  • Transitions 20/40 Filmmaking Activities

You will attend weekly classes and work with your tutor in developing and realising content for screen and improve your practical skills which you can use in your future training. You will explore character, plot and dialogue to evolve believable stories. You will also learn about presenting your ideas to external producers and gain insight into what they are looking for in your pitch. You will progress to explore existing TV content and begin to frame out your own ideas in the context of TV, film or online platforms. You will further develop and complete final versions of film or TV pilot scenes and share these with partners.
