Description

Are you looking for funding for your next film project?

When I first started out as film producer I was completely lost as to where I can find funding for short films and micro budget features. I'd apply for every grant, investor scheme and screenplay competition I could find and I would never hear back so I decided to take matters into my own hands and green light my own project through crowdfunding.

But it's not that easy... if you've ever tried crowdfunding you know. Where do I find hundreds of backers and thousands of pounds from? Who would give money to my campaign except for maybe immediate friends and family? What steps do I need to take to make the campaign A SUCCESS?

I want to show you exactly how I funded multiple film projects through crowdfunding, one of which was a short film that raised over £30,000.

In this intensive course I will walk you through the essential steps that you will need to take to have a successful campaign. This is suitable for anyone who is considering launching a campaign, in the middle of a campaign that's not going as planned, or simply for people who want to learn more about the process.
