***APPLY FOR THE PRODUCER'S CIRCLE***
DEADLINE FOR FALL CIRCLE: Aug 16th
Join our information circle for the launch of the Black TV & Film Collective's Producer's Circle.
In 2020, the Black TV & Film Collective will select up to 10 narrative producers to actively support and engage as they take their projects through the phases of production, starting with the production of a proof of concept.
Meeting bi-weekly, the Producer's Circle will assist in the development, prep, production and post of a project. Along the way, we’ll introduce you to industry leaders and experts, as they offer access and mentorship toward making your feature. Along the way, we will assist you in the production of a proof of concept that can be used to assist in attracting the necessary human and financial capital to complete your full feature.
As with everything we do, the aim of this lab is to aid our members in achieving their professional goals. With our Collective based approach, this circle of experienced producers is here to help you achieve success.
We want to see you win. That's what we're here for.
