RESOURCES FOR FILMMAKERS
I’d love to connect you to resources that will help you make your work! Here are some to get you started. Remember, for those of you from historically underrepresented demographics behind the camera, it is your civic duty to find a way to make your stories by any means necessary and get them to audiences who desperately need to see and hear them. Don’t wait. Do it.
If you ever forget why it is so vitally important that you tell your stories, allow me to remind you.
Throughout Summer 2020, Naomi will be teaching an in-person class for filmmakers through the Atlanta Film Society. Through the course of 3 months, she will share practical "how to make a micro-budget film" information that it took her two years of begging people for coffee dates to learn when she was making Imagine I'm Beautiful. You can sign up for all of the classes or do them as one-offs. If you are interested and live in or around the Atlanta area, details can be found below.
