A lot can get done when you focus in for a short period of time on a single, major problem that’s keeping your project from moving forward. Sometimes you need outside guidance and to be pointed in the right direction to make a huge leap forward.
These 30 minute strategy sessions offer laser-focused guidance at any stage of your project. Most filmmakers seek guidance in three key areas: they're having trouble packaging their project and brining on talent, they're struggling to find financing, or they are unsure of how to distribute their completed film. These sessions were designed to home in on your biggest problem area and to help you find solutions to get you unstuck and back on track. Of course if you have a TV project or a digital project we're happy to offer guidance with those as well.
LENGTH: 30 MINUTES via phone or Skype
