World Building

This workshop is designed to inspire meaningful visual language for storytellers. We will underscore communication between Director, Production Designer and Cinematographer by getting ideas out of your head, off the page, and into something tangible.  We will be dicsussing a simple, clear method for creating robust visual language that will resonate with your audience.  We will be talking about not just what's in the script, but what's inferred and beyond.  Having a script or treatment in any shape is helpful, but not necessary.
