Description

The Thriving Filmmaker Webinar is a 90-minute hands-on webinar designed to help you freelance for freedom (not for free) and foster transparent, welcoming discussions about career sustainability. By the end of this workshop you will have (1) identified your top three career goals, (2) identified three ways to generate income that align with those goals, and (3) created a “freedom rubric” to help you identify which freelance gigs to take that help you thrive rather than just survive. Presented by Impact Producer Ani Mercedes of Looky Looky Pictures, this webinar will help you develop vital skills for your independent documentary film career. This is interactive, so come ready to answer personal reflection questions and take notes!


**A copy of this webinar will be available to all registrants for three months after the recording is posted.
