One of my critical roles as a producer is to procure funds for motion picture projects. Since 2007, I have written several successful grant proposals to receive development and production funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities, Ford Foundation, PBS, and other major grant making organizations.
A selection of grant proposals is posted below.
Ronnie & The Others (2013-14)
Fundraising proposal for a multi-platform educational outreach project that includes a TV series, web site, community forums, and traveling exhibit.
Hate Crimes in the Heartland (2012-2014)
Fundraising proposal to the National Endowment for the Humanities for a feature length documentary that explores the history of race-related crimes in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Nation of Exiles (2009-10)
Research and funding proposal to support the production of a documentary film that examines the roots of Iran’s “Green Movement” and the mass protests that took place during the summer of 2009.
