National Association of Latino Independent Producers (NALIP)
2007 Latino Producers Academy™
August 7 – 17, 2007 Tucson, AZ
Application Deadline – Monday June 11
A NALIP National Signature Program, in association with the UCLA School of Theater, Film and TV Professional Certificate Program and the University of Arizona Department of Media Arts, Univision, the Rockefeller Foundation, Time Warner, Nielsen Media Research and the Hanson Film Institute
NALIP believes that a Producer is the creative originator of films, a self-starter who recognizes ideas that have creative or commercial merit. Producers must have passion, sensitivity for story and audience, plus the organizational ability and practical smarts to put together a project then guide it to and through the marketplace. NALIP’s Latino Producers Academy™ provides our Fellows the practical skills and knowledge to accomplish their personal goals and realize their artistic dreams as filmmakers.
The 2007 LPA Invites Applications from Narrative Feature Producers in two categories:
• Feature producers (including producer/directors or producer/writers) with projects in early stages of development that have viable scripts ready for packaging and advancement towards production; prior NALIP program participants must have advanced drafts.
• Feature producers and their directors who have scripts in advanced stages of development with or ready to package (e.g. budget, executive summary, attachments, etc.); prior NALIP program participants must have advanced drafts.
The 2007 LPA Invites Applications from Documentary Producers in two categories:
• Documentary producer/directors with projects in development or production who have proposals and sample tapes, are invited with their producer/director partners
• Documentary producers with projects in post-production, who have rough cuts, are invited with their editors.
The 2007 LPA includes hands-on practicum for Producers at all stages of their professional development. Documentaries in post-production will have opportunities to re-cut and score sequences with intensive mentoring on their rough cuts and completion plans. Feature projects with directors will work with crews and casts to rehearse, shoot, cut and score scenes from their upcoming production. Documentary and Feature projects in development will benefit from comprehensive skills development with an opportunity to return with a rough cut or director in a future year.
This program is competitive and highly selective. It is open exclusively to NALIP members, and only to filmmakers with produced work on which they played a key creative role. All Accepted Fellows are invited on full scholarship: materials, lodging, meals and local transportation provided by our supporters, plus honoraria for documentary editors.
Applications are evaluated by a professional panel that considers the viability of each project, the type and quality of your prior work, your creative plans and commitment to a career in producing & media leadership, plus your potential to benefit from the Academy curriculum and opportunity.
