WGF x Business of Creating: Financing Indie Projects

About This Campaign

We at the WGF may have hit a pause on our live events, but thanks to technology, we’re aiming to provide more access to advice and knowledge from film and TV writers while we’re all social distancing. Over the next few weeks, we’re hosting free Zoom panels about craft and all things relevant to writers.

For this session, we once again team up with Business of Creating for a conversation with seasoned entertainment executives on financing independent projects and practical steps you can take while staying at home. Topics include structuring investor agreements; what to include in your financing presentation deck and how that differs from a talent presentation deck; and how to attract financing in a Covid world.


Joseph Lanius, Founding Partner at Lanius Law & Associates

Amanda Marshall, President of Cold Iron Films

Todd Olsson, President of International at Highland Film Group

Moderated by Jennifer Mangan, writer/producer, Beautiful Day Productions

Panel begins at 4:00pm Pacific Time.
