Roy W. Dean Film Grant Donors

 


 
Central to Roy W. Dean Grant programs support to filmmakers is the participation of our donors and sponsors.  We’ve estimated that over $2,000,000 have been awarded in resources and services since Roy Dean started engaging independent filmmakers who walked in to Studio Film & Tape where it all began.These companies and individuals generously contribute their time and resources for independent filmmakers for the Roy W. Dean Grant programs. From the Heart Productions began in 1993 with Otto Nemenz, Raleigh Studios, Howard Wexler, Alan Audio Works and many other donors who are still with us.The donors found our grants give them exposure to emerging filmmakers.  These filmmakers greatly appreciate companies who donate goods and services for their films.  They use our donor list as the beginning of a career long production bible for identifying excellent service providers for their projects.If you would like to be a donor, please email caroleleedean@gmail.com for full information. You will find that your generosity will be returned ten fold.
