Shaking the Money Tree: The Art of Getting Grants and Donations for Film and Video Projects (3rd Edition)


Demystified: the art of getting grants and donations for film and video projects.

Shaking the Money Tree became an instant classic when its first edition appeared in 1994. Now considered the bible on fundraising for independent noncommercial film and video, this new expanded 3rd edition takes media makers—and anyone interested in the art of fundraising—into the 21st century, and includes sidebars with practical advice from seasoned professionals in the field.

Warshawski completely demystifies the art of fundraising for independent film and video projects for student, emerging, and seasoned media makers. Shaking the Money Tree covers all the bases: private foundation and government grants, individuals, houseparties, and new alternative methods involving the internet and social networking.
