Deadline July 6th for Film Independent Producer’s Lab
Attention producers: here’s the official notice about this great opportunity from our friends at Film Independent.
FILM INDEPENDENT’S PRODUCERS LAB – Apply now!
Deadline: 6 July 2009
Application Fee: $55 Members, $75 Non-members
Designed to help filmmakers develop skills as creative independent producers, the Producers Lab is an intensive seven-week program running two evenings a week in Los Angeles in October and November. During the Lab, Fellows develop a strategy and action plan for bringing their feature film projects to fruition, including a detailed budget, schedule, and business plan.
A secondary goal of the program is to help advance the careers of the Lab Fellows by introducing them to film professionals who can advise them on both the craft and business of independent producing. Lab Fellows have one-on-one meetings with established independent producers and other industry professionals who act as advisors on the participant’s projects.
A maximum of ten projects are selected. Producing teams are welcome to apply.
Past Labs have been taught by Matthew Greenfield (Fox Searchlight), Effie T. Brown (producer, Rocket Science), Gina Kwon (producer, Me, You & Everyone We Know), and Ram Bergman (producer, Brothers Bloom).
Films that were developed in past Producers Labs include Suzi Yoonessi’s Dear Lemon Lima, Tina Mabry’s Mississippi Damned, Scott Prendergast’s Kabluey, and Jessica Sanders’s acclaimed documentary After Innocence.
