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.

About Julian Bushell

Founder of Non-Multiplex Cinema and creator of FILM MEANS BUSINESS. Now starting a new way to make film called "Blur the line". It takes the workshop environment of experimentation and learning and marries that with cinema quality equipment, filming at actual locations when possible. The end result is a scene the same as or as close as possible to the quality of a real production.
