Show Me The Money: How To Find The Money To Fund Your Film

Show Me The Money: How To Find The Money To Fund Your Film

By Joel G. Block (Mentor/Columnist)

Filmmakers have two dramatic problems and neither of them are artistic. First, filmmakers have to get the money to make their film. Second, they have to make enough money so that they can pay the original money back. Both of these issues, if left unattended and unplanned for, will take you down the bunny hole faster than you can imagine.

Growth-Logic is a long time advisor and investor to filmmakers and entrepreneurs " helping them to succeed with their projects. We see the twinkle in the eyes of our clients when they succeed. We also see the tears around us when the "hopeful hundreds" fail.

Due to enormous demand from filmmakers, we have agreed to sponsor a program to help filmmakers get ready to find the money to make their films. The program will begin in the Fall.

We have developed a unique formula for how this program will be delivered and there will be several ways that filmmakers can get involved. At a minimum, filmmakers will be invited to participate via a live Webinar where they will be a "fly on the wall" listening in on a candid interviews with at least six top Hollywood moviemaking personalities. These Hollywood experts are skilled in a variety of different insider techniques for raising money and making the money to pay it back.  If you choose to be a participant in this program, you will be able to ask questions and get the answers you are seeking.

My co-sponsor for this program is Gary Goldstein. Gary was the producer of Pretty Woman (starring Julia Roberts & Richard Gere) and the executive producer of the Under Siege series (starring Steven Seagal), to name just two of his many accomplishments. He has literally driven over a billion dollars to the box office! There aren`t many people, including people in Hollywood, who can claim that.

Gary will be our first "hot seat" panelist and participants in the program will be able to ask him questions during our first live Webinar. He and I will also procure other top Hollywood talent " insiders and experts on the business and money side " so that you can learn all that you need to know to raise money and make money in the independent film business.

We will be looking for the best packages because we want to personally get them funded.

We aren`t taking sign-ups just yet, but if you would like to be one of the first people to know when we announce this limited program, please submit your name and email address in the form on the upper right side of this blog.

Keep watching this blog because we will make some extremely exciting announcements over the next few weeks.

We are looking forward to helping you to "find the money to fund your dream."
