Overwhelmed by an upcoming grant/media fund deadline? Don't know
how to begin to gather your materials? Or do you just want to start
making your own projects and need to write a funding proposal? If so,
this workshop is for you. This workshop will introduce you to the
preparation, organization and submission of a successful grant
proposal/package to foundations, donors/prospects and film funds.
Most proposals/packages can increase their possibilities of funding if
done properly. Many mistakes are oversights that could be avoided. Our
facilitator will lead you through the basic steps and general overview
needed to complete a successful grant-writing campaign and/or a film or
television project proposal sharing her years of experience in the
field. Participants are encouraged to engage in the learning process by
bringing their upcoming proposals to follow along, ask questions and
seek limited personalized assistance after the workshop.
You will also get an overall overview of the industry and what you will
need to know when preparing to present your projects to a funder.
What you will get: a general overview of how to prepare your
grants/proposals and the job of fundraising/presenting your film to
prospects as well as a comprehensive list of SOURCES of funding and
their contact information to save you time and money.
This is an intensive seminar so make sure you are rested and free from
distractions as there will be a lot of information covered and virtually
