Upcoming Pre-Event Workshops at Boulder’s Filmmaking Contest

We have two workshops to provide: First is with the support of Boulder Digital Arts, is on Thursday, September 29 from 6:30 – 8:30 pm at the BDA Production Studio.  You will meet other interested participants and potential crew, find out what makes a winning film, learn tricks of the trade, meet the organizers and see examples from previous years’ winners! Register directly on the BDA Website!

Workshop Sign-up Second is with the support of the Boulder Arts Commission.  This workshop is designed to help prepare the filmmakers of all ages for The Shoot Out Boulder.

This day long event is on Saturday, October 1st from 9:30 AM – 4:00 PM. It will inspire film-makers to make a fast film while teaching them the methodology of successful short-form storytelling, lighting, directing, and in-camera editing.  Special emphasis will be paid to The Shoot Out’s official format and requirements. Sign up here!

The workshop is a great way to help filmmakers find their vision, learn problem solving skills, and meet new friends.  After this event, participants should have a head-start on preparing for the upcoming Shoot Out.
