Review for From the Heart Productions Inc, Oxnard, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

All film fiscal sponsor non-profits are not created equally! I learned this through trial and error. When the extremely in-experienced staff at another film fiscal sponsor said they'd never heard of our Oscar-nominated, Emmy-winning DP or the blockbuster films he had shot, I decided it was time to move to a more expert organization. My producer introduced me to From The Heart Productions, who were very capable of assessing a proposal, story, budget and roster of experienced personnel. Most importantly, From The Heart recognizes the merit of a project, and the very humbling responsibility that a filmmaker has in presenting a life-changing documentary. The name of this non-profit says it all!

Carole Dean had decades of professional experience in the film industry herself, and wanting to give back, she created From The Heart. She and her team at FTH Productions, Greater Los Angeles, have now had decades of non-profit experience. The depth of their understanding, extensive professional connections to industry personnel and services, and most importantly, an ability to problem solve and think 'outside the box', are assets that filmmakers and donors appreciate and recognize. I felt I had entered an oasis; a community of filmmakers whose vision and talents and their mission to make this world a better place, was valued, nurtured, and supported. We are a giant step closer to fulfilling our mission, thanks to Carole Dean and her team at From The Heart Productions. Thank you!
