Introduction to all producers do, from development to distribution. Sign on for this 3 hour workshop that navigates students through introductory-level producing.
Paying someone to breakdown your script elements properly can be very expensive. If you want to be a good producer, assistant director, or production manager, it all starts with understanding this process.
Thanks to the increased affordability of editing software and a wide array of online tutorials, digital editing is more accessible than ever before. However, proficiency with Adobe Premiere, Avid Media Composer, or Final Cut Pro is not what distinguishes a professional edit from an amateur one.
Proper development can make or break your chances of raising funds, finding a recognizable cast, getting the best crew and equipment necessary, and finding distribution. Proper development is crucial to success.
Attendees from the Breaking Down a Script class will take their breakdowns and learn to schedule efficiently, as well as effectively. You’ll learn what to look for and how to create a solid schedule from which to budget.
This two day, bootcamp-style Production Assistant workshop is perfect for those just starting their career in the industry as well as those looking to advance their knowledge of what it takes to succeed as an office or on-set production assistant working on commercials, industrials, music videos, independent films, television series and studio features.
This class will walk you through the basic content necessary to create a proper plan for your film from team bios and your dream cast to your top sheet budget and distribution plan.
Budgeting isn’t a formula. Each project is different, but some basics do apply. You start with a complete breakdown and a rough schedule. Without doing that work, you can’t properly estimate the cost of your production.
