World Renowned Film Instructor Dov Simens To Teach 2-day Film School In Miami

The creator of the Hollywood Film Institute, Dov Simens, will be offering his highly acclaimed 2-Day Film School on August 25th and 26th in Miami , Florida . The class, which has been attended and praised by some of the industry's elite, will take place at the Doubletree Hotel Coconut Grove between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. "After taking Dov's course, I made She's Gotta Have It and launched my career," said American film director/producer/writer/actor Spike Lee. Dov's students have made over 400 films, which have totaled more than six billion dollars in box office revenue. Past attendees of his 2-day film school, in addition to Lee, have included Robert Rodriguez, Quentin Tarantino, and Guy Ritchie. The event is hosted by Women in Film and Television-Florida (WIFT-FL), in association with Florida's Future Filmmakers. Sponsors of the event include G-Star School of the Arts for Motion Pictures & Broadcasting, The Governor's Office of Film & Entertainment, Miami/Dade County Office of Film & Entertainment and The City of Miami Beach/Office of Film and Event Production Management. Jennifer Pennypacker, President of WIFT-FL, sees it as a great opportunity for anyone serious about the film business. "Whether you are currently in the business, trying to break in, or just curious about how feature films get made, this course will be eye-opening for anyone who attends." The course tackles the entire filmmaking process from start to finish with Dov's famous 38 steps as the heart of the course. "For every feature film, whether your budget is $10,000 or $100 million, you are going to write thirty-eight checks," says Simens. "The 2-Day film school takes you through each one of those steps, explains the nuts and bolts and shows you how to complete a feature film for a small budget." The course also tackles subjects outside of the production of feature film, including securing investment, marketing and distribution, the film festival circuit, and much more.  The cost of the 2-Day course is $389.00, with discount rates for members of WIFT- Florida, Florida's Future Filmmakers, and Film Florida. The Doubletree Hotel Coconut Grove is also offering a discounted rate of $109 per night for all attendees of the event.

GLCC Building Plans. Trouble with Tarragon?

This is our first, but by no means our last, communication with you concerning the new building and our relationship with Tarragon. The Board of Directors is very committed to ensuring the future of the GLCC, which includes overseeing the new building project. With that, please be aware that Tarragon Corporation, our current real estate development partner, has reported on its poor financial performance and future outlook. Several months ago the GLCC retained additional legal counsel and proactively engaged Tarragon in negotiations for the GLCC to complete the building project independent of them. While the GLCC is somewhat protected from Tarragon's current vulnerability, the situation is not risk-free. We are weighing options carefully and are extremely optimistic about our strategy to further protect our interests. Please know that we have a team of carefully selected leaders from the community and highly experienced legal counsel working diligently on our behalf. We will keep you updated in as much detail as possible, given the sensitivity of our negotiations. As always, we are grateful for your continued support. -Paul Hyman
