A successful producer knows how to budget effectively. This is even more vital when it comes to short films where budgets are assembled and spent creatively and often on a bargaining basis. In an environment where no two projects are alike, London Film Academy brings together an a roster of filmmakers behind some of the most successful shorts of recent times and – made on budgets ranging from micro to macro – we ask them just how they got away with it.
About the BAFTA and Rushes Soho Shorts New Filmmakers’ Market...
For the fourth year running, emerging filmmakers will take over BAFTA HQ for an all-day of discussions, events, debates with screenings, an industry market and networking. This day brings newer filmmakers into the heart of the industry with established pros, and more experienced practitioners, and is packed with sessions ranging from Short Film Finance and good practice in working with writers to building a YouTube channel as a way of monetizing your content.
The bold among you will have a chance to pitch a feature idea to the established film industry, hosted by Advance Films, and featuring Revolver Entertainment and Rankin Film, among others. We’ll also offer more intimate encounters with the BBC Writers room, Crossroads Films, and top VFX, Production and Crew in our ‘Meet the Pro’ sessions. All of these events will culminate in a networking drink at 17:30, free to all ticket holders.
Presented alongside Shooting People, London Film School, National Film and Television School, YouTube, Creative Skillset, Advance Films, Sara Putt Associates, Film London, Aesthetica, Crossroads Films, Directors UK, FujiFilm, Starnow, the BBC Writers Room, Women in Film and Television, Shots Magazine and The Smalls.
