LOS ANGELES, Feb. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Budding filmmakers are growing in numbers by leaps and bounds. The digital revolution is in full bloom and has resulted in the democratization of filmmaking. At this year's Sundance Festival, a record-breaking 3148 features and 4300 shorts were submitted. But filmmaking success is all about visual storytelling, not about new equipment or digital pixels. And this is precisely what the Action/Cut Filmmaking Seminar (www.actioncut.com) teaches filmmakers and screenwriters: how to visually tell stories so as to can entertain and enchant audiences, and open Hollywood industry doors.
Guy Magar, the award-winning producer/writer/director with over 70 production credits, is bringing his 2-day Action/Cut Filmmaking Seminar to Los Angeles on March 11 & 12 which offers a unique, one-of-a-kind, filmmaking event. The course provides a front-row seat inside the filmmaking craft with first-hand knowledge of the production process from A-Z utilizing film clips and visual examples to create a unique and passionate storytelling experience through a step-by-step, shot-by-shot, audio-visual analysis of professional productions. Topics include how to write visually, hiring an agent, selling scripts, raising funding for movies, finding distribution, working the festival circuit, and building a show reel.
Action/Cut offers what every filmmaker and screenwriter needs to know before making their own short or feature film as it provides the practical and immediate knowledge of getting a film story from the written page to the visual screen.
Guy Magar directed the suspense/thriller CHILDREN OF THE CORN: REVELATION based on Stephen King's original story for Miramax Films, and he is in preparation for his next film DAGGER IN THE HEARTLAND. His film directing credits include SHOWDOWN starring Matt LeBlanc of TV's "Friends," STEPFATHER 3 (World-Premiered on HBO), and the cult thriller RETRIBUTION. His television work includes LA FEMME NIKITA, SLIDERS, NOWHERE MAN, DARK AVENGER, and HUNTER.
