A global economy means global opportunities. Everyone from studios, to mini-studios, to big production companies and platforms are producing and shooting abroad. Why? Not only does shooting abroad help filmmakers get access to great locations, but it also allows them access to soft money, which minimizes the risk of their investors. While this might sound like something only big corporations can have access to, in reality any independent producer can tap into the same opportunities – if they have the knowledge and the right contacts.
In this interactive class, you’ll learn about different financing models: European vs. American vs. a hybrid model. You’ll also learn about different financing sources – like government and state grants, supra-country grants, tax incentives and shelters – and how they can or cannot work with each model.
The instructor for this class is Martin Rosete, a Spanish-born and Spanish Academy Award nominated filmmaker who’s lived in the US for the past 12 years. Martin will use case studies from his own experiences in filmmaking as examples, to demonstrate the how to’s, pros, and cons, of working in both Europe and the US, and what it’s like to get financing from both places.
