99 Minute Film School

August 22, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


A Complete Film School in 99 Minutes!

About the Course

Of course it is impossible to explain filmmaking in 99 minutes! Or is it?

Elliot Grove, founder of Raindance and one of the most knowledgeable filmmakers in the UK, will attempt just that and give you a viable plan and dozens of filmmaking tips in just 99 minutes.

The workshop will run through the basic essentials you will need to create a film and to create a plan to launch your career. This includes how to source material & crew, film marketing and how to get paid work in the film industry!

Who is it for?

This course is for filmmakers just starting out on their film path, be they committed hobbyists or aspiring professionals. Directors, Writers, Producers – everyone should catch this course!

[quote]I really felt that I needed a short film-making refresher course before I plunge into production with at least one, if not both, of my short film scripts Eye 4 an Eye and The Height of Cheating. And there is no-one better placed to offer me that invaluable advice, help and encouragement than Elliot Grove of Raindance. I can’t recommend these guys enough, they are brilliant at Raindance!
