Making Low-Budget Independent Science Fiction Films

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Since 1999, cinematographer Matt Jacobson has shot three award-winning science fiction feature films with his creative partner, filmmaker Kevin Willmott. These films include the Sundance-favorite, alternate-history mockumentary CSA: Confederate States of America; the post-apocalyptic Western The Battle for Bunker Hill; and the controversial sci-fi satire Destination: Planet Negro! Matt also teaches film and media production at KU’s Oldfather Studios, where fifty years ago, director Herk Harvey made the classic independent horror film, Carnival of Souls. Using clips from all of these films, Matt will talk about how to create and shoot sci-fi on a budget- from coming up with ideas, to making your budget dollar count (especially if all you have IS a dollar!)

Matt will be joined by Mark Steven Grove for this panel. Mark is a Denver-based Filmmaker who has worked in the entertainment industry for over 25 years. Aside from being an accomplished Actor and Stunt Performer, it is his skills behind the camera that have established him as a true Renaissance Man. Gifted in all things action-related, Mr. Grove is a talented Fight Choreographer, Stunt Coordinator, Firearms Handler, Pyrotechnician, and Special Effects Supervisor who has utilized his skills in over 120 professional projects.
