Taking filmmaking competitions to the stratosphere, channelAustin introduces the iYouth Fusion Fest (iYFF) Filmmaking Bootcamp. Forget the 48-Hour Film Project this weeklong Bootcamp pairs industry professionals who share their expertise with youth crews – the result being a socially relevant film judged before a live studio audience at week’s end.
Elizabeth Avellan, Executive Producer and Co-Founder of Los Hooligans Productions with Robert Rodriquez, Visual Effects Producer Keefe Boerner, award-winning Screenwriter and Director Kat Candler, and Director Andrew Bujalski are part of this year's film production crew.
The Bootcamp culminates in a reality-style LIVE TV show where each of the crews premiere their creations before a panel of judges. Behind the scenes footage, testimonials and bloopers will be shown as well. The audience—whether in the studio or at home—will vote for their favorite film via Facebook. Winners will recieve $1,000.
