Think you’ve got the idea for the next great documentary? Or maybe you’re just looking to make that Kickstarter video pop.
Chicago Filmmakers, at 5720 N. Ridge in Edgewater, is hosting a two-day workshop in the genre March 15 and 16.
Students will learn from professional teachers working in the industry, and will “develop the foundational skill-sets necessary to continue crafting content on their own that looks and sounds professional regardless of production budgets,” according to an announcement from the organization. “Whether creating a crowdfunding campaign video for an independent project or piecing together a testimonial video to demonstrate a company’s new product or event, this course will provide students from all professional backgrounds and filmmaking experience levels the opportunity to master new lucrative skills under the guidance of seasoned professionals.”
The cost of the workshop is $300 for members, $315 for non-members.
Chicago Filmmakers is a not-for-profit arts organization dedicated to helping people acquire the tools they need to become a filmmaker.
