The old system is broken. I know that. You know that.
That’s why I’m creating a new system for filmmakers — for artists. And I will lead by example.
Got this message today, after explaining my vision for the future of film to him a few weeks ago. Love it.
I will not let you down. I can’t, and I won’t.
The thing is, it’s not as simple as some emendations to Hollywood.
But instead it will be a RADICAL shift towards being an entrepreneur and taking charge of your life. Not blaming others. And having the courage to move forward (with the right strategies to match).
One of my most popular videos is me answering a student’s question on how to make a living as a director / screenwriter.
Then I got an email from another student who said he knows someone who actually makes a living writing scripts — for indies!
WHAT. For indies!? This is what I’m talking about!
So you know me, I had to find out how. I grilled him to find out his strategies:
- An exact email template YOU can use to pitch your projects
- How much time did he devote daily to screenwriting in order to make a full-time living (in less than 2 years)
- How he get his scripts optioned on a regular basis
- Getting your first paid project
Watch the podcast and adapt the insights to you. It only takes one insight to change your life forever.
I can’t wait to see how far you go in life.

You know how Eminem is the Rap God? Well up North there in Canada, Curt's referred to as Toronto's "Film God." Studying mathematics and physics, his switch to filmmaking has given him a unique eye where he sees how things are traditionally done in the industry and goes "Um.. WTF." With a focus on results, and not just "festivals", Curt has taken cues from the startup world as well as deep psychology to help other independent filmmakers get connected, get funded, and make money with their films.
