    The Art of Manifesting - Creating Your Future with Carole Dean

    in Film

    As a housewife, Carole Dean, took a $20 bill and turned it into a $50 million a year industry when she coined the phrase “short ends” and began buying and selling film left over from production. She was instrumental in the birth of the Hollywood independent film community which took advantage of her discounted raw stock.  In 1992, Carole created the Roy W. Dean Grant which has provided filmmakers with millions of dollars in goods and services and played a crucial role in establishing the careers of our most important documentary filmmakers. 


    Carole is the author of The Art of Film Funding: Alternative Financing Concepts, now in its second edition, and The Art of Manifesting: Creating Your Future. She is the executive producer for Women Behind the Camera, BAM 6.6, American Chain Gang and Step Away From the Stone. Carole is the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award 2012 from the Women's International Film & Television Showcase (TheWIFTS), and is also a partner with Indiegogo raising over a half million dollars with filmmakers.
