Join producer Elizabeth Avellán and her EYA Productions partner Shannon McIntosh for an in-depth and informative discussion on producing an independent feature film. Using WHEN ANGELS SING and BLACKTINO as case studies, they’ll talk about all aspects of producing your feature film: from selecting your script and director, financing, putting your crew together, production – specifically in Austin – through post- and marketing.

Elizabeth Avellán is the Co-Owner and Vice President of Troublemaker Studios and President of EYA Productions. Avellán’s producing career began with Robert Rodriguez’s EL MARIACHI – made for just $7,000, EL MARIACHI was the winner of the 1993 Audience Awards at the Sundance and Deauville Film Festivals - and her credits have since grown to include  DESPERADO, FROM DUSK TILL DAWN, THE FACULTY, SPY KIDS, ONCE UPON A TIME IN MEXICO, SIN CITY, GRINDHOUSE, and many more. In addition to producing family and genre films that have collectively grossed over a billion dollars, she has played a primary role in developing Austin, Texas as a thriving film community.
