DSLR Filmmaking Crash Course

FuelFilm:Memphis and the Memphis Film Society invite you to learn what it takes to develop, shoot, and distribute your independent feature film using the power of a DSLR camera, Saturday February 11 and Sunday February 12 from 9am to 4 pm both days (with lunch on your own).  Join us at Emerge Memphis, 516 Tennessee Street, Memphis, TN, where only $40 buys an unbelievable amount of instruction!

This course covers all aspects of production—development, pre-production, production, and post-production/distribution—all with the use of a low budget and a DSLR camera.  Topics include script development, planning your workflow, blocking and shooting, adhering to a budget/schedule, creating a viable product that WILL be distributable, and (of course) DSLR cinematography (though attendees can also opt to shoot with a different camera if they choose to).  Attendees are encouraged to bring writing materials and a USB thumb drive for class materials and extras since a LOT of information will be provided during the two day course.
Space is limited!  Register here at Eventbrite!
