Guild Workshops

Movie Trailers
Your movie trailer is a visual elevator pitch and your film doesn’t just need one, it needs a good one. We’ll look at examples of how to keep it short, keep it simple, and end with impact.

The Cutting Edge
Editing is more than knowing which buttons to push…it’s knowing when to push them. From cutting dialogue to creative scene transitions, we’ll discuss techniques that can enhance the journey for your audience.

Communicating With Color
We’ve all had that moment when our footage looks terrible. Someone forgot to white balance, or we have two cameras that don’t match. The art of color correction can help fix these problems. When used strategically, good color complements the story and creates a consistent look for the film.
