WorkBench: Filmmaker Intensive

August 06, 2024 - August 10, 2024

In 2022, WorkBench: Filmmaker Intensive became a new Northern Light Opera Company project. Led by a professional filmmaker from Los Angeles, aspiring filmmakers are challenged to create a story, then film, direct and edit the newly created work. Cameras are provided. Folks around town might be intrigued if a camera person is spotted filming in some unusual spaces. These movies go from idea to reality to a viewing by an audience in just three days. The workshop will be Aug. 6-10. The public is invited to the Filmmaker’s Showcase at 7 p.m. Aug. 10 at the Armory. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota, through a grant from the Region 2 Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
