      BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!
      REGISTRATION FOR THE WINTER 2012 SEMINAR IS NOW OPEN, PLEASE REGISTER
      BELOW!
      Film Grants and Proposal Writing 101 with special section on Social
      Media & Crowdfunding

      SPECIAL BONUS: The filmmakers resources CD (containing filmmakers
      funding sources lists/contacts domestic and international, sample
      proposals, industry contracts and much more)!

      (EARLY REGISTRATION SUGGESTED [VERY LIMITED CAPACITY DUE TO NEW ONLINE
      COMPONENT])
      Overwhelmed by an upcoming grant/media fund deadline? Don't know how to
      begin to gather your materials? Or do you just want to start making
      your own projects and need to write a funding proposal? If so, this
      workshop is for you. This workshop will introduce you to the
      preparation, organization and submission of a successful grant
      proposal/package to foundations, donors/prospects and film funds.

      Most proposals/packages can increase their possibilities of funding if
      done properly. Many mistakes are oversights that could be avoided. Our
      facilitator will lead you through the basic steps and general overview
      needed to complete a successful grant-writing campaign and/or a film or
      television project proposal sharing her years of experience in the
      field. Participants are encouraged to engage in the learning process by
      bringing their upcoming proposals to follow along, ask questions and
      seek limited personalized assistance after the workshop.

      You will also get an overall overview of the industry and what you will
      need to know when preparing to present your projects to a funder.

      What you will get: a general overview of how to prepare your
      grants/proposals and the job of fundraising/presenting your film to
      prospects as well as a comprehensive list of SOURCES of funding and
      their contact information to save you time and money.

      This is an intensive seminar so make sure you are rested and free from
      distractions as there will be a lot of information covered and virtually
      no breaks.

      Open to all.
