In order for the completion guarantor to assess the viability of a project they will require the following:
• a production schedule.
Most completion guarantors prefer that these documents are initially approved by the intended financiers and distributors for the film.
Once the completion guarantor has reviewed these documents, they may wish to meet with certain key personnel such as the line producer, director, production accountant, production supervisor, stunt co-ordinator or anyone else that the company feels is relevant for the film.
The completion guarantor will ensure that the experience of those involved is sufficient to complete the Film within the budget and schedule. If the completion guarantor feels uncomfortable with any personnel then they will suggest another suitably qualified person.
Once the completion guarantor is satisfied with the various elements set out above, they will issue a letter of intent. (See end of chapter for sample letter.)
