Hey guys, I'm interested in selling units to fund my film, but does anyone have a sample contract used for that? I've broken it down, by untis, what you get, etc. etc. but don't have a contract to put it all in.

Thanks.

You need an attorney to help you with this. Find a PPM (private placement memorandum) online somewhere and/or a business plan that spells out exactly what to do. There are many laws and rules that govern selling shares, stock, units...ownership, whatever and you don't want to get in trouble before you even get started.

Find a contracts attorney near you or check with the nearby lawyers for the arts org (or some such entity, SBA, etc) and they can steer you toward folks willing to work for cheap and or free.

Good luck, hope this helps. I'm not an attorney but I play one on tv.:)
