How do you conceive, plan, create, and shoot a TV show? And what do you do with it after that?
Producer Alison Mao (NYU Tisch film school grad) and jack-of-all-trades team Alex Kipp and Robert Weinstein (a couple of clowns from the Midwest by way of Ecole Lecoq in Paris) will screen the hilarious 26-minute pilot they shot for their TV show "Man of the People" and present a case study, explaining how they went about it, the challenges they encountered, and what they learned along the way. There will be plenty of time for Q&A and networking at the end.

FILM+VIDEO SHOW & TELL provides a forum for local and independent filmmakers and video artists to share and discuss their work and ideas. Each month we'll screen one or more works and then circle up for an intimate conversation with the artists or guest speaker. We'll focus on "art" films, both abstract and and narrative, primarily by local filmmakers but with a mix of hard-to-find foreign classics, and new documentaries.
This group is open to and for both film lovers and film/video artists. In fact, we really want you guys to bring films (your own or work by others that you want to support) to us that you would like us to screen.
