COME JOIN US LIVE IN LA

We’re going to help workshop ideas, mastermind strategies, and connect you with other filmmakers in our network.

It’s all about knowledge and connections. This weekend event is about boosting you in both. We’ll have special guest speakers, industry professionals, distribution consultants, and more. We want to really help you drive home the value of what you’ve learned in the course and help get you connected with each-other.

The 3 of us have been doing this for a long time and our specialties fill in different pieces of the puzzle.

Pedram has built the biggest list, that allowed him to quickly soar to the NY Times bestseller list with his latest book. Pedram does lots of online and TV media and has 3 movies under his belt.

Jeff has been short-listed for an Academy Award following a traditional model and was able to learn, launch and succeed using the online strategies that Pedram, Nick and a few others coached him on

Nick’s films have been
screened in major film festivals worldwide. His innovative content and promotional strategies have given rise to one of the most active health communities online.

DAY 1: May 5, 2018

We’re going to help map out concept, research, and strategy. Let’s show you how we take an idea, pressure test it, and turn it into a movement via film.

1. How to do Proper Market Research and Find Out Who Your Customer Is

We’ll be opening the event with a deep dive into the best practices for pressure testing your film concept before you begin to roll camera. A concrete concept lends itself very well to a catchy elevator pitch – which leads us to… creative financing!

2. Finding Smart Money For Your Films

There is a reason that Jeff has been written up in both Forbes and Business Insider magazine for his breakthrough film funding methods. Because they work. In this interactive talk, the three of us will be taking you through the most effective ways of raising dollars for your film – even before you begin producing it.

3. The Art of the Docuseries

All 3 of us are in the middle of producing our own documentary series’ right this very moment. Jeff himself has successfully launched 4 of them in the past year!  This is a powerful new medium that has serious vitality and generates serious profit. We get asked about this model all the time and decided it would be a good idea to give you guys a full download on how to put one together.

4. Afternoon Hot Seats! Let’s mastermind your film and take your project to the next level.

The 3 of us will guide the discussion, but your peers will play a big role on this one too. As a group we’re that much better.

One of the most powerful ways to pressure test and innovate on your idea is to let your tribe weigh in and help you think through it. There is nowhere else on this planet where you will be surrounded by a group of mission-based, fellow filmmakers like this.

* The 3 of us can give you our personal expertise, but group collaborative is where the rubber meets the road. This is your incubator, your think tank, your trusted inner circle where it’s safe to be wrong in order to create something profoundly impactful.

5. Female Filmmaker Panel

These women are busting through the glass ceiling in the film and TV business and are at the top of their game.  They want to share their experiences and tell you about the cool things they are up to and have you participate in a Q&A and learn from them.

DAY 2: May 6, 2018

1) How To Land, Prepare For and Execute A Successful Interview

Procuring the right talent and squeezing a brilliant performance out of them is one of the most important aspects of documentary filmmaking. But a lot of folks struggle with this part, especially when you’re first starting out. In this session, we’re going to share all of our secrets and show you the power of using the right angle. 

2) Marketing Your Film To The Masses

It’s one thing to make an awesome film, but finding those butts to sit down and watch it is an entirely different art. This is where Nick has excelled with his past 3 documentaries, culminating in the huge success of his most recent film.

Nick will be taking you through how to create a powerful marketing machine around your movie – fueled by a well thought out back end business strategy.

3) Using Facebook Ads and Google Adwords To Bring Thousands Of Viewers To Your Film Each Day

Facebook and Google Ads are being used to blow up brands in just about every industry today – but somehow Hollywood hasn’t followed suit. This spells HUGE OPPORTUNITY for us independent filmmakers. Once you begin to view your movie as a business (this is a core pillar of our Academy), an empowering new world of marketing possibility opens up to you. Buckle up for this one, it’s worth the price of admission alone.
