What you'll learn in this film production class:Eighty-five percent of all feature films are either produced or directed by the screenwriter. This intensive filmmaking course, literally a “Two-Day Film School,” teaches the writer how to take his or her script and make it into an independent feature film that can win awards at festivals and secure profitable distribution deals.
This comprehensive, rapid-fire weekend will teach you how to:
- Produce, Budget and Schedule Your Screenplay
- Direct, Shoot and Edit Your Movie
- Make the Most of Festivals, Awards and Agents
- Finance, Distribute and Sell
Produce & Direct - Shoot Your Film:
The first day of the workshop teaches you—the writer—a foolproof step-by-step process for making your script into an independent feature film with budgets that range from $5,000 to $5,000,000.
Bonus: Digital Filmmaking A-Z.
Finance & Distribute - Sell Your Film:
The second day covers a proven method to market, sell and distribute your film around the world and garner global revenues from the theatrical, video, cable, music and broadcasting industries.
Bonus: Publicity & Festival Awards
Attendees receive a Producer’s Diploma and Filmmaker’s Certificate.
