Michael Axelgaard – Managing Director of Indie Capital

Michael’s background is in banking, where he managed investments and arranged financing for structured debt and equity deals at ING Bank and Bank of America Merrill Lynch. He also produced and managed the fundraise and investment realisation of the Hollow Pictures EIS, a special purpose vehicle created to finance the independent film Hollow. Hollow was nominated for a British Independent Film Award and distributed by Tribeca film, and the film generated both strong investment returns and tax benefits for investors. On the back of this success, Michael is launching a new media production company called Indie Capital, which will produce a portfolio of independent films, television, and digital content. Indie Capital’s team includes producers behind Oscar-winning independent films from the UK and investment managers who have a track record of making investors money. The goal of Indie Capital is to combine a strong creative pipeline with a rigorous financial approach and to promote UK independent media content to the world.

MICHAEL DEELEY is an Academy Award winning British movie producer with a singular Midas touch – nearly all of his pictures have attracted avid cult followings. He has worked with some of the world’s toughest film directors and lived to tell the tale. Few would imagine that one man links Ridley Scott’s visionary sci-fi classic BLADE RUNNER, Michael Cimino’s THE DEER HUNTER, and THE ITALIAN JOB, the much loved British caper that made an icon of Sir Michael Caine. His other challenges included defending the legendary sex scene of Nick Roeg’s DON’T LOOK NOW, ordering the controversial cutting of the original THE WICKER MAN, trekking up a New Mexico mountainside with David Bowie on THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH and seizing control of CONVOY from Sam Peckinpah. Michael Deeley was also the Owner of British Lion Films, President of EMI Films Inc. and is currently Honorary President of The British Screen Advisory Council.

MATTHEW FIELD began his writing career with ‘The Making Of The Italian Job.’ He has since produced and directed a feature length documentary on the film for Paramount Pictures. Matthew currently works for the leading entertainment public relations agency Premier PR overseeing the production of international press junkets, EPKs and associated film marketing materials. His most recent feature film credits include Stephen Frears’ upcoming Lance Armstrong biopic ICON, Michael Winterbottom’s THE FACE OF AN ANGEL, the Australian teen comedy NOW ADD HONEY and, currently in production, THE DRESSMAKER, starring Kate Winslet. Field collaborated with Deeley on his memoir, Blade Runners, Deer Hunters And Blowing The Bloody Doors Off, published in the UK by Faber & Faber.
