Filmmaking can feel helpless. Often we get trapped in the false narrative that all we can do is sit back and wait for someone to open the golden door of wealth and fame… but frankly, that’s bullsh*t. This is an industry full of opportunities for those who are willing to engage in the entrepreneurial grind of building a profitable entity within the film industry. This course will give you the basic, high level tools to propel you on your journey to leaving your day job and carving out a space for yourself in this industry.
