Running a Green Production (FREE!)
** This event is now FREE thanks to King County’s sponsorship! **
Join filmmaker/producer Mischa Jakupcak for a discussion about green filmmaking, ways to save money, reuse, recycle and build a sustainable film community. Productions can be wasteful environments. Let’s support each other’s efforts to live up to a new normal for productions in our region.
Mischa recently did this successfully via the shooting of Wes Hurley’s feature film, Potato Dreams of America.
