WHAT

OTHERS SAY:

“I want to thank Julia Verdin for

her support. I took Producer’s

Foundation Certificate course with Julia, and

her guest speakers Charles Berg and

Mark Stolaroff. It made me feel like I

could do this. And, voila! Here’s my

film, ANGELITO IN YOUR EYE,

 starting the festival

circuit by first entering Los Angeles

Independent Film Festival Awards as

an official selection!”

    —

Judy Sandra

“You deserve a big applause for

connecting creativity to

passion by your awesome

productive curriculum,

classes and support to your students and

alumni all over USA and world. Julia

Verdin’s Producing course was a

big boost to my

career. I had no background in filmmaking

and this is where Raindance stepped

in by offering me their best

support and constantly mentoring me

during this course. I

highly recommend the classes

by Raindance for both first timers and

established filmmakers to update

their knowledge.  I

dedicate our award to Ms. Verdin and

Raindance LA.  Thank you so much

Julia and Raindance!”
