To support our community of filmmakers during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, we made the decision to remove the $50 fee for Sundance Collab Master Classes. As we meet this next moment and continue to support artists through our content, we are reinstating a discounted fee of $27 for on-demand recordings.
Both Master Class live event registration and on-demand recording access to this and more than 40 other Master Classes are included in Collaborator and All Access memberships. Upgrade today and get a free 14-day trial.
Master Classes are in-depth, interactive learning experiences focused on craft and career building and led by renowned industry experts. Topics include fiction and documentary filmmaking, TV writing and production, and navigating and succeeding in the entertainment industry.

In this three-hour Master Class, DGA Award-winning and Emmy-nominated director and producer Lesli Linka Glatter (Homeland, Mad Men) shares her approach to creative decision-making and reveals the process of blocking and designing complex, cinematic scenes for some of television’s most beloved shows.
