Presented by Mark Jones
Join prolific Memphis filmmaker Mark Jones as he presents his workshop and discussion, “Filmmaking Within Your Means.” Mark will share his writing and filmmaking ethos, including writing for realistic and simple locations and minimizing the amount of speaking roles. But most importantly, this workshop will help teach you how to embrace your supposed creative limitations to make a wholly unique and original film.

He has made three feature films, “Tennessee Queer,” “Fraternity Massacre At Hell Island,” “Eli Parker Is Getting Married?,” and one web soap opera, “On The Edge of Happiness.” Mark worked at WKNO-TV, the Memphis PBS station, for several years both on the production crew and as an associate produce for a local roundtable discussion show. He now has a web talk show, “Memphis on the Mark,” where he interviews locals artists in the fields of film, music, and theatre. Mark’s short films (“Death$ in a $mall Town,” “Winding Brook,” “Henry,” & “Best Wedding Gift”) have screened at dozens of festivals around the country.
