DIY YOUR FILM with Ingrid Veninger
April 12, 10-5pm, SOVA 4D room
A master class in micro-budget filmmaking (from initial concept to marketing and exhibition). This will be a hands-on workshop course exploring the art, jobs and skills of the independent filmmaker. Through exercises and case study presentation, participants will learn practical skills relevant to the production of short dramatic films: budgeting, scheduling, locations, contracts, working with actors, production and post-production planning, workflow, running the set. In particular, the workshop will stress that there is no single ‘right’ way to do anything, and will explore varied solutions, based on the variables of time, budget, vision, access, and story.
