What you'll learn

In this two hour class Naomi gives a clear and easy to understand run down of what filmmakers need to understand about investing in order to pitch to potential investors. The class will cover financing structures, different "types" of money, potential revenue streams, recoupment corridors and waterfalls (i.e. how would they make their money back), and other essentials for business and producing.

Don't worry, this class is not as boring as it sounds - it's a simple explanation that will help you understand stuff that isn't rocket science, but is really helpful to know before you ask people for money. These details can help you stay out of financial trouble and potentially attract a great deal of investment with strong ROI.

-financing structures
-different "types" of money
-potential revenue streams
-recoupment corridors and waterfalls (i.e. how would they make their money back)
