The Filmmakers Lab

Welcome to The Filmmakers Lab, a unique experience that brings committed filmmakers together to get coaching and mentoring by industry professionals!
The Greenhouse has teamed up with Canon to create an exclusive filmmakers lab geared to equip, instruct, and mentor filmmakers in film production. Ideal participants will be filmmakers with a focus on producers, directors, cinematographers, and editors.
In each Wednesday evening lab, participants will be given the opportunity to receive coaching and mentoring by industry instructors who will take you deep into the key fundamentals, standards, and practices of filmmaking.
Participants will also get the hands-on opportunity to learn all the ins and outs of high-end Canon cameras and post-production equipment, with coaching from Canon’s on-site experts.
