Los Angeles, CA (The Hollywood Times) 11/15/2021- Do you have a film that you want to get financed, but don’t have a way to connect with financers? Do you wish that it could be easier to connect with showrunners and studio executives who could help lead you to the next level? Do you feel like everyone else has better connections to agents and managers than you do? If you have answered yes to any of these questions then this free online masterclass is for you.
Decision-Maker Meetings is an online seminar that will teach you how to bypass gatekeepers and book high-level meetings with film financiers, studio executives, producers, and agents. Hosted by award-winning actor, writer, and director Justin Giddings and LinkedIn expert and creative business strategist Mara McCann; this seminar will teach you how to get to top decision-makers at networks, how to create an authentic branded page on LinkedIn that gets exec’s reaching out to you, how to have meaningful intro Zoom meetings with high-level executives that can give your career a quantum leap, and how to use big data and AL to your advantage to attract the exact type of work you want.
With 15+ years of experience specializing in emerging tech, mentorship of start-ups, and partnership development, McCann has the expertise to help any company get the boost that it needs. She was on the business development team at one of the top innovation labs in New York as well as the acting advisor to the founder of a Silicon Valley early-stage technology investment incubator who is now listed in the top 50 futurists worldwide. This past year, McCann was chosen as one of 40 entrepreneurs for a select residency for future thinkers and social activists at Sundance. She is currently building an entertainment Hub on LinkedIn’s event platform, Hub. With all this knowledge, McCann believed that she needed to help struggling entrepreneurs who are having a hard time “breaking” into the entertainment business and teamed up with Giddings to create this opportunity.
Giddings is no stranger to the entertainment arena either. He started as an actor on shows like Shameless, Nashville, and General Hospital. Despite all his success, he decided to change course and go behind the camera. Winning multiple awards and gaining distribution and development deals with Gaiam TV for his first two shorts, Giddings continues to work as a writer and director. Giddings is also known as the Kickstarter Guy, the #1 crowdfunding coach for filmmakers. Having coached over 190 clients, helped raise $7.8 million, and has a 97% success rate has made Giddings an official Kickstarter Expert.
