Indie Film Boot Camp – Deluxe 6-DVD Set

Filmmakers, What is Nobody Telling You?

It’s a hard fact that some of the most valuable filmmaking knowledge is not really covered in most filmmaking classes and seminars. The insider tips, tactics and techniques that we deliver in this 6-DVD series are all things that you will eventually learn if you stay in the industry and keep making films and video.

But the real question is – How will you learn them?…Through the usual expensive trial and error, morale-busting mistakes and years of hard knocks in the trenches? OR By learning vicariously from the shared experience of other independent filmmakers like you that have already been there and done that?

Nobody Told Us Either

Between the three instructors presenting these seminar, we’ve taken our indie lumps several times over. When we started out nobody told us some of the most crucial things we needed to master to become better filmmakers and consistently create professional-quality videos. From the intricacies of wooing an investor to the perils of shooting without permits…we learned it all the hard way.

With the Indie Film Bootcamp DVD Series, you can learn it all the EASY way – from our mistakes and hard-won experience. And not just our mistakes, but also our many indie successes. Between us, we’ve taken multiple top prizes at major film festivals, produced music videos and shows on MTV, been screened on Showtime and Starz, wooed and directed A-list talent, and screened films at Sundance, Slamdance, Tribeca and beyond. However, the reality is that if we knew just half of what we’re share in Indie Film Bootcamp, we could have done it all faster, cheaper and with even better results.

If you’re just beginning your filmmaking journey or stalled out somewhere in the middle, we pose the crucial question:

What is nobody telling you that’s holding back your filmmaking progress?

Raising Funds and Pitching…Effectively

What good is a great idea if it never gets off the page? Raising money is the hardest part of filmmaking at every level, nevertheless, we all leave resources untapped due to poor self-promotion, ineffective proposals, and failing to speak the language of the investor, executive, or any other type of person sitting across the table. Being able to secure financing means being able to sell your idea. This seminar will help you streamline your efforts as you embark on the beautiful journey of going from script to screen.
