She will walk you through the steps to make your dream of an award winning short film a reality. She will share her highly sought after expertise based on her top tier programming (Sundance, LAFF, and Tampa LGBT) and producing and directing over 30 short and feature films. Topics covered (based her best selling book How Not to Make a Short Film: Secret From a Sundance Programmer):
We Start on Tuesday, March 6th, 2018.
Former Sundance Programmer, Award-Winning filmmaker, and author Roberta Marie Munroe will be sharing her in-depth knowledge with filmmakers on how to make short films that guarantee success.
Short films have been enjoying the spotlight and launching the careers of filmmakers on a global scale at film festivals such as the Toronto (TIFF), Berlinale, Cannes, Palm Springs ShortsFest and many more.
Hulu, the YouTube Screening Room, Amazon, and several other platforms are offering short format creators an immense platform, providing audiences in the millions. And some of these filmmakers are actually being paid handsomely for their work!
“Making a short can be a very daunting and difficult task. However, it can also be fun, inspiring and the perfect launching pad for artists looking to make feature films, work in television or continue to make short format content! My Masterclasses help filmmakers understand what elements must be in place to make their short a viable project.” – Roberta Munroe.
About Roberta Marie Munroe: A short film programmer for the Sundance Film Festival (2001-2006), and author of the Amazon Best Seller How Not To Make A Short Film: Secrets From A Sundance Programmer, and an award winning short filmmaker herself, Munroe understands well what it takes to make a great short and get then to get maximum distribution for it.
While no expert can ever know anything truly…Roberta is the only writer who’s ever addressed what not to do creatively, what to do practically, and how to execute it. So read the book and go make a short that just might find its way into the Sundance catalog.
From the foreword,
