Guest Speaker: STEVE BALDERSON, Director

Roger Ebert gave Steve’s film, FIRECRACKER, starring Karen Black and Mike Patton, a Special Jury Award on his annual Best Films of the Year list. His first film PEP SQUAD premiered at the Cannes Film Festival at Le Marché du Film then became a 90s cult classic. In 2011, the U.S. Library of Congress selected his film THE CASSEROLE CLUB, starring Susan Traylor and Kevin Richardson of the Backstreet Boys, for its permanent collection. In 2015, his film EL GANZO won Best Feature, Best Actor and Best Cinematography at the Salento International Film Festival in Italy.
Film Threat magazine says, “Balderson makes movies that are so gorgeous that it’s not unreasonable to say that, cinematographically at least; he’s the equal of an Argento or Kubrick in their prime. Some people have perfect vocal pitch, Steve has perfect visual composition.”
Interested not just in film but also architecture, design and elements of time and space, Balderson's milieu is all-inclusive and his work bears an unmistakable, individual stamp. Though he chuckles when he says his idea of a good time is ‘going out to sketch a story board,’ he's not kidding. Driven and prolific, in 2017 Balderson directed his first music video for The Go-Go’s Jane Wiedlin.

“The workshop was fantastic, I enjoyed every minute of it and I loved the thoroughness of the information discussed. The information was very useful. I gained the perspective of utilizing how to speak more effectively with people. I can use what I learned in the workshop to help me with my future projects and my daily life. I would wholeheartedly recommend this workshop to others.” – A.H.

“I had some knowledge about building a business plan and budget, no insight into where to find investors though. Biggest shift was that raising funds now seems obtainable. It will take a lot of leg work but now I have a direction and a place to start. For anyone who has made a film or plans on making a film this workshop was a great place to not only start, but also to enhance knowledge that one might already have about approaching potential investors.” – J.J.

“I thought the flow and the agenda was terrific.” – C.A.

"Dikenga for life!" - Lloyd Kaufman, President Troma Entertainment
