Introduction to Producing

Virtual Worshop


Introduction to Producing


The Introduction to Producing Workshop will be focused on producing a film in the contemporary world and resources available for independent filmmakers. The workshop will cover how to develop, execute, and finish a movie from the perspective of a creative producer and line producer. The classes are going to be interactive, with practical exercises, alongside theory and study cases. The participants will also have the opportunity to assess the issues they encountered in their own films, and receiving feedback to help similar situations in the future.

Space is minimal, so if you’re interested in this workshop, register before the available spots fill up!
