Key Features

Directing can feel like a daunting experience so we have developed this masterclass to help you get a firm handle on how to work with actors and crew and taking your film from script to screen.

The course is ideal for anyone interested in Directing for either Film or TV as it will also explain the current climate of expectations on new directors; the realities of a first break and the shorter shooting schedules with tighter financial constraints that have made Directing a greater challenge than ever.
