You have a great idea.
Or a great script.
It could be a great movie, only . . . how the heck do you get it made?
And then, what do you do with it?
This intensive 8-session seminar answers those questions by providing a nuts-and-bolts “how to” on producing a film, from A to Z.
Evolution and Flow of Production focuses on producing independent features and shorts in both the narrative and documentary genres (with an overview of television production as well).
The emphasis is on how to get your project made quickly and inexpensively, but with high production values that will give your film a chance to succeed in a very competitive marketplace.
Each 3-hour class will cover one essential aspect of successful production:
- rights and licensing;
- principal photography,
You will learn, from an experienced producer the “tricks of the trade,” including how to make a movie that looks like it was made for several million for less than $600K; how to reel in top-level talent to headline a low-budget feature, and working the film festival circuit and other ways to achieve distribution and revenue.
Participants in the seminar will be provided with templates for all the essential production documents, including budgets, production schedules, contracts, legal forms, business plans, online and printed resources, and much, much more. The course is geared to aspiring producers as well as directors and writers who want to learn how to take their project from an idea to a finished product.
