Thanks to the streamers (Netflix, HBO, Disney+), there is a huge demand for video content.

Barry Films decided to securitize a specific portion of their business, and that is development.
This means taking ideas and concepts to the stage at which you can take them to markets and finance a film or TV series.
"The main difference in our strategy is the focus on development as opposed to production. This allows investors to take part in the value generated without taking on the risk of financing production and the risk of success."
