This 5 day course will provide new creative producers with an understanding of how to build a slate when not sure how to begin, and a chance to explore whether this is their route into the industry.
If you have a script, story or beginnings of an idea you can learn how to develop it and pitch it. Then, through collaborating with other participants, you'll see what the filmmaking process looks like by following the journey of a proposal - from story idea to screen.
Karen Stirgwolt was a producer on Runaway Bride - one of the highest grossing romantic comedies of all time - starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere.
