Do you want to produce your film more professionally or are you interested in production? This workshop will provide you with knowledge and skills when creating a short or medium-length film. In 12 hours, this workshop will address all stages of production: the search for funding; the making of an estimate; pre production; production and post-production. Throughout this class, the goal is to learn how to master the tools as well as the essential elements related to producing. You will be able to self-produce more easily while respecting your artistic vision and limiting risk taking.

Workshop is given in French but questions may be asked in English.
