FULL DAY WORKSHOP Ashlee Jensen and Terrance Young are a Producer/Director Team and Co- Owners of Mad Anth'm Productions: a Sunshine Coast based film production company. 

After producing their first feature film, the Australian Drama 500 Miles, they took it around the world to various International Film Festivals. As well as winning multiple awards for the film they secured distribution in the form of DVD and VOD in Australia, New Zealand, the U.S and UK. 

Following this they began writing their next feature, the Sci-Fi/Thriller Project Eden with the ambition to shoot it in the U.S with mainstream actors. This past September they completed Principal Photography on the film in Minneapolis, Minnesota after attaining finance through private investors here in Australia. 

Their success came from two key elements. DRIVE and DETERMINATION. These Christmas Holidays, Mad-Anth'm has decided to share the knowledge of their ongoing success by organising a "101 Filmmaking Workshop" for people who, like them in the beginning, are looking to break into writing, directing and/or producing but are unsure of where to start. 

The professional eclectic perspectives includes Producer and actor Sallyanne Ryan who had her first role alongside Eric Bana, and special guest multi-award winning Director Chris Sun who will share his knowledge of gaining film distribution. 

This is a great opportunity to advance your own knowledge of how to develop a script and get your film made. 

Learn the tricks of the trade from Character Development, Story Structure, Directing Choices and On-Set Etiquette in a small and supportive practical classroom environment.
