An essential function of the producer is to recognize, source and capitalize on financing opportunities. Toward that goal, this course provides a comprehensive understanding of how the "money chase" works beginning with a survey of traditional finance structures such as co-productions, tax credits and equity investment and concluding with a hands-on crowd-funding campaign run by students in support of their capstone thesis projects.

Prerequisite: Matriculation in the M.F.A. in Cinema Arts and permission of the program director.
