About the Event

The  first time you direct a project it can feel overwhelming. You  desperately want to make a good movie but you're not sure how to  visually tell your story. Maybe you do have some ideas of how you want  to shoot your film but you're not sure if those ideas will give you the  cinematic look you desire on your limited budget. In this class we will briefly touch on: 1. How to use camera angles and blocking to strategically reveal story elements and information about your characters. 2. How lighting can create mood and the tone of your film. 3. The importance of taking your time with pre-production 4. How to communicate with your crew to achieve your film goals. 5. Working with an editor who understands your vision. This  class is an introduction to the Virtual Indie Director workshop that  will start January 29th taught by WOCF Founder & President, Landi  Maduro. If you have taken the class or this workshop before this is a  great refresher on some of the techniques and skills Landi teaches.

She has produced, written and directed  various small business commercials, music videos, online courses,  shorts, and virtual live broadcast. Her most fulfilling project to date  is, The Silent Killer: Prostate Cancer In The African American  Community. With this documentary she challenged herself as a writer,  producer, and director and began touring and lecturing nationwide  advocating prostate cancer awareness. As the proud leader of WOCF, Landi  believes in supporting and uplifting female filmmakers as they pursue  careers in film and television.
