What do some of the best filmmakers in the world all have in common? They are masterful storytellers… and they honed their craft by analysing the stories of others. In our ten-part video series, we will be doing just that! Each video lesson includes analysis of award-winning features and short films, fundamental film theory, excerpts from some of the most notable storytellers around, and some all-important tips you can take away and use in your own films.
