Are you interested in film directing? Do you have projects to implement, but you feel stuck? Are you in need of mentoring and you failed to sign up for an online film directing course with Agnieszka Smoczyńska? Nothing to worry about! We invite you to participate in its second edition!
In a series of four meetings – between February 27 and March 15 – the director will reveal the secrets of film directing, finding a subject and characters. Using her own experience – gained, ie. on the set of “The Lure” or “Silent Twins” – she will also explain how to guide actors and working with the cinematographer, production designer and the rest of the crew. She will advise on how to present and defend your vision for the film.
