Our Vison

Bold Crayon is a premiere entertainment company servicing both coasts founded by astute financiers and seasoned creatives.

Bold Crayon partners with top filmmakers to develop, package, finance, and produce high-quality feature films with broad-market appeal. 

Relationships with major studios, leading talent agencies, and proven foreign sales companies, empowers Bold Crayon to offer A-list creatives (and convincing up-and-comers) the opportunity to partner with a financier/producer that values passion and imagination -- and understands profitability.

Bold Crayon specializes in mid-budgeted productions where more than 100% of the budget can be collateralized by a film’s IP, unsold licensing sales projections, pre-sold licensing contracts, incentive agreements, tax rebates, and grants.  Bold Crayon is adept at utilizing these assets to limit risk and guarantee greater profitability.

Few companies meet Bold Crayon's level of creative ability & financial sophistication.

Peg Dahl (Zoey Deutch) has never run with the Buffalo pack. As a young girl obsessed with making enough cash to get out of her blue collar existence, she’s betting on her sharp mind and even sharper mouth to get her into an Ivy League university. But when an acceptance letter to the school of her dreams arrives, she quickly realizes the impossibility of paying tuition. One scalping scheme, stint in prison, and chance phone conversation with a debt collector changes everything. 

Tribeca alum Tanya Wexler returns with a raucous comedy starring Judy Greer, Jai Courtney, Jermaine Fowler and Deutch (in a go-for-broke performance) that tracks one woman finding her calling in an ethically debatable industry. As much of an ode to the city of Buffalo, New York as it is to the millions of Americans struggling with a seemingly dead-end economic  existence, BUFFALOED wrings hearty laughs out of a particularly timely & honest reality.
