Frequently Asked Questions:​

How do teams work?

A team consists of no more than two people. Both must be an above-the-line crew and hold either a position of writer or producer on the film for which you are creating a business plan. We will not accept people who are hired directors and did not write or produce the film.

Can I present more than one film project? Since this is a one-day intensive we will only accept one film presentation. 

Do I need to have a written script?

You should have a draft of your script written (does not have to be your final draft) and you are ready to put a business plan together to seek out investors and create a marketing strategy.

I'm still trying to figure out how to make a pitch deck. Do I need to have one before bootcamp starts?  Yes. The purpose of this workshop is to fine-tune your pitch materials. Do the best you can and be ready to submit them before class starts. 

Do I need a trailer or a 2-minute video pitch to attend the class? No, you do not need to have a trailer or video pitch to attend class. You will be presenting your pitch to the class so if you do not have a video you can do it verbally. 

How does the Payment Plan work?

The price of the class will be broken up into three monthly payments. The payments will be deducted automatically each month on the card you provide. If you have a discount code the discount will be applied to the first payment. If you do not have funds available at the time of the automatic deduction a $25 late feel will be applied to your account. After two late payments you will no longer have access to any learning materials until your balance is paid in full. 

What if I have to miss class?

Unfortunately, this class is an in-person, hands-on class. It will not be recorded. If you miss the class you will receive a credit for another one of our workshops. 


What if I need to cancel? 
If you need to cancel, full refunds are available until the day before class. If you need to cancel once class starts your payment can be credited to another class, workshop, or service we provide.

How many students per class? 
This class will be limited to 15 students/teams.
