Inaugural Directing Workshop receives Rave Reviews from Participating Filmmakers
From April 25-28, the Moving Picture Institute produced its first directing workshop. We designed this invitation-only seminar as an exclusive opportunity for up-and-coming writer/directors in our network. In particular, we invited promising alumni of MPI programs and screenwriting workshops, as well as filmmakers who are already green-lit to direct MPI original projects in 2019. Two of those projects included forthcoming MPI Original shorts A Piece of Cake and The Perfect One.
