Saw I, Saw II, Saw III....and you?


Great news from former alum and amazingly successful film producer Dan Heffner (you may remember that Dan came to Park last semester and made an amazing presentation to a standing-room-only crowd in the auditorium).

He's coming back to teach a mini-course on the responsibilities, role, challenges and opportunities of a producer -- from start to finish -- using the SAW films as the case studies.

Here are the details:

BRIEF DESCRIPTION: Dan Heffner, Producer of the "SAW" films will walk
you through the role of a film Producer from inception to release, using
SAW as a guideline. Sort of a Producer's master class. Students will

a good understanding of terminology and the different elements of film
production. Class open to all 200 level students. Park Majors ONLY.
