A fresh, short, sharp overview of film directingDirecting is big business, and there are many different approaches to learning the craft. However, all directors really need to have one key skill, and that is being able to communicate clearly and dynamically with their creative and technical teams.
In this intensive taster session, film director Chris Thomas will demonstrate effective ways of sharing your vision with your main collaborators, the producer, director of photography (DOP), and Cast.

Topics covered are:
- Developing your vision – know your story
