Important Information

The investments referred to in this website are not suitable for all investors. Calculus Capital Limited is not able to give advice to prospective investors about the suitability of the investments. Prospective investors are recommended to seek specialist tax and financial advice before investing in any Calculus EIS Fund, including the UK Creative Content EIS Fund.
An investment into a Calculus EIS Fund may only be made on the basis of reading in full the information set out in the relevant Information Memorandum.
When investing in the Fund, your capital is at risk. The value of shares and income from them may go down as well as up and despite the tax relief you may not recover the amount originally invested. An investment in smaller and unquoted companies carries a higher risk than many other forms of investment. Shares in unquoted companies are not readily marketable. You should not invest in an EIS unless you can afford to lose some or all of your capital.
An EIS investment is only appropriate for investors with a medium to long term investment horizon; the timing and extent of realisation cannot be predicted and may extend beyond five years. It is not possible to allow a partial withdrawal of your investment. You may request a total withdrawal, but since many investments made by the Fund will be in unquoted companies, this may not be possible. Withdrawal within three years would lead to repayment of any tax reliefs received.
The tax benefits available depend upon your individual circumstances and these benefits may change dependent upon future legislation.

I have read and understood this important information.

Maven Screen Media (“Maven”), is developing as a leading media and entertainment development and production company, founded by experienced producers Celine Rattray and Trudie Styler. The founders have established track records for producing award-winning, commercially successful films with worldwide reach and top-tier talent attached. Their productions have launched and received prizes at Cannes, Sundance, and TIFF Film Festivals as well as Oscar®, Golden Globe, BAFTA, British Independent Film, and London Critics Circle Awards.

Celine Rattray has produced over 40 films, including four-time Oscar®-nominated and Golden Globe-winner THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT, BLACK NATIVITY and AMERICAN HONEY after holding key roles in media and entertainment at HBO and McKinsey. Trudie Styler has produced, directed, and acted in numerous television shows and films, producing such landmark titles as LOCK, STOCK AND TWO SMOKING BARRELS, SNATCH, MOON, for which she received a BAFTA nomination, AMERICAN HONEY and THE KINDERGARTEN TEACHER, both with Celine.

INVESTMENT RATIONALE

Celine and Trudie have a proven reputation for developing, producing and managing high-quality, cost-efficient content with a focus on innovative storytelling. Investment from Calculus will support the company’s multi-platform strategy: to maintain a strong film slate and expand into television and digital content (exploiting the explosion in the market for short-form digital content.)

Specifically, Maven is dedicated to increasing representation of female content creators and female-centred stories. Maven recognises that women are under represented both in front of and behind the camera: only 30% of top grossing films from 2014 to 2017 starred a woman, but female-led films outperformed at the box office (CAA), and of the top-grossing films from 2007 to 2018, only 4% were directed by a woman (USC). Their development slate across film, TV and digital content demonstrates their commitment to having strong female leads, with unique narratives that address social issues and inspire change.
