The future for low-budget independent films continues to look impressive, as their commercial viability has increased steadily over the recent years.
Faith-based film industry is a growing, profitable part of the entertainment industry, and more producers and executives are entering into this market. In 2015 “War Room,” with its $3 million budget, grossed $67.8 million at the box-office. “Miracles From Heaven” and “Risen” have generated strong revenues even though they opened only a few weeks apart.
“It’s easy to put these movies on the side,” said , box-office analyst at ComScore, Paul Dergarabedian. “But it’s hard to ignore movies that are this successful on a regular basis. I feel like this genre is really coming into its own.”
Mainstream producers, directors and actors are starting to attach themselves to such movies as the box-office promise grows. In 2011 Dennis Quaid starred in “Soul Surfer.” Joe Roth, Hollywood blockbusters staple, produced “Miracles From Heaven” and “Heaven Is for Real.” Director of Warner Bros. Chilean movie “The 33,” Patricia Riggen, directed Miracles.”
In 2004 “Passion of the Christ” proved there is a strong interest in religious films.
That movie, with its $30 million budget, ended up making more than $611 million worldwide. “Heaven Is for Real,” starring Greg Kinnear, earned $91 million in domestic ticket sales.
God’s Not Dead, the 2014 American Christian drama film directed by Harold Cronk and starring Kevin Sorbo, grossed over $62 million on a $2 million budget.
Studios and cinemas have also gone the new route of selling tickets in places of worship. Mel Gibson’s 2004 film “The Passion of the Christ” grossed $370 million in the U.S. and Canada, also thanks to churches that drove the faithful to cinemas.

We have a range of feature film projects in development across all genres and we are dedicated to offering the highest standards in service and delivery to ensure that each of our investor’s needs are met.
Investing in films doesn’t sound so risky anymore, now that we’ve seen how risky investing in real estate, in the stock market, and even putting money in the banks can be. In fact, owning a piece of a movie is more substantial than owning a piece of a house built like a matchbox, owning stocks in a company with all its products manufactured abroad, or having money in a bank that loans money to even enemies of Country.
One thing for sure is: revenues from films do not stop at the box office. Nowadays more and more money is made from DVD sales, Cable, Satellite and terrestrial TV networks, and the stream of revenues keeps on flowing for the years to come.
Investors who see the bigger picture and do not stop at the theaters tickets sales, who recognize and support true long-term marketable projects as opposed to fast-food cinema are the ones who make the safest bet in the movie industry. The Soob Productions offers the platform, the means and the creativity to make this bet as easy as possible.
Our feature films Eva’s Diamond, The Unfatomable Mr Jones (Part 1 & Part 2) serve as a warrant for quality of storytelling and while being micro-budget projects, they show the Soob’s potential as film-makers team.
We feel that the time is right and that the window of opportunity is open for micro to medium-budgeted motion pictures with investments between £100k and £3m.
