Award-winning filmmaker and director Keith Allott (Badshoes Film) leads our annual 8-week practical introduction to filmmaking, taking you step by step all the way from pre-production planning through to the final edit of your film.

We will look at using the camera and what shot types cause what effects with an audience; capturing good audio and treating it; editing, edit pacing and the effects it has; and how music can change the mood of your film completely.
