This workshop will mix group work and demonstration to take a look at the process of building the visual structure of a scene and translating a visual plan into a practical plan that can be used in production.
No skill in drawing is required (or provided). This workshop is most suited for those interested in creating fiction-based cinema, but may be useful for those working on documentary projects.
