Holiday Gifts For Filmmakers| Raindance Film Festival

In true Raindance Film Festival style we’re still committed to delivering the traditional Holiday season. Why give objects that languish in drawers when you can choose career-enhancing Holiday Gifts For Filmmakers?

This year we may have curtailed the normal online frenzy, but I believe this gives us a useful exercise in reflection. In some ways the pandemic has made us think about what we really value in our lives. I know, as filmmakers we value our creativity – possibly more so than acquiring new things.

And the one thing we can do to cultivate our creativity is to learn the tools and techniques of the craft that we’re manifesting them through.

Yes, we’re talking about story skills. And filmmaking skills. In case you’ve missed it, you can save up to 40% discount on Raindance filmmaking classes to help you do just that.

These are products for investing in yourself. In your craft. And ultimately in your creativity.

Rather than buying more things that will sit in drawers and maybe get used once or twice, education and material to learn new skills is something that can stay with you forever. It enhances your life. How you think, and how you dream.

And ultimately what you believe is possible for your life.

2020 has been an horrendous, disruptive year. But with the capacity to dream of a brighter tomorrow, and with the skills that are within your reach, so much more is possible.

Here are the classes that will help you make tangible progress on your writing dreams. And Raindance courses start at £15. And that’s before your discount!
