In Motion Filmmaking Conference

In Motion Filmmaking Conference

While Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta and Chicago are renowned as hubs for filmmaking, the Midwest is often overlooked as a kernel of filmmaking activity. Therefore, with our Hurlbut Academy members stretching across the US and around the world, we couldn’t be more supportive of the first annual In Motion Filmmaking Conference that will be held at Covo in downtown St. Louis on November 2nd.


In Motion is organized by Continuity, a non-profit organization whose mission is to expand diversity in media production through skills-based training, mentorship and opportunities for untapped talent. The conference is sponsored by us here at Hurlbut Academy, alongside the MO Film Office, The Kranzberg Arts Foundation, Wildlife Command Center “Movie Animals”, Bruton Stroube, Explore St. Louis, Cinema St. Louis plus, Tribeca Film Institute, Menagerie Models and dozens of additional organizations.


This one-day conference, where over 200 filmmakers will be in attendance, will afford both novice and professional filmmakers from the Midwest region the opportunity to learn from industry experts and network with peers. All profits from In Motion will go to Continuity’s programs. Attendees will hear from over 30 filmmakers including Mark Valenti (award-winning writer for shows such as NBC, Hallmark and Lifetime and Executive Producer of Lifetime movies), Toby Brooks (manager of Sundance Institute’s Sundance Ignite Program), Caitlin Mae Burke (program manager for IF/Then Shorts at Tribeca Film Institute), Stephanie Tobey (Producer of the Netflix documentary “Abducted in Plain Sight”), Damon Davis (Award-winning Artist) and David Johnson (President of Coolfire Studios – Producers of “Fast N’ Loud” & “Welcome to Sweetie Pies.”)

One thing that we know our Hurlbut Academy members would love is the opportunity to participate in a Film Pitch Competition and Happy Hour networking event. If you need any tips on pitching then Shane’s Commercial Directing – What Nobody Talks About could give you the edge!
