Using an apparently straightforward event as its starting point – 'A' drops a handkerchief and 'B' picks it up – the workshop exposes, through a systematic and rigorous process of scrutiny, the complexities inherent in this, and indeed any scenario.
It goes on to examine the variations and possibilities which must be considered before the event can be translated first into a script, and then - via all the stages of prep, shoot and post production - onto the screen.
This is a highly practical Directing Summer School with Udayan Prasad at The London Film School aimed at anyone who is serious about a career in film; from those about to apply to a major film school, to anyone wishing to improve their understanding of the craft before embarking on their own short films. At the end of the course each participant will receive a certificate of attendance, plus a DVD of their scenes which may be used for showreel purposes or as part of an application portfolio.
