Filmmaking Workshop with Alex Thompson
Add to Calendar4:00 pm – 7:00 pm
“But That’s Impossible…”--Indie Filmmaking Today Using real-world examples and anecdotes, students will take a 3-hour crash course from award-winning filmmaker/alum Alex Thompson ('10) in becoming an indie filmmaker today. Drawing from the preproduction, production and post-production files of dozens of film projects, this workshop will introduce an unprecedented look behind the veil at what really makes an indie film tick. The workshop will demonstrate the relative ease of beginning and the great white whale of “finishing” an independent film. Students will leave this class with numerous templates and ideas for beginning (or continuing) their own indie adventures.
