I went from being in debt, to making a 6-figure profit in one year.

I am an award-winning filmmaker who has been making films for over 30 years. Most of my films were supported by grants, but my most recent documentary was turned down by every traditional funding source! It was funded exclusively from individuals, via crowdfunding. These, once strangers, became my avid supporters.  

My film has toured the world. I created a tribe of dedicated followers who have been key to the success of my film’s distribution. I used strategic and innovative marketing to build, reach and engage my tribe, who became active promoters of my film. I continue to learn from the top digital marketers in the business world, and now want to share my strategies with YOU!

I admit it. I am obsessed with teaching fellow artists how to think and behave like marketers. My dream is to create a way for filmmakers to be sustainable, make a steady angle of profit, and continue to make films!

 

When should you start marketing your film?

Before you begin production! One of the biggest mistakes filmmakers make is trying to market their films once they are done! It is never too early to build your following.
