What you'll learn in this film production class:

Microbudget Filmmaking: The Route to Development and Production

In this class, you will learn proven, cost-effective filmmaking and business techniques for producing a $50,000 (or less!) film project. We’ll go step-by-step through the filmmaking process to discover tips and tricks for developing, planning, and producing a microbudget film.

During this workshop, filmmaker Paul Harrill will take you through each stop on the road to making your film: how to build a lean budget from your initial conception or screenplay, how to navigate funding (through self-finance or crowdsourcing or other means), and how to responsibly manage all the stages of production to stay on (or under!) budget while keeping true to the spirit of the project. 


What You Will Learn

  • How to develop a script or story treatment that can be filmed on a microbudget 
  • How to raise money from investors, fans, friends, and family (and the legal issues involved)
  • Pre-production tips for an efficient and well-scheduled shoot with special attention given to locations, permits, and insurance
  • On-set tips and answers to other mysterious, on-the-fly production questions (We’ll also discuss catering a microbudget shoot!)
  • A brief overview of the film festival and digital distribution landscape, and how to build these strategies into your microbudget
