Workshop Description: 

(Film Co-op Members are required to take at least one directing course before they direct/
produce their own projects through the Film Co-op)

Using a combination of presentation, discussion and practical exercises, the workshop will cover filmmaking from the director’s perspective. This workshop will focus on choosing shots that help tell the story by adding to the dialogue.  Bronwen will also give a few tips on working with actors to get the best performance. 

The workshop is especially useful for those new filmmakers who are interested in writing, producing and directing their own material. 

Instructor's Biography: 
Bronwen has been telling stories ever since she was able to do things that weren’t purely for survival. For Bronwen, carefully crafted stories are somewhat of an obsession. Bronwen's involvement at the NB Film Coop began with a passion for acting. She has appeared in multiple shorts, including 'The Birth of a Nicola' by Chris Giles, 'A Dark Radius', by Gia Milani, 'Venus in Flames' by Chris Giles, and as an extra in many others. She has volunteered as Continuity Supervisor for 'Ask Ug' and 'The Man Who Loved Flowers' and as First Assistant Director for 'Venus In Flames’. As a Director, Bronwen has completed a music video 'Eden' (2007) and a short film titled 'A Saturday Affair' (2009) which was part of the Fredericton Cultural Capitals project and won the Viewer's Choice Award at Silver Wave Film Festival in 2009. Monkey See, another short about the trauma of being bullied, is currently in post-production and is expected to be released in 2018. She has also co-directed 2 episodes of Wabanaagig, a documentary television series which aired on APTN. Bronwen is currently collaborating with longtime friend Kaitlyn Adair on a short film titled March 2.4. It is a feminist piece about PTSD resulting from sexual assault written by Kaitlyn. As Kaitlyn's directorial debut, she asked Bronwen to co-direct in a mentorship role and Bronwen didn't give it a second thought. She is excited to help Kaitlyn achieve her goal and looks forward to more collaborations in the future.
