Industry professional to share knowledge of film production

Do you dream of producing films? Industry professional Tasso Lakas will share his experience in the field of film and television production in a free public presentation in Lambton Tower’s Studio A at 2 p.m. Wednesday, January 24.

Lakas is co-ordinator of Toronto Indie Production program of the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists (ACTRA), the union representing performers in the film, radio, television, and new media industries.

The program cultivates and supports new and emerging filmmakers, providing them with the essential ingredients for getting started in the industry. In his role, Lakas assists producers through the steps to bring Canadian stories to screens — his program has 535 films to its credit.

He will discuss every aspect of developing a project; a question-and-answer discussion will follow his talk. The event is sponsored by the Humanities Research Group.
