Sign up for a one-day intensive workshop on the business of financing and producing your film.
August 16, 2014 | 10AM to 4PM
On August 16th, Nick Quested, noted director, producer and Executive Director of Goldcrest, will lead a day-long workshop at Goldcrest on the business of financing and producing your film. Nick, who has produced many award-winning movies (The Art of Getting By, Restrepo and Vanishing on 7th Street) and directed over 100 videos (Nas, Dr. Dre, Trick Daddy, Sting, Puffy, DMX) and commercials, will share tips on getting started in the film business. He will then spend time breaking down the mechanics of getting your documentary or feature film funded and into production. As Nick says, “filmmaking means making films,” and he will explain exactly how that is done. Finally, as owner of Goldcrest Post, one of NYC’s most important post-production facilities and and the neophyte Saboteur Media, Nick will explain in detail how to get your film out there. This will include self-distribution and building a campaign around yourself and your movie.
Spaces are limited to 20 students and advance registration is required.
There are two free scholarship places for Bronx students. Send cover letter and online portfolio or PDF to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: We recommend that participants watch Restrepo prior to the workshop. You can watch the full documentary on Netflix.
