Mark has this to say

'As a completely independent film-maker, for many years I understood how to be creative as a director, since learning how to produce my finance packages, I have been able to get more bang for my buck so to speak from my small scale independent budgets, as my career develops, as do the budgets, and so I wanted to work with Future Artists to deliver a simple 'How to' business workshop, so that the next generation can put the 'North' of England on the map -  on financing your work, its easier than you think, if you know how'.
