What is EIS?

Indirect assistance is provided by the UK government to film, among many other sectors, in the form of the ENTERPRISE INVESTMENT SCHEME (“EIS”) and the more recently established SEED ENTERPRISE INVESTMENT SCHEME (“SEIS”). These are tax incentives provided to UK tax payers to encourage them to invest in the production, and subsequent exploitation of a film. See ENTERPRISE INVESTMENT SCHEMES for more details.

Featured Current Project

Carnaby International are looking for investment in a number of exciting film projects, including Panzer 88.

Panzer 88

Panzer 88

From the producers of Academy Award winning STAR WARS, ALIEN and BLADE RUNNER, the film is due to go into production in the UK and Canada in October 2014.

The producers are Gary Kurtz, Oscar-winning producer of STAR WARS, STAR WARS: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK and AMERICAN GRAFFITI, and Ivor Powell (ALIEN, BLADE RUNNER, THE DUELLISTS). PANZER 88 is written and directed by cinematographer Peter Briggs, the co-writer of HELLBOY.

1944. The Eastern front of Russia. An invincible German King Tiger tank retreats across the icy tundra. Battle-weary, hungry and cold, its crack, five-man crew are unbroken. But a curious twist of fate means they reluctantly pick up a stranded SS officer. Unaware of his part in the massacre of the inhabitants of a local village, it proves a fatal decision as they become the prey of a vengeful and unstoppable mythical entity that hungers for their destruction. Behind the lens is the 5 time Oscar winning special effects company Weta Workshop (AVATAR, THE HOBBIT, LORD OF THE RINGS, DISTRICT 9, KING KONG), along with VFX company Prime Focus (WORLD WAR Z, TREE OF LIFE, X-MEN FIRST CLASS, TRON LEGACY, AVATAR).
