Film Independent Lab Producers Deadline Approaching

Discussion in 'Professional Video Production' started by vanillachiller, Jul 6, 2006.


    Film Independent is now accepting submissions for its annual Producers
    Lab that will take place in Los Angeles during October and November
    2006. The deadline for submissions is August 14, 2006 (postmarked).

    Sponsored by Technicolor, Film Independent's Producers Lab is an
    intensive seven-week program designed to help filmmakers develop skills
    as creative independent producers. Lab fellows develop a strategy and
    formal action plan for bringing their projects to fruition -including a
    budget, schedule, and business plan. Fellows have one-on-one meetings
    with established producers, directors, and other industry professionals
    who act as advisors to them on their specific projects.

    A maximum of ten producers are accepted into the program each year.
    Some projects that have gone through the Labs are the following: So
    Yong Kim's Sundance-winning film, In Between Days; Jessica Sanders'
    After Innocence, short listed for the Academy Awards' documentary
    category; Andrea Millers' Dark Matter, currently in production with Val
    Kilmer and Meryl Streep; Scott Prendergast's Kabluey, currently in
    production with Lisa Kudrow; Dana Jackson's Park starring Billy
    Baldwin; Mora Stephens and Joel Stephens' Conventioneers, winner of an
    Independent Spirit Award; Ted Kroeber's American Gun recently released
    by IFC Films.

    Past instructors include Effie Brown (In the Cut), Eric D'arbeloff
    (Lovely and Amazing), Alison Dickey (Piggie), Matthew Greenfield (The
    Good Girl), Jasmine Kosovic (D.E.B.S.), and Shelby Stone (Lackawanna
    Blues). Past guest speakers include Craig Emanuel, Debra Grieco,
    Midge Sanford, Peggy Rajski, Laurie Parker, Ron Yerxa, among others.
