This book is full of useful info. If you get a chance to take one of her weekend classes, you won't be disappointed.

I followed the advice that is in this book and was able to create a trailer that helped my team raise $17,500 on Kickstarter. We promoted the Kickstarter campaign through searching out and contacting hundreds of blogs in our subject area and creating a huge email list of our own friends, families, and aquantainces. We had multiple bloggers agree to allow our main character to guest post on their site and we ended up on a few news sites. When the people we were promoting to came to our Kickstarter landing page, following Fernanda's advice allowed us to present a professional trailer to them. I literally followed the structural advice she gives word for word. All I can say is, it worked and created a powerful trailer that made people want to support us. She also replied to my emails when I sent her information about our trailer. You can view our trailer here if you're interested.

This is one of the most compassionate and insightful books for those who are possessed by the subject of their doc but don't know how to structure it or express that structure to others. It asks the right questions and takes the filmmaker on an inner journey to uncover their working style and avoid the pitfalls of procrastination. Not the technical book the name would suggest. A very organic, but methodical, process of self-discovery is what Rossi provokes, in order to make you understand just what it is you want your film to express to the audience--and to potential funders.

What do filmmakers want? In addition to winning an Academy Award for Best Documentary, we went sound advice on how to navigate some of the mysteries of filmmaking - like how to create the perfect documentary fundraising trailer. What is the ideal structure? What language do we use to express our story so it's emotional and logical? How do we stay committed to our vision but open to constructive criticism? Rossi offers all that and much more. She is equal parts story expert, therapist, and friend, and every filmmaker needs to have this book on his/her shelf.

This book is valuable for a first time filmmaker or a seasoned vet. I have no doubt that Rossi's insightful techniques were key to my films getting funded. Look no further for a documentary fundraising trailer resource. Simply said, Rossi is a story structure genius.

While I'm sure the author had good intentions, I was disappointed in this book. It had only a couple of pages on the topic of structuring an effective fundraising trailer. The rest of the book contained advice for the budding filmmaker about organization, discipline, hurdles, etc. I was tempted to ask for my money back.
