UPCOMING MASTERCLASSES

 

DIRECTING MASTERCLASS

Directing actors on screen is a delicate art. Get a head-start with this practical masterclass which explores techniques and strategies to help aspiring directors tease out the best performances from their screen actors. During the masterclass, participants will have a unique opportunity to direct a live scene with semi-professional acting students from a top UK drama school. Following a debrief with our professional directing coach, students will leave with the tools they need convey intention and objectives to actors without giving line-readings, learning how to let actors find meaning for themselves.

Directing Masterclass runs Saturday 6th June 3pm-6pm GMT+1.

Additional Requirements: smartphone, tablet or camera with video recording abilities.

SOUND RECORDING MASTERCLASS

There’s a saying in the industry that you can get away with terrible pictures if your sound is good, but if your sound is bad, the greatest photography in the world can’t save you. We know that recording good quality sound is one of the hardest things for aspiring filmmakers to master, and this practical masterclass will reveal the tips, tricks and low-budget kit that can make a huge impact. Through a series of practical exercises with a focus on using smartphones, tablets, DSLRs or video cameras, participants will learn from our professional filmmaker how to guarantee their sound recording never lets them down again.

Sound Recording Masterclass runs Saturday 20th June 3pm-6pm GMT+1.

Additional Requirements: smartphone, tablet or camera with video recording abilities.

DOCUMENTARY FILMMAKING MASTERCLASS

Documentaries are booming. Platforms like Netflix attract some of their biggest audiences with documentaries, and short documentaries are finding eyeballs everywhere from the classroom to viral advertising. This practical masterclass will focus on mastering key techniques used by documentary filmmakers, including interview strategy, using voiceover, working with still images and getting maximum production values from stock footage. Participants will experiment with shooting on the fly and leave with the tools they need to make their real-life stories into screen reality.

Documentary Filmmaking Masterclass runs Saturday 4th July 3pm-6pm GMT+1.

Additional Requirements: smartphone, tablet or camera with video recording abilities.

SOUNDTRACK MASTERCLASS

The music you choose can make or break a scene. The influence of a musical score on your movie is huge. This practical masterclass explores the subtle way that a musical score helps or hinders your storytelling, through experimenting with different approaches to the soundtrack for the same movie sequence. Our professional filmmaker will provide participants with all the assets they need to break the rules, experimenting with different musical styles in their edit. After analysing the often unexpected effects that music – or silence – can have on the tone and feeling of the same sequence, participants will leave with a fuller understanding of how soundtrack choices can add a new dimension to their filmmaking.

Soundtrack Masterclass runs Saturday 18th July 3pm-6pm GMT+1.
