This excellent workshop takes great ideas in feature films, television (1 hour dramas, unscripted films and sitcoms) and shows you how to actually make them happen. It is not for beginners or the faint of heart. You pitch your project to amazing industry leaders and get feedback. You are mentored by amazing professionals — folks who are passionate about bringing diverse folks into the business.
Here’s how the Guild describes it:
A veritable “crash course” in producing, giving participants a comprehensive overview of the essential skills of the producing trade through a series of seminars and master classes with some of the top professionals working in film and television today, supported by one-on-one mentoring work with a member of the Producers Guild. Topics to be
addressed include: writing, pitching, budgeting and scheduling, fundraising, marketing, and new media opportunities.
Don’t be thrown by it being free. You’ll work harder than you did for your B.A. And it’s diverse in the best sense, any one of any background who has a project with diverse elements is welcome to apply.
