The first segment of the IFP Filmmaker Labs were very fun and exciting this year. A great group of docs and narrative.
Next week I will be in the UK. First doing a one day TOTBO workshop at the Edinburgh Film Festival on June 22nd then I’ll be doing a Keynote for Short Sighted presented by BAFTA and Shooting People on the 23rd. I’ll also be doing one on one consultations with films on the 23rd through Creative Scotland.
Next I’m doing a 2 day workshop at the London Film School June 25th, 26th, so if you are in London I hope to see you then. For this workshop we have the some excellent special guests lined up: Terry Stevens from Dogwoof, Chris Jones, filmmaker and author of the Guerilla Filmmaker’s Handbook Series and via skype we’ll have Sheri Candler, filmmaker Gregory Bayne giving tips for a successful crowdfunding campaign and Peter Gerard of the exciting new DIY distribution tool Distrify.
And some other previews of upcoming releases:
Dogwoof will be releasing the multi language PAL version of Bomb It July 25th.
In September, The Film Collaborative, Sheri Candler and I will be releasing Selling Your Film Without Selling Your Soul Presented by PreScreen – Case Studies in Hybrid, DIY and P2P Independent Distribution. This is a series of case studies that dives deep into independent film distribution. There will be much more information on this in the coming months – if you would like to know more – check out (and like) the Facebook page for the book. We’ll be launching at the IFP Week in NYC where I will also be for part 3 of the IFP Filmmaker Labs.
