Each week, this workshop will begin with a discussion on various elements of a director’s preparation, from storyboarding to casting, cinematography, script break down, blocking, etc.
Following the discussion, one director directs a scene while the other five directors watch and observe their techniques. We provide each director with a two page scene and two actors.
The purpose of the workshop is not to direct a great scene, but to learn about your own strengths and weaknesses as a director. This will be accomplished by filming each director’s scene in one wide shot without cutting between takes–the director will then be able to playback the scene, hearing their directions and seeing how they were taken. We encourage directors taking the workshop to use this time to experiment and even fail.
8 week workshop. Limited to 6 directors. Ages 18+. $50 discount for Avrec members. (Membership is only $100 / year, visit our membership page for more information.)
