Part 01: The Right Mindset


The first step in the lm funding process is identifying your budget. Don’t guess at this number. Reach out to an experienced line producer. A line producer will evaluate your screenplay and then provide you with a schedule and a budget.

Once you have your budget, you need to believe you can raise the money. Write down your intention on paper, something like: “I will attract the financing for my lm within a year.” Put that paper where you can see it. And every time you glance at the words, repeat the mantra over and over. And each time, visualize yourself accepting a check or seeing the money in your bank account.

Over time this practice will change your thinking. Your thinking will change your beliefs. And your beliefs will influence the actions you take. You’ll be surprised how adopting this lm funding mindset will positively reshape your life.
