For the past few years, I’ve been obsessed with the question:
“What is a generalizable strategy I can use to solve almost ANY filmmaking issue when it comes to funding, distribution, marketing, and limiting beliefs?”
Starting indiefilmTO was an answer to that and I brought thousands of other students with me on this journey.
So where’d I find the answer?
No where… It didn’t exist!
I had to create it by reading and coalescing 200+ books on psychology and business. That’s when I had to coin a neologism to describe it.
I call it, being iftological.
3 years ago, no one knew my name. Now, I’m working on my 2nd and 3rd feature, and get emails like the above on a regular basis — all because of iftological thinking.
I don’t say this to impress you, but instead to impress upon you how vital thinking iftologically is.
This is advanced so wait until next week if you want something easier.

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.
