Haven’t you been itching to get your hands on Red?! That’s what you all told us at last year’s Conference evaluation. Well, it’s here! Only at Conference 9! Cinematographer Ricardo Gale brings it down for a demonstration, and hands-on workshop, while his partner Sean Buck discusses all of your post-production workflow questions.
Sunday we host AVID in a great technical workshop for the independent filmmaker. Learn how you, too, can put it to use in your laptop. Find out how AVID jumped into the Latino indie field at the 2007 Latino Producers Academy™, delivering top-notch work on an indie’s budget. And preview some of their newest programs and tools.

Funding for Indie Productions: Linking Independents and Co-Producing Stations
LINCS from Independent Television Service (ITVS) provides completion funding in the form of matching funds up to $100,000 for collaborations between public TV stations and indie producers. Projects must already be in production as evidenced by a work-in-progress tape of at least five minutes. LINCS is looking for documentaries and innovative genre combinations. Only single shows of standard broadcast length (26:40 or 56:40) are eligible - no series. Programs should stimulate civic discourse and find innovative ways to explore regional, cultural, political, social or economic issues. Indie film and videomakers are encouraged to seek collaborations with their local public TV stations. Deadline: May 30, 2008
