VANCOUVER MEET UP DETAILS!
In mid March I head to lovely Canada where, for the first time, I will be doing a workshop in Vancouver and also visiting the lovely Toronto again!
Each one consists of a one day and a two day. Both are extremely valuable education wise, they just vary in time spent on different content, numbers, the amount of practical and of course the cost! You will still learn a huge amount at the one day…just be prepared for an enormously packed day!
The one day will cover a huge variety of topics, many of which are guided by the attendees. This is an interactive workshop, NOT a seminar. There will be a live shooting challenge on the one day and other practical demonstrations.
The two day will additionally consist of a filmmaking assignment for every attendee during the afternoon of day one. You will then be given home work to get it edited for showing and critiques in the morning of day two! Two day attendees will need to make sure you all have a camera, lenses, sound, tripod and lighting if you want. Editing ability that evening is also essential!
You must check out these examples of the films from the last workshop in Brussels by clicking here or the image below.
The main focus on both is storytelling on both the 1 day and 2 day. There is technical stuff in there but only what is essential and what is asked for. Much of that is easily available on my site here. Both workshops are designed to do a number of things, to give confidence and re-invegroate your passion for filmmaking with these incredible tools we now have access to.
Both workshops will cover the topics below…and more! The two day one will have more time spent on each section due to the additonal day.
1: How to harness your camera and make it work for you. You are expected to know the basics if you don’t know them I recommend going to this section of my site and getting up to speed.
2: How to look at things from a fresh perspective. Making the ordinary come to life with new eyes.
3: Storytelling, what is a story and how can you tell it that connects with the audience?
4: Planning vs no planning. How to make your shoots better and more efficient through pre-production but also how to go with the flow and just wing it when needed!
5: The art of the interview. Techniques to lift your interviewing technique with an additional section on lighting interviews.
6: The truly extra-ordinary. A section on slow motion and timelapse. Both things that fascinate and can lift your production.
7: Anything else that can be fitted in!
