SCRIPTWRITING FOR ACTORS

How many actors have said – “oh my god, this is soooo implausible…” or “my character wouldn’t do that” or “ I’d never say that!”.

My hand’s up!

That is one of the reasons I started to shift my focus from being in front of a camera, to being behind it as a writer and director. That, coupled (or tripled!) with shifting into an age demographic where there was no longer much work for me, and knowing that I had stories I needed to tell, that I’d never see unless I wrote them.

CREATIVE EDITING: HOW TO MAKE THE MAGIC HAPPEN IN POST

Being a technically proficient non-linear picture editor that knows how to input files from different sources, organize them in the right folders, set up your timeline, and do rough edits is important but there is more to editing than the basic know how.

LOCATION MANAGEMENT

Learn everything there is to know about being a Location Manager.

The Location Managers' primary role is to identify and find ideal locations for a film shoot. They report to the Producer, Director and Production Designer.

The search for exactly the right location can take months of research and scouting. Work starts in pre-production, to understand the Director’s creative vision for the film. This helps the Location Manager make the right decisions about potential locations.
