With an ambitious program, and little funding, the Minnesota chapter of the Independent Filmmaker Project secured a 5,500 square foot, raw, whitewashed space within a 19th century warehouse in Saint Paul Minnesota. The design embraces the unfinished nature of creation, allowing the in-kind to be celebrated in its original form. The program is organized into three categories separated by two primary donated materials. Drywall separates filmmaking from interstitial. OSB separates interstitial from working.
In its way, IFP is a place created in the nature of independent film itself; a composition of light and sound, exposed, optimistic, assembled with minimal resources, and made possible through a community of support.
