The Fyzz Facility
Owned and managed by film producers Wayne Marc Godfrey and Robert Jones, The Fyzz Facility works with filmmakers to offer bespoke financing solutions for independent feature films.
The principals of The Fyzz Facility have long established careers and a continuing involvement in film development, physical production, distribution, acquisition, sales and financing. That means the company brings with it a wide variety of skills and a unique understanding of the complex processes and challenges involved in taking a project from script to screen.
Since its formation in 2010, the company has partnered with leading sales agents, talent agents and producers to bring over $40m of investment into 57 feature film productions. No two projects are the same and all investment opportunities are analysed and assessed in a pragmatic fashion to ensure the best possible financing solution for all parties involved. This meticulous approach is applied regardless of whether funding is for development, bridging pre-production or production finance.
The Fyzz Facility’s investments and productions to date include LONDON FIELDS, based on Martin Amis’ bestseller and starring Amber Heard and Billy Bob Thornton, TIFF 2014’s favourite CAKE starring Jennifer Aniston, Anna Kendrick and Sam Worthington, comedy THE HOOLIGAN FACTORY from Nick Nevern and Jason Maza, and THE PRINCE starring Bruce Willis and John Cusack.
Forthcoming films include the Hollywood Blacklist featured THE SURVIVALIST from hotly tipped writer/director Stephen Fingleton, VICE a sci-fi, futuristic thriller starring Bruce Willis and Martin Scorsese’s historical thriller SILENCE which is set to star Liam Neeson and Andrew Garfield. Most recently, the company has part-funded the Kurt Russell cowboy epic, BONE TOMAHAWK along with BUS 657 starring Robert De Niro. In late 2014, TFF heads into production for psychological thriller, A PATCH OF FOG and is in development on the new thriller THE CHINAMAN adapted from the best-selling novel by established screenwriter, David Marconi.
HERE'S WHAT PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SAYING ABOUT US
Randall Emmett, owner of Emmett Furla Films “I have never worked with a better group. They are there every step of the way on our films“
Chris Hanley, producer of London Fields and owner of Muse Film, "Our experience in working with Fyzz was exceptional. Their expedition in the heat of production to meet the producers needs was beyond efficient. We look forward to continuing a long productive, creative relationship with Fyzz on future projects"
Dallas Sonnier Producer of Bone Tomahawk said “Without the support of The Fyzz Facility, there would be no BONE TOMAHAWK. It’s as simple as that. When we hit an impasse with our financier at the time during pre-production, The Fyzz stepped in and worked tirelessly to replace them in a matter of weeks."
Daniel Baur, of K5 said "It´s been a great ride to work with The Fyzz since we started with them on Paul Walker´s Vehicle 19. They are fast and diligent which is a rare combination in our industry".

Arthur Sarkission, producer “I've known the Fyzz group for just over a year and a half now, and I've had nothing but great experiences with them. Wayne is a straight shooter. If he says he can do something he will, and if he can't he won't. No nonsense, no procrastination, which is exactly what I want from any collaboration. We currently have a few projects together, and I hope that will continue to evolve into a beautiful partnership.”
Northern Ireland Screen said “Northern Ireland Screen was delighted to partner with The Fyzz Facility on a number of projects this past year; Robert and Wayne are a dynamic and formidable team, talented and hard-working producers who understood our specific requirements.

We look forward to further successful collaborations.”
