The Right Steps for a Successful
with Emmy-winning producer
Marilyn Ness (TRAPPED, CAMPERAPERSON)
Thursday, May 12th | 6:00pm
Finding a producer and establishing a successful working relationship is a huge asset for any film but how to go about finding the right person can be daunting. In this workshop, Marilyn Ness, a two-time Emmy Award-winning documentary film producer, shares her experience working with different directors including most recently, Dawn Porter and Kirsten Johnson whose films TRAPPED and CAMERAPERSON premiered at Sundance in January to critical acclaim. Marilyn will discuss how she has successfully navigated the tricky dance between producer and director from her perspective as someone who has worked on numerous documentary projects - projects ranging from high-profile, big-budget films to less well-known, low-budget productions.
