Registration is now open: One-day intensive workshop on the business of financing and producing your film with Nick Quested
Saturday, August 16, 10AM-4PM

On August 16, Nick Quested, noted director, producer and Executive Director of Goldcrest, will lead a day-long workshop at Goldcrest on the business of financing and producing your film. Nick, who has produced many award-winning movies (
RestrepoVanishing on 7th Street and (The Art of Getting By) and directed over 100 videos (Nas, Dr. Dre, Trick Daddy, Sting, Puffy, DMX) and commercials, will share tips on getting started in the film business.  

He will then spend time breaking down the mechanics of getting your documentary or feature film funded and into production. As Nick says, “filmmaking means making films,” and he will explain exactly how that is done. Finally, as owner of Goldcrest Post, one of NYC’s most important post-production facilities and and the neophyte Saboteur Media, Nick will explain in detail how to get your film out there. This will include self-distribution and building a campaign around yourself and your movie. Learn more about Nick here.
