If you understand fundraising and know where to find money for your documentary, this fundraising course is not for you.
However, if you are baffled by the fundraising process and struggle to find funding for your film, the Documentary Fundraising Course is an eye-opening resource.
Do you want to get past the hurdle of raising money so that you can get on with making your film?
Imagine putting together a documentary pitch that helps you bring in tens of thousands of dollars (or MORE). Isn't it worth at least the same amount you'd pay a production assistant for one day's work if it helps you raise an extra $5,000, $75,000 or $1-million? Your small investment has easily paid for itself!
Imagine what would happen if you had all the money you needed to make your documentary.
You could hire exactly who you needed to make your film including a writer, production crew, editor, composer and graphics specialist.
You could quit your 9-5 job and focus full time on making your film.
You could get the best quality video camera and all the filmmaking gear needed to bring your artistic vision to life.
The important message of your film can finally get out to the world, potentially changing or saving lives or impacting society.
