Learn from Moonshot Initiative — the organization that has produced 36 high-caliber short films with 900 women and non-binary filmmakers, which have been screened at over 100 film festivals. In this course, we will cover: - Funding - Locations - Insurance - Scheduling - Choosing, renting, transporting and storing equipment - Post-production - Festival submissions Producing isn't just about these tangible tasks; it's also about working with people. We'll discuss running a team, dealing with creative differences, creating a positive set, and keeping up momentum when funding stalls or when post-production drags on.

I would highly recommend this course to aspiring TV & film writers/creatives. The daily prompts helped me push past feelings of stuckness and writer’s block, and the meetups helped offer diverse perspectives and experiential learning of fellow cohort members. One of the best investments in my creative career. I have a framework now for my pilot, which gave me the direction I needed to move forward with bringing my idea one step closer to reality.
