Self-Producing

Don’t wait for the perfect opportunity to come along; make it happen!

Instructor: Sasha Eden (Actor, Producer, and Co-Founder of WET Productions)
July 16, 12:00pm – 5:00pm

Countless artists from Lisa Kron to Lin Manuel Miranda to Anna Deveare Smith have at some point in their careers fulfilled their own artistic journeys by producing their own work, allowing them to create life changing, socially impactful artistic productions that challenged the status quo and changed the way we live in the world.

In this 5-hour intensive, producer and actor Sasha Eden will demystify the "how" of producing your own work, including discovering your voice and source material, engaging in successful collaborations, creating a healthy budget, designing mutually beneficial partnerships, building achievable production calendars, and identifying effective and creative fundraising techniques. The class will provide an overview of artistic producing that reinforces good instincts, prepares for inevitable challenges, and supports artists to produce from a place of joy, creativity, strength, and possibility. With twenty years of experience acting in and producing innovative, mission-driven original content in all mediums, Sasha will provide you with the insight, inspiration, tools, and techniques that have been tested in her own processes.
