An Independent Project can be a risky business. Any one making a loan to an Independent Filmmaker/Producer/Investor will probably require a Guarantee signed by a Guarantor. The situation in which a Guarantee is most typically required is when the ability of the Independent Filmmaker/Producer/Investor to perform her/his/their obligations under an Agreement is in question, or when there is some public or private interest, which requires protection from the consequences of the Independent Filmmaker/Producer/Investor’s default or delinquency.
A Guarantor is the person(s) who agrees to be responsible (guarantees payment) for the debt or obligation of another, the Independent Filmmaker/Producer/Investor.
