About this session

If you don't have a big budget or access to expensive kit to make your film, video essays are an excellent way of honing your filmmaking instincts. 

In this masterclass, we will show you how you can develop five key filmmaking skills through creating your own video essays. This in-depth session will also include creative prompts to kickstart your essay-making.

This masterclass will be delivered by Will Webb.
