West Virginia native David Selby, a veteran film, stage and television actor, has joined three others to develop an equity based management investment fund to encourage film production in West Virginia, Dream Factory LLC.

West Virginia film producer Jeff Tinnell of The Alleghany Image Factory will serve as CEO of the new company. Film financing veteran John Michaels has joined the management team as a production and financial structure specialist and Lynne Schwabe, director of development for the National Youth Science Foundation, will handle investor relations and market the new company.

Dream Factory LLC will be launched in a series of events throughout the state in an attempt to attract interested investors. Selby said securities in the company would only be sold to "accredited investors," as defined by the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Dream Factory was formed to take advantage of the growing market demand for content worldwide, according to information from the company, with a mission to deploy capital in film and television projects approved by management in the form of equity investments. 

Tinnell's Allegheny Image Factory has produced several film and television projects, with many filmed in West Virginia, and he said the state has an attractive tax incentive.
