I first interacted with FTH when I submitted for their film production grant last year. Although, my proposal didn't end up working out Carole and her team were more than accommodating. They are seasoned, professional and generous.

I have done countless hours of researching From The Heart Productions and aside from their own website tooting their own horn, or a directory that lists non-profits without doing any real background investigating on them, I can't find not one lick of credible information on this company. I am however coming up with red flag after red flag. I am writing this to advise other filmmakers seeking fiscal support that this company can not be verified as legit, not with the Better Business Bureau, not with any filmmakers that I've asked, and I've asked hundreds, including communities of filmmakers. Not one lick of credible evidence. I am calling into question any website directory that lists them as a "great nonprofit" - how much research have you done on this outfit? I bet fist over dollar it's a scam. Who is Carole Dean? Why do none of the credible and established producers and directors I know have a clue who she is? All this company can do for you is giving you tips on how to crowd fund. And anyone who tells you to crowd fund for your film is telling to you act like a bum and beg your friends & family for their pennies. Scam! RED FLAG SCAM!
