L.A. Filmmakers Get Tools To Create their Own Ads in Free One-Day Workshop

MOFILM is serving up a free, one-of-a-kind opportunity for budding filmmakers and commercial directors next weekend in Los Angeles. In a one-day workshop on Saturday November 12 and another on Sunday November 13, participants will be given all the materials they need to shoot and edit their own web video ad for a top-name brand partner. You’ve seen it done on “The Apprentice,” now come do it for yourself, and compete to win an HD camera. The workshops are free to friends of Showbiz, but only the first 100 to sign up will be able to attend.

There will be experts on hand at the workshop, not only to guide the participants but to judge the finished spots in a screening at the end of the day. Not only will winners receive HD cameras of their own, but the winning spot for all LA will score two tickets to the South By Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival in Austin, TX – complete with air, hotel and VIP treatment.

Judges at previous events have included the producers of Avatar, Iron Man and Pretty Woman. The event will be held at Showbiz Store & Cafe, and organized by USC and Chapman University Associate Prof. Frank Chindamo.

The name brand will be revealed on the day of each event. Participants will then be handed a brief, a camera and a laptop to get to work on their original spots.

Space is limited: only the first 100 to sign up will be admitted to the event. Register today for November 12 or November 13.

Takes place at: Showbiz Store & Cafe, 500 S. Sepulveda Blvd., Los Angeles 90049
