The Lockdown Sessions: Making Content in One Location

  1. Catherine Halder (verified owner)

    The talks confirmed some of the more obvious aspects to consider and to consolidate ways of coping with filming in a confined are using simplified scripts but became repetitive. The need for effective dialogue and/or concepts were emphasised but some actual good film examples of these would have gone a long way. Lots of links for further guidance were offered.

  2. Dan Bachmann (verified owner)

    Great pace touching on many points perfect for someone new to the scene like myself. Connected concept to reality by providing links as we went through the talk. Questions addressed very well. It may have been the best of Lockdown Sessions so far.

  3. Barbara Vonau

    Very good overview and inspiring , very motivating. Practical tips and efficient delivery for the one hour time slot.

  4. Kal Sabir (verified owner)
