Completion bonds: “The spine of the film financing deal”

–Fred Milstein

Customization. That’s what makes Media Guarantors different.

We were created to leverage the lengthy experience of our two founders, along with our knowledge that customers are looking for personal and tailored solutions.  So, here’s what you can expect:

  • Proactive, Not Reactive.  When you work with us, you won’t need to continuously reach out to us to see how the production is progressing.  It’s our job to keep you informed and you can count on us to regularly update you.
  • Trusted Advisor. You know us from our experience in the business.  The best advice always is grounded in truth.
  • Partner & Resource. We are an integral member of your team, and we’re here to help from start to finish.
  • Value, Not Volume. We’re in this to do the best possible work, not to do the most.
