This is the crash course where Raindance founder Elliot Grove will introduce the world of indie filmmaking, with dozens of filmmaking tips, in just 99 minutes. An ideal opportunity for everyone with a great documentary (or feature) film idea who needs some help to get started.

Topics that will be dealt with are:

  • Finding a do-able script

  • Getting your film seen
  • Social media basics for filmmakers
  • The career ladder
  • Distribution and exhibition
