1st module: the development stage; financing, co-production and legal aspects. Learn about the best digital tools to shoot and post-produce their project in the most efficient way;

2nd module (Virtual Training Module): Financing, co-production and legal aspects (2) and Web site development;

3rd module and follow-up: Marketing and Distribution techniques in the digital era.

Follow-up: during each module and with the support and coaching of their assigned Mentors, participants will be expected to apply techniques, feedback and experience acquired in the different modules.
