"A unique and insightful book! Producers will benefit from it just as much as investors will, as it helps to unlock the secrets of making smart film investments, and profitable financial structures."

Clark Peterson
Producer of the Academy Award-winning Monster and numerous other films

"This book captures the essence of independent film financing like nothing else I've read before. I've produced and executive produced over 25 features films and 2 TV series in my 30 year career. I was also a Sales Agent and Development and Acquisitions executive for many years. I wish I had that book when I started; It reveals many best practices that investors should absolutely be aware of."

Paco Alvarez, Film & TV executive, Forward Motion Entertainment

"René's book is a must-read for anyone that wants to understand better where the value lies in producing film whether you are an investor, producer or academic. And unlike most "must read" books this one is as readable as it is rewarding"

Michael, Hennessy, President and CEO of the Canadian Media Production Association (CMPA)

"Even though originally intended for investment professionals, the book "INVESTING IN FILMS" is a useful guide even for a filmmaker and "indie-producer" like me. I read the book last summer, during the initial phase of the production of a film that will soon be released. It has extended my understanding of the flow of creativity/production/distribution that constitutes the making of a film, allowing me to escape from my territorial and limited dimension while helping me to reach a more professional level, even though my project is self-managed and self-financed. Precision, effectiveness, conciseness, clarity and rhythm: these are the qualities that allow you to finish this book in an afternoon and to keep it as a useful and easy to access reminder in the months to come. I realized that rigorous investors can improve the chances of a film project to find its audience successfully with more sharpness, strength and clarity. Just like René Bourdages style."

Christine Reinhold, Artistic Director - Founder, Teatro Primo Studio - Film Beyond
