Top 3 tips from Matthew Helderman of BondIt Media Capital for filmmakers

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent

Distance learning is all the rage with the pandemic making shut-ins of most of us. That said, BondIt CEO Matthew Helderman agreed to have his brain picked for a quick trio of tips for filmmakers. MelFORCEOFNATURE2020

BondIt has worked on such projects as FORCE OF NATURE, starring Emile Hirsch, Mel Gibson, and David Zayas, directed by Michael Polish
. BondIt Executive Produced FORCE OF NATURE by providing pre-sales and tax credit financing to cover the cost of the production.

For HARD KILL, starring Bruce Willis, Jesse Metcalfe, Sergio Rizzuto, directed by Matt Eskandari, BondIt Executive Produced in this same capacity. 

Since it took Helderman about 20 seconds to reply, this prompt hands-on style will be a welcome thing for working on your film. He was also able to provide links to valuable resources that may tip the balance to get your project off the ground. 

Top 3 Tips

Q: What advice would you give first-time filmmakers? 

Matthew Helderman: We have actually written extensively about this in our SCRIBD eBook series.

Q: How do you help very low budget films, or are they in your sphere? 

Matthew Helderman: I suggest checking out the B8 Services division for how best we get involved and assist with lower budget content from development through packaging + production and in to distribution. Link here.

Q: How do these creatives contact you directly or your team for questions? 

Matthew Helderman: Feel free to reach out via email.

BondIt has also worked with recent noteworthy projects such as THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON, starring Shia LaBeouf, newcomer Zack Gottsagen, Dakota Johnson, John Hawkes, Bruce Dern, Jon Bernthal and Thomas Haden.



BondIt is able to work with filmmakers across the spectrum of experience and pedigree; our company was built on assisting and providing value to early stage filmmakers with the same dedication that we provide our world-class clients. If your project financing opportunity has a significant element of unencumbered collateral (i.e. An asset without any lien or “charge”), BondIt would be pleased to consider financing your project.
