We've spent twelve years producing and fundraising my own films and another four years advising filmmakers on theirs. We've seen what works and what doesn't.
Our approach has helped filmmakers raise over $2,000,000 from companies, foundations, and non-profits outside the normal, over-saturated channels for film funding.
Learn the essential strategies of:
Adapting your existing content for fundraising
Prioritizing the most effective length cuts
Identifying and pitching potential funders
