LIVE WORKSHOPS COMING UP
Dec 14 @ 7PM Actual Places to Pitch and Sell Your Screenplay
Lots of fuss is made about how to pitch a screenplay. It’s talked about all the time. This workshop tells you where to find legitimate producers you can pitch your projects to. Producers looking for content actively look for 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 you and your project stand out.
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 going to automatically remember you when they start work on their next project. You have to make a connection. You have to keep it alive. That’s what a good mailing list does. And you can set up one or more mailing lists to quietly, passively, gently and inexpensively collect opportunities for you, if you follow the steps in this workshop.
Jan 4 @ 7PM Sites That Connect You to Stars, Celebrities, and Notables
Connecting to the creative and business leaders that define the entertainment industry has become both easier and harder over the years. If you have a mutually beneficial “good reason” to get in contact with someone famous, can prove you aren’t a loon, and can be trusted, there are several successful methods of outreach that usually work. In this workshop you’ll learn about sites and strategies that can help you connect with the industry pros, and why these systems have developed over the years to protect both you and the talent you’re trying to reach.
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.
If you have questions, please email email@example.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
