Spend two hours with acclaimed, accomplished and prolific Winnipeg filmmaker BJ Verot as he guides you through his career, detailing his work as an independent filmmaker and his successful transition from directing shorts to his first feature film.
This workshop will go over his script writing process, finding the right people to collaborate with, the importance of learning to be your own producer and how to set bench marks with each film project to have a successful career. After the talk, there will be a 30 minute Q&A.
