Fundraising is a daunting task, especially if you're doing it solo, but hiring a full-time fundraiser is expensive ($75,000-$100,00 a year salary) and out of reach when you're raising $100,00, $200,000, $300,00, etc.

In this masterclass, you'll learn how to move from being a solo-fundraiser to having a whole team without blowing your budget from film business coach, Joanne Butcher.

Join us for the 2-day masterclass Tired of Going Solo: Expand Your Film Fundraising Team!

When: March 21 and 22 10:30am PT/1:30pmET - 1:30pm PT/4:30pm ET

Cost: $27 for only the masterclass or $77 for the VIP ticket, which includes the masterclass as well as an opportunity to have an exclusive VIP session, alongside other VIPs, to work directly with Joanne to perfect your logline. Crafting a logline that really sells your film is vital, as it's what you use to entice investors, actors and other people to be part of your film.
