The TriFilm Society, in collaboration with Blueforest Studios, held a panel discussion on the logistics of a film project yesterday afternoon. Leading up to the discussion we asked for questions for our panelists. It was a great conversation.
Our panelists included:
- June Sadler, documentary filmmaker
- Tripp Green, cinematographer
- Sean Riddle, project manager at Blueforest Studios
During the panel discussion we covered film financing, finding paid work, distribution plans, and film festival circuits. We had a lot of great questions from the audience about guaranteed paid work, and how to gauge whether or not you should work for free. We also briefly touched on building your audience, leveraging social media, and making the most of what’s available on the internet.
After the panel discussion wrapped, I heard great feedback about it. The discussion was very helpful to a lot of people at all experience levels. Not only was the information helpful but it was great to be together in person talking about the work happening here in North Carolina, and how it connects us to the global film community.
Thank you all for submitting questions ahead of time. Special thanks to all of the panelists for sharing their time and expertise. We also want to thank Blueforest Studios for being so hospitable with their space, and their kindness in collaborating to put together such an excellent event. We couldn’t have done this without all of you.
The TriFilm Society has more panel discussions shaping up, and they are about all aspects of filmmaking. When the events are finalized we will be sure to share more details. Please sign up for our email list so that you’re one of the first to hear about it!
