How to Learn, Break In and Rise Up in the Film and TV Industry with Anthony Artis

How to Learn, Break In and Rise Up in the Film and TV Industry with Anthony Artis

Presented by DCTV & Shooting People
Friday, December 5th, 7:30pm
DCTV, 87 Lafayette Street NYC

No one ever said breaking into the film/tv industry was easy, especially in the Big Apple, especially during a country's economic crisis!  For all these reasons and more, we can feel safe again with the advice of our friend Anthony Artis at DCTV.

The author of Shut Up and Shoot Documentary Guide and host of the Down and Dirty DV podcast and blog will deliver an inspirational and practical real-world overview of what it takes to break into the film and TV industry.  The wide range of topics to be discussed, include:  learning the filmmaking process, film school vs. self-teaching, specific film job resources for NYC, making the most out of your first job or internship, recommended reading, Los Angeles vs. New York, working in an industry office and overviews of common tracks to directing, writing, editing and producing films and TV.

If youve recently graduated from film school, or are looking to make a career transition, then this seminar is the perfect introduction into the world of film and TV.  Following Anthonys seminar will be a Q&A session as well as a book signing.
