  2. Rated 5 out of 5


    I really enjoyed Creating a Film Business Plan, it was very informative and I feel like I can move forward in the areas I was “stuck” and that now I am much more informed. Elliot has a wealth of knowledge and graciously shares it. This is a must for anyone thinking of producing their own work.
