It’s been a long time coming, but today I’m finally releasing my Micro-Budget Feature Filmmaking Masterclass!
This nearly 6 hour video course serves as an actionable blueprint to take you from A to Z – idea to finished product. Each phase of the filmmaking process is explored in depth, taking into account creative and business considerations.
There are many courses out there that will teach you about the craft of filmmaking from a technical standpoint. Those classes can be great resources too – especially for those of you who are focused on improving production value. But that’s really just one piece of a much bigger puzzle…
Making a micro-budget feature film is unique to almost any other type of production work. The combination of creative objectives and budgetary constraints calls for out of the box solutions and constant high level problem solving.
The ultimate goal is not simply to craft a film… It’s to utilize that film as a tool and resource to reach your goals, whatever they may be.
My goal was always to make artful films that could still be profitable, and build an audience to support them. This was only possible by keeping my budgets low and configuring a strategy that would maximize value at each stage.
I’ve ingrained this philosophy and tactical approach into the entire course, which spans 14 modules that cover everything from development to audience building.
Module (1) Concept Development
Module (2) Screenwriting
Module (3) Fundraising
