Power of Lighting

Light is the most important tool available to you when enhancing the atmosphere and mystery of your story on camera.  Using a digital camera and a simple lighting kit, this workshop will introduce you to the basics of lighting for moving pictures, with emphasis on working on the low-budget digital formats.

For more details: Power of Lighting.

Power of Sound

Probably the thing most ignored by filmmakers at every level, yet a vital component of every movie. Film is an audio-visual medium and yet so many films are let down by having no understanding of the ‘audio’ part of that dynamic. This course will cover sound from on set recording to mixing in post, Foley and ADR.

For more details: Power of Sound.

Power of Special Effects

What low-budget horror movie doesn't need a bucket of fake blood and the odd severed limb? Doesn't your edge of the seat action movie need a little explosion now and again? Maybe your Indie rom-com needs a decapitated corpse to spice things up a bit? Ok, perhaps not the last one, but this class will show you how to put the FX on the screen without blowing up your budget too.

Raindance
Since 1992 Raindance has been offering advice and support for independent filmmakers. We started the Raindance Film Festival in 1993, and the British Independent Film Awards in 1998.

Most of our year is spent training thousands of new and established filmmakers in all aspects of film. Among high profile alumni are Christopher Nolan (Batman Begins), David Yates (Harry Potter), Guy Ritchie and Matthew Vaughn – who actually met at a Raindance course. Raindance training is one of the world’s largest catering for over 3000 students per year.

In 2011 we launched an innovative Postgraduate Film Degree with Staffordshire University and the Independent Film Trust.

The 24th Raindance Film Festival has now released it's 2016 festival trailer: a homage to Stephen Spielberg who celebrates his 70th birthday this year:

In 2014 we relaunched our production arm, Raw Talent with the feature Deadly Virtues.
