Office Hours: Get Help On Your Projects

We’re almost at the end of the year and it’s the perfect time to finally get back around to that passion project!

BTFC office hours are good for health – the health of your projects that is. Chat with BTFC Co-Founder and 2020 Sundance Creative Producing Award winner (Farewell Amor) Huriyyah Muhammad.  She’ll do her best to offer you insight on pushing your project forward! 

For artists, isolation can be deadly to projects. In fact, it stops many projects before they have even fully begun. BTFC Office Hours were implemented to combat the isolation that we all sometimes fall victim to. During office hours we’ll answer general production questions and provide an environment where you can come in and work on your projects in the company of others.

How can we better describe them? 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, use a computer, work in the company of others. 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. You might have us all to yourself, or there may be one or two other filmmakers in the line ahead of you.

Join us to talk about your projects and ideas, so that you’re better equipped to move them forward. It’s all-time well spent.

NOTE: 40-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 4:00 – 8:00 PM ET on your calendar until your slot is received.
