Hey, I’m speaking on a panel this weekend at CIMMcon in Chicago (the industry conference portion of CIMMfest). The panel is called “Constructive Feedback for Filmmakers (and Other Artists Too!): How to Ask For it and What to Do With It.” I’m a huge fan of getting feedback on scripts through table reads and staged readings, as well as getting feedback on rough cuts, so this should be fun.
Here’s the panel description:
Every Artist has to learn how to get feedback that actually helps their project, not just their ego. This interactive workshop teaches participants how to ask for and give constructive creative input at two critical stages of filmmaking: the script and the rough cut. Award-winning filmmaker and theater producer Keaton Wooden will discuss project feedback with filmmakers Erica Avery and Robert Carter, who participated in IFP Chicago’s intensive Screenwriter’s Workshop. Carter recently completed filming the script from the workshop and the group will put their new-found skills to the test during a live rough cut feedback session. While this panel focuses on film projects, artists of every discipline can apply this approach to their own work.
Full event details are here at the IFP/Chicago site.
I'm putting together a comprehensive course to teach actors how to produce short films and web series. Sign up to be notified of when it launches.
