What They Are Saying About Raindance

"The courses are packed with very valuable information with many options on where and how money can be raised. The information was real, realistic and supported by a lot of true life examples Elliot was able to share with us. The course highlighted the complexities of raising finance in this competitive industry, but it also gave encouragement as there are many avenues for first time filmmakers like myself."
Neil O'Neil

"My entry into the filmmaking industry began with an idea developed together with writer/producer/editor Bruce Pirrie to write a screenplay adaptation of the book I had written called My Camino. Since I had virtually no experience in this arena, I took the Lo To No Budget workshop with Elliot Grove in Toronto. Within a period of two 2 days I had an overview of the industry, met other filmmakers and learned some valuable skills to start making a film. As it turned out, I produced two short films and directed a feature length documentary. The screenplay option for My Camino was sold to an Oscar nominated producer and co-wrote the script with Bruce. I highly recommend Raindance workshops and events."
Sue Kenney, screenwriter/producer

"Raindance held a special seminar on shooting low budget films which I attended October of 2006 in Toronto.  It was fantastic and filled with a ton of very useful insight and motivation.  I definitely recommend up-and-coming independent filmmakers to check out Raindance's events."
