 What they are saying

If you are stuck with an existing project or want to develop an idea this course will give you direction and  invaluable feedback from fellow students.  Just make sure you commit to the time or you will kick yourself. My short was an idea. After the course and hard hitting feedback I am now filming it and I only wanted to write a good script!  Fast track = confidence to go and do it.
Claire Stevens, Writer/Director, Fast Track Jan 2014

Here’s how it works:

1. All Participants receive:

  • Access to our weekly filmmaking and screenwriting group (10 sessions) – an initiative designed to get facilitated and peer feedback on your project.
  • Up to twenty one-on-one half hour tutorials with a filmmaking professional, who will act as your personal mentor.
  • 1 year Raindance Premium Membership: includes free access to Boozin’ N’ Schmoozin’ open networking events.

2. Decide what you want to do

The Raindance Fast Track programme is yours to shape.
Are you a writer? A producer? A film director?

At the fast track you could:

  • Write a feature film screenplay
  • Produce a short film
  • Write a Teleplay
  • Create and launch a Web Series
  • Make a Documentary

Make a plan of attack:

You decide with your industry tutor what producing/writing/directing project you would like to undertake. The tutor will advise and assist you in developing a strategy to enable you to realise your dream.

I just wanted to say thanks so much for the support you have offered me this year. Talking to you and getting involved in Raindance Fast Track gave me the big creative push I needed to get cracking on my directing career.
The shoot went very well and the first edit looks really good so I am thrilled. Still a bit of work to do, but I am now in the process of getting the next script together and working with Mark to flesh this one out a bit more.
I wish you all the very best for the new year and look forward to learning and making more films.
Thanks again,
Hilary Manning

    A huge thank you to the whole team for having the Fasttrack class on your ever-growing list of hugely helpful courses on the Raindance slate.

    It far surpassed my expectations (which were high!) with the combination of brilliant courses to enrol on including the ability to join live remotely via the internet (important for those of us who don’t live in London!), the 12-week screenwriting/project discussion group and the fantastic mentoring scheme, too.

    The whole package gave such a comprehensive understanding and training of filmmaking in a side of the industry which isn’t often very transparent in terms of working practices and how to (and how not to) get things done.

    A great opportunity, too, to meet like-minded people – some of whom I have worked with since. Well worth the investment – thank you once again!

    It’s simply the best value for money course I have ever known. I was blown away by the careful attention of the tutors and mentors. The open classes on the weekends are also exceptional. I’m now working on making the short film – the script of which I wrote on this course.
