A look at what it takes to get a your film off of the page and onto the screen. After your script is written, what are the next steps? Do you need a producer? Are you the producer? What about budget? Locations? Casting? Post? Where do you start? Every shoot starts somewhere and here you will participate in a mock first production meeting, covering everything from the big picture to the smallest details. Get a look at working production documents including schedules, call sheets, crew & cast lists, exhibit G forms, and more. Come prepared to brainstorm as we cover everything you?ll need to have ready before the camera can roll.
