Filmmaking Masterclass in Venice

 Held during the 70° Venice Film Festival 


This unique Filmmaking Masterclass which is focused on storytelling is limited to only 20 participants.

It’s an intense hands on two days where an enormous amount is covered. Some of the things that we cover are:

How to best tell your story
Visual Storytelling
The power of audio
Lens Whacking with James Miller. Check the video below for more on lens whacking. There is no better city  than Venice to try out this wonderful filming  technique 
How to see things differently
Techniques to lift production value
The interview

and so much more

Naturally technology is discussed and how it can and sometimes hinder us. James and I show you how to get the best out of your camera. In fact many we will have not only DSLRs at the workshop but I will be bringing my Sony F55, Canon 1DC, C100 and of course my  Canon 5DmkIII.

We cover all aspects of low budget production and how they all are combined to help you tell your story.

Each attendee is set an actual filmmaking challenge on the first day so some experience is essential both in shooting and in editing. You will need to bring your camera, tripod, basic sound gear ideally too. Plus of course your laptop for editing.


This is a unique opportunity to be part of a really special learning experience and the first time  I have brought my acclaimed two day workshop to Italy so don’t miss out!

It’s just 490 Euros for the two days including lunch. There are also discounts available for accommodation nearby.
