Concept Development From Idea to Production

Thu 7 March 2019   6:00pm - 9:00pm
Part II: Tue 12 March 2019   6:00pm - 9:00pm

A 2-day workshop that explores the notion of how to take an idea and get it ready for production. Topics covered will be: brainstorming your idea and how to open up your creativity; outlining and script writing; imagining shots and creating a shot list; storyboarding on your own without an expensive artist (even if you can’t draw); the proper language to describe your shots to a cinematographer; how to think of angles and composition even if you’re not a photographer; how to pitch your idea in 3 minutes or less; and how to organize your shoot day so that you know how to manage yourself, your crew and your actors/subjects. Participants must bring at least 1 idea that they wish to workshop on the day.  This workshop will be held at our new HQ at the Toronto Media Arts Centre, 32 Lisgar.

  • maximum capacity: 10
