Greg’s presentation will include practical low-budget to no-budget ideas, concepts, and tips.
Attending filmmakers will deconstruct an actual Hollywood scene. They will learn how to break down a script into useable-shootable parts, how to assemble the right crew and how to bring the project to the screen.

Attendees are urged to bring their project ideas for discussion and practical guidance. This is a do not miss presentation conducted by an unusually experienced Producer who created successful broadcasts from war zones to national Presidential conventions. He now applies his extensive experience and award winning expertise to the film and media industries.
