Hello filmmakers! 


I’d love to connect you to resources that will help you make your work! Here are some to get you started. Remember, for those of you from historically underrepresented demographics behind the camera, it is your civic duty to find a way to make your stories by any means necessary and get them to audiences who desperately need to see and hear them. Don’t wait. Do it. 


Rage on,


Virtual Classes 


I offer online classes on covering screenwriting, film finance, indie film development, film festivals, and distribution. My goal is to offer practical, accessible, de-mystified information that will allow you to write, finance, make, and distribute your work entirely without "the system" (or at least to be educated and empowered if and when you do choose to participate in it).

I offer two-hours workshops, as well as multi-week intensives, on a pay-what-you-can basis wherever possible.
