You will learn a lot about the process of making a film beginning with your idea and how to bring it to the screen all the way to the tricky job of attracting an audience. 


It's an intensive seminar that drills deep into the process. You'll be tired by the end of the seminar but that will be overpowered by your desire to get going on your project.


The instructor, Tom Hofbauer, has been making films for 20 years and knows his way around an indie project film set. 


With three feature films under his belt and scores of other projects (commercials, industrials, music videos, live-to-the-web broadcasts and training films--just to name a few), he knows the ins-and-outs of filmmaking and is offering all this information to you at the amazing low price of $199. This works out to just about $12 an hour for a ton of useful information. 


Tom is offering this class in Los Angeles for all of you who have realized that you have to have original content on the Internet to attract the attention of agents, managers, producers and casting directors. 


There is a Saturday/Sunday class for those of you who work during the week and a Tuesday/Wednesday class for you weekend workers. We will go from 9 am to 6 pm each day with an hour break for lunch and networking with other attendees.

Send us your information, too. Use the "Comments/Questions" box to tell us what your role in a film production is, any experience you have, and what you hope to learn from the seminar.
