Companists finance completion of WIE MÄNNER ÜBER FRAUEN REDEN - nationwide movie release imminent


Dear Companists,


One year ago, 747 Companists contributed EUR 403,505 for the completion of the urban comedy WIE MÄNNER ÜBER FRAUEN REDEN. On 12 May 2016, NFP marketing & distribution and Warner Bros. will release the movie in cinemas throughout Germany. Many Companists will already be able to enjoy the fruits of their investment at the world premiere in Berlin on 03 May.



Well-known movie stars and the everyday insanity of love

The movie is about five friends (DJ, Martini, Frankie, Marco and Tine) in Berlin who experience the everyday insanity that is love, with all its misunderstandings, emotions and low blows. Together, they try to figure out how to hit it off with the opposite sex - and possibly find the love of their lives. The movie features well-known stars such as Grimme award winner Oliver Korittke and German movie award winner Frederick Lau. The other actors are Kida Ramadan, Barnaby Metschurat and Ellenie Salvo González.




Producers opt for a new direction in movie production

The producers, Björn Birg and Henrik Regel, produced the movie with their own capital and investments by several friends and long-term business partners.

When the equity-based crowdfunding round was launched on Companisto (28 April 2015), the movie was already available in the draft version. This was the first time that Companists were given the opportunity to invest in a movie.

The aim of the financing round was to realize post-production, the soundtrack and all necessary marketing measures. The producers offered the investors a share in the sale of cinema tickets and in all other exploitation proceeds.


When the crowd leads you to success

The audience will determine the movie's economic success. In most cases, movies are only shown in cinemas for a few weeks after the theatrical release. Afterward, exploitation through other media such as DVD and Blu-ray starts.

This is also where our crowd-based approach comes into play again because together, we are strong and have a much wider reach. We would be very happy if you watched our movie when it is released and supported us on social media.



As the movie's producers, we are really looking forward to the release in Germany. For us, the exciting movie marketing period is now beginning, and we will be able to fully use our network's strengths. Of course, we would also be very pleased if the crowd supported us during this period - making movies is a team effort!


Best regards,

Henrik Regel & Björn Birg

Investments in startups and growth companies offer great opportunities, but they are risk investments. In the worst case, the entire investment amount may be lost. Consequently, investments in startups or growth companies are unsuitable for retirement plans. However, there is no obligation to make further contributions. Investors can minimize their risk by diversifying the amount they invest in startups and growth companies and not investing the entire amount in one startup or growth company. Professional investors often follow this strategy because it causes the risk to be distributed among several investments. In this way, successful investments can balance other less successful investments.

The shares of the investors on Companisto are subordinated profit-participating loans (partiarische Nachrangdarlehen). Such loans are shares in a business with similar characteristics as equity. If the company becomes insolvent or is liquidated, the claims of the investors (Companists) – just like those of all other shareholders of the company – will be satisfied from the assets in the insolvency or the assets in liquidation only after the claims of all other external creditors have been satisfied. Thus, Companists are treated like any other shareholder of the company during insolvency or liquidation proceedings.

The company information published on the Companisto website is provided solely by the companies. The projections made by the companies do not guarantee successful development of the company in the future. Consequently, investments in startups and growth companies are suitable only for those investors who can cope with the risk of a total loss of the capital invested. Investors make their own independent investment decisions and bear all risks themselves.

The investments are provided and issued by the individual companies. Companisto is neither the provider nor the issuer of the investments, but solely the internet service platform.
