Pretend to be cool by holding this

Pretend to be cool by holding this

If it weren’t already pretty obvious, you should know that creating a film is hard. Even some of the greatest filmmakers we know today had to start from the most modest of beginnings [1]. Thankfully, the Gender Equity Resources Center [2] is reaching out to Cal’s film [3] community [4], particularly to aspiring female filmmakers who have the burden of breaking into a male-dominated industry, by sponsoring a workshop that will teach students the basic steps of film production. The workshop will take place on Friday, Nov. 18 in 2040 Valley Life Sciences Building from 6:30 to 9 p.m.

Scarlett Shepard [5], founder and executive director of the Women’s Film Institute [6], will teach participants how to approach each step in creating a film such as thinking out a story/concept, finding ways to fund and distribute your project and dealing with post-production issues. After the workshop there will be a screening of a collection of short films that will be featured in this year’s Women’s Film Festival [7].

There will also be free refreshments. We all love free stuff, right? Yes, yes we do. Go for the artistic cause, stay for the snacks.
