Directing a film requires clear and effective communication with cast and crew. Our director walks us through the process of brainstorming, organizing ideas and stringing them all together, providing the tools that allow a director to effectively communicate ideas to cast and crew for a cohesive and compelling story. The course will cover screenplay structure and how it applies to scenes, introduce basic storyboard language, learn ways to pitch your idea, and troubleshoot your project. By the end of the two-hour workshop, you’ll have structure for organizing your thoughts and conveying ideas to others. No previous film experience is required. This workshop applies to narrative, experimental, and documentary film genres and is open to filmmakers of all levels. We recommend you bring a script summary or project idea for practical application during the class!
