15 – Conversation with Author, Film Funding Consultant Morrie Warshawski

November 25, 2016

morrie1What bigger question does the documentary filmmaker have than ‘Where can I find funding for my film?’ ?  Well, today’s documentary industry guest is writer and film funding guru, Morrie Warshawski.  Morrie wrote the well-known (and well read!) book on creative, practical, and (dare I say?) fun ways of funding your documentary film, Shaking the Money Tree: The Art of Getting Grants and Donations for Film and Video Projects.

So much inspiring and practical advice to be had in this podcast!  Among other topics discussed, are the importance of having the triad of a mission statement, core values, and vision.  Morrie’s infamous house fundraising party and the topics of how/why you need a fiscal sponsor for your project are just a few of the topics covered!
