We are excited to announce that Simon Phillips will be coming back to London in November after the sold out London seminar and regional tour with Creative Skillset earlier this year.
In the popular seminar, aimed at professional directors at every stage of their TV and film-making career, directing coach Simon Phillips offers you first insights into the Tools of Directing techniques, already widely employed in the UK and internationally. You will build on your existing experience as a director, distilling your current practice into clear principles that can be immediately applied to your work - from script development to planning the shoot. You will learn straightforward techniques to break down and plan how to shoot your script, problem-solve performance issues and to communicate more effectively with your writer, actors and DoP.
TOOLS OF DIRECTINGTools of Directing do not depend on theories of writing or acting, but are specifically dedicated to the director’s craft, using practical, repeatable methods that Simon Phillips has developed over ten years working as a directing coach in film and television for creative TV and Film directors. Oscar and EMMY award winning professional writers, directors and producers have worked with Simon’s unique approach. Many directors who have trained with Simon's Tools of Directing have gone on to great success, including the recent Nordic Noir series THE KILLING and THE BRIDGE.
FEEDBACK FROM PREVIOUS PARTICIPANTSMadeleine Ekman, Co-Producer THE HUNT (Oscar Nominee 2014), MELANCHOLIA and ANTICHRIST: “All directors need this. The teacher is perfect, with own personal experiences and solutions that made us really think.”
Merlin Crossingham, Director at AARDMAN ANIMATIONS: “This could help you figure out the stuff you can’t figure out. As a working director it is always good to take a fresh look.”
