How do you get a grant? Artists will learn how to talk about their show in ways attractive to non-profit funders, film juries, and public officials. This course provides 1) an overview of the types of grants/fellowships available to indie TV creators and their different priorities; 2) the pros and cons of working with grants; 3) the preparatory work that goes into securing a grant; and 4) best practices for making sure your application is competitive. We will go over sample grants and show how each question is designed to give an opportunity to show the value of you and your work. (1 hr 30 mins)
