“Julia’s unblocking your creativity class was amazing. I loved the Kundalini yoga exercises, particularly your introduction to a conscious breathing practice. I felt very much connected during your class, thanks to your flow, presence and energy. I noticed a large difference in my energy level after as I felt energized, focused and got more than average work done. Thank you!”Agnes DelfosseStudent
“I wasn’t sure exactly what this class was when I signed up but knew I needed to get rid of a writers’ block moment. This class was fantastic, suddenly it all made sense and I was buzzing and excited to get back to some writing after it. And Julia is one superb teacher. The rest of my day and the following one, I felt really inspired, got straight back into my writing and was delighted with the results. I can’t wait for the next class and plan to take these regularly. I highly recommend it.”Mickey WynneMusician
“Julia’s producing course was a terrific resource in terms of understanding the component parts of how a film actually gets made. Whilst I’m at the script and pitch stage, the course gave me the reassurance to move forwards with confidence and better understand how to pitch effectively, anticipating needs beforehand. It’s an absolute must for filmmakers whatever your discipline.”Richard Shelton - Producing CourseProducer, Director
“It was worth carving out time of my busy schedule to watch and attend Julia’s producing class. She deep dives into what it takes to produce an independent film successfully.
I appreciated the detailed and comprehensive information and positive outlook she gave us. I highly recommend taking this class if you are producer or in the industry wanting to know what it takes to produce quality independent films.”Ingrid Moss - Producing CourseProducer, Writer, Actor
“Prior to attending Julia’s producing course, I found myself with many questions regarding the producing aspect to filmmaking, however after completing the course I found many of those producing questions answered in ways that will benefit my future production projects moving forward.
Thanks to Julia and her insightful team of associates I not only learned a great deal about producing, but was able to ask a number of detailed oriented questions regarding the procedures necessary to properly produce a film. Keeping that in mind I would recommend Julia’s class to anyone looking to become more familiar with producing, or for those looking to brush up their knowledge on the subject.”Dennis Chekenian - Producing CourseStudent
“One of the best things about this class was that Julia and Jason are active working professionals, with current up to date info on how to fund films and TV projects. I got a really good overview of both market places: what types of projects are most viable and what type of presentation materials are needed to command attention and garner enthusiasm. This course really helped me to put my project slate together so I could go out and not only attract investors, but also build the best project team. I highly recommend it for anyone serious about getting their ventures into production.”Vincent Spano - Film and TV Financing CourseActor, Writer, Director, Producer
“Thanks to doing this course, I got my film made and am now having a very successful festival run! Julia is amazing: she has a wealth of development and production experience across the world, and she explains everything very clearly. If you take this class, it will empower you with the skills and knowledge needed to make your film. Highly recommend!”Sean Fredericks - Film and TV Financing CourseDirector, Producer, Writer
“I learned so much from the Film Financing Class! Things that none of my friends are learning after years in film school. One can learn how to write a script and film a scene, but if one wants to have a film actually financed how do you accomplish that? I learned the answers from this class and I highly recommend that any indie producer learn from Julia and Jason. They are very accessible, engaging, helpful, and fun to learn from. I've even watched the classes again at home and learned something new every time I watch. It's so important to have a good pitch and business plan, and this class teaches you how to do that.”Elizabeth Aseltine - Film and TV Financing CourseProducer
“This was one of the best film classes I have taken, the penny finally dropped as to what I need to focus on in a screenplay. I had done a lot of other classes in screenwriting, but after doing this one, how to structure, build tension and create create character really became clear to me. I had often got feedback to avoid too much expositio, The visual examples also made it finally sink in what that meant and how to tell a story visually.”Issac Odeniran - Classics CourseStudent
“Julia provides a thorough, transparent, no-nonsense approach to the process of casting star actors to film projects. From management to budget, professional protocol, and industry requirements, you get a clearer understanding and picture from a top film producer who has worked with the best. Highly recommend it!”Jay Finocchiaro - Casting CourseFilmmaker
“Julia is really friendly and approachable, and made the class feel laid-back and informal. She has a wealth of knowledge and great tips on how to stretch your budget and save money. I met some good contacts through her mixers! Absolutely recommended!”Lyndon Booth - Micro-budget Filmmaking CourseFilmmaker
“As a writer, choosing Julia Verdin to work on helping me improve my screenplay is the best investment I’ve ever made.
She has guided me to find the authentic emotional core of my story and given me the dramatic tools to show it visually on screen.
Her knowledge, experience and wisdom are simply gold.”Tom Magill - Script Coaching ServicesScreenwriter
“Julia Verdin is an inspiration. Her micro-budget filmmaking class helped me advanced my project to a place that I wasn't sure I could solidly achieve at the beginning. I am now confidently moving forward with my project and I feel I now have a solid foundation with which to build from in order to make my film a success.”Bradley Van Rooi - Micro-budget Filmmaking CourseStudent
“Julia Verdin's film classes gave me an understanding of how to finance and get a film made and that you don’t have to wait for someone else to make it happen. I am now producing and starring in my own film - highly recommend.”Luke Dejahang - Film and TV Financing CourseStudent
