“The absolute best class you can take on how to make your own low/no budget film. Seriously.” – Signe Olynyk, Founder, Great American Pitchfest; Writer/Producer, Below Zero
No Budget Film School presents its famed two-day micro-budget filmmaking class in Los Angeles August 4 & 5, 2012. Specifically designed for no-budget filmmakers who are ready to finance their own projects, the lessons, tools, and techniques gained will maximize limited resources and minimize critical errors that can doom otherwise worthy projects. Producer Mark Stolaroff–former principal of IFC’s Next Wave Films–and guest experts teach the specific methods, models and priorities unique to micro-budget filmmaking, whether the budget is $200,000 or $2,000, in this in-depth, one-of-a-kind class. Attendees will walk away with powerful ideas that they can use immediately, saving them time and money. These cutting edge techniques can NOT be found in a book, at film school, or in other film classes.
If you’re through talking about being a filmmaker and ready to become one, this will be the most practical filmmaking course you will ever take!
Guest speakers include:
Peter Broderick (President, Paradigm Consulting). Considered one of the world’s leading authorities on alternative distribution strategy, Peter will be giving an empowering presentation on Hybrid Distribution and Crowdfunding.
Drake Doremus (Writer/Director). Drake’s micro-budget feature “Douchebag,” premiered in Competition at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. His next no-budget feature, “Like Crazy,” won the Grand Jury Prize there the following year and was released by Paramount, grossing several million dollars.
Michael Mohan, (Writer/Director). Mohan’s no-budget feature “One Too Many Mornings” premiered at Sundance in 2010 and his follow-up feature, “Save The Date,” premiered there this year, and was picked up for distribution by IFC Films.
Jacob Rosenberg (Chief Technology Officer, Bandito Brothers). A post production expert who devised Bandito’s innovative workflow for “Act Of Valor”–a studio film shot partially on inexpensive DSLR cameras–Jacob will discuss no-budget post production.
Louise Runge & Samantha Housman (Producers). Their production company OneZero produced the recent no-budget Sundance hit 28 Hotel Rooms, written and directed by Matt Ross and starring Chris Messina and Marin Ireland.
