ABOUT WEBINARS AND WORKSHOPS
These events are targeted at all levels of filmmakers. They provide networking opportunities as well as valuable and practical information about the business of filmmaking.
After reading and reviewing thousands of proposals and writing a couple hundred, WMM Production Assistant Consultant and documentary writer/producer Cynthia Kane share her expertise in a new webinar on rethinking the proposal to make sure you get it over the ‘finishing line’. Besides getting you MONEY, proposals can help you to imagine and reimagine the success of your documentary film. So lets get funded!
Kane comes from a film and writing background and has spent most of the career on the “other side of the fence” in both the broadcast, cable and funding organizations arena. Since Al Jazeera America (she was a senior producer in the documentary unit there) closed in 2016, she has worked as a creative consultant, co-producer, producer and exec producer and her recent projects include Zeva Oelbaum and Sabine Krayenbühl’s Letters from Baghdad about the extraordinary life and times of Gertrude Bell as creative consultant; Kim A Snyder and Maria Cuomo Cole’s Lessons From a School Shooting: Notes from Dunblane as co-producer; Maria Finitzo’s The Dilemma of Desire as producer; Maia Lekow and Chris King’s The Letter; and Kim A Snyder and Maria Cuomo Cole and Lori Cheatle’s Us Kids as co-producer. Aside from working with Women Make Movies, she currently works with Barbara Kopple and Cabin Creek Films.
