Introduction to all producers do, from development to distribution. Sign on for this 4 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.
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.
In this weekend intensive, Naomi teaches all of the practical "how to make a micro-budget film" information that it took her two years of begging people for coffee dates to learn when she was making Imagine I'm Beautiful.
