This workshop hosted by NOVAC and taught by visiting filmmaker Camille Brown, covers the breaking down of a script for low budget/non-union crew projects. Participants may bring in a script, 15 pages or less and together we will break it down and create a schedule and budget. For those who don’t have a script, Camille will have some to share.
