YSFF17 Workshop: Searching for Authenticity Crafting Your Approach to Short and Feature Filmmaking

Producing a film is often described as ‘putting out fires’ once production begins, but the strategies for putting a film together are formed with the director early in the development phase. In this workshop, we’ll go over ways of crafting a deliberate approach to casting, locations, and building the team with the intent of creating ‘authentic’ representations on screen.  

Monique Walton graduated from Yale University in 2004 and received her MFA in Film from the University of Texas at Austin in 2013. She has produced and directed numerous short documentary and narrative films, with a focus on racial identity and belonging. Her documentary film, Still Black, At Yale screened at over twenty international film festivals and educational conferences. She produced the short film SKUNK which won first prize in the Cinéfondation section at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. Her work also includes original web content for Nickjr.com, short documentaries for Doing Innovation commissioned by the Macarthur Foundation, fitness films for The Fit Cycle and the American Heart Association. Walton is a youth mentor in media skills training with the Black Media Council in Austin, TX, and she lends her talent to various non-profit and community based organizations. In 2015 Monique was a Berlinale Talents participant and received an Austin FIlm Society travel grant, and in 2015 she was a Producing Fellow and Silverman honoree at the Sundance Institute.
