Planning to move to Hollywood? Want a job IN the Industry that’s actually fairly easy to get?? Become a Reader!
A Reader reads scripts, novels, treatments, and the like for one (or more) production companies and then writes Coverage. The Coverage includes a summary of the story and then an analysis about what worked, what didn’t work, and most importantly: what’s the commercial viability. And the best part is you get paid per job and you can work as much or as little as you need while you work on your own projects!

No Budget Film School presents its famed two-day micro-budget filmmaking class in Houston June 8 & 9, 2013. Specifically designed for no-budget filmmakers who are ready to finance their own projects, the lessons, tools, and techniques gained will maximize limited resources and minimize critical errors that can doom otherwise worthy projects. Producer Mark Stolaroff – former principal of IFC’s Next Wave Films – and guest experts teach the specific methods, models and priorities unique to micro-budget filmmaking, whether the budget is $200,000 or $200, in this in-depth, one-of-a-kind class. Attendees will walk away with powerful ideas that they can use immediately, saving them time and money. These cutting edge techniques can NOT be found in a book, at film school, or in other film classes.

No Budget Film School has partnered with Write Brothers and Showbiz Software to bring you an incredible offer. All attendees will receive Movie Magic Screenwriter software and Showbiz Producer software absolutely FREE! (a $340 Value!).

The Art of the Interview Workshop!
Saturday, April 13th, 10am – 1pm
Location: SWAMP House, 1519 West Main
SWAMP is pleased to bring Bruce Bryant and Jim Barham (For the Sake of the Song: The Story of Anderson Fair) to share their time-tested knowledge on the art of interviewing. Conducting an on-camera interview for documentaries, commercials, and other projects can be nerve-wracking for both the filmmaker and the subject! Techniques for drawing out stories or a “performance” from an interview take years of practice and also require adaptability depending on the person being interviewed. Whether you are new to interviewing or a veteran, come brush up on the dos and don’ts and discover the best practices for making your subjects comfortable in front of a camera so that their stories, and your projects, capture the heart of your audience!
