Documentary Funding: Getting Your Project to “Green Light”

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Many faculty have great ideas for documentary projects but do not necessarily have exposure to the procedures of how to present their ideas for funding and distribution (or, television acquisition). This panel is aimed at providing faculty with advice and tools to take their idea from the proposal, to the pitch and (hopefully!) to "green light!" Panelists will each provide 10-minute presentations on documentary funding options, proposal “best practices” drawn from winning submissions and the importance of a strong project pitch prior to opening the floor to Q&A and discussion.
Moderator: Michael R. Ogden, Central Washington University
Chris Turner, Independent Television Service (ITVS), “From Concept to Contract: The Path of an ITVS Proposal”
Steve Weiss, Clubhouse Productions & Colorado State University, “News & Sports Documentary Funding Options in Today’s Television Marketplace”
Michael R. Ogden, Central Washington University, "Low Budget Film Financing: Is Crowdsourcing The Answer?"
