These two organizations are the top two membership-based organizations in the state. Their mission statements both involve advocating for and educating our crew, and promoting the state as a film and media-production destination. For more information, see links below.
F3 is a collaboration between the two largest pro-industry groups in the state of Florida; Women in Film and Television- FL and Film Florida.
Professionals, hobbyists, and newbies alike have a lot to learn about the business. Technology is constantly evolving, gear is improving, laws and legal are always adapting, every media-maker out there needs to stay on top of the trends and protocol. F3 is designed to do just that by hosting panels in myriad aspects of the business to keep you productive, safe, on trend, and WORKING!
F3 kicked off in 2017 and hosted panels with professionals working in those fields. The design of the sessions is not for you to just sit and take notes, you may have specific questions or problems and an online tutorial just doesn't make the cut when you have the specialist right in front of you to answer those questions. Panels included: Drone Safety and Regulations, The Business of Acting, Post-Production Color and Sound, Legal, Contracts, and Insurance, Safety and Protocol, Pitching, Funding, and Distribution, even panels on obtaining your soundtrack and formatting your story. We try to provide the information you need that may not have been covered in film school, or that you need to know to make your way in the ever-evolving media jungle. Click below to see this year's lineup.
The demo floor will have hands-on tutorials from the makers, manufacturers, and professionals using the equipment or programs. Filmotechnic USA will have its Russian Arm available, Precision Aerial will have a drone op demo, First Production RVs will have a production MoHo for you to tour, and the list keeps growing every day.
Orange Technical College- Mid-Town Campus has the largest for-rent Motion Capture stage on the east coast. They will provide registrants with a Motion Capture tutorial where the attendees actually operated the camera with a live mo-cap artist and instant streaming on a 'world' built just for us. They also provide registrants with a VR experience where you are fully engulfed in the experience in custom VR and gaming chairs. Truly not to be missed.
Registration is now open with panelists listed here, on Women in Film and Film Florida social media, and other sponsor sites. Members of WIFT and FF receive discounted rates, and we suggest registering early as the panels do fill up. To see the 2019 lineup, click here:
