Advocating on behalf of female directors for equal opportunities in the film and TV industry, Free The Bid Australia is launching an Intensive TVC Directing Workshop, to be held at Fox Studios in Sydney on July 21st and July 22nd 2018.
Giving emerging female directors access to experienced industry professionals, the two-day workshop will cover many aspects of the filmmaking process, such as the art of work/life balance as a full-time director, writing and designing treatments, the post production process, and, working with editors and visual effects teams.
Other topics to be explored include: the expectations now placed on directors - from pitching through to post; understanding the current advertising climate; what advertising agencies look for in a director; and, how to get signed with a production company.
The speaker line up brings a variety of industry leaders together, with award-winning directors Tracey Rowe, Zoe Macintosh, Jasmin Tarasin and Fiona McGee joined by executive producers Bonnie Law (Heckler), Leah Churchill Brown (Exit Films), Loren Bradley (The Sweet Shop) and Oliver Lawrance (Photoplay Films).
Also sharing their industry expertise is creative directors Sharon Edmunston (M&C Saatchi) and Kat Topp (One Green Bean), along with freelance editor Gaby Muir and treatment writer Ian Shadwell.
Free The Bid Australia ambassador, director Jasmin Tarasin says: “I’ve created a workshop under the Free The Bid banner that I myself would have got value from; covering off all of the questions I found hard to ask when I first started out as a director.”
“With the idea to fast-track the knowledge you need to succeed as an emerging TVC director, I think it’s invaluable to be in a space surrounded by your peers and colleagues where you are free to discuss any filmmaking subject you feel unsure about,” she adds.
