About the Instructor

Hi, I'm Caleb Negassa. I've been producing shorts, features, TV series and commercials for nearly 10 years in Los Angeles. When I started out, I had no idea what resources were available to me nor did I know what the right questions to ask where. Through trial and error and extensive time spent at trying to get projects off the ground, I’ve come full circle into what it takes to get a project off the ground. I’ve had the pleasure of raising money for shorts, narrative features and web series.
