Discover Our E-Course

Our e-course on crowdfunding for indie filmmakers offers a comprehensive exploration of preparing, launching, and running a successful crowdfunding campaign. This course is guided by Jenn Lindsay, an award-winning documentary filmmaker, social scientist, and Ted Talk speaker.

 

When we started out our learning journey on finding funds for our films, we couldn't relate with the instructors we found and their point of view, which focused more on revenue rather than art/mission. Hence, we have decided to make a course - available on Udemy - about what we learnt ourselves to give indie filmmakers (like us) someone they can relate to, and learn about crowdfunding the indie way, with indie budgets. This course is made by indie filmmakers for indie filmmakers through and through. We know the struggles, we have been there, and we still have a lot of them ahead of us. There will always be new challenges, but learning from others' experiences is the first step to learn by doing, just like us indie filmmakers do. We hope our guidance will lead you to success! The results totally depend on you, but aren't all indie films that way? ;)
