This one day workshop with the highly experienced, award-winning Film Director and Film Making tutor, Doug Rollins, will provide insight and inspiration, along with a professional overview of the complex and demanding job of being a professional screen director.
The course will be challenging but beginners and advanced will all gain tips, tricks and skills and advance their knowledge base and skill level.
The course will help to discover the reasons why you want to be a director, what you think you need, know and reveal if you think you are cut out for the challenge of a rigorous shoot.
The day will cover the following:
- What does a director do?
- Who does what on a set and the importance of effective delegation?
- We look at script and story
- Breaking down a screenplay to structurally manage scenes
- Shot and camera planning, coverage and engaging storytelling
- Anticipating scheduling timings and allowing for problems
The course continues with:
- Essential knowledge of camera and lenses
- Acquisition of equipment and budgetary / schedule implications
- The Ist AD, DoP and Director Triumvirate (three powerful people)
- Locations and scene description implications
- The vital importance of casting. 50% of the work is done if the casting is precise and professional
- Rehearsal and blocking with actors and crew
- Shooting to edit
Short scenes will be allocated through the day with which you will be able to implement some of your new skills under the watchful eye of Doug Rollins. Bring a notebook and pen.
