A short film can be a calling card for a feature and is also a great opportunity to learn the process by doing! Going from a short to a feature presents many new creative and tactical issues. Learn how to take on the challenge in this live, three-hour online master class with the award-winning writer/director/actor Jim Cummings, who successfully transitioned his short, Thunder Road, into a feature film. Jim will cover the creative challenges of writing a feature script adapted from a short; financing, including the use of crowd-funding or crowd-equity platforms; production and post-production, including scheduling and budgeting; self-distribution versus classic distribution; and how to make the most out of digital advertising.
The master class took place in our virtual classroom Tuesday, November 19th from 12:30pm-3:30pm PT.
