Few filmmaking experiences can match the joy of showcasing your work to a theatre full of rabid fans. But on the flipside, few things suck more than getting booed.
HorrorFest audiences are known to be some of the most brutally honest and vocal critics who'll ever see your movie. So to help ensure it’s your best work Heavy Hitting is proud to host another “Pitch to Screen Workshop” on June 24, 2018.
Designed to give participating filmmakers a chance to bounce their ideas off a mentor/industry expert, the 2018 Summit is proud to host writer/director/producer Jeffery Scott Lando.
Known for his work on Savage Island, Supercollider and Roboshark, Jeffery has extensive experience in all levels of the film industry and knows what it takes to getting a movie from idea to distribution.
With a host of genre festival accolades under his belt (“Best Feature Film” at Fright-Fest, “Best Picture - Feature” at ShockerFest and “Best Fiction Film” at the Strasbourg Film Festival) Jeffery has the chops, experience and style to help any filmmaker up their game.
The Seminar format will include general presentations on story, effects and production tactics as well as back-and-forth pitch workshopping and an extended question period. Lunch will be provided by Sushi Village.
$50 entrance fee includes access to the Heavy Hitting Pitch to Screen Luncheon on June 24, 2018 and DOES NOT include tickets or access to the Heavy Hitting Horrorfest.
