LSFF & The Frontline Club present Digital Bootcamp Deluxe

Posted on

Digital Bootcamp Deluxe returns to where it all began: The Frontline Club on Friday 11 Jan at 2pm as part of the tenth London Short Film Festival.

January 11, 2013, 2pm

Feeling overwhelmed about social media and all things digital? Then Digital Bootcamp is here to show you how to create a manageable strategy and use available tools to get your films made and seen. 

You will learn how to reach and engage audiences in new and exciting ways, and you will learn how to measure the impact of your endeavours. This lecture and workshop is designed to help filmmakers navigate the risks and opportunities afforded by the web. It covers best social media practice, building an audience before a film is completed, crowd funding, DIY distribution techniques and more.

As well as a formal presentation by ex Shooting People and Edinburgh International Film Festival (2011) chief James Mullighan, this special edition has an extended networking session, and a live workshop of six diverse participants’ projects.

1.Digital Frontiers – Why is all this important? What’s new – in funding, crowdsourcing, production, marketing, audience-engagement, and sales and distribution.

2.Digital Strategy – How to design a website and social media campaign for your film. How social media and technology can help you, and how you can help yourself, stay on top of new developments and opportunities.

3.Crowdsourcing and crowd funding – Using case studies, the seminar will ask: What is the difference? Who are the players? What makes a good crowd funding campaign, from the fundraising trailer to the length of time, the amount you are seeking to raise and your social media strategy to solicit donations? How to make a crowd funding campaign fit into the wider web campaign for your film?

Once you have booked your place, you can submit your film application to be workshopped by the group. There are only a limited number of spaces for projects. Please send them via email to: with ‘Digital Bootcamp Submission’ in the subject field.
