The Producers’ Workshop was created as a knowledge sharing and mentorship space for young producers (students / entrepreneurs). They have the option of bringing in their projects for mentorship to pitch for funds / collaborations / etc.
Over the course of five days, the Workshop has key industry professionals and domain experts sharing their insights on different facets of producing films – Pitching, Funding, Co-Production deals, Film Markets etc. – in interactive closed door sessions. The sessions are integrated with the Knowledge Series vertical of the Bazaar and steadily give an overview of the challenges and the opportunities that the Producing Scape offers in both mainstream as well as Indie spaces.
At the workshop we also endeavour to explore an aspect of Producing in an alternate narrative format and direct the participants towards content creation within such spaces.
There are 2 key focus areas this year-
- Building Universe through Transmedia Content.
- The Animation & VFX pipeline for integration of CGI with Live action films
The workshop builds towards a final pitch of the participants’ project presented to a panel of mentors. The Pitch and feedback on how to make the project “Pitch-ready” is one of the end “deliverables” and key take-aways for each participant at the workshop.
