Event description

Description

Sam George will be conducting a one-day documentary film workshop for early to mid-career filmmakers and enthusiasts. The fee is $95. There are no prerequisites for this workshop. A basic understanding of filmmaking would be helpful, but the workshop will likely be small and cater to individual questions and needs as determined throughout the day.

Here's a draft of the agenda for the day, and may be tweaked for any special interests if time permits:
