A conversation about the pluses and minuses of working with other people. We’d love to hear from filmmakers who work with large and small crews and those who choose to work pretty much on their own.
Co-hosted by Dawn George & Charles Wahl
Coop Chats will bring together a group of filmmakers to talk about a specific filmmaking topic. These are not classes or workshops, they are conversations. The idea is to share information, ideas, tips, tricks and best practices in a particular area. The chats will be moderated by staff (and special guest hosts), and participants will be free to contribute as much or as little as they feel comfortable. With this in mind the sessions will be capped at 12 participants.
If you register but then are unable to attend please let us know so we can add someone from the wait list.
