In this session, Independent Director, Producer and Actor, Rosie Lourde, will be in conversation with producers Lisa Shaunessy (The Furies) and Ashley McLeod (Sweet River).

Using their two films as case studies, the speakers will talk about how low budget drama projects can be financed outside the regular sources of funding, revealing the alternative and innovative ways they approached financing their projects. 

The session aims to help filmmakers understand the compatibility of different kinds of alternative finance sources with specific kinds of project. Subject-matter, themes, target audience, location and many other factors come into play when considering which potential investors to pitch to – and how to pitch to them. This webinar will show attendees how to identify key elements of a project and translate those into viable finance and pitching strategies.
