Become A Member And Get Instant Access To Essential Training, Resources And Community So You Can Level Up Your Filmmaking


Dear Filmmaker,

Do you want to produce films and get them noticed, but you are struggling because you don’t have enough time and it feels like too much work?

Does it feel easier to just let someone else make movies, even though you believe in your ability? Or perhaps you’ve been stymied by fear that the process is too complicated, or maybe you just don’t know where to start? If so, I understand . . .

My name is Tom Malloy. I'm an independent film producer. I’ve produced sixteen films and I’ve raised over $25 million from private equity investors to fund those films... And long before I produced my first feature film, I was a lot like you... I wanted to improve our craft and "level up" my filmmaking... I had a lot of questions.

When it comes to producing a motion picture, you go through a bunch of different phases. You've probably heard about production and distribution... But what happens before you go into production? What does the development stage consist of? Is it possible to fund development? And once you have a screenplay ready for production, what is the next step for raising the money? And how do I find investors. And even if I find investors and raise the money, and produce the film... How do I sell it?

It took me decades to figure out all this filmmaking stuff. When you join Filmmaking Stuff HQ, you'll get a solid roadmap so you can take your filmmaking to the next level. And unlike most filmmakers who operate from a hope and pray strategy, the FSHQ Mastermind program will keep you accountable, so you can get results.

I’m Tom Malloy, and I trail-blazed a path as an actor/writer/producer in the early 2000’s before it was a “thing!” 

As a writer, I’ve written over 30 screenplays. I’ve been WGA for 20+ years, and I’ve optioned, sold, or made into movies 24 of those screenplays.

As an actor, I’ve starred in indie films with Elisabeth Moss, Eliza Dushku, Tim Hutton, Cary Elwes, Betty White, Billy Zane, and Amy Smart!

As a producer, I’ve raised over 25M and produced 16 films (so far) with a half dozen others in various stages of development.  

As an author, I wrote the book BANKROLL, which was the gold standard book for years on film financing!  And I love teaching what I know.

Valuable and Comprehensive

The training resources are extremely valuable, comprehensive, and frequently expanding. As an independent filmmaker, the open and honest conversations during the Mastermind bi-weekly calls are encouraging and useful in navigating an ever-changing industry. I've also connected with many quality group members that are in various phases of their own film projects. If you're ready to up your game, I'd highly recommend Filmmaking Stuff HQ.
