Event Overview

Back by Popular Demand!
Experience Abundant Story Playground. An interactive event for digital content creators – writers and directors, others in filmmaking, actors and audience members -- who want to play and create in a whole new way!

We disrupt the writing process so that writers leave Playground with stronger characters, scenes, and stories, actors have a better sense of quickly deepening a character (and be seen by content creators), and audience members contribute opinions and suggestions about the story and the script.

During this interactive event winning scripts will be broken down through Abundant Story Playgrounds' writing disruption immersion process.

BIOGRAPHIES

Event Overview

One of the single most asked questions in the world of filmmaking is “How do I finance my film?” and for good reason. With all the exciting tools and platforms available to create and distribute content today, financing a short or feature film continues to be a challenge for filmmakers in today’s strained economy. Even foreign money sources are compromised and according to a recent article in The Hollywood Reporter, "China is an expanding source of financing, but as the Chinese government puts a hold on money leaving the country, studios...are left in the lurch". Our expert panel will discuss current factors at play and tips & strategies to help prepare today’s filmmakers for the ever-changing world of film financing.
