ONE-ON-ONE COACHING & CONSULTING

In one-on-one sessions we can cover any combination of topics. The work and information is entirely directed towards your specific questions, needs, and situation. Tell me what help, advice, guidance, and/or information you need and we'll make it happen. Below are some of the things on which I most frequently work with people.

PROJECT SPECIFIC CONSULTING or HOW TO MAKE YOUR MOVIE

I can help you think and work through a short or feature-length film project at any stage from the seed of the idea to marketing and distributing it.

  • Development – How to choose the right project and then get it out of the gate, putting together the best creative team, deciding on a budget level

  • Budget Levels – What does it mean to make a micro-budget film v. a more-than-micro-budget film v. an upward-of-$1M-film? What are the pros and cons to each and what will each mean for your eventual film? Which is right for your project?

  • Financing - What are the different types of financing structures and possibilities? How does my budget level affect what type of financing I should go after? How do you go about raising each one? What materials do you need for each? (I can also review your existing materials) Everything you need to know about film finance before speaking with a potential investor.

  • Pre-Production, Production and Post-Production - Advice on everything you need to know A-Z about getting your project through production and post-production, including resource, crew, and actor recommendations

  • Festivals, Marketing, and Distribution - Yep, that is a whole big conversation and one that can feel pretty overwhelming after the marathon of getting your project to this point. Don't worry - it's not rocket science. It just takes a little strategy, planning, and, yes, more work. I can help you navigate all of that.

CROWD-FUNDING CONSULTING

I have successfully run 5 separate crowd-funding campaigns for my own projects (ranging from $700 - $35,000) and have consulted on dozens more for other people. What I have learned is that it is not as mystical as it may seem. There are extremely clear strategies, psychologies, and plans that work and classic rookie mistakes to avoid. Let me demystify it for you and help you develop your budget goal, plan, and materials.

CAREER, ETC

Want to just talk big picture career stuff? How do you get from where you are to the work that you want to be doing? Want to talk about something else completely that you think I might know something about? I'm game.

Frequently one session doesn't cover all of the information you might want and/or you'll find that you have different questions over the life of a project as it reaches new and different phases. We can cluster these 4 sessions together to get you going strong out of the gate, or we can stretch them out over time so that you only have to focus on the information that you need for the steps immediately in front of you.
