When you complete this introductory training, you will know the steps to take your story from script to screen.
Write Your Screenplay
In order to make a great film, you need a great screenplay. The characters need to seem real, and the dialogue must sound natural. The plot needs to be suspenseful, and the story needs to have a satisfying ending. This step-by-step video training will show you how to write a great screenplay, using techniques that professional screenwriters have used for decades.
Film Business Plan
A film business plan is a document that tells prospective investors what your movie is about and how much it will cost to produce.

In this video training, Tom Malloy shows you how to finish your film business plan fast.
Development Funding Strategy
After producing multiple feature films, I realized there is one distinct secret strategy between feature films that get produced and those that do not. A large percentage of the projects where I employed the “funded development strategy” was successful in getting the green light. In this step-by-step video training, you’ll discover how to employ this strategy in your own film production.
Cast Name Actors
Casting name actors is often the differentiating factor between producing a backyard indie or making a professionally produced film. And when your film is fully finished and ready for the marketplace, having a name cast is often the difference between landing a theatrical release or a straight to VOD release. This step-by-step video training shows you how to find, approach, and cast name actors.

Pitch Your Film
You can learn a lot about the filmmaking process. But unless you learn how to pitch, your career will move at a very slow pace. For this reason, pitching is THE most important skill you can learn to accelerate your filmmaking success.

Getting a film distribution deal is exciting. After all your hard work, your feature film will finally be available on popular platforms like Netflix for the world to see. That is until you get the dreaded call. Your motion picture delivery has failed quality control, and you missed the delivery window. As a result, your distribution deal is dead. This video training helps you avoid common delivery pitfalls.
