April 13 @ 7pm: Using Custom Fonts Legally to Create Better Movie Posters, Book Covers, Pitches, etc.
If you think you are pretty good at design, and know where to find great stock images (Pond5.com, Canva.com, etc) you may be shocked at just how awful your posters and book covers look. No matter what you do, or how hard you work, they look like they were made by an amateur. Often the problem is that you aren’t using professional fonts. If you shop for fonts you’ll find they range from “free” to hundreds of dollars. The problem with the free fonts is that they aren’t really free when you are using them commercially, which is to say for business purposes. That can turn into a big financial problem. In this workshop you’ll learn where to buy, how to buy, and how to use professional fonts in your work. You’ll learn why fonts are able to complete change human perception of an image, communicating when something is supposed to be horrifying, suspenseful, old fashioned, ancient, alien, or twenty minutes into the future. You’ll also learn how to mix fonts, so you don’t jar people’s eyes and minds by mixing the wrong kind or number of font types.

April 20 @ 7PM How to Buy and Use Special FX in Videos, Films, and Animations
In this workshop, you learn several fast and cost-effective ways to add special FX to your film posters, book covers, ads, and films. Just as there are libraries of stock images, there are libraries of special effects, and learning where to find them, and how to use them, can have a big impact in the kind and quality of projects you can do. You can spend a lot of money hiring others to create these FX for you, but learning how to create them yourself may well be a better investment.
April 27 @ 7PM Attorney Asa Pitt: Creative Rights Agreements and the Impact of Divorce
In this workshop we’ll be addressing the importance of ownership of your screenplays, films, videos, designs and other intellectual property and how those rights can be impacted by a divorce. This is a critical workshop for anyone considering working creatively with a partner. This workshop is especially critical if you are married.

May 4 @ 7PM Tik Tok Promotion
In this workshop you learn how to promote yourself, your books, your films, and your other projects on Tik Tok. You’ll master skills that make creating great videos easier, including how to create amazing ones that don’t force you to be on screen. You’ll also learn how to run ads, and how to acquire followers. Tik Tok is easier to use than Facebook or Twitter as a promotional tool, and many folks like it much better both as creator and viewer.
