FILMMAKERS AND FINANCING:
Financial Strategies and Business Plans for Both Independent Filmmakers and Investors with Instructor, Louise Levison
Presented by IMAGE Film And Video Center
If you want to cash in on the $8 billion independent film market, come to this workshop with Louise Levison, author of Filmmakers and Financing: Business Plans for Independents. Taking the mystique out of film financing for both filmmakers and investors, she’ll clarify, demystify and streamline the business plan process. In the process, you will understand the business of the industry, markets and distribution; how the money flows and how to develop financial projections.
LOUISE LEVISON is President of Business Strategies, a consulting firm that specializes in writing business plans for films and film companies. She is the author of Filmmakers & Financing: Business Plans for Independents and publisher/editor of The Film Entrepreneur: A Newsletter for the Independent Filmmaker and Investors. Levison's clients have raised money for low-budget films, such as The Blair Witch Project, the most profitable independent film in history, and for companies raising as much as $300 million. She is an Adjunct Professor in the Extension Program at UCLA and has been a Visiting Professor at the Taipei (Taiwan) National University of the Arts and conducted workshops at film festivals around the U.S. and overseas.
