Workshops / Q&As

These workshops are designed for learning all of the responsibilities and how to complete a successful production in the life of someone in the Assistant Director department.

The workshops can be moulded for any level of students/early-professionals. For example, a good amount of workshops in universities will focus on working as a runner; how to best support the first, second & third AD and what to have/what to miss on a CV. 

To make sure your class will get the best out of the my visit, a meeting between myself and the tutor can be arranged prior to the day to discuss exactly what you would like me to cover and if there may be anything specific they are learning/about to learn in the course.

What is usually covered in a Q&A or Workshop;

  • 1st AD and Director relationship in pre-prod and while on set

  • Preparation; list of priorities

  • CV breakdown (things to keep/thing to lose) 

  • Cast breakdown
