The Professional Indie Set: Maximizing Resources through Leadership & Collaboration

This 6-hour workshop will has limited spaces and focuses on organization and collaboration for the sake of efficiency while shooting on a limited independent budget.  It will establish a realistic, hands-on framework for understanding the realtime demands of professional production. It will also illustrate opportunities for key members to delegate tasks so they can focus on their most important responsibilities. For example: through better coordination and collaboration directors can spend more time focusing on performance rather than dealing with the logistics of shooting a film.

Some topic explored:

  • Director’s main responsibilities on & off the set
  • How the Assistant Director assists the production in the best ways possible
  • How the Cinematographer works with the Director in pre-production through post
  • Pre-production meetings: where the art really happens
  • Location scouting
  • Set etiquette
  • Set jargon
  • Set safety
  • Protecting the crew
