Presented by Sundance Institute
Sundance Institute invites you to participate in ShortsLab: L.A., a three-part, all-day educational workshop to offer filmmakers first-hand insight and access into the world of story development, production, and exhibition of short films. The focus of the day will primarily be on short narrative (fiction) films.
Story Development (9:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.): Acclaimed filmmakers share their experiences working with short-form during their careers. These tales from the trenches will focus on conceptualization and script development.
Production (1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.): Industry professionals and special guests speak to the many challenges filmmakers face during production, including budgeting, working with unions, music rights, financing, and much more.
Exhibition (3:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.): An eclectic mix of speakers— including festival programmers, agents, managers, distributers, and more— share their advice on how to handle a completed film.
Cocktail Mixer and Screening (5:30 p.m.): ShortsLab caps off with an informal gathering followed by a 7:30 p.m. screening of award winning short films from the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.
Feedback: If you participate in ShortsLab: L.A. and submit your short film to the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, a Festival programmer will call you post-Festival to offer individual feedback on your film.
A list of guests will be announced shortly, so please check back for updates. For more information about ShortsLab: L.A., please call us at 310-360-1981 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
