Gain professional experience working on a micro-budget horror film intended for public distribution.
Most major filmmakers (and most film technicians) of the past 30 – 40 years began in horror films. It is a genre with a low price of entry, a ready distribution market, and financiers willing to take chances on new writers and directors. “The Face Garden” is a micro-budget horror film, which at its center is a compelling, psychological character thriller.
This unique workshop offers emerging filmmakers an opportunity to actively participate and gain hands-on experience on a professional film production. The intensive schedule is built around the making of an actual feature motion picture intended for public distribution. A line producer leads participants with a deep working understanding of both mainstream and independent production, and a writer-director of both studio and independent productions. Participants take part in all production meetings, and each student has a specific assignment on the production.
The areas of filmmaking and production that are covered in this experience include:
- Principal Photography
- Marketing and distribution strategy
