THE CONCEPT: Hollywood is a business. It's called show business. It's not called show art. And anyone, with talent (talent can't be taught), can learn the business of making and selling Feature Films, even Documentaries & TV/Cable Programs, once given the basic information.
THE PROOF: With this simple concept the “2-Day Film School” has launched 1,000s of film careers (Quentin Tarantino, Will Smith, Guy Ritchie, Chris Nolan, Damon Wayans, Queen Latifah, etc.) that have led to over $16,000,000,000 (Yes, B) in Box Office successes.
THE CURRICULUM: The course assumes you have talent and is broken into two days focusing 100% on the business (Day-1) of making a feature film and the business (Day-2) of selling that feature film.
Day-1, “FILMMAKING A-Z”, teaches step-by-step how to create, write, package, cast, direct, shoot & edit your first HD/Digital feature film on budgets from as little as $10,000 (Micro-Budget) to as high as $10,000,000 (Low-Budget).
Day-2, “DEALMAKING A-Z”, teaches how to market, sell and finance feature films by attending festivals, while securing pre-sells & maximizing profits from Theatrical, Foreign, Cable/TV, DVD, VOD, SOD, EST and 20 other revenue sources.
