30 min Indiefilm Financing Consult

50


50 simbi per unit - Virtual OK

Listen to your project, and help you figure out which directions to go in financing your project. It's not just about angel investment, there are also grants, debt, product placement, crowdfunding, and a whole lot more.

The beginning of the call will be more me understanding the state of your project, and the general outcome of the call/skype will be me sending you some resources on how to move forward.

The initial consultation may be here on Simbi, but at some point we may move off into other sorts of consultation. This process is much more than something that can be covered in only 30 minutes, but after the call, you'll have a solid idea of where to go and it may well help you better understand the options available to you as an independent filmmaker seeking financing.

I WILL NOT INTRODUCE YOU TO ANGEL INVESTORS.
