  • 4:00 PM - 7:30 PM Micro-Budget Filmmaking Workshop

    Geared toward DIY and experienced filmmakers alike, this workshop aims to help students overcome one of the biggest obstacles in filmmaking: securing financial support for production. Ava Torres and Helmann Wilhelm, founders of Canted Pictures, will show how limitations of funding, studio space, and equipment can be transformed into artistic benefits. Topics to be covered include research in pre-production, script development, insurance and legal contracts, working with limited tools and with a skeleton crew, popular micro-budget films, crowd funding and grants, and post-production. In all, the workshop will dispel the myth that large sums of money and professional equipment are required to produce quality films.

    Ava Torres and Helmann Wilhelm are the founders of Canted Pictures, an independent film production company specializing in micro-budget filmmaking. They enjoy taking risks, whether aesthetically or narratively, and one of the ways they achieve this is by working within their means to push their creative boundaries. Collectively, their films have been official selections at the National Screen Institute of Canada, Festival de Cannes - Short Film Corner, Grand River Film Festival, Orlando Film Festival, Miami Independent Film Festival, and Hollyshorts Film Festival, among others.

    Registration is free but space is limited. Register at . Registrants may be required to show their OneCard at the door.

    This event is made possible through the support of the Office of the Dean of Arts, the Department of English and Film Studies, and the Department of Communication Studies.
