When is Enough, Enough?

Event Description

The processes of film development, production and especially post-production can go on for what seems like forever. Nevertheless, everyone involved in the effort of bringing a film to the screen knows there's an optimal golden moment when the material sings – which hopefully also means satisfied audiences and overjoyed financiers. What does it take to find this anticipated sweet spot? How do we know when we've arrived? An Award winning writer, director, producer and editor will share their experiences to help shed light on and embrace the process of story development from script to screen and beyond.
