SKY’S THE LIMIT AT SAM HOUSTON SW FILM INVESTMENT FUND

HOUSTON, TX (December 2020) – Best known throughout the entertainment industry for closing high-dollar, cross-border deals, Sky Moore of Los Angeles-based law firm Greenberg Glusker, LLP is now representing the Sam Houston Southwest Film Investment Fund, LLC in all legal matters pertaining to the ever-expanding Houston-based company’s motion picture production and investment initiatives.

Specializing in Entertainment Law, Corporate, Finance & Securities, and Film Financing, Sky is the author of The Biz, a popular book on the film industry, and the treatise, Taxation of the Entertainment Industry. He is also a mainstay on Hollywood Reporter’s “Power Lawyers” list of the top 100 entertainment lawyers in the country and is consistently listed as one of the top entertainment lawyers by Variety, having recently been recognized in the publication’s annual “Dealmakers Impact Report.”

“To my mind, there’s no one more knowledgeable in Entertainment Law than Sky Moore, particularly regarding film investing,” says Steve Hill, Sam Houston’s Executive Director and CEO. “When it comes to complex negotiations with major studios, production and financing partners or A-list talent, I want Sky leading the charge.”

“Complex and time sensitive deals are what I do best,” says Sky, adding, “Integrating all the different pieces of financing can be challenging, and instruments are always evolving. I’m a deal maker, not a deal breaker.”

With over 100 attorneys, Greenberg Glusker has remained the largest single-office, full-service law firm in California for over 60 years, with a reach that spans the entire United States and the globe.

Sam Houston Southwest Film Investment Fund is chartered to promote filmmaking in the Southwest region of the United States, while fostering creative talent and bringing quality entertainment to a global audience. Through strategic alliances with leading production companies and distributors, Sam Houston develops content and provides financing for every phase of content creation, from development through production and distribution.

Over the past decade, in addition to developing film slates specially curated to suit its members’ varied interests, Sam Houston has provided tens of millions of dollars in prints and advertising (“P&A”) and backstop P&A financing for some of today’s most successful films, with production budgets of up to $70 million dollars.
