Workshop: Websites for Filmmakers  
Wednesday, May 23 
6:00pm - 8:30pm 
Arts at the Armory, Somerville

Have you ever found yourself asking the question "What kind of website should I have for my film and what do I need to know to create it?"

In this workshop, you will learn the basic principles of the website building process; from pre-planning to publishing, running and maintaining your site.

Areas of focus include:
What can having a website do for my film?
When should I start?
How and when to work with a web designer?
What is WordPress and does it fit my needs?

We will also provide resources to use for inspiration in your decision-making process. Please bring your questions -- we are here to help!
