SWAMP hosts free film seminar
SWAMP (The Southwest Alternative Media Project) will offer a free film seminar on Monday, October 27 at the Rice Media Center (6 to 8 pm.). The course titled “Crowdfunding to Build Independence” focuses on funding for independent films.
From the SWAMP press release: “The only proven path to independence as an artist is a direct connection to your audience. Crowdfunding is becoming a fundamental piece of most financing plans for independent film. However, many filmmakers miss the opportunity to turn their film funding campaigns into audience-building opportunities that can last an entire career - and provide the groundwork for theatrical distribution that you control. Seed & Spark and Tugg are combining forces to invest in the future of independent film by offering a comprehensive Crowdfunding to Build Independence workshop. This two-hour session for film-related projects will provide the crowdfunding action plan most likely to create a lasting, flourishing, direct relationship with your audience.”
SWAMP is also looking for volunteers to help “clear out their office located at 1519 W. Main” (just down the street from Lowbrow) this coming Sunday, October 19 from 9 am. to 5 pm.
The seminar on the 27th is free of charge but participants need to register at the following website as space is limited.
