The Filmmaker Dashboard: Using data to build your filmmaking career
January 10, 2017
As a group of filmmakers ourselves, we started Seed&Spark to be the career building tool for filmmakers we felt we were missing. We had a radical desire to build sustainable careers that didn’t rely on some old middleman to say yes to us. We’ve known from Seed&Spark’s earliest days that access to updated, no-bullshit information would be critical if were were really going to make this possible. It’s one of the reasons why education plays such a major role in our offerings to independent filmmakers, why we’ve taught our classes to thousands around the world. (Not for nothing, so far, crowdfunding class attendees have a 95% campaign success rate…)
