Have you read a newspaper or magazine lately?
Seen the news on TV?
Everywhere we turn, we hear about doom-and-gloom: “the largest world financial crisis in 100 years” and “the new world recession.” And believe me, this “world crisis” will continue for many months and eventually affect all of us.
But despite what is happening now, (wars, recession, global warming etc.) people still have a strong desire to keep learning. It is part of human nature to want to constantly improve our knowledge about ourselves, our jobs and the world around us.
As filmmakers, we are no different. We continue to crave any information that will keep us more connected to our passion; that will keep us on the cutting edge of our profession; and that will inform us how to quickly update our existing skills to increase our income.
With that in mind, I decided to create the very first ever “Damn the Doom-and-Gloom 7-Day Fire Sale for Filmmakers!”
And to give every filmmaker around the world a chance to purchase this course at an “extremely” discounted price, I’m going to start on Wednesday, December 10 with a sale price of $7.00!
I will then raise the price of the audio seminar every few days until the 7-Day Fire Sale is over.
Here is the price breakdown for the 7-Day Fire Sale:
Day 1: Wednesday, December 10 ($7.00)
Day 2, 3, 4: Thursday, Dec. 11 to Saturday Dec. 13 ($17.00)

On Wednesday, Dec. 17, “The Art and Craft of the Director Audio Seminar” returns to it’s current price of $37.00.
