Phil Hunt’s London-based film financing company, Head Gear Films, kicked off 15 years ago and accelerated the deal in recent years. The company provided more than five pounds in 2012 for 55 films last year. Supported films include Michael Fassbender’s “Black Mass”, “Trespass Against Us”, John Michael McDonagh’s “War for All” starring Johnny Depp, Alexander’s role. Skarsgard and Michael Pena. Hunt tells Variety that he balances punk rock skin with careful consideration of the risks that arise from independent film business.
Running the presidency of Bankside Films, a 10-year-old sales company, Hunt began in the early 1990s as a photographer in the advertising industry.
