With a Masters Degree in Cinematography, Mark jumped into mainstream entertainment right away, forming a partnership with recording artist John Denver. Together, they produced Denver’s highly-rated TV Specials with guest stars like Steve Martin, Itzhak Perlman, Beverly Sills, and Olivia Newton-John. Mark then moved into feature motion pictures, writing, producing and directing "Man Outside" starring Robert Logan and Kathleen Quinlan, which became an Official Selection at major film festivals. After developing producing and directing documentary projects for King World Direct, (earning the company $57 million in video sales), Mark joined forces with National Geographic Television, writing, producing and directing multiple features which earned five Emmy Award Nominations and two Emmy wins as Best Director.

What they're saying about the amazing "Money for Your Movie: Guaranteed" Video Course

Filmmakers and industry leaders all agree...this course solves the problem of financing your film.

You probably have some questions are some answers.

  • How long is the whole course?

    The total "running time" of the entire course is approximately 2 1/2 hours. But it's all broken down into 20 individual 6-10 minute sessions for ease of viewing. Mark recommends watching one or two of the lessons, taking careful notes, then reviewing each session before moving on. There is a lot of information in each session, and you don't want to skip over anything.

  • Can I "binge watch" the whole course in one sitting?

    Yes, you can watch the course in as many sittings as you like. We recommend breaking it all up over several sessions, because you'll want to take notes and review the content of each session. This is about LEARNING and being able to EXECUTE what you've learned!

  • Do you offer any student discounts?

    This video course is the same material that Mark has taught to filmmakers in full-day in-person seminars at a cost of $1,200 per person. The pricing you see here is already serious discount...and you can choose to break your enrollment fee up into two equal payments.

  • Can I pay for the course in payments?

    Yes. We understand that it can be difficult to invest the total cost of the course all at once, so you can break the cost into two equal payments.

  • If I enroll in the course, will Mark Stouffer help me find the financing for my film?

    Mark is busy making his own films and rarely gets involved in the production efforts of others. But if you have a complete package and more than half your funding committed, he or another producer on his team can provide online virtual consultation at an hourly rate. Contact Mark's team directly at

  • How can you "guarantee" that taking this course will help me raise the money for my production?

    Mark can guarantee your success if you carefully follow the step-by-step guidelines he teaches in this course...because he uses this same system today and has raised nearly $20,000,000 for his own movies with it. The methods used by Mark support the principle that "failure is not an option."

  • If I take the course and still have trouble finding the financing for my movie, can I get a refund?

    No. There are no refunds once the course has been ordered. That's because Mark has no way of knowing whether or not a student actually follows the program as presented. If a student faces unusual difficulties in following the step-by-step process Mark teaches in this video course, we recommend that the student reach out and inquire about virtual consultation availability.

  • Can I have a meeting in person with Mark Stouffer to discuss my project?

    Mark is always busy with multiple film projects and doesn't regularly meet with filmmakers or provide consultation services. But if you reach out to his team with specific issues, they may respond via email; your success as a filmmaker is Mark's goal.

Mark Stouffer is the man you call when you need to finance a movie.

He's raised millions for his own films...and now his video course shows you EXACTLY HOW to find the money you need to produce YOUR movies.

Raising the money to make your movie is no longer the impossible task it once was. You only need to find those individuals with money they're willing to risk...and than convince them that your film has a reasonable chance of returning their investment plus some profit. MARK STOUFFER has raised the financing to produce nearly a dozen movies (and won Emmys and DGA Awards nominations in the process)...and he's still doing it today. Here, for the first time in 20 fast-paced video lessons, Mark teaches you everything you need to know--and how to use you new knowledge--to make YOUR MOVIE.

Let's get your movie MADE.

We'll stay in touch with insights, strategies, and tips for raising the money for your movie!
