TESTIMONIALS:

 

“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 project.”
     — Audra Kelly, Producer

 

“Thanks to doing this course, I got my film made and am now having a very successful festival run!  Julia is amazing: she has a wealth of development and production experience across the world, and she explains everything very clearly.  If you take this class, it will empower you with the skills and knowledge needed to make your film. Highly recommend!”

     — Sean Fredericks, Director/Producer/Writer

 

“I learned so much from the Film Financing Class!  Things that none of my friends are learning after years in film school.  One can learn how to write a script and film a scene, but if one wants to have a film actually financed how do you accomplish that?  I learned the answers from this class and I highly recommend that any indie producer learn from Julia and Jason.  They are very accessible, engaging, helpful, and fun to learn from.  I’ve even watched the classes again at home and learned something new every time I watch.  It’s so important to have a good pitch and business plan, and this class teaches you how to do that.”

     — Elizabeth Aseltine, Producer

 

“One of the best things about this class was that Julia and Jason are active working professionals, with current up to date info on how to fund films and TV projects.  I got a really good overview of both market places: what types of projects are most viable and what type of presentation materials are needed to command attention and garner enthusiasm. This course really helped me to put my project slate together so I could go out and not only attract investors but also build the best project team.  I highly recommend it for anyone serious about getting their ventures into production.”

     — Vincent Spano, Actor/Writer/Director/Producer
