About the Course

Directing is a big business, and there are many different approaches to learning the craft. However, all directors really need to have one key skill, and that is being able to communicate clearly and dynamically with their creative and technical teams.

In this intensive taster session, Chris Thomas will demonstrate effective ways of sharing your vision with your main collaborators, the producer, director of photography and cast.

Who is it for?

This course is for anyone with an interest in the human aspect of how movies are made. Writers, producers, actors, technicians, as well as directors – these are all people who need to get their visions and ideas across to their colleagues quickly and efficiently.

What will I get?

During the class, Chris will pass on key tips, work on a short scene with professional actors and show how to make more of your shot choices before and during the shoot.

Topics covered are:

  • Developing Your Vision – Know your Story
  • Directing A Casting
  • Working with Actors
  • Directing The Camera
  • Keeping Your Eye On The Prize – Directing For the Edit

If you are looking for a informative and inspiring kick start or refresher, this is the place to find it!
