DATE: Wednesday, August 21: TIME: 7:00PM-9:00PM; SUMMER 2013
In this Master Class, Ben Kalina will discuss the consistent elements of producing an environmental justice documentary. How does your budget dictate the approach, your equipment, and your crew? How do you pick a subject? Or, if the subject has picked you, how do you choose the storyline? What is your perceived market and audience, and how does that influence how you design and when you begin your outreach? Are you considering traditional-, self-, or hybrid distribution? Is a feature documentary the best or only way to go? Ultimately, if your goal is to make a difference and to have an impact, what might that look like and what's the best way to make that happen? This workshop is intended for filmmakers at any stage of their project, from pre-production through outreach and distribution.
