Workshop Description: 

Music Video can be one of the most accessible ways that individuals can begin a career in directing. By its very nature, the music video is stylistic, expressive, evocative, and free of many of the constraints of standard narrative filmmaking.

The instructor will go over the essential elements of what goes into making a music video, including: choosing the right band and the right song, creating the look of the video and its overall aesthetic style, planning the music video shoot, learning how to shoot and keep the film in sync with the lyrics and editing, and adding visual special effects.

Instructor's Biography: 
In 2009 Rob wrote what would be his first feature film. Inspired by his 12 years working in a Call Centre, and life as a father of a special needs child, he put pen to pad and wrote “Calling”. The film was a story about a man, Rick, coming to grips with the reality of his son’s condition. On the same day he learned of massive layoffs at his company. As it turns out, Rob would find himself in the very same situation not many years later. “Calling” was not only Rob’s first feature film, it was his introduction to a world he never thought possible, writing and telling stories. He formed “Let Em Laugh Productions” and the rest as they say, is history. He was travelling a new path in life. Since 2009 Rob has written and directed a second feature film “The Divorce”, is a producer, co-director & videographer for “Simply Zen”, Elaine Shannon’s television show, was the first AD on another full length this past summer, wrote & shot a teaser for a television show he is developing, and is gearing up for pre-production on his next full length feature “My Brother Baxter”, which is a departure from the crude comedy that he and the Let Em Laugh team are known for. Rob believes in the “Yes we can” attitude, something he and his team preach for every project. Anyone can laugh and never take the chance, but Rob and everyone he works with simply push forward, and Let Em Laugh, we’ll do it regardless.
