Join us for a series of panels designed to help all the moving parts of production communicate most efficiently with one another: from the people who work in them. Designed for filmmakers, but helpful to writers, actors, and all aspects of production, we will discuss, one department at a time, how to speak the same language and get the most from your working relationships.
