Title of Event: Mini master-class with Lloyd Kaufman of Troma Entertainment

Join us for a mini master-class, Q&A and book signing with Lloyd Kaufman, founder of Troma Entertainment and author of the new Produce Your Own Damn Movie!

In Produce Your Own Damn Movie, Kaufman shares his experience and gems of wisdom regarding the best ways to seek out investors, scout locations, hire crew and cast talent, navigate legalities, and stay within your budget. Filled with candid interviews, tips, and tricks-of-the-trade throughout the book, PYODM! reveals the secrets of producing a low-budget independent film. Covering everything about production from the initial movie idea, all the way through pre-production and up to the first day of principal photography (including budget concerns to production-damaging acts of God), you’ll get the inside scoop to producing your own damn movie.

Lloyd Kaufman is one of the very few genuine auteur filmmakers. He has written, produced, and/or directed 25 films including The Toxic Avenger, Terror Firmer, Tromeo and Juliet, and Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead. Kaufman is president of the world-famous Troma Entertainment, the oldest, and arguably, the longest-running truly independent film studio in history. He is also the president of IFTA (Independent Film & Television Alliance), whose members produce more than 400 independent films and countless hours of television programming each year and generate more than $4 billion in distribution revenues annually.
