How To Find Money For Your Film. Guide For Student Film Makers; Information on Financing, Producing and Distributing Films Independently. Number One.
Prokosch, Mike
Information on financing independent films is provided in this article. Four general hints to the independent filmmaker are provided: to make as many personal contacts as possible, to assess the contact's function in his organization, to scale the proposal to the resources controlled by the contact, and to develop a presentation which sells both the project and its creator. Suggestions about financing two categories of films are then put forth. The first of these is comprised of promotional films produced for schools, charitable institutions, public agencies, educational companies, television, or local industries. The second includes art films financed by flat grants from foundations, corporations and individual investors. Information on film production and distribution is provided in subsequent articles in the series. (PB)
