The Deal

  • C$49 for a one-day Break Into the Film Industry workshop with Elliot Grove on November 22 (C$249 value)

The seven-hour seminar covers every step of the filmmaking process over the course of four workshop segments. Attendees begin by learning to use key tricks in developing commercially viable screenplays, then discover production tips to help create a budget for their projects and incorporate guerilla filmmaking techniques. Christopher Nolan (Batman Begins, Inception) Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) and Guy Ritchie (Sherlock) all have creative roots at Raindance, and this intensive workshop is inspired by the steps these filmmakers took to launch their careers. Learn how to write, finance, produce, and sell a commercially viable creative film project with the founder of Raindance, Elliot Grove.

Attendees should bring supplies for taking notes, and will be expected to provide their own lunch.

Raindance Filmmaking

Raindance began as a thought experiment: can you make a movie with no money or experience, and without going to film school? 22 years, later Raindance now has 12 film networking and training hubs worldwide, and runs the largest indie film festival in Europe, the Raindance Film Festival. They provide hands on training, networking events, financing opportunities, and an innovative Membership program to help new and emerging filmmakers get their projects made.

Raindance's practical filmmaking and writing workshops break the daunting cinema-creation process into digestible workshops as industry professionals help to elevate the aptitude of independent filmmakers. Students can select courses that teach film industry basics including how to build a budget, choose a camera, and promote themselves. As a non-profit training and networking organization that works to promote and support filmmaking throughout the world, many classes conclude with networking sessions at local bars where participants can trade business cards to further their cinematic pursuits.
