An LLC (limited liability company) is separate from your corporation. A corporation is more like your umbrella company that depicts your brand. You don’t raise funds under your corporation. I have a company called Snowfall Film, Inc., under which I produce my art house and family films. When Kate and I decided in the fall of 2004 to produce some horror films, we wanted to keep them separate from Snowfall Films and to instead create a company with its own brand, so we launched WindChill Films, Inc.
