Guardian Angel Program
I started a business in Hollywood in the 70's selling film stock to
people like Cassavetes and Coreman. My capital was a $20.00 bill
from the grocery money and I grew that $20.00 into a 9 million dollar
a year company and sold my NYC, Chicago and LA offices to Edgewise
Media in the spring of 2001.

During the time I owned Studio Film & Tape I produced over 100
HeathStyles Shows which were sold to Oasis Cable and 30 Filmmaker
shows, now in the National Archives. I created the Roy W. Dean
film grants in 1992 in honor of my father and have given over
2 million dollars in donations since then and worked with
thousands of filmmakers in consultations and seminars.

I have executive produced Women Behind the Camera, BAM 6.6,
American Chain Gang and Step Away From the Stone and I have
an Associate Producer credit on many films.

Each year I review close to 500 films and trailers from my film
grants and filmmakers who hire me. Making films is a long process,
from research through release can take years. Many times filmmakers get
discouraged or stalled and never complete the film or they finish it and then can't
get it released.

It's sad but true that many films are never seen. Why? Many
reasons but one main problem is finances. Most filmmakers need to
support themselves while they make their films; they can't quit
their day jobs and do the writing, hiring, filming and raise the money for
the film. They have to make time around their work and family to
create the film.

This can be done with the filmmaker's total dedication. And it can be
much easier when you work with someone on a weekly basis. You outline
what you want to achieve each week and then discuss the achievements
or problems, solve them and keep moving forward through
each step of the process.
In today's world you need to distribute your film while you
are making it. Understanding how to find your niche markets and
creating partners for your doc and audiences for your feature's
release are just as important as making the film and you need to
do these together.

If you are interested in applying for the Angle Program you should
contact me via email and set up a time to discuss your film and
your goals. I will review your materials and give you a free 30
minute consultation. Then we can decide if I can help you create your film.

I keep my price low. We talk once a week for at least 45 minutes and
during the week we communicate when you are under a deadline. My
fee for the full month is that of a normal consultation in this
industry, $300.00. Payments are made to From the Heart and are
tax deductible. Email if you are interested,
Caroleedean@att.net or call 805 984 0098 to speak to Carole Dean

I met Carole Dean about a year ago with nothing more than my notes, my passion and my profound desire to do my first Documentary. I remember she encouraged me and guided me through every single step in order to accomplish my project. Every time someone asks me how are you doing this? I always respond: It is not just me I have a wonderful Angel who is by my side at all times, guiding me, supporting me and pushing me no matter what happens she is always helping me to keep my focus on things that really matter. I'm so grateful I found her and now we are working together, like she said: " is all about the journey". Carole has a tremendous wisdom, faith in you and persistence to keep you going. Be prepared because she will take you on a wonderful journey. -Natalia Berry, filmmaker

I found Carole' to truly be the guardian angel for my film. Her knowledge has been the difference in getting this film made. By changing areas in the script from her suggestions has made all the difference to the clarity and flow of the story. D'Nell Bingham

If you are looking for someone who will guide you through the
experience of filmmaking she is the right choice. She has been as
excited about the process and I have been and taking an interest
in my goals and dreams for my life and helping them to come
true.-Karen McCann
