David Fedele generally makes films as an independent one-person filmmaker; director, producer, cinematographer, editor and distributor. His films are produced totally “outside of the system”, and he adopts a unique “guerilla style” to his filmmaking- while still making films that are seen by wide audiences around the world.
Last week David gave a workshop at LOOP on “Making documentaries for social change”. In this next workshop, David will go deeper into his filmmaking methods and approach working alone as a one-person filmmaker. He will discuss all facets of the filmmaking process, from project inception through to distribution … including his recent experience in crowdfunding his latest film.
7:00pm – Intro & Screening of David’s film E-WASTELAND (20mins/2012), exploring the unregulated salvage and recycling of e-waste (electronic waste) in Ghana, West Africa.
7:30:pm – 9:00pm – Workshop
