Stephen Simon Film Mentoring Program

Stephen Simon is starting a film mentoring program to help you develop and manifest your film project. Stephen brings a deep level of experience, knowledge and insight into film making and developing…He personally produced Somewhere in Time with Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour, All The Right Moves with Tom Cruise, and the Academy Award-winning What Dreams May Come with Robin Williams, Cuba Gooding, Jr. and Annabella Sciorra. In 2003, he co-founded The Spiritual Cinema Circle, a DVD distribution business that is now in its eighth year with subscribers in over ninety countries. He has also directed two films: Indigo and Conversations with God.

The content of the program includes:

• Stephen will spend twenty hours per month on your project, including two hours per week of one-on-one phone conversations. He has installed a private line in his home office exclusively for this Film Mentoring Program. Phone sessions will generally last about an hour each, unless you’re working on script notes. Those conversations might last as long as two hours.

• If you want his input on your script or a book or article that you want to adapt, he will read the material thoroughly and discuss it with you in detail. This process might also include a page by page work through of new drafts of your script.

• If you’re in pre-production, production, or post production, he can advise you all along the way. This might include cast and crew recommendations, viewing early cuts of your film, and advising you on your next steps.

On the program’s Web site, Stephen writes:

“…Are you looking to entertain people, help them feel better about themselves and their world, illuminate human experiences that can fascinate and inspire others, or perhaps help us laugh at and with ourselves? If the answer to any of those questions is “yes”, you’ve come to the right place. If you’re looking to make films that exploit rather than uplift the audience, I am not your guy…”
