  • Structure and content

    The objective of this masterclass is to share Nora's creative process of feature production from script outline through to digital grading and mixing.

    Nora Twomey will go in-depth with topics such as:

    • Showing how each department intertwines - even across countries as often is the case with independent co-productions.
    • Understanding the ways a director has to communicate through a hierarchy of department heads to ensure consistency throughout the process.

    Nora will use the Oscar-nominated production 'The Breadwinner' to illustrate her approach to the process.

    The masterclass will be informal in presentation, allowing for interaction throughout to explore students' questions, ideas, and concerns throughout the day.

    Food etc.
    The course will include a sandwich for lunch as well as coffee and tea.
