Systems change is the new buzzword in the non-profit and advocacy group realm. Changing the way things are for the better is the end goal for all of the organizations supported by BHC. The 2-day workshop, held at the SCUSD Serna Center, aimed to help organization leaders hone in their focus on key problems. It also gave the leaders a chance to network and collaborate to find solutions for common problems.
Film and television production is a “team sport”. Efficient planning, selecting the right cast and crew, knowing how to pull many schedules together, and a thousand other questions must be addressed to complete even a short movie. How do you find “good people”? How do you know a skilled tech from a beginner? What “do’s and don’ts” should you concern yourself with on-set? Production scheduling? Craft services? Liability insurance? Permits? HELP!
Nate Schemel is an experienced field producer in TV and film production. He was the lead producer on HGTV and DIY Network’s “Turf War”. Additionally, he is the co-founder of the Sacramento Film and Music Festival. In four, Saturday 4-hour sessions he will help you prepare. Whether you are just beginning and need to know very basic information or perhaps you are skilled but in a narrow field and need a better understanding of the “big picture”, this is the class for you. This short course will be primarily simple demonstration and lecture designed to walk potential filmmakers through the film production process. Learn the problem solving skills necessary to be a successful film producer and director. Excellent preparation for the local 10 x 10 Filmmaker Challenge, Sac Music Seen, 48-Hour, and Place Called Sacramento, film festivals.

The Sacramento Press has another first-time workshop presenter for September: KXTV News10 Reporter George Warren with Warren’s workshop: “Video Storytelling Tips and Shortcuts.” The workshop will be from 6:30 – 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 22, at The Sacramento Press office.
Warren will discuss how to produce memorable stories with minimum time and effort. Warren will go over how to do more (interviewing, shooting and editing videos) with less – a staff of one. Warren just celebrated his 30th anniversary as an Emmy-winning reporter & multimedia journalist with KXTV News10.
