Saturday, 11/08/14 10:00am - 1:00pm at the IDA Offices

The right producer can take your vision and nurture it throughout the filmmaking process, ultimately helping you to make the best film possible and giving you the greatest chance for success. In the course of a decade, Paula DuPre' Pesmen has established herself as just such a producer. Working with three first-time directors, her astonishing track record includes this year's highly acclaimed Keep On, Keepin' On, the Academy Award®-winning The Cove (2009) and Sundance award-winning Chasing Ice (2012). In this Master Class on Producing, Paula will share her insights into what it takes to establish and maintain strategically vital relationships, successfully manage and maximize budgets, and squeeze the full creative potential out of each of her films.
