Tuesday 29th April, was the premier of Gateway Films´ latest production “Plastic” and The Wealth Advisory were in attendance at the Odeon in Leicester Square along with some selected clients.
As well as The Wealth Advisory, many celebrities made an appearance, including the films lead actors Ed Speleers, BAFTA-winner Will Poulter and the gorgeous Emma Rigby. The film has also attracted interest from the major corporations in the market with Paramount securing the UK rights early on. They have been actively promoting the film over the past few months, with prime time TV adverts, posters, adverts in the UK press and magazines, all culminating in this high profile premier in Leicester Square.
“Plastic” is based on a true story of a group of friends who managed to infiltrate one of the biggest credit card companies in the world and somehow pull off a diamond heist on a scale never seen before in British history. Producer Terry Stone believes it is this fact that will make it even more appealing to the public, to think that in this day and age that credit card companies can still be penetrated.
“When I first took the script to some initial meetings, people told me it was too unrealistic and unbelievable, that was until I told them this actually happened and I had spent a few months with a member of the gang who pulled it off, gathering as much information and detail as I could.”
With this film set to be a huge international success, Gateway Films are already working on their next few projects, with funds being raised for both The Messenger and Away through The Wealth Advisory, the former of which is likely to be released before the end of the year.
Managing Director of The Wealth Advisory, David Martin is very optimistic about the future.
“Working with a company such as Gateway is fantastic for us and our clients; there is an unlimited upside with negated risk and these guys just seem to have a model that works in making successful films”
Gateway Films structure their film projects uniquely in that they try to alleviate as much risk for the investor as possible. They have a 100% record of producing films on time and on budget which separates them from the competition and additionally with HMRC EIS Tax incentives in place, the potential downside is limited making it a hugely exciting prospect for all involved.
