|PURPOSE OF THE COURSE|
|Preparation work on your shooting script and powerful direction of the camera are vital to engage your audience. Directors need to have the tools and the skills to be able to direct the camera effectively under the pressure of production and yet keep creative ideas fresh and true.|
TOOLS OF DIRECTING
Simon’s workshops and seminars - Tools of Directing Camera, Tools of Script Development and Tools of Directing Actors - are presented internationally. The Tools of Directing give directors their own unique methodology and bring new insights and clarity to the profession; which have both creative and financial benefits to film and TV production. Simon Phillips is a direction consultant for feature film and high level TV directors.
WHO IS THIS SEMINAR FOR?
This is a Master Class for individual directors and camera-people (cinematographers and camera operators) who have already gained experience in their roles. Participants may be film school graduates, short film experts, and seasoned professional filmmakers who wish to take away a clear set of creative tools to share with their teams.
Through practical exercises and analysing movie scenes each participant will learn a set of methods to plan camera positions for maximum emotional engagement. Unlike the usual cinematography training courses which concentrate on topics such as lighting, focus, special effects and lab technology, the emphasis here will be on developing a clear set of tools for knowing exactly where to place the camera and when to move it, so you can control the audience’s emotional experience throughout your story. These skills are essential in pre-production but invaluable on set when faced with the changeable reality of your shoot.
