Filmmaking Workshop: Scene Production
Reviewed by Deborah Choi Flores on 2/14/2020
I'm so incredibly happy that I found Pitch to Screen! What Al has done to make filmmaking education available to everyone and anyone is incredible! I just attended a filmmaking essentials workshop and had such a wonderful experience. We each took on a role in the production crew, learned about each other's roles, and worked together to film an actual scene! Al was extremely kind and you could definitely tell that he just wants to share his passion for filmmaking. He encouraged participants to ask questions and explained what he was doing every step of the way so that we could understand why certain things were being done. I can't wait for the next workshop!!! Thanks, Al and Pitch to Screen!!

Today's workshop was awesome. So much information and truly a hands-on learning environment packed into just three hours. I've never experienced a better class. Al and his team were wonderful, patient and knowledgeable about filming and all tech aspects. I feel closer to seeing my script and my goals within the industry come to life. Look forward to the next workshop and don't miss it!
