5 Secrets & Specific Tips

   to Lock an Investor

We are very often asked: “How do you get your films funded?!” I need an hour to really answer this question. Plus, after the hour I know you’re going to have a question or two.  

 

There are two types of filmmakers, those who can’t find funding and those who can. Everybody wants to be the later type of filmmaker. There are many books on how to find funding and there are a lot of others who tell you their secrets. I’ve read all the books and I still to this day pay to hear out anybody else preaching on this topic. I can see why you, yes you reading this now still need guidance. At least hearing out everybody else out wasn’t enough for me. 

 

In addition to giving you 5 major options that have worked time and time again for me, I will also give you an overview of the industry and a checklist of items you must have in place before you are ready to look in a billionaires eyes and convince them that your dreams are worth writing a check for. 

Price for Admission: $28 per person.

COMMON MISTAKES TO AVOID IN PRODUCING  

Whether you are gearing up to make your first feature film or you are a prolific producer, your mind will be expanded and you will hear many fascinating and juicy true stories about how difficult it is to make a movie… and continue to make movies.

 

From the script (writing, optioning, purchasing), to casting (non-union, SAG, and star names), budgeting and scheduling, finding investors, hiring crew, making the paperwork easy, production, post-production, film festivals, sales agents, and distribution — this seminar will overview all aspects of producing.

Price for Admission: $21 per person.

150-minutes (2.5 hours long)

How to make a Star Studded 

Feature Film for under $100,000 

There is no better way to learn than firsthand. This is a very unique and special class where I will break down before your eyes the 5-figure budgets, dollar for dollar, of two feature films that I released in 2020 called “IMMORTAL” and “YES” (both available on VOD and Amazon Prime).  

 

You will learn where to spend money and where not to spend money and what goes into each and every one of my decisions to be, or not to be frugal. I don’t know if I will ever teach this class again because of how personal it is, but for those who are serious enough to know how I did, I invite you into my brain this one time. 

Price for Admission: $44 per person 

180-minutes (3 hours long)

Developing A Killer Concept

Finding a bankable idea that will resonate with a wide range of people is essential to get a script produced. The reason why most independent feature film scripts don’t see the light of day has everything to do with the concept. A seasoned writer doesn’t need to sell a script, sometimes all they need to pitch is the concept to get a green light. Learn how.  

 

Once you have your amazing concept, the screenplay for every successful feature film, no matter how abstract it may be, contains 15 crucial beats within the story. Learning the significance of each beat in fine detail and identifying each beat before writing your screenplay will inevitably make it easy to write the script, or sell the fleshed out concept. 

 

Whether you are starting your first screenplay or you are a seasoned writer, you will leave this seminar with more confidence, knowledge, and ability to know what elements go into a bankable 2-5 page outline as well as a 7-10 page treatment which easily translates into a feature length screenplay.
