Prep & Production Workflow w/ Trevor Cunningham

November 6, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

This workshop is presented as part of The Incubators program. Click here for more info on the other workshops in this series >>

When someone mentions a film unit, most people think of location shooting. But, in fact, most Film and TV projects are made in a series of predictable phases, of which shooting is only one.

In each phase of a film’s production a group of people collaborate to form a miniature work organization which has characteristic problems of motivation, leadership, and structure. Each phase is a temporary system, limited in duration and membership, in which people come together, interact, create something, and then disband. And in each phase, the filmmaker has to stimulate and manage different kinds of creative work under intense budget and time pressures. The filmmaker’s principal job is managing the creative process.

In this workshop we will explore workflow from Prep to Production, with emphasis on Pre-Production in order for your project to reduce the risk and pitfalls that can plague a project.

10am – 4pm Pacific Time
