London Hands-On Directing 5 août 2017 10:00-6 août 2017 17:00 Festival Raindance Film Festival Eventbrite

The director is ultimately responsible for every image and sound that appears on the screen. Learn the art and craft of film directing by getting behind the camera and shooting a scene yourself.

This intensive weekend masterclass teaches students the techniques behind maximising the performance of the cast while realising the importance of the ultimate audience – the camera. Attendees will be given a number of practical exercises to undertake, including directing a short dramatic scene.

How will you achieve?
On completion of Hands-On Directing: Part One, students will have acquired the skills, knowledge and practical experience to then step behind the camera and direct your own projects.
How will you be taught?

A mix of lecture-style, demonstration and also practical instruction with tutor guidance. In addition, students will have the opportunity to direct a short dramatic scene.

Who should attend?
Hands-On Directing is suitable for beginner directors, as well as those with a small amount of experience looking to improve their practical skills and develop their own directorial expression. It is also suitable for those with some theoretical knowledge of directing seeking practical experience.
