The fundraising trailer is often the first piece of an independently produced film to “go public.” It is required for many big film grants and a valuable tool for crowd-sourcing campaigns that can help raise production funds to complete your film. But how can you put together a successful one with limited footage? What should you include and what should you leave out? Robin Lung invites two seasoned filmmakers to address these questions before screening two work-in-progress pieces from her own documentary-in-progress FINDING KUKAN and eliciting feedback from participants. Feedback collected at the workshop will be used by Lung to edit a third work-in-progress piece.
Award-winning filmmaker Kimberlee Bassford will open the workshop by sharing her experience screening numerous work-in-progress pieces as a panelist for a major film grant. Shirley Thompson, the editor of many work-in-progress pieces that have developed into nationally broadcast films, will give practical tips on how to put together your own fundraising trailer.
