IFP NARRATIVE LAB DEADLINE APPROACHING
Just a quick note to let the filmmakers in our readership know that the IFP Narrative Lab, which I am leading along with Gretchen McGowan, has a deadline of April 17. The lab is a five-day intensive series of workshops, roundtables and presentations for filmmakers whose works are at the rough cut stage and who are seeking guidance about editing and reaching picture lock, sound design, festival strategy, distribution and legal issues, and DIY releasing strategies. It takes place in New York June 8 – 12. A number of past participants have blogged about their experience over at The Workbook Project, and you can see a short video that gives you a taste of the labs here.
Obviously I’m biased because I’m a part of it, but I think this is a great program. It’s open to first-time U.S. filmmakers who have complete their principal photography. Further criteria can be found at this link, and the application can be downloaded at the site above.
