Who says there’s no such thing as a free lunch?
Locals will have the chance to attend a filmmaking masterclass presented by International Emmy® Award winning producer Marcus Gillezeau [Jillezo] from 11am till 4pm on Sunday the 8th of March. The class, which is funded by the Patton Village Community & Business Association in conjunction with free venu-hire from Robinson College, is entirely free for a limited number of students and even includes lunch. But alas, the food is not free: participants will need to come along prepared to work taking notes and learning new skills to take their flimmaking to the next level. There are also a strictly limited number of oportunities to present a project for consideration to be work-shopped with the group on the day (see project incubator blew).
The day is aimed at both aspiring and more established filmmakers, videographers and documentary makers. The masterclass will cover a range of topics including how to develop a project, identifying your audience, sourcing finance, digital distribution, marketing and pitching. Case studies of the AACTA winning feature documentary STORM SURFERS 3D, low budget feature film NERVE and short films will be presented.
Accelerated Project Incubator:
Participants also have the chance to submit a project idea that will be workshopped with aim of developing a plan for getting it funded, made and distributed.
Submissions should be maximum one page and include: short synopsis, genre, duration/length, basic team bio.
Four projects will be chosen for the Incubator section of the masterclass.
