Event Details

Filmmakers Tom Capps, Phil Russell and Janelle Tedesco will pull back the curtain to reveal some tricks and secrets behind how movies are made. Whether it’s a big budget or independent film there is always an illusion to create and a way to accomplish it! Props and visual aids help these three filmmakers show the audience real tricks and techniques commonly used during the movie making process. Long Island natives Tom and Phil are both graduates of the Film School at Five Towns College, Janelle is a graduate of the Boston Conservatory and all three collaborate on a regular basis under the umbrella of “Thursday Shoots” production company.

Tom Capps and Phil Russell are the founders of Thursday Shoots, a New York based independent filmmaking production company. They have honed their craft in many different formats, such as short and feature length films, web series, music videos, broadcast news, reality television, and commercials. Their works have been featured on truTV, Above Average, Funny or Die, CollegeHumor, Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, Splitsider, IFC, and iPhones (probably). They have received over 20 awards at various film festivals for their original productions. Janelle Tedesco is new to the filmmaking team bringing 25 years of professional acting experience. She has performed on stages across the country and around the world even working with stage and screen legend Ann-Margret!
