CLASSES

At the moment, the classes I am offering are online and self-directed - a combination of pre-recorded videos and workbooks. The advantage to this format is that I can offer the classes at a more affordable price and you can take them whenever you want, fully at your own convenience and pace. Once you purchase the class, the videos and workbook are yours forever, so you can go back and re-visit them as often as needed. ​

If you are looking for live feedback, advice, or supplemental teaching, I would recommend pairing the courses with some one-on-one coaching (scroll down). 

It is likely that I will offer live group classes again in the future, so check back here for those!

NOTE: Once you purchase a course, I will send you an email with the course files and information.

 

INDIE FILM DEVELOPMENT INTENSIVE

This class is the one that I wish had existed before I made my first film - one in which the entire process of filmmaking (development through marketing and distribution) is demystified and broken down into understandable and actionable steps. 

In this class you will:

  • Craft a compelling logline and synopsis for your film

  • Create your business plan and investor packet, designed to clearly communicate with potential financiers and partners

  • Develop a lookbook that captures the story, imagery, and creative vision for your project

  • Learn how to build the right "Yellow Brick Road" team and where to find them

  • Design a strategy to cast your film in a way that is supportive of your goals

  • Develop a deep understanding of film finance and create a plan to raise financing for your project

  • Learn the ins and outs of the film festival and distribution landscape while crafting an initial plan for your project - one you can start implementing before production

  • Hone an "elevator pitch" for your project and develop an understanding of how to pitch in a long-form setting with investors

$297

for 12 Modules + Workbook + Sample Investor Materials and Business Plan

SCREENWRITING I INTENSIVE

Ernest Hemingway famously said, "The first draft of anything is shit." 

 

That is true. It is also true that the first draft is what you need to get on the page before you can begin the process of turning your screenplay from a piece of creative inspiration into the masterpiece that you know, someday, it can be.

This course gets you off the starting block and into your creative process, as I lead you through creating a writing process and, with videos and workbooks, lead you through writing a first draft of your screenplay in 8 weeks.

$97

for 8 weeks worth of videos, coursework, and worksheets to bring you to a first full draft of your screenplay
