Times: 10:00h to 18:00h
With so many productions being filmed and cast out of Europe, it’s essential to hone the practice of self-taping, as it could provide an entry into working on exciting international projects. Rose Wicksteed (CSA, CDG) will be running a one-day workshop providing feedback on your pre-submitted self-tapes, sharing her own experiences of working primarily with American productions, and lend advice on how best to ensure your self-tape shines through, having discovered many exciting new faces internationally without having met in person.
She will provide tailored feedback specific to self-tapes you will submit ahead of the workshop, which will be individual to you, as well as general advice that can be applied to taping across the film and television sectors and answer any questions you have, either on the subject of self-taping or based on her industry experience to date.
She’ll be joined by her associate Sophie Kingston-Smith who has worked with her for over 2 years across international projects including Genius: Einstein, Genius: Picasso and Homeland.
Maximum group size: 16
All recorded material will be send to participating students on completion of the course.
NOTE: PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THIS COURSE IS TAUGHT ENTIRELY IN ENGLISH.
