The Sizzle Reel Series is a 4-class series aimed to equip potential filmmakers with the insight on how to turn their ideas into a successful sizzle reel. Attendees will learn everything from the different kinds of sizzle reels to how to make and promote them. The cool thing is, this is not simply just a class on Sizzle Reels--this is also a shot to have your ideas produced. All3Media will work with attendees to select a commercially viable concept from the ideas developed during the workshop. The sizzle reel will be financed and produced by All3Media for presentation to a broadcast or cable network, Internet streaming provider, or other media buyer.

This is a great opportunity to turn your ideas into a reality, and have that reality pitched to big networks. This is something you really don’t want to pass up!

James Brooke, an Executive Producer with the Los Angeles based production studio, All3Media America, will conduct the workshop. Other All3Media executives will participate, including those involved with development and programming, casting, production, and post-production.

All3Media America is the Los Angeles-based production studio for All3Media, a global production and distribution group of companies headquartered in the UK.
