A Complete Film School in 99 Minutes!

About the Course

Of course it is impossible to explain filmmaking in 99 minutes! Or is it?

Elliot Grove, founder of Raindance and one of the most knowledgeable filmmakers in the UK, will attempt just that and give you a viable plan and dozens of filmmaking tips in just 99 minutes.

The workshop will run through the basic essentials you will need to create a film and to create a plan to launch your career. This includes how to source material & crew, film marketing and how to get paid work in the film industry!

Who is it for?

This course is for filmmakers just starting out on their film path, be they committed hobbyists or aspiring professionals. Directors, Writers, Producers - everyone should catch this course!

I really felt that I needed a short film-making refresher course before I plunge into production with at least one, if not both, of my short film scripts Eye 4 an Eye and The Height of Cheating. And there is no-one better placed to offer me that invaluable advice, help and encouragement than Elliot Grove of Raindance. I can't recommend these guys enough, they are brilliant at Raindance!
Chris Smith, filmmaker

What will I get?

By the end of the 99 minutes, you will have learned the tips and tricks behind:

  • Finding a do-able script
  • Finding cast and crew
  • Shooting tips
  • Getting your film seen
  • Social media basics for filmmakers
  • The career ladder
  • Distribution and exhibition
  • Money and how to get paid

Elliot Grove
Elliot Grove founded Raindance as a thought experiment: Can you make a film with no money, no training and no experience, he asked? When people like his first intern Edgar Wright started making movies he started the Raindance Film Festival to celebrate their work in 1993, the British Independent Film Awards in 1998. Elliot has produced over 150 short films, and 5 feature films. He has written eight scripts, one of which is currently in pre-production. His first feature film, TABLE 5 (1997) was shot on 35mm and completed for a total of £278.38. He teaches writers and producers in the UK, Europe, Japan and America. In 2006 he produced the multiple-award winning The Living and the Dead.
In 2013 he relaunched the production arm: Raw Talent with the cult film director Ate de Jong. Their first venture was the psychological thriller Deadly Virtues: Love.Honour.Obey. finished late 2013.

He has written three books which have become industry standards: RAINDANCE WRITERS LAB 2nd Edition (Focal Press 2008), Raindance Producers' Lab: Lo-To-No Budget Filmmaking (Focal Press 2013) and 130 PROJECTS TO GET YOU INTO FILMMAKING (Barrons 2009). He was awarded a PhD in 2009 for services to film education. His first novel THE BANDIT QUEEN is scheduled for publication next year.

Elliot teaches several courses at Raindance including Lo To No Budget Filmmaking and Writer's Foundation Certificate.
