Girl Director Academy online training platform with Lifetime Access:
Girl Director Academy is the name of our online training platform. It contains 12 sub-courses, each with multiple modules covering all areas of video production, marketing, branding, messaging, mindset, outsourcing and other training relevant to growing your business with video. GDA membership also includes bonus access to other Standalone Training Programs that are otherwise sold separately on the Girl Director Academy site. All content is delivered via prescriptive video tutorials, worksheets and templates going from the big picture, right down to the technical details.
All content can be accessed at any time and consumed methodically, as prescribed, or through jumping around to different sections as desired. (i.e. There is no drip-feed delivery of the content.) There is also a Search function available.
As part of your Q&As and group support (and mentoring where relevant), your coach will often guide you to sections of the program to watch.
What This Program Does Not Cover:
- It is not a life coaching or counselling program. Any group training is focused on supporting, facilitating and encouraging the participants to implement the training whilst answering questions relevant to the course content and the participants’ goals.
- It is not an in-depth training course in how to use any particular software programs, although relevant elements of particular programs will be taught during the program. For in-depth training in such programs, it is recommended that the participants consult the vendor of such software or other training schools that specialise in detailed software courses.
- This program does not cover filming, directing or scripting for dramatic films, TV shows or on-line drama.
- This is not, and we do not promote, any kind of ‘get rich quick’ scheme.
Who Can Participate In This Program:
Participation is restricted to participants who have paid through an agreed payment arrangement for the program. This does not include anyone else, such as business partners, associates, employees, life partners or families of the participant unless agreed to in writing with Girl Director.
When the participant pays for the program they will be given a membership to the Girl Director Academy training website for lifetime access. It is a condition that only the participant may use this logon, unless others are approved in writing by Girl Director.
Payments are to be made upfront or on a limited set of monthly payments via Credit Card or PayPal. Payments are managed automatically at purchase of this program. Invoices are automatically sent to purchasers after payment is processed.
If the participant is on a monthly payment schedule and defaults on that payment schedule, they will be given a grace period of 7 days to make good on the payment. If, however, they do not bring the payment back into line within that time, their subscription to the program will be put on hold and their access to the online program revoked until payment is made and brought up-to-date and out of arrears. The participant will no longer be eligible for mentoring or Facebook Group access until payments are restarted. Once all payments are completed, the client has lifetime access to the program they have purchased, unless otherwise specified under the product description.
Breaks During Payment Schedules:
We do not recommend that the participant takes breaks during the start of their membership and all automated payments will continue to charge regardless. We do, however, understand that significant unforeseen circumstances can cause participants to need to take a break from payments. If this happens to you it is important that you communicate this with us so we can agree on an appropriate course of action. Any such breaks must be confirmed in writing.
Please note that such circumstances mentioned above are different to taking time out for holidays, as your business and marketing will still be running through that period, and so too will the services that Girl Director provides to the participant in the program and Facebook Group.
If the participant defaults on any payment schedule there will be no refunds given according to the No Refunds Policy outlined at the top of this document.
Keeping In Communication:
Whatever is happening for you, it is essential that you communicate with us so we can support you in the most appropriate way. Any agreements outside of these conditions will only be valid if Girl Director has put them in writing to the participant via email.
