We have 4 Workshops coming up in December. You can sign up for all of them at https://nancyfulton.gumroad.com/l/dUzqTK/VID0nly. If you are a VIP/PRO member, you'll automatically be invited to attend all of them.
Recently I've been making the workshops available individually for $15 to $20 each, but it really makes so little sense I want to stop those individual sales. For $20 you sign up as a VIP/PRO, get 4 events, attend the ones you want, and review any or all of the 100+ recorded workshops and workbooks at https://nancyfultonmeetups.uscreen.io/catalog.
Cancel your membership at any time by clicking the Cancel Subscription button at the bottom of any VIP/PRO email, or just by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You can place your order and send me a request to cancel right away if you like, ensuring you're only charged $20 and still have access to all 4 events. I don't care how many times you sign up and cancel. If you want the lowest price for workshops, spend the $72, and get 3 to 4 workshops a month for just $6/month.
Anyway, let's give this simplification and cost reduction a try.
Dec 2 @ 7PM PST Sizzle Reel Secrets and Expensive Mistakes
Sometimes making a sizzle reel for your project helps it race forward into full funding and production. Sometimes a sizzle reel is a colossal waste of time and a very expensive mistake. This workshop reviews how you can swiftly produce sizzle reels when they make sense, and when a short film, a $10K feature, a documentary, or an actor reading for the right audience is a much better investment of your time. You'll also find out how to see some good examples of sizzle reels you can use as models for your own.
Dec 7 @ 7PM PST Read a Script Like a Producer
Writing a script producers want to buy is much easier when you know how producers read screenplays. Find out how producers calculate costs, assess your ability to tell a story, approximate the financial value of your story, all while reading the first few pages of your screenplay. Find out how they vet you along with your project, and learn how to make yourself and your project significantly more attractive to them without spending a lot of time.
Dec 14 @ 7PM PST Actual Places to Pitch and Sell Your Screenplay
Lots of fuss is made about how to pitch your screenplay. It’s talked about all the time. This workshop tells you how to find legitimate producers to whom you can pitch your projects. Producers looking for content do look on specific websites to find content that meets their needs. They do accept queries via specific producer-friendly portals as well. Learn where producers look for projects when they want to buy, and learn how to make your project stand out from the crowd.
Dec 16 @ 7PM Building a High-Value Mailing List Passively
Whether you are selling movies, books, or skills, the heart of your marketing probably has to be a mailing list. Producers who stumble across a short you’ve written can’t be expected to remember you a year later when they have a feature they want to produce. Someone who loves your work as a designer, composer, cinematographer, or director isn’t naturally going to remember you when they start work on their next project. You have to make connections and you have to keep them alive. That’s what a mailing list does. And you can set up one or more mailing lists to quietly, passively, gently and inexpensively collect and maintain high-value opportunities for you, if you follow the steps in this workshop.
Thanks for taking the time required to read this note. I hope you have a great Thanksgiving and I look forward to seeing you online next week.
