Filmmakers Billy “Bloody Bill” Pon (Circus of the Dead, Doll Boy), Chuck Norfolk (Haunted Trailer, Getting Schooled), Courtney Sandifer (Life Insurance Lottery, Jacob) and Kelley Wilson Robinson (The Good Things Devils Do, The Sinful South) talk about what it really takes to make your own horror movie. From coming up with the right ideas to making those ideas a reality. How to approach actors for work, how to draw up a contract for locations, music, actors, crews, extras. Equipment importance, sound, video, etc... Why film festivals, selling your film, distribution even self distribution. Come hear stories from the trenches of indie horror filmmaking from the people that are doing it. Our goal is to maybe prevent future filmmakers from the same pitfalls that befall so many others. Come and take notes and your questions are highly encouraged!
Please note that seating is very limited for this class!
