A New Direction for Filmmaker Freedom

Hey friend, long time no see.

I hadn't been planning on releasing new episodes of Filmmaker Freedom this year, but events transpired that completely shifted those plans.

And now, I'm happy to announce that Filmmaker Freedom will be a weekly show from now on, and it will be primarily focused on entrepreneurial indie filmmakers.

In other words, if your goal is the make the films you care most about, and earn a sustainable living from those films, you'll learn how on this new variation of Filmmaker Freedom.

I'll teach you everything I know about building niche audiences online, selling directly to your fans, and cutting out the shitty middle men that have made the indie film business so untenable for so many years.

Basically, we're going to achieve "filmmaker freedom" together, in the truest sense of that phrase.

So if that sounds like something you'd enjoy, please do tune in to today's teaser episode. I'll tell you the full story of how we got here, and where we're going.
