Crowdfunding to Build Independence

Learn the tools for creative independence by studying the techniques of successful crowdfunding campaigns: how to identify your audiences, bring them on board as followers and eventual funders, build meaningful partnerships to scale your reach, and create the most enticing possible pitch to audiences. Then, you'll get the down low on learning how to read between the lines of the data you gather while crowdfunding to increase the value of your IP and retain creative control.

The Distribution Down Low

We’re shattering the mystique around film distribution. Join us as we break down the current landscape of distribution for independent film and TV, including the economics of different avenues to take, the right questions to ask potential partners, and what needs to be done from pre-production through post-production to set yourself up for successful distribution.
