The INDEPENDENT FILM MASTER CLASS is a clear, concise and complete independent filmmaking blueprint for your film project that will allow you to sustain your life as a filmmaker!
- Concept, Story and Script Development: Developing ideas and concepts that work. Writing that script in a way that will get your film made without compromising your vision.

- Pre-production and Production: How to get the most filmmaking bang from your budget - creatively and cost-efficiently managing your project. Also, how best to work with actors, crew, locations, unions, guilds, crafts to ensure your film not only gets made, but looks exponentially more than it cost.
- Post-Production: New technologies and methodologies are making it easier to high end work with a low end budget. Find out what they are and what you need to do give a stunning, world-class finish to your film and how to prepare for it long before you reach post.
