You’ve always dreamed about making movies, but you can’t afford the time or money to go to film school…


In this new workshop, self-taught filmmaker J.P. Chan shares his experience in making artistically serious no/low-budget short films that have played for audiences around the world.

You’ll learn how to make movies and get them seen, as J.P. did, with “no experience, no money, and no connections.” In other words, you’ll learn how filmmakers learned the craft and business before going to film school became the norm: by actually making movies.

J.P.’s two hour workshop is suitable for all ages and levels of experience and includes:

* A screening of his four award-winning short films
* Advice on all stages of filmmaking, including the creative process, equipment, marketing, film festivals, and funding
* Extensive Q&A and participant-led discussion
* Admission to shorts program following the workshop featuring J.P. Chan’s latest film “I Don’t Sleep I Dream”
* Light refreshments
