Event description

Description

I have been a filmmaker for over 30 years; writing, producing, and directing documentary, entertainment, and short films, but specializing in drama. I lecture in filmmaking for film and television, lead acting classes, teach actors how to act for the screen and conduct writing and story workshops. I have worked for all the major broadcasters in the UK and Europe and spent several years as a Producer and Director for BBC, during which time I collected 2 BAFTA awards for my work as a director as well as several other film and television awards.

Over three weekends I’ll be delving into the mysteries of film–making, explaining in detail what’s involved in Pre-Production, Shooting and Editing. Above all, this course is designed to sweep away the smoke and mirrors - to inspire you, and give you the confidence to get involved in the magic of film making.

Below is the 3-weekend schedule:
