"Blew me away"

by Cat Russell / Documentary Producer (Colorado, USA)

"You blew me away with the concept that fundraising is not asking people for money, you are getting them to sign on to something they want to be a part of. Wow! If I only new that the last time I fundraised on Kickstarter!"

"Most helpful tool"

by Amber Talarico (Los Angeles, California)

"I am currently going through everything. And oh my Lanta, this course is the most helpful tool I have EVER come by! I am SO happy I came across it. Thank you for putting all the time and effort in creating this. You are helping hundreds if not thousands of people. I will be sure to promote this to all my other film friends!"

"Valuable Resources"

by Tess Howie (N. Dakota, USA)

"So many valuable resources. I appreciated the encouraging tone of the course." (Producer, Feek's Vision Documentary)

"Very helpful"

by Duncan Sill/Producer-Director, Invictuscope

"As a filmmaker, producer juggling so many balls to develop and facilitate the actualization of projects, having material such as this offers a very helpful way to organize and assess your own work and progress. Even with significant industry and or development background, I gained valuable resources by taking this course."

This course demystifies the fundraising process and provides a step by step guide on finding real-world funding opportunities for YOUR film

"Do I Really Need This Course?"

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 The Possibilities

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.

"Many, many take-aways"

by David Williams / Documentary Producer (USA)

"As a former nonprofit executive director many of the points covered within the course were familiar to me. However, filtered through the lens of raising funds for a documentary (my first!) the ground covered was a comforting reminder of how to do this sort of thing. There were many, many take-aways."

"Dead on"

by Murv Seymour/Documentary Director (Killer B3)

"I wish I had discovered this course before I produced my first flick. Your information on who donates and why is dead on. The goal for my next film is $100,000. When I'm done with your lessons, hopefully I will have more tools at my finger tips to get there."
