No Budget Film School presents its famed two-day micro-budget filmmaking class in Los Angeles August 20 & 21, 2011. Specifically designed for no-budget filmmakers who are ready to finance their own projects, the lessons, tools, and techniques gained will maximize limited resources and minimize critical errors that can doom otherwise worthy projects. Producer Mark Stolaroff--former principal of IFC's Next Wave Films--and guest experts teach the specific methods, models and priorities unique to micro-budget filmmaking, whether the budget is $200,000 or $2,000, in this in-depth, one-of-a-kind class. Attendees will walk away with powerful ideas that they can use immediately, saving them time and money. These cutting edge techniques can NOT be found in a book, at film school, or in other film classes. Guest speakers include:
Peter Broderick (President, Paradigm Consulting). Considered one of the world's leading authorities on alternative distribution strategy, Peter will be giving an empowering presentation on Hybrid Distribution and Crowdfunding.
Evan Glodell & Vincent Glashaw, (Filmmakers, "Bellflower"). Made for $15k with a homemade camera, "Bellflower" was a hit at this year's Sundance and SXSW and opened theatrically Aug. 5th, selling out the Nuart.
Joshua Leonard, (Actor, Director). Perhaps best known for his roles on seminal no-budget films like "The Blair Witch Project" and "Humpday," as well as bigger projects like HBO's "Hung," Joshua's directorial debut "The Lie" premiered at this year's Sundance and is opening this Fall.
Matt Radecki (Producer, "Marwencol"; Founder, Different By Design). A prolific producer whose post house caters to independents, Matt will discuss no-budget post production.
Other Speakers TBA
