Independent film financing company, The Forest Road Company, and leading equipment and post-production facility, Technicolor PostWorks, are announcing the official launch of their strategic partnership.
The purpose of the partnership is to provide independent filmmakers with state-of-the-art production equipment and post production services. As a leading production and post-production provider committed to turning filmmakers’ footage into effective, moving narratives, Technicolor PostWorks will be able to ensure Forest Road projects are completed in a cost-effective and efficient way. Forest Road offers low-cost financing options for tax-related collateral, and this partnership will help filmmakers through another crucial step of the production process. Filmmakers who use Forest Road’s lending platform will now have direct and priority access to Technicolor PostWorks facilities and services.
The partnership will be co-managed by Eric Boshart and Carol Jazwinski, who has officially joined the Forest Road team as of today. The teams have offices in both New York and Los Angeles.
“We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Carol to our team and partner with such a fantastic group that has decades of experience. Adding their services to our lending platform will make us more competitive and will further our offering as a one-stop shop solution for our clients. I am confident that with their presence in the independent film space and our access to capital, we will accomplish a lot together,” said Zachary Tarica, Founder of The Forest Road Company.
“We immediately recognized Forest Road Company’s unique approach to supporting filmmakers both economically and through powerful partnerships and we were eager to bring picture and sound finishing to the mix. Leveraging FRC’s innovation and pipeline along with our creative talent and years of film finishing experience affords filmmakers new and powerful opportunities,” says Rob DeMartin, President/COO of Technicolor PostWorks.
Technicolor PostWorks has most recently provided finishing services to Barry Jenkins’ If Beale Street Could Talk, Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 11/9, and Disney Studio’s Mary Poppins Returns, directed by Rob Marshall.
Forest Road most recently provided financing for Skin starring Jamie Bell, which had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, and Driveways, directed by Andrew Ahn.
Jeffrey Assaf and David Rosen negotiated the deal.
