DELIBERATE FILM – Note: There are 3 pages to this site

This studio was entirely online. The first 8 weeks were a series of exercises, sometimes two a week that explored most aspects of learning about filmmaking. Following that:

Each student wrote and submitted a script but there was a constraint that they couldn’t direct their own script. These films were shot with a crew of one, sometimes two, the main thing being that it was small and containable.



The learning of filmmaking inspired by prompts and guided with constraints.

Could a different approach to the learning of filmmaking – working through a series of projects inspired by prompts and guided by constraints that investigate different facets of film production – elicit better outcomes?
