How to Produce Anything!

Starts October 26

2 sessions: Saturday-Sunday, October 26-27, 10am-2pm

Learn successful producing strategies from Jim Gambone, who has independently produced and distributed films, TV shows, national and international teleconferences, radio programs and commercials, music videos, community media events, and much more over his 30 years of media work. He’ll distill his experiences into practical recommendations, provide case studies from his own work to help you become a better producer, and take time to consider and answer questions about projects you want to produce.  

You’ll leave the workshop feeling more confident about your producing abilities and having more strategies in your media toolbox for overcoming obstacles you’ll probably face with your own productions. Participants will be expected to e-mail the following to Jim at [email protected] in advance of the workshop: a résumé, plus a description of workshop expectations and a details of a specific project you’re considering.
