The technical aspects of making modern movies and the cost to promote and distribute them can be incredibly difficult and daunting. However, huge new windows are opening, and opportunities are being created for the truly creative, ambitious, and daring writer. Buyers out there still need movies, desperately, and they are opting for the well made low budget feature film with high concepts.

DVD’s may have died, but there are dozens of new platforms to display movies, not just theaters and tv sets. There are Video On Demand outlets, Cable outlets, Streaming outlets, Webisodes. And they ALL need movies. They consume them like a T-Rex in Jurassic Park! Many actors, producers, agents, and managers are actively seeking new ways to get on film. They cannot count on the High Budget, Tentpole, Studio Based, Sci-Fi and Franchise movies to get their faces or their client’s faces on screen.

And that means they need new Low Budget Screenplays, Low Budget TV reality shows, and character-driven Low Budget Movie ideas. The studios own the big films, but many of the buyers cannot afford the price tag. Still, they need films, so they must turn somewhere! That explains the recent explosion in Low Budget Movie Production. Everyone with a 300-Dollar Go Pro, is getting into the act.

The key to success in this expanding world is to write and direct competent, professional, and hi-concept low budget films. This Webinar is designed to help you do exactly that.
