Center of Communication presented Make Your Own Man Movie! Master Class last night at the School of Visual Arts theatre and was met by an overflowing crowd of young film students and fans ready to learn a thing or two from the Legendary Filmmaker himself, Lloyd Kaufman. The disappointed folks who were turned away threatened to Occupy Tromaville, but Kaufman quelled their hunger to learn by agreeing to an encore. Keep an eye on www.troma.com for upcoming dates and locations.
Kaufman has presented his master class at Yale University, Oxford University, Imperial College in London, St. Petersberg Film Museum, and many other institutions, spreading inspiration and enlightenment.
Here’s what past attendees had to say:
*”Thanks again for such a terrific workshop day. I really don’t think I’ve ever laughed so much on one day at St. Hilda’s!”- *Professor, Oxford University
*”Lloyd’s Master Class not only sparks the interest and attention of young and independent filmmakers, but Lloyd also gives insight into the distribution process which many young filmmakers tend to neglect the importance of.”- *Film Program Director, Full Sail College
“*The Make Your Own Damn Movie Master Class by Lloyd Kaufman was extraordinary! It was certainly a great addition to our Film Festival and we were very fortunate to have it. Everyone loved the Master Class and learned a lot from it. The Master Class is now the talk of the town here in Phoenix.” – *Festival Coordinator, Horror and Sci Fi Festival
*“Lloyd Kaufman’s Master Class is a must for anyone interested in making low budget, independent films. Lloyd knows his subject from the inside out and he’s willing to share everything he knows with future movie makers. He’s an excellent teacher, using humor, wit and tales of his own adventures in film making to motivate his students and make his Master Class a very entertaining experience.” *-Professor, University of SouthFlorida
*”I really enjoyed the Make your Own Damn Movie masterclass!!!! Thank you so much for arranging it!” *- Film student
