The Finalé/Picture Shop Producer's Panel Series presented by WIFTV goes online this winter November 7 - December 5, 2020, with 5 panels examining all aspects of production, from Development to Distribution, with an additional panel to explore Pathways to Representation.
WIFTV has brought together both senior and emerging producers from different genres, backgrounds and provinces to share their knowledge. Each producer brings a specific case-study to dissect and discuss with a moderator, culminating in a Q&A with participants.
The Series is designed for both emerging and intermediate producers wishing to learn from the experience of working producers and industry experts. The panel series is organized to follow the chapter formats of the Producer’s Workbook 5 and covers each phase of production from getting started, script and development through to distribution and marketing.
Taking place over 5 Saturdays (Nov 7 - Dec 5, 2020) in a webinar format, the panels last 1.5 hours each and include 3 moderated case-studies and a Q&A. Genres covered include feature drama, feature documentary, dramatic web series/TV and documentary web series/TV. Each panel begins at 11:00 am PST and ends at 12:30 pm PST.
Recordings are available for registered attendees and may be available in our website archive library at a future date.
