Insurance Company(ASIC)直接发行,该公司是一家公认的承运人,也是OneBeacon的高评级和财务实力雄厚的承销公司之一。 ASIC全权负责调整索赔并支付100%的完片担保损失。因此,您的融资方和投资者:

(1)应该只需要确认ASIC的优秀财务实力评级,并避免对众多保险和再保险公司的财务实力评级进行审查,

(2)不必单独解决和执行通过针对多个再保险公司的多个司法管辖区的多项诉讼提出索赔,这通常是与其他担保公司打交道时任何损失赔偿的先决条件。

此外,OneBeacon拥有专门的理赔部门,拥有专业知识和经验,可以调查和解决我们的完片担保可能产生的任何索赔。他们将提供处理任何索赔所需的表格、说明和帮助。 UniFi团队将提供其集体专业知识和经验以帮助确保每项索赔得到适当调整和快速支付。 UniFi的再保险/保险结构旨在为您和您的融资方、投资者提供最好的法律保障和财务保护
