Research Services

In addition to providing information for free on The Numbers, Nash Information Services, LLC provides research services to hundreds of industry professionals, investors and entertainment companies each year. Since 1997, we have been constantly developing our Movie Industry Model, a sophisticated tool for analyzing the past and future performance of movies, including ancillary revenue through DVD and Blu-ray sales and rentals, TV sales, and foreign revenues.

Using our model, we can provide revenue estimates for past movies, predictions of opening weekends and total grosses for current and future releases, and many other financial projections that can be critical in creating a business plan for an independent movie, or planning an investment. Our research services are used by independent producers, investment banks and analysts, technology companies, retailers, web sites and the major studios.

One of our most popular services is our Movie Sales Projection. The projection is based on research from our database for movies that are similar to a given project based either on a list provided by our client, or by doing a search based on multiple criteria, including budget, genre and production method.

Based on this information, we provide a projection for the profit or loss that will be made by the movie, based on our distribution model for studio distribution, or by working with our client to identify an alternative distribution strategy appropriate for the particular project.

The Movie Sales Projection breaks down revenue into US and international theatrical and home market income, TV rights sales and other ancillary revenue.

The Numbers was officially launched on October 17th, 1997 as a free resource for industry professionals, the investment community, and movie fans to track business information on movies. Since its humble early beginnings, with just 300 tracked movies, the site has grown to become the largest freely available database of movie industry information on the web. Over 20,000 movies and nearly 100,000 people are now tracked and we continue our commitment to making this data available to the widest possible audience.

The site has been run since its inception by Bruce Nash, with the help of a dedicated team of researchers and writers, bringing daily updates on the movie industry from its base in Los Angeles, CA.
