Directors Club

Written by Pictoclik on . Posted in News

Immerse yourself in this three month program where you will work hands on with talent in this fun and engaging course filled with challenges and awards.

This Club launches January 7th in a 2 hour preview session where the participants will work on their first challenge, TABLE READ CHALLENGE. Participants will pick a short film script and then be paired with talent to do a complete table read. The class will conclude with one or two participants groups showcasing in front of the group.

January 21st will be audition day. We will be conducting a 4 hour audition process to find local talent for upcoming productions. Tapes will be online for further review afterwards. Participants must select and submit their favorite talent by the next session.

1st & 3rd Sundays in February we will be prepping for our second directors challenge, SMART PHONE CHALLENGE. All participants will be given the same script and randomly be given a genre. Time slots will be given out Saturday for a shoot on Sunday. Directors will have one week to work with an editor to complete their edits. Note, editors will be remote meetings as they will be spread out in different cities.

1st & 3rd Sundays in March participants will prepare on the 1st Sunday for their FINAL CHALLENGE. All participants will be given the same script and then they will sign up for a blocked time to shoot the video with a camera and basic lighting. They will be given a week to work with the editor to achieve their final piece. Note, editors will be remote meetings as they will be spread out in different cities.

Last Sunday in March this is our final day and we will be reviewing all the material and awarding the best director.
