Instructor: Lindy Boustedt
Tuition: $120 ($95 for Film Forum members)

Participants will gain an understanding of the creative producer’s process, timelines and the many idiosyncrasies around an independent film’s life cycle from development through initial deliverables. Lindy Boustedt will share how, through her award-winning company First Sight Productions, she has produced 18 short films and 3 feature films with budgets of all shapes and sizes. She will use her most recent short film and feature film as case studies. Participants are encouraged to bring their own projects to the class for specific advice. This two day workshop will cover budgeting/financing/audience on day one and pre- through post-production on day two.
