  • CLASS 2: BUILDING TRUST & CREDIBILITY (Sept. 1)
    • Is this your first film and you are worried potential investors won’t take you seriously?  Are you fearful you don’t have enough experience to woo your investors? Having your investor materials is important but the key to really hooking an investor and making them comfortable boarding your project is the trust and credibility you are able to establish in the meeting or pitch.  The feeling that you know your industry, your film and you have set yourself and your film up for success. We will explore some very practical things you can do to help establish an environment that your potential investor feels comfortable, trusting and believes in you and your ability to make this a fantastic film and experience that they can’t pass up.  (Handout: Building Trust Worksheet)
