Short course

Overview

If you have a burning desire to become a filmmaker, then making a short film is the ideal way to take that first significant step on the filmmaking ladder. Not only will the production of a short film introduce you to every key aspect of the filmmaking process, but it can also provide you with the ultimate ‘calling card’ to showcase your talents. 

This 2-day filmmaking course strips away the mystique of film production and shows that anyone with drive and passion can write, direct & produce a short film. It is specifically geared towards those who no longer want to just talk about making a film, but actually want to get down to the nitty-gritty of actually making a film.

The course will cover as much ground as possible, so that attendees gain a broad understanding of the whole filmmaking process – from story and script development right through to the finished film. There will also be on-going opportunities for Q & A, allowing attendees to deal with specific queries and concerns as and when they arise.

Bruce Windwood is an independent film producer, scriptwriter and director based in Oxfordshire.
