Around the topic of Raising money and Finding Investors, one item that many filmmakers are not familiar with is SEC, and the securities laws they enforce. This is absolutely something that all filmmakers should be aware of before you set-up your investment and begin pitching investors.
What is SEC? How do you stay compliant in order to not run into legal problems with investors? What are the rules, regulations? What are the different kinds of filings?
It is such an important and yet dense topic we decided to bring in Entertainment Attorney and NFSNTFNP member Cathie Saadeh for an in-depth discussion about SEC issues that we highly suggest all filmmakers watch.
We learned so much talking to Cathie and we are excited to share this information with you!

"Amazing. My brain is still buzzing. Really helps us see some (Marketing/Distribution) possibilities we hadn't thought of...plus feel we're on the right track with others. Sara, thank you so much. You're a treasure. "
"Sara Elizabeth Timmins workshops, masterminds and the collaborative community she’s created are incredible! I can’t recommend them highly enough. Sara Elizabeth is candid, supportive, a wealth of practical information and she goes above and beyond to clarify and explain issues. Her mentorship and advice are inspirational and her enthusiasm is contagious. Sara’s classes have given me the confidence and clear understanding of what’s possible to produce high production, quality projects within reasonable budgets and lifted the veil for me in areas that I didn’t understand. "
"These classes have taught me the complexities of producing independent films and there were so many great ideas that I personally had never thought of. Sara Elizabeth has been a vitally integral part of my education in the entertainment/film business and her tutelage helps me avoid so many mistakes and pitfalls that I could easily fall into. 5 classes and COUNTING. Thank you Ms. Timmins. "
"Sara Elizabeth's commitment to supporting the film community is unparalleled and her classes highlighted major gaps in my knowledge which I was able to rectify to move forwards in my projects. My pitching (both written materials and verbal) have improved significantly and I can approach potential partners with renewed confidence."
