Dear Future Producer, was written for artists who are eager to expand their creative portfolio and begin professionally producing their own content. This DIY handbook teaches you how to be your own producer in an industry that embraces the power of self creation and promotion. Even if you have minimal producing experience, a limited budget, and few connections, this book will give you hands on tools to write your own success story. It will empower you to say “YASSS” to your dreams and help you turn any creative concept into a fully realized, professionally produced project. This book shines a light on the many aspects of what it means to be a ”producer.” It includes topics such as fundraising, making industry connections, obtaining fiscal sponsorships, drafting emails for food donations, insight on film festivals, securing locations, equipment rentals and so much more. Most importantly, it focuses on the power of visualizing your dreams. The writers, Maggie Stiggers and Spiro Marcos, both started as actors and have now added award winning producers to their resumes. They challenge you to dig deep, never give up on yourself, and resist comparing your journey to someone else’s. Think of them as your two new best friends along for the ride, encouraging you every step of the way with a laugh and a smile:)  Maggie Stiggers and Spiro Marcos are the co-executive producers and co-founders of NikoFrank Productions, a non profit production company based in New York City. They’ve released a multitude of comedic sketches, short films, music videos, and host an acclaimed podcast, “The Cool Kids Table.” Their mission has always been to create a platform celebrating diversity, inclusion, and underrepresented artists.
