Thank you for your compelling stories. I have had a marvelous time reviewing your films and I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to get to know you and your films through our grant. I also appreciate your kind donations to the grant.
The list of names are the finalists. Please do not be discouraged if your name is not on this list. Tenacity is the backbone of the filmmaker. Keep trying for my grant, other grants, funding parties, NYSCA, leave no stone unturned.
I promised to give you a personal consultation so please email me with a time that you can call me in California, preferably from 2 to 5PM LA time. I need your name and the grant you applied for and I will email back with a confirmation. Caroleedean@att.net
We can talk about funding or improving your proposal or whatever you want. Remember, funding starts in your mind, so just continue to keep the faith and stay in the flow; use your mind to create your film through your belief.
Visualize your film from beginning to end. See the credits as you sit back in a posh chair at Raleigh Studios screening room and watch as the lights go down and your film comes up. Feel the emotions of pride, excitement, relief and success at the completion of your film.
This visualization into the future can create the present. That’s right. Daydreaming is in. Go into the future and create the present, it works! Doors begin to open that were never there before.
Keep trying. Enter this grant again, search for more grants, do funding parties, networking parties and leave no stone unturned. There is money for your film; you need to know your film will be completed.
If your name is not on this list, please do not be disheartened. Keep entering this grant and other grants, perseverance is part of filmmaking. If you are not creating a pile of rejections, you are not doing your job! It was the third submission that won for several of our successful grant winners.
I promised each of you a 15 minute consultation and you can email me for an appointment untill October 1, 2008. Tell me what is a good day and time for you to talk and then you will call me once you have a confirmation. We can talk about anything you want, funding, proposal, trailer, whatever you need to move the film forward. I am in California so give me LA times and here is my number 805 984 0098. Carole
