In these three interactive virtual workshops, you'll learn step by step how to develop your story, develop your business plan and submit a top-notch application for a Greenlight Grant next spring. It's the perfect way to kick-start your project and, ultimately, increase its chances for success. To get the full benefit of the bootcamp, filmmakers should plan to attend all three parts.
Part One: Story Development
Saturday, Oct. 22, 10 AM - Noon CST
Presented by Kevin Christoffersen
Free to members of the Produce Iowa Media Production Directory ($50 for non-members)
What's your story?
Everything starts with an idea. In this workshop, you'll learn how to develop your idea by writing an effective treatment and logline that gets attention, draft scripts and shooting schedules to determine your production needs, add talent such as known directors and key cast to add value, consider art direction and lookbooks to help others see your vision, and produce websites and marketing reels to effectively promote your project. Even if you don't plan to submit for a Greenlight Grant, this course will teach you the basics for taking your project from script to screen.
