The Filmmakers Boot Camp is taught by Larry Meistrich, NEHST Studios Chairman, Founder and Hollywood insider. Meistrich offers a rare opportunity for local aspiring filmmakers and writers to learn the A-Z’s of successful filmmaking from his own experiences and successes. Meistrich founded the first indie film studio ‘The Shooting Gallery’ and is the award-winning producer of Sling Blade, Belly, You Can Count on Me, and Croupier. “We are working hard to help break down the Hollywood barriers and make sure other talented aspiring film makers and actors can have access and take part in the industry as well,” states Meistrich.
Joining Meistrich will be Antonia Ellis, producer of the groundbreaking series SEX & THE CITY. She is currently traveling between Los Angeles and Vancouver, working as a Supervising Producer on the second season of the ABC-TV series, MEN IN TREES, starring Anne Heche. During the 2005- 2006 TV season, Antonia worked in NYC as the Co-Producer on the CBS-TV series (with subsequent airings on VH1), LOVE MONKEY. From 1999-2004, she was a Producer on the award-winning HBO series, SEX & THE CITY. She also worked as the Co-Producer on David Simon’s six-hour mini-series, THE CORNER, which was awarded the Emmy for Best Mini-Series (2000) and the Peabody Award.
