CALLING ALL INDEPENDENT ARTISTS! HANDS UP IF YOU'RE AT A CROSS ROAD OF YOUR CAREER AND READY TO STEP UP TO THE NEXT LEVEL BUT UNSURE HOW?

Imagine if there was a program that could give you all the insider top industry tips and tricks on producing, marketing and pitching your show like a pro.

That would be AWESOME but does something like that exist?

IT DOES NOW AS WE HAVE TALKED AND LISTENED TO LOTS OF ARTISTS (JUST LIKE YOU) AND CREATED A PROGRAM THAT GIVES YOU ALL OF THAT AND SO MUCH MORE!

milkeabcHERE’S THE STORY:

Hi, I’m Laura Milke Garner and I have been working as a Producer for over 18 years in the Performing Arts and Festivals around Australia. I have produced shows for Sydney Opera House, Arts Centre Melbourne, Brisbane Festival, Brisbane Power House, Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival, City of Melbourne, Moosehead Awards, Melbourne International Arts Festival, Melbourne Fringe Festival and Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

I work with lots of artists across comedy, theatre, cabaret and circus and the questions I get asked ALL the time are:

“What steps do I need to take my show to the next level?”

“How do I get more people to come and see my show?”

“How long can I survive doing what I’m doing?”

Trust me I get it, there were no courses or programs when I first started and like so many others I made it up as I went along.  I made mistakes, I learnt on the job from show to show how to do it better, bigger but more importantly…smarter.   Now, 18 years down the track and over 150 different productions, events and festivals under my belt I have learned a thing or two and this got me thinking…

Imagine if there was a program that could teach you how to have more CLARITY & DIRECTION in your artistic career, a better understanding of how to get to that next stage and insider knowledge of how to produce your show like a pro.

Seriously…how friggin’ good would that be?!!

Do you ever wish you had more time, more confidence and connections to get your work out there?  Do you feel like you are missing opportunities by simply not knowing which road to take?

Have you done a show recently and thought; “it’s just not worth it” or “I feel like I’m going around in circles and not getting anywhere”? You attempt to get all the producing and publicity components of your show under control but everything just snowballs and you end up stressed, exhausted and frustrated and quite frankly, just want to give up.

YIKES!

Well, good news my friend. Finally, a solution is here…introducing:

abc-logos-02NEXT COURSE STARTS
MONDAY 10 JULY 2017
ENROLMENTS ARE NOW OPEN

Created by Melbourne Producer Laura Milke Garner (MILKE).  In talking with lots of artists, I have listened and created this unique program for Comedians, Artists & Performers EXACTLY like you.

I understand how difficult it can be without a full-time Producer or Manager in your corner, it can be really hard to know where to go, what to do or even who to ask. I get it.  This is exactly what this program is designed to do, fill that gap and create a genuine helping hand with someone who has been there and done that.

So what’s it all about – let me give you a sneak peak!

EXCLUSIVE MEMBERSHIP SITE

The Artist Bootcamp is an online course that includes a membership website with all the resources you need to take you to the next level and so much more. The program is designed in 4 weekly modules.  Each module contains specially designed audio content, tips and resources for you use and put into practice immediately.  Each module also contains amazing templates created especially for this program to assist you in producing and pitching your show and developing your artistic career. Plus you have access to additional industry resources and references only found exclusively on the site.

LIVE GROUP Q&A SESSIONS

In addition to the weekly modules, you’ll get plenty of live support from me, we get to have a chat weekly…no, really! Each THURSDAY evenings as part of the program there is a LIVE Q&A via online video conference. (check in the FAQ section for dates and times) This is where you can meet and see everyone in the group, dive into your most burning questions about that week’s module and have invaluable industry discussions.  It’s a wonderful way of creating a network of other like-minded artists from around the country.

LIFETIME ACCESS TO A SUPPORTIVE ARTIST NETWORK

You will get a lifetime access to the closed Artist Bootcamp Facebook Group to keep the conversation going and join all the incredible like-minded artists already in this active, fun and very supportive community. You’ll use this space to brainstorm, ask questions, share ideas and insights.

Can you teach me how to make lots of money on my shows?

Unfortunately there is no Golden Ticket.   No producer has a foolproof way of ensuring a show makes money every time. However, what we can do is show you ways in which you can put strategies into place to assist you in building your shows.

I can't join this round but I want to know about the next round?

No worries at all.  We would LOVE to have you in the Bootcamp but realise the timing might not be right for you at the moment.  If you want us to email you when the next round is on offer just email info@milke.com.au and we will put you on the waiting list.  Yah!

I have more questions, who should I contact?

No problem, we are more than happy to answer any other questions you have about the course.  Email us at info@milke.com.au and we’ll get back to you shortly!

This all looks good but is this really worth it? I feel like I know some of this stuff, what am I really going to get out of it?

Whoa…good question so lets cut to the chase.    I can’t begin to tell you how much you are going to get from this. Sure, there is excellent content, but it’s so much more than that.   The number of resources, mentoring, contacts and guidance you get access to are priceless, and you won’t find this content anywhere else.  It has all be tailored for you as an independent artist. Being able to talk with other artists and producers who have been there done that and know that you are not alone is super important…and just quietly, you get heaps of bonus FREE training and tips and tricks all year around in our Facebook group. Remember this is an investment in YOU and your creative work.

DON'T TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT, SEE WHAT OTHER ARTISTS HAVE TO SAY!

"I love writing and performing shows. I had no idea about anything on the other side. If you're a performer of any kind who wants a better understanding of how to get as many people as possible to see your show, do this course. It's impossible to regret it".

"The Artist Bootcamp is an important tool for any independent artist. Laura shares things that will take years and money to learn through trial and error in a clear and accessible way. As an independent artist, I think it is easy to feel alone, and sharing your dreams, concerns and learning new skills with a group of other like-minded people is quite empowering"

"The Artist Bootcamp helped me discover all the things I didn't even know I wasn't doing. The course is extra helpful to artist/producers as it gives you a path to follow which ensures you are doing all the 'paper work' side of producing shows. It makes you feel like you have given your show everything you possibly could to help it get out there"

SERIOUSLY, THE ARTIST BOOTCAMP IS AN INFORMATIVE, SUPPORTIVE, NO BS PROGRAM THAT WILL GIVE YOU THE TOOLS YOU NEED TO MOVE FORWARD.
