LFA presents: DIGITAL PLATFORMS @ SCREENTEST
Date: Sat 19 March 2011, 14.00-15.30
Location: Southbank University, 103 Borough Road SE1 0AA
What are digital platforms and how can filmmakers use them to generate recognition and interest in their work? Is a strong fanbase as valuable and powerful as a big budget or huge star?
This discussion aims to show filmmakers what opportunities and possibilities are available to them through self-promoting themselves and their work across digital platforms.
