The Platinum Pias launched an awareness of the movie “Thrillumentary” that before being a feature film is first going to be a 27 webisode web series starting in August.
If you missed the 2017 Platinum Pias on Monday, March 20, you missed a lot of fun and creativity.
We thank our wonderful audience that came out for this event – you were great. A lot of the old faces but some new ones too!
Thanks also to Tina Casula Gross and the Broadway Performing Arts Center with her kid dancers doing a marvelous job.
Cheyenne Gross was terrific as our MC and there was a surprise appearance by two little girls filling in on presenting the “Musician Making a Difference” Platinum Pia presented to Justin A.G.
The program was indeed a celebration of the NYC and international artistic community as well as those making a difference in it.
Additional gratitude goes out to Empire State College, State University of New York for their sponsorship of the event.
And now post Pias we are continuing the educational track by doing a talk at SUNY Empire State at the “Entertainment and Music Residency.” We’re doing a presentation tomorrow on the topic of “How to Fund Your Movie or Creative Project” with a nonprofit approach.
For the independent’s Movie Process the world of nonprofits offers a new source of funding. Let’s face it, the traditional for-profit equity model doesn’t work any more for both the filmmaker and the investor. Nonprofit Filmmaking is the next wave!
