Comic-Con Film School 101: Preproduction and Screenwriting
Comic-Con Film School is back for another four-day, nuts-and-bolts class on how to make a movie for very little money using available video technology and desktop postproduction software. Whether you're shooting your first Zelda fan film or that story about the leather-clad girl who hunts gargoyles, this course will take you from script to final product so that you too can enter your own movie into the CCI-IFF. This first class covers the specifics of preproduction on the cheap, including screenwriting, scheduling, location scouting, crewing-up, and getting equipment for nothing. Panelists for the class include Valerie Perez (producer/star of the Paula Peril series), Jack Conway (producer of Machinima ETC), Vera Vanguard (producer of The Building of Good and Evil), Nick Murphy (writer/director of Pizza and Bullets), Josh Perilo (writer of Wedlock), and Sean Rourke (writer of Ballistica).
