The Indie Film: From Development to Distribution with Nicholas Gyeney

Every film school in the country strives to give its students the tools and knowledge to MAKE a film, but there is also one fundamental flaw that film schools share: They don't give you the tools you need to get a film MADE. For actors and filmmakers alike, finding success in the film industry is not how it used to be. Landing the career making audition, or being offered that big film right out of the gate is not something you can count on. In today's film industry, you have to make things happen for yourself.
 
USC Film Graduate and Seattle filmmaker Nicholas Gyeney invites those interested in learning the world of financing, packaging, pitching, and project development to take part in a course that aims to give filmmakers, actors, and aspiring industry professionals the tools and knowledge to construct films from the ground up to be both creative and marketable to an international audience.
 
Topics covered in The Art and the Industry include: Screenplay development, budgeting, business plan development, pitching, the world of financing, the film festival circuit, and distribution. When you leave this course, you'll be ready to go out there and get your independent film made!
 
Please note: This course is recommended for students with some prior knowledge or experience with screenwriting and/or filmmaking.

Deadline to register for this class is Thursday, July 31 at 5:00pm, pending available space.

August 4 - September 18
Mondays and Thursdays, 3:00pm - 5:00pm
Exceptions: Additional class on Wednesday, September 17 3:00pm-5:00pm
$550 Discounted Price
$650 Full Price

Nicholas Gyeney (ge•nie [jee-nee]) Seattle born, Nicholas immersed himself into the world of cinema following the death of his father. At 19, a student at USC, Nicholas began work on an ultra-low budget feature called “The Falling.” After a successful Seattle premiere, the film found distribution and paved a road for Nicholas to establish relationships with many of the industry’s most successful professionals.  Since graduating from USC's film school, Nicholas has written, produced, and directed two award-winning theatrically released independent films: “The Penitent Man,” which has been highly acclaimed for its unique structure and style, stars Lance Henriksen (Aliens), and Andrew Keegan (10 Things I Hate About You). The dark comedy “Matt’s Chance,” stars Edward Furlong (Terminator 2: Judgment Day), Lee Majors (The Six Million Dollar Man), Margot Kidder (Superman), and Gary Busey (Lethal Weapon). Both films are available in DVD and streaming.  With several new films in development, Nicholas continues to sharpen his abilities as a filmmaker while quickly establishing himself as one of the industry's top young directors in the Northwest.

Freehold's Ensemble Training Intensive 2014-2015

Applications are available now: Applications to audition must be received by May 27th, 2014.
Auditions on June 4th.
http://www.freeholdtheatre.org/events/2014/06/04/ensemble-training-intensive-applications-available

Freehold’s Ensemble Training Intensive (ETI) will return in Fall 2014, offering the only independent 10-month certificate program for dedicated adult actors in the Pacific Northwest. Our central aim is the development of core acting skills that are as delicate as they are vital, and too often overlooked. These skills will be taught by a celebrated and uniquely qualified faculty.

The Ensemble Training Intensive was created for the serious student who is ready to commit to the next level artistically and professionally. The curriculum focuses on developing the skills necessary to meet the technical demands of classical text and extraordinary contemporary material.

We limit the class size to 16 students and offer group and tutorial sessions. The course work is focused on:

*Opening up the artist’s access to natural inspiration, and availability to the life of the moment.
*Expanding their imaginative and transformational powers.
*Honing their physical and vocal powers via detailed anatomical discovery, development, practice, and conscious expression.
*Preparing the artist for many paths such as working as a professional, further study, or preparing as a teacher. It is a solid launching pad for the next step.

The Courses

The curriculum includes dramatic action, movement, stage combat, voice and speech, solo performance development and production, classical verse structure and performance, auditioning and self-promotion, acting for film, and other special topics.

Performances

Substantial, unique, and ensured performance opportunities at ETI will include public Solo Performances, Shakespeare Scenes, a Professional Showcase for invited industry professionals, and culminates in the development and performance of a Shakespeare play that will perform in Seattle, and tour to the non-traditional sites of Freehold’s Engaged Theatre Program.

The Instructors

The ETI faculty includes some of Seattle’s most treasured performing artists, many of whom are working professionals with many years of excellence in their field in addition to their teaching experience. We have experienced that the integration of skills, encountered by the ensemble growing together, results in exponential growth.

Our Faculty includes Spectrum Dance Theater’s world-renowned Artistic Director Donald Byrd will teach Movement for Actors; Author and Master Teacher of the Alexander Technique Cathy Madden; Freehold’s celebrated Artistic Director Robin Lynn Smith and Andrew McGinn who is a Juilliard graduate, former Blue Man, and Broadway veteran will teach Acting; Seattle Shakespeare Company and New Century Theatre Company’s Amy Thone will lead their training in Shakespeare; prized filmmaker John Jacobsen will teach Acting for Film; vaunted independent artist Marya Sea Kaminski will guide students through the development and production of unique solo performances; esteemed playwright, director, and actor Rebecca Tourino will teach diction; Keira McDonald, Master of Lecoq-based actor created theater will teach movement; Certified Teacher, Fight Director, and Fight Master with The Society of American Fight Directors Geof Alm will teach stage combat and highly acclaimed actor Christine Marie Brown will be teaching Auditioning and directing the showcase.

The Participants

The program is designed for artists who are ready to take on the rigor and responsibility of this technical intensive that involves 30 hours a week in class and ensemble rehearsal, as well as individual practice and preparation time.

Quarter 1: September 1 - December 16, 2014
Quarter 2: January 12 - April 27, 2015

Playwriting I: Point of View with Rebecca Tourino at Freehold Theatre

A good play is a succinct, powerful argument for the playwright’s point of view – a singular vision that’s both compelling and self-revealing. If you’re drawn to dramatic writing, you’ve got something important to say (although you may not know yet what it is). This practicum is designed to 1) excavate your point of view; 2) hone it; and 3) share it as fearlessly as possible. As ours is a collaborative art form, we’ll also learn how to generously respond to new work in order to support all artists in process on their own terms. By the course’s end, you’ll have a notebook of fresh material, a dozen new jumping-off points for dramatic writing, and – best of all – an articulable point of view to guide you forward.

April 27 – June 29
Sundays, 6:00 – 9:00 pm
$340 Discounted
$410 Full Price
Tuition is based on household income
Note: No class May 11 or June 15
