DESIGNING FILMS”
Thursday 10. 16:30-18:30h. Free registration. Limited places.

The poster, the storyboard, the special effects… Long before picking up a camera, a lot of films begin life with a pencil and paper. This masterclass is here to teach us about the inner workings of those professions adjacent to film production, but which are essential to ensuring the stories fulfil their potential. When all is said and done, it is all about one thing; telling stories in images.
