The Business of Production

January 10, 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Workshop 3 of The Business of Filmmaking Workshop series

This series will provide a comprehensive look at taking your script to the screen including how to set up your production company, finalize your script and budget, prepare a pitch package, find funding options, and processes and tasks of pre-production.

Led by Iocal PGA Producer, Marcie Gibboney, this educational series consists of presentations, discussion, and workshopping your project, all designed to advance your film effectively through the business of filmmaking.

This third workshop will provide filmmakers with the next steps after your project has funding and is greenlit. Focus will be on the processes and tasks during the pre-production process including finalizing your script and creating the production budget to set up insurance and contracts with the unions. These insights will help ensure that you have a strong infrastructure to make your project a success.
