During BTFC Office Hours, we’ll answer general production questions and provide an environment where you can get advice and feedback on ONE project from industry professionals.

What are Office Hours?

It’s an open door for any member who would like to just come in and ask a question. Get a second pair of eyes on a rough cut, get some help on budgets, have your script reviewed…Remember back in the day when our professors had office hours and you would just go in to ask a question or get some help? That is what these office hours are like.

NOTE: 30-minute slots will be assigned on a first RSVP basis. A Zoom link will be sent to you 48 hours before your session. Please block out 7:00 – 9:00 PM ET on your calendar until your slot is received.
