Crystal Ship Filmmakers

Crystal Ship Filmmakers is a pilot program run by CSA.  Each month a roundtable of industry veterans join participants of the Crystal Ship to discuss in depth the business side of content creation.  From marketing to legal the agents and associates of CSA collaborate with filmmakers, giving them an open forum and support structure that allows them to join like minded professionals. The program is administrated by Sharon Parker-Frazier  who conducts intake meetings with content creators who have expressed a desire to have their original projects evaluated an/or recommendations to bring to market
