Raw Power Films is a start up film and digital content production company based in London and Leeds. We are pleased to announce our company recently received Advance Assurance from HMRC for £2,000,000 - which means our partners stand to enjoy the generous tax breaks, cushioned investment and other benefits of the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) and the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS).
Due to stricter rules the popular EIS and SEIS schemes no longer fit the single purpose model adopted by traditional film companies but we have a plan for growth and economic success officially endorsed by the Treasury. Backing Raw Power Films at this time represents a unique and potentially lucrative investment opportunity and we are actively seeking partners. Please contact us for a copy of our investment deck.
Raw Power Films is headed by joint directors Jesse Lawrence and Kate Herron who between them have amassed over 30 years experience in the film and media industries on both sides of the pond including New York and Los Angeles.
A Screen International Star of Tomorrow, Jesse’s feature film debut came as ‘director for hire’ for gross-out-comedy The Knot which starred Tallulah Riley (Westworld) and Mena Suvari (American Horror Story) and was distributed by Universal Pictures.
Jesse has enjoyed a career in television as a producer, cameraman, editor and director and is also the recipient of back to back BFI funding for two award winning shorts including 'Much Ado About a Minor Ting', where he directed Oscar nominee Daniel Kaluuya (Black Panther) in one of his first film roles.
Jesse recently returned from three years in LA working with Renascence Productions. RoadGirl is his latest offering as director and with its mashing of genres - the outlaw who wants out/lesbian love story - in a London urban setting, Jesse picks up where he left off with his acclaimed shorts.
Kate has worked in film and television for over 15 years. She started at the BBC then went to New York and worked at Jim Sheridan's 'Hells Kitchen Productions' and also worked at Discovery Channel, PBS and HBO.
Upon returning to London she started a film events company called Urban Screen, which was funded by Film London and the BFI. Since then Kate has produced award winning shorts 'Melody', 'The Perfect Human' and 'Templates' as well as broadcast television such as ITN series, 'Elizabeth: Our Queen' and 'Meghan and Harry: In Their Own Words,' for Channel 5.
Kate has managed productions in Canada, America and the Middle East and brings her considerable experience to Raw Power Films where she is now working on a slate of films including 'RoadGirl', 'On the Road to Lisbon' and 'Profumo: A Black Scandal'.
