The amateurs will be given an opportunity to show off their work to the film world after a nine-month in-depth acquaintance at the famed Hollywood studio.
The beginning class will have five filmmakers. Participants will team up with a Warner Bros. executive mentor as they work through the entire film production process, from pitch to final cut to the big screen. The studio will start accepting applications next month and hopes to have the workshop up and running by the end of the third quarter.
“Our emerging film directors workshop continues Warner Bros.’ commitment to being the industry’s most talent-focused studio,” said Greg Silverman, Warner Bros.’ president of creative development and worldwide production.
Once they have a final screenplay, filmmakers will work with physical production to prep, create a budget, cast, shoot on the lot and edit with a full post-production process. Warner Bros. will cover all production expenses as well as salary for filmmakers for the duration of the workshop.
