Low Key Arts in Hot Springs to Offer Filmmaker Master Classes


In March, Low Key Arts in Hot Springs will be offering a series of Master Classes for filmmakers under the direction of Arkansas filmmaker Jen Gerber, who also serves as the Executive Director of Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival.

Perhaps one of the most exciting aspects of these classes is the price. At only $15 per class or $50 for all the classes, aspiring and seasoned filmmakers will not find a better bargain around.

According to Jen Gerber, “The goal of this master class series is to help Arkansas filmmakers take their projects to the next level while also providing a chance to grow in a specific crew position. At the end of the master class series, we will produce a professional music video alongside the Valley of the Vapors music festival March 17-18. It is our aim to create an environment where filmmakers can immediately apply the skills they have learned to an actual larger scale production.”
