“Julia and Jason were notable! I appreciated Julia’s and Jason’s clear, down-to-earth approach to film financing and producing. Julia’s book, Success in Film, the courses in Film Financing, and Producing were the ‘best’ investments I’ve made in gaining the clarity and knowledge of building a solid foundation for my company and film projects.”
— Audra Kelly, Producer
