You’re interested in being a filmmaker, but you’re not sure where to start.

During this workshop, we’ll take a brief look at independent film history, the modern indie film climate, discuss the various crew positions that are crucial to most film productions, and some of the very preliminary steps toward turning your ideas into potential film projects. We will also discuss some local organizations and resources that may be helpful to you as a new filmmaker.

This workshop is designed to help attendees decide which area of filmmaking they are most interested in and suited for. It will also help them start to think of their story ideas in a more cinematic way, and feeds really well into the other workshops that are available at the Artist Foundry.
