So, You've Never Been to Film School? Neither Have I.
But before we get into that, let me ask you a fundamental question:

Have you ever watched a reality TV show and thought to yourself, “I could have come up with a better show?” 

Chances are, you have an interesting show idea, one that you can envision being on screen. But you have zero experience in the industry, have never been to film school, and are clueless about starting the process to turn your idea into an actual concept?

Well, guess what...can I let you in on a secret?

You don't need to attend a film school to become a producer. I know because I am one.

Let’s be honest; you probably do have an incredible idea that just might even be Emmy-worthy - you just need the RIGHT tools to develop and package your concept properly.

Look, when I first started in the industry 25 years ago, I had zero experience. My degrees were in finance and marketing – not exactly the most creative.

 

I know, right? You probably weren't expecting that information.

I was totally 100% self-taught. Yes, I had to teach myself about the business and producing because, at the time, there were no other means for me to learn other than going to film school. 

Plus, film school wasn't an option because it came at a heavy price, LITERALLY. The price tag alone was a huge turn-off.

BUT, MY  LACK OF EXPERIENCE DIDN'T STOP ME. 
REALITY%20TV%20ARTWORK%20THREE(1)_edited

Like you, I had a burning desire to make my mark in the industry as a producer.

 

So, I immersed myself in learning everything about the entertainment business, and I seized any and every opportunity to gain the hands-on skills that I couldn't learn in a textbook.

This leap of faith and betting on myself changed my life forever. 

 

Looking back, I didn't even know that I was creating history when I produced Being Bobby Brown with legendary icon Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown – it turns out I became a pioneer in shaping urban celebrity reality TV genre.

None of it would have happened if I had let my lack of skills or experience get in the way. Or if I lacked self-belief. 

Now you have the chance to cut your learning curve in half and tap into my knowledge and experience, joining the new generation of creatives who will take the television industry by storm.

DEVELOPING YOUR BIG IDEA

How the Pros Create!

When I say development is the art of turning your idea into a unique concept – I mean that it defines the who, what, when, and where. We all hate it development and I get that.

I could sell the Making Reality TV course for $10,000, and it would be a steal.

Emory University Goizuetta Business School hired me for 4 years to teach what I know to their students, who were investing thousands in their education. 

 

When I was creating this course, I thought about someone like myself when I didn't have the skills or knowledge or an extra $20K and up for film school.

I thought about when I had to bet on myself, and if I just had a small lifeline - it would have made things so much easier.

So, after going back and forth with my team, I decided to give you everything above for just $4997.

 

At that price, it’s a no-brainer. Why?
