Director Jason Stutter

Directors Toolkit

Award-winning director Jason Stutter leads this two-day workshop, offering a practical guide to directing for emerging directors. The Directors Toolkit aims to establish a professional approach to filming and underline the keys to good work.

Over the weekend, we will cover working with professional actors, non-actors, and different scales of production crew. We will take you through pre-production, casting, production, post-production and how to get your final film out into the world of festivals and markets.

Lunch and refreshments provided.
