How do you tell a story visually? How does the essence of the story suggest where you put the camera, how you frame the shot, create the palette? Why use one kind of shot rather than another? What makes a film a film, and not TV? Josh Appignanesi takes film directors shot by shot into the heart of cinema in this 2hr workshop at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art.
Josh is a writer/director based in London. He directed the comedy feature The Infidel, starring Omid Djalili, Richard Schiff, Matt Lucas and Archie Panjabi, scripted by David Baddiel. He also directed acclaimed art-house feature Song Of Songs, starring Natalie Press and co-written with Jay Basu. He has written and directed short films, music videos, documentaries, commercials and artworks, working with actors such as John Malkovich and David Tennant, and collaborating with artist Martin Creed among others. He mentors, advises and teaches internationally for various institutions including the London Film School, the Met Film School and Film London.
When: Friday 24th January, 11am – 1pm
