Free Consulting Services for Filmmakers
The best way to learn about filmmaking is to make a film. The Film Lab is our one-stop consulting service to help navigate the filmmaking landscape. Understanding the complex system of financing, talent, negotiating sales, distribution and more, can be overwhelming to the point of paralyzing. And with filmmaking being a highly networking-based industry, junior artists often need help getting to know people.
From college seniors embarking on a capstone project to junior, entry-level artists looking to build their portfolio and experience, Film Freed is here to advise and help filmmakers through it all.
Sound Movement Film Series
Minneapolis has amazing dancers and we want the world to see it! Sound Movement is an ongoing film series exploring the essence of dance and features musical scoring from Minneapolis composers. For more than just dance enthusiasts, this series cross-pollinates local music, dance, art directors and film for an artistic meltingpot
Pop Up Movie Theater
Film Freed's Pop Up Movie Theater will provide an alternative, grassroots distribution method for Midwest filmmakers. Locally, the outdoor pop-up cinema can be rented by the filmmakers and the community but will visit cities and festivals across the U.S. to bring Midwest films to new audiences.
Music Composition for Film / TV
We will be teaching the art of studio music creation for motion pictures. Students will compose live to movies with the music removed or local films in need of composition. They will mix and master from theaters to headphones, home speakers to smartphones, and everything in between.
