EL PROJECT-A-THON RUMBO A LA REPUBLICA DOMINICANA, PARA CIENASTAS LOCALES QUE DESEAN AVANZAR  EN SU CARRERA Y CONVERSACIONES CON MARIA CONCHITA ALONSO

El primer Project-A-Thon Internacional, presentado por NALIP-DR & Florida Media Market (FMM), se celebrará en Santo Domingo desde este jueves 23 de Agosto al 25, en las instalaciones de la Fundación Global Democracia y Desarrollo (FUNGLODE), institución que apoya al capítulo Dominicano de NALIP (National Association of Latino Independent Producers) y auspicia la actividad.  Este mega-evento contará con la asistencia de la estelar actriz venezolana María Conchita Alonso, quien estará dando su apoyo a los representantes del Project-A-Thon mediante charlas y entrevistas, así como a través de un interesante ACTOR’S STUDIO, para todos los DR Nalipsters y el público en general.

Este Maratón de proyectos o Project-A-Thon, conformado por directores, productores y escritores, contribuirá al desarrollo de las carreras de cine y televisión de los cineastas dominicanos, llevando los proyectos participantes desde una idea hasta la realidad, con la ayuda de profesionales establecidos en el campo de Cine, Televisión y Documental.  Los participantes recibirán ayuda en sus presentaciones y proyectos de Maritza Guimet, productora  y fundadora del FMM; Adriana Bosch, Presidenta del FMM y documentalista reconocida internacionalmente por sus documentales para American Experience; y Frances Lausell productora de cine y televisión y presidente del capitulo de Puerto Rico de NALIP. “Del ámbito local, nos acompañarán instructores de guión, productores independientes, escritores y representantes de agencias de talento, entre otros”, comentó en Santo Domingo, Carmen María Grullón, Presidenta del capítulo NALIP-DR.

Los participantes aprenderán a “acelerar” los proyectos tomando un punto de vista orientado hacia los negocios, pero al mismo tiempo creativo, para las finazas, producción, mercadeo y distribución de sus películas. Los temas incluirán: presupuestos, técnicas de negociación, cómo prepararse para una sesión de pitching  (presentación), cómo estructurar un acuerdo, problemas corporativos que los cineastas deberían evitar y otros interesantes tópicos relacionados con la industria.

Los participantes del Taller de Desarrollo de Proyectos, Project-A-Thon, podrán poner a prueba sus conocimientos en la conferencia del Florida Media Market este Octubre próximo, en Miami. Por primera vez en la historia de la Florida, este evento dará la oportunidad a directores, escritores y productores locales e internacionales a presentar, discutir y enseñar sus proyectos a ejecutivos de alto nivel de reconocidos estudios de cine, compañías de producción y estaciones de televisión.

“El Project-A-Thon es, en pocas palabras, una mini versión de lo que pasará este otoño en la Conferencia Anual del Florida Media Market,” dijo Maritza Guimet, fundadora del Project-A-Thon y del FMM. La conferencia del Florida Media Market tendrá lugar desde el 18 al 21 de Octubre en el Alexander Hotel en Miami Beach.
