Originally shot as a film, the project was re-cut into Amazon ‘Original’ branded TV series on the Prime platform.
Hector: A film starring the award-winning Peter Mullan, covering the story of Hector, a homeless man who embarks on a road trip across the UK. A portrait of an invisible man and an authentic account of homelessness within contemporary Britain, Hector is a powerful character study and a brutally honest account of homelessness.
Alongside these successes Goldfinch has participated in a variety of award-winning films, including James Erskine’s Building Jerusalem; Mad to be Normal starring David Tennant; Burn, Burn, Burn starring Laura Carmichael; My Feral Heart with Steven Brandon; Adult Life Skills starring Jodie Whittaker, The Carer starring Brian Cox, Solis starring Steven Ogg, and That Good Night starring Sir John Hurt and Charles Dance.
Kirsty Bell, MD and Founder at Goldfinch commented: “Starting four years ago, we began with the vision of bringing business principals, transparency and use vanilla structures to the film and media industry, to show that you can make money from investing in this asset class. Now we are very proud to say we have proven a point and will continue to do so in a new and exciting world of film and media investment and opportunities.’
‘Creating and selling a film, TV show or video game is an immensely difficult job requiring an array of skills and people. The support and infrastructure we can offer via Goldfinch is incredibly well received, and required, in order to efficiently and profitably produce high-quality productions that make money.”
“The media industry is one of the biggest drivers of the UK economy and we are seen to be one of the global leaders in the sector. As a successful and savvy investor, we take control of the business cycle to retain control from script to sale. Our approach reduces fees and risk, the success of which can be seen from our initial exit of the Goldfinch Pictures Limited EIS. We view this approach as the gold standard in media investment”.
