As a presenting sponsor of the 26th annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival, lynda.com is delighted to put you in the front row of four fascinating panel discussions with some of Hollywood’s top filmmakers, including a number of Golden Globe, Emmy, Grammy, and Academy Award winners and nominees.
Moderated by the editorial director of Variety, Peter Bart, these six directors speak to the pressures of being on the “Oscar circuit” and the need to get back to work as soon as possible. Unusual for a group of nominated films, with the exception of Toy Story 3, these are all relatively low-budget films, ranging from one million to a high of $13 million. The directors speak to how not having a big budget to work with can make you more creative and keep you focused on the story.
This panel includes Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan), Charles Ferguson (Inside Job), Debra Granik (Winter’s Bone), Tom Hooper (The King’s Speech), David O. Russell (The Fighter), and Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3).
