Finding Your Voice And Your Audience w/ Lowell Dean

October 19, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

$125 – $250
Finding Your Voice… And Your Audience // A feature film directing workshop with Lowell Dean

*Only a few spots available!*

Writer & Director Lowell Dean will discuss the challenges and rewards of making independent genre films in Canada. Lowell will present a case study of the WolfCop films and tackle far ranging topics such as coming up with the “right” idea, how to finance your project, the rigours of low budget production and what happens when you finally release your feature film into the wild. Lowell will also focus specifically on the director’s perspective; how to interpret a script, how to prepare for a shoot day, and some important lessons he learned in post-production.

CineVic Members $125
Non-Members $250
