The Essential Details: How proper pre-production enables a film shootPresented by: Don Boyd
Tuesday March 9 & Thursday March 11, both days at 11am - 12.15pm
In this two-part masterclass, filmmaker, producer and writer Don Boyd will discuss in-depth the preplanning work of a film or screen production. Don will share from his own experience what is necessary for a director and/or producer to do during this essential and often under-discussed phase of the filmmaking process to ensure the best working processes for the team. He will also touch upon how that planning adapts and changes with the introduction of the crew and actors as it moves into the shooting stage. This session will not only provide unique insight into the filmmaking process but be useful for anyone interested in the various ways planning aids collaboration.
Each session will run for 75 minutes with ample time for students to ask questions.
Don Boyd is a filmmaker, producer and writer. He has worked across film and television making both fiction and documentary work. His first production company, Boyd's Co., was a seminal influence on British film and his latest, Hibrow, has been called 'youtube for the arts'.
