Directing workshop


The Moving Picture Institute’s four-day directing workshop is designed for up-and-coming writer/directors, as well as filmmakers green-lit to direct MPI original projects, many of which originated and were developed in MPI screenwriting workshops. Receiving expert instruction from working directors, filmmakers learn vital tips for pre-production, production, and post. Participants rehearse scenes from their scripts, run mock casting sessions, and learn effective on-set strategies.
