How to Finance a Hollywood Film - Girl Scout Movie Makers
Girl Scouts will learn how to finance a film in Hollywood by playing the role of a film producer. During the first session, Girl Scouts will work together as a team of producers to determine the premise for a new, hit Hollywood movie. Then, Girl Scouts will learn about how producers obtain the funds to pay for the costs of movie making. As producers, Girl Scouts will consider obtaining funding from investors, through tax credits, from grants, and more. Girl Scouts will be asked to create a storyboard to share with potential funding sources. During the second session, Girl Scouts will apply for funding and price out the cost to create the movie.
