The Power of Screenings

Taught By:

Joey Scoma


Feature documentary editor Kevin Klauber walks us through how to hold screenings of your projects, and why screenings are important.

Lesson Plan

Whether you’re an accomplished filmmaker, or just getting started in film school, every filmmaker will make some questionable decisions in the creative process. Everyone can misjudge how their film will actually impact an audience... In fact, making bad decisions is often part of the process!
However, learning from these bad decisions and correcting course is how we become better storytellers. This video is about taking the time to learn what's working in your film (and what's not) by screening your work.

Want to screen your work, but aren't sure who to share it with? Come check out the "Critique Me!" section in our forums. Or ask us any questions you may have by hitting "Discuss This Lesson."
