$10,000 Film Grants are available to make your short film this summer
An exciting opportunity for filmmakers ready to take their craft to the next level -- the Liberty Lab for Film.
Go to http://talnexus.com/llf to learn more and apply NOW!
The Liberty Lab for Film (or LLF) is an advanced program from Taliesin Nexus, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, for those who have filmmaking, screenwriting, and/or producing experience and want an opportunity to work alongside liberty-minded creatives under the guidance of seasoned professionals such as Daniel Knauf, (co-executive producer, NBC's The Blacklist) Adam Simon (creator of the FOX series Salem) and screenwriter David H. Steinberg (American Pie 2) in developing, writing, filming and editing your short film or web series idea.
If you and your treatment are selected, you will receive a grant for $10,000 to fund your project and be paired with an established industry professional who will mentor you through a 100 day process. At the conclusion, TalNexus will host a gala showcase screening in Los Angeles where your film will premiere along with your fellow LLF participants' projects.
For 100 days, you will experience an intensive process that is not unlike what filmmakers in Hollywood must contend with: a rigorous development process, valuable collaboration, working within a budget, and notes & feedback from your mentor and the network. This is not for the faint of heart. You and your partners will be responsible for producing a high quality film.
To submit, all you need is a one-page treatment of your story idea for a short film or web-series that touches on some aspect of liberty. Taliesin Nexus is committed to helping storytellers, who share a passion for human freedom and diversity, succeed in their entertainment career.
Go to http://talnexus.com/llf to learn more about the program, the application process, and what to expect when you are selected into the program.
Applications are being accepted NOW and you have until April 15, 2016 to submit.
