The Business of My Film Series

I Gotta Do What?!! provides a comprehensive set of tools for filmmakers to navigate the creation, financing, producing, and distribution of their films… Answers to getting your films made, seen, and sold worldwide.

We’re starting our first interactive workshop to help you be successful with your feature film. Maybe you have a great script you want to take the reins on and drive to success or maybe you’ve done this before, but need some help in taking it all to the next level. No matter what, the first of three sessions on the business of your film is now accepting enrollment.

Note: These workshops are being held in the Phoenix, Arizona area. If you want us to bring these courses to another town, please contact us here.
