Sorainen, working with Lee & Thompson, has advised Head Gear Films on financing the Last Sentinel movie in Estonia and on related IP and state aid issues.
"The drama/sci-fi/thriller tells the story of a squad of soldiers stranded on an abandoned military base on a near-future Earth, waiting for relief or the enemy, whichever comes first. Last Sentinel is written by Malachi Smyth and directed by Tanel Toom," Sorainen announced. "After premiering in Estonian cinemas on March 17, the sci-fi thriller quickly became the most successful movie of the weekend, collecting over 5,000 visits in cinemas on its opening days."
Head Gear Films provides production services and debt finance to media projects, with a portfolio of over 300 films, TV shows, and video games.
The Sorainen team was led by Counsel Jane Eespold and included Partner Paul Kunnap, Senior Associate Mirell Prosa, Associate Mirjam Metsik, and Assistant Lawyer Karl Oskar Pungas.
Sorainen did not respond to our inquiry on the matter.
