In Advisor Studio sessions, Sundance Collab Advisors share field experiences and insights into their specific areas of craft, including writing, directing and producing for TV and film.
Roger Ross Williams is an Oscar, Emmy, NAACP Image award, Webby and Peabody award-winning director, producer and writer in documentary filmmaking – and the first African American director to win an Academy Award ®, with his short film Music By Prudence. In this Advisor Studio, Roger will talk through his creative journey and experience developing and making Cassandro, his debut fiction feature. He will discuss his transition from documentary filmmaking to fiction focusing on the writing process, learning how to work with actors, finding great collaborators and the editing process. Cassandro, starring Gael Garcia Bernal, will have its world premiere at the upcoming Sundance Film Festival.
