The Media Development Lounge arrived on the film funding scene in September 2014. Charlie Jules Wood is behind the company and it was his dream to create a one-stop-shop for film producers, directors and studios to find funding for their cinematic dreams. The Media Development Lounge has created a transparent and simple avenue for private investors to become involved in the film and documentary investment arena. We have made the entire process exceptionally easy to understand by producing an easy to follow 5 step guide and various other brochures and reports that should furnish even a complete newcomer to film and documentaries with a clear introduction to this market.
The Media Development Lounge started in grand style by securing the rights to raise the funds for several Feature Documentaries that were to be made by the legendary Film and Documentary Producer and Director Jon Brewer. (Jon Brewer has guided the careers of several stars, including David Bowie, Mick Taylor, Gerry Rafferty, and Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones. Among his accolades from the music industry are multiple Ivor Novello awards – See the Jon Brewer section on our site for more information
The Media Development Lounge has already raised in excess of $1M for Jon Brewer’s studios and is currently working on funding for his 18th documentary.
