Everything you need to attract great clients, win the pitch, and deliver work that keeps them coming back for more. All while earning a healthy profit on every project.
At Story & Heart, we’ve worked with hundreds of commercial filmmakers, both new and experienced.
And there are two common areas where we see most filmmakers struggle...
1) Attracting the right clients consistently. (You know, the companies you actually want to work with.)
2) Making great work that both you and the client are proud of, while still being profitable.
Whether you’ve been in business for awhile, or you’re just getting started, you will undoubtedly hit a wall in these two areas.
Why? Because it’s shockingly easy to price your work so that it’s not profitable for you. You probably won’t even know it until you’ve delivered the project.
And there are always companies looking for commercials at a bargain price. Turns out, these companies are rarely looking for inspiring, creative work from talented filmmakers.
It’s frustrating. And it’s dangerous.
If you don’t diagnose and fix these issues, your business doesn’t stand much chance of surviving over the long haul.
That’s why we brought in two successful and experienced commercial production companies to ensure you avoid these obstacles altogether.
You’ll not only learn how to market yourself and attract great clients consistently. But you’ll learn how to turn a profit on every project you make.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
The workshop covers every piece of the commercial filmmaking process, from pitch to production to delivery — everything you need to get your commercial business off the ground (or take an existing business to the next level.)
