Free filmmaking resources: CineSummit

‘Our hand-picked team of 9 world-class Directors reveal how you can create superior looking films, instantly set yourself apart from the competition, and amaze your fellow filmmakers.’

What I can say is I’ve never tried to absorb so much amazing content in such a short period of time when I watched last year.

Directors of Film, TV and high end commercials talked through various topics such as:

  • Composition & camera operating
  • Storytelling techniques
  • Minimal lighting
  • Commercial lighting
  • Motivated lighting
  • Camera movement
  • Lenses

They also play scenes and display stills from their work whilst demonstrating exactly how they created it.

The cost? There’s currently and ‘early bird’ offer of $97 for lifetime access to all of this years CineSummit. The best bit? You can watch it all for free if you log in and live stream it. Last year I made 16 pages of notes to revise later.  Even so, I’m sure I missed out on hours of invaluable learning material. It’s happening on March 1st and 2nd, and whether you’re prepared to pay nearly £70 or not, you should not miss out on the live stream.
