CLASS INFO :
In this 5 hour online producer's class, you will be walked through the process of producing a feature film in the current 2020 market landscape by instructor, Micah Lyons. The class will cover all aspects of feature film development, production, post production and distribution. Everything from what types of stories most studios and production companies are looking for right now, how to raise the money (there are LOTS of good tricks of the trade in this section!), how to attach a famous actor or director, how to lead a large team of filmmakers on set, how to guide the film through post production, and how to land a meaningful sales agent and distributor and negotiate those deals. All taught fairly quickly, in great detail, and with some fun real-life stories/experiences to help get the points across. This course will be a very comprehensive overview which is meant for those who are looking to produce movies/television in the near future or those who have already tried and can't seem to figure out what they're doing wrong. We want you to make films that SELL so you can have a full time career in this business and do exactly what you love!
Students will have the opportunity to network within the zoom video chat and ask any and all questions they may have. Once the 5 hours is up, everyone is free to sign off but the instructor will stay in the video chat until all pitches are made and all questions are answered... No matter how late it goes! Also, students will have the opportunity to pitch projects and ideas to one another and to the instructor while on the video chat. It doesn't get more "Hollywood" than that!!!
