Jan 11 @ 7PM PST Shopping for Grants to Support Your Work
In this workshop you learn how to access to exhaustive grant databases that list tens of thousands of grants that support individual creatives, non-profits, etc. If you are looking for support for your creative projects, ongoing research, training, etc. We’ll also address the fundamentals of applying for grants and where you can find people to assist you if you find the process difficult.
Jan 18 @ 7PM PST: Paralyzed: What to do When You Don’t Know What to Do
Being a working creative has always required a lot from writers, screenwriters, producers, directors, cinematographers, designers, etc. Even Michelangelo spent a lot of time looking for work and wondering how to pay the bills. Shakespeare didn’t die richer than Midas. Paralysis seizes all of us from time to time, and for some creatives it turns into a roadblock they never get over or around. Some of the best writers on earth don’t write. Some of the most talented directors give themselves careers that go no where. This workshop gives you skills, tools, techniques, and strategies that keep you sanely, profitably, securely, and contentedly moving forward. They are culled from 30+ years of supporting, training, and mentoring creative minds, and running a variety of creative enterprises. If you get stuck, or know other creatives that do, this is the workshop for you.
Jan 25 @ 7PM PST: Amazon Kindle Select: Selling Thousands of Pages a Day Profitably
In this workshop we’ll review Kindle Select and how to use it to sell your books profitably. This program is being used by independent writers worldwide to earn many thousands of dollars a month. In this workshop we’ll discuss how to get your books into the free program, and how to use its very unique features to maximize the sale of your work by page. We’ll discuss how Kindle Select works with Amazon Unlimited, how you get paid, and whether or not it’s worth agreeing to exclusivity terms for your ebooks. You will learn about promotional options, and how to exit the program on a book by book basis if you decide you want to “go wide” with some or all of your work. If you are a writer writing books, a screenwriter who can turn scripts into books, or a producer who wants to earn more from your movies before and after production, this is an important workshop to attend.
FEB 2 @ 7PM Strategies for Producing Profitably in 2022
Producing film, television, and other media has always involved risk and expense. Successful producers command the lion's share of the long-term profit for their projects because they take on those expenses, navigate those risks, and generate those profits. As a producer creating content this year, it pays to consider ways to reduce risk, reduce expenses, and maximize the probability of profit. In this workshop, we’ll review some strategies, sites, tools, and resources indie producers can use to move their projects forward this year. Note, we have recorded workshops that cover in-depth development, funding, production, distribution, and marketing of media free to VIP/PRO members at https://nancyfultonmeetups.uscreen.io/categories/film-and-tv
