Over the years, Intervention has expanded its scope to include creators beyond the webcomic world. This year, we’re bringing in lots of indie filmmakers and storytellers to share their experiences with you, and we’d like to introduce you to just a few of them today!
Jabraan Ismail is the director of the award-winning documentary We Wanna Make a Movie, which has been lauded at many film festivals. He’s also had a hand in work for Hallmark Television, the American Cancer Society, and LLP Productions, as well as the feature films Elf-Man and Exists. He’ll be at Intervention 6 to share experiences from his seven years of production work and national travel for film, commercials, and more to help you step into the world of filmmaking!
Filmmaker and producer Michael C. Dougherty is the president and co-founder of Big Damn Films, the makers of the popular fan film Browncoats: Redemption. BDF’s films go the extra mile in crowdfunding, charity fundraising, and raising awareness of causes: the aforementioned Browncoats: Redemption raised over $117,000 for charity. His next film, Z*Con, promises to accomplish the same. Michael will be at Intervention to help you learn what it takes to get your work seen, raise awareness of causes, and leverage social media to promote your work.
Writer and producer Mary Ratliff is a highly experienced writer and director, having had a hand in short films, a webseries, commercials, and more. Her production company, Nine Hour Films, has released many projects, included the recently completed Good Game, a documentary following professional gamers. She, too, has found creative and innovative ways to use the Internet and social media to bring attention to her work, including screenings on Twitch.tv and participation in the first Humble Bundle to include films. And she’s ready to help you learn to do the same!
There are still more guests to spotlight before the con. Keep an eye out to see who’s ready to meet you at Intervention and help you learn to make your creative projects soar!
