Event description

Description

If you can create a ‘look’ for your film, your career will rocket. But why do so many British feature films, especially those by first-time directors, fail to achieve this important artistic success? When the technique needed for visually pleasing single-camera direction is so basic, why do so many directors fail to make the right choices? And when actors can add so much to a production, why don’t directors take the time to ensure that their actors perform to the best of their abilities?

This lecture teaches you the secrets of maximising performances from the cast while realising the importance of the ultimate audience – the camera. Learn how to direct on-time and on-budget.

Patrick Tucker
Patrick Tucker started directing for the stage in 1968 and for the screen in 1976, and has directed over 250 productions for the stage and over 200 dramas for the screen (including one feature) all over the world. His last stage work was Measure, For Measure for the Blackfriars Theatre in Virginia, and on screen a Russian sit-com Olympiada 80 filmed in Latvia (in Russian). He has lectured and run workshops on the various aspects of it all since the mid-1970s, and his books Secrets of Acting Shakespeare (Routledge 2nd Ed. 2017) and Secrets of Screen Acting (3rd Ed. Routledge 2014) contain many original insights – as do his workshops.
