I have recently begun monetizing my content on YOUTUBE. I am an independent filmmaker. I create scripted content and my channel has over 1 million views and 2.5K subscribers. I have recently wrapped production on a new web series. I am planning the season 2 of the series that is currently on my channel. I am also planning interim content which is content that will be talks with the cast and crew of the projects and I am planning alternative content for members and patrons on patreon filmmaker 101 courses are in the works as well. My challenges are fundraising for the scripted productions which require much more funding than the interim and alternative content. I have come out of pocket for most of it. I work as a teaching Artist to pay the bills however, I want to scale up my content creation business and so my time is limited because I have to spend a large portion of the day towards my day gig. So time management is a challenge. Marketing is also a challenge as is funding for that as well. I have done pitch decks/business plans for each of my projects but I have not done a business plan for Eternal City TV/Eternal City productions yet. I could need a bit of help in developing that.
Actions I’ve taken so far
I have completed production for new content. I have done some paid promotion on facebook and I promote on instagram and facebook and linkedin as well. I have a basic website for my production company. I have pitch decks/business plans and prelim budgets for all of my projects in development.
My future goals
Use Eternal City TV as proof of concept for larger budget long form projects for potential investors. Get first feature film into production with the next 2 years and first television series placed on a development slate of a platform or network.
My motivations to work with a mentor
I need guidance with areas I know I have limited experience ande expertise.
