Production Workshop with Wilf Watson

Tuesday 8 May from 6 pm
Mayfair Gallery

7 Harriet Pl, Darwin.


What is Production really all about?

In this final Spark workshop, participants will learn about hands-on tools and methods to get started with the production of a low-budget short film. You have a kick-arse script, a director and a producer, very well. So what’s next? Where do you start? Multi-faceted content producer Wilf Watson will talk you through simple steps, handing out handy templates, dishing out juicy cautionary tales, and figuring out the answers to your most twisted questions.

Although this workshop is free and open to all, It will be a good opportunity for Spark applicants to get ideas on how to refine their project’s applications.
