2019 Workshops by Dallas Jenkins

  • How to Lead a Set Everyone Loves

    Every project is immensely difficult, but faith-based films present unique challenges. Why? Because often you have a mix of believers and non-believers, and it's vital to create a set atmosphere that is welcoming, comfortable, and exciting for everyone. Dallas takes you through a day of filming and covers topics such as proper set etiquette; directing different kinds of actors; keeping every department happy even when they oppose one another; being the general while still giving your team freedom; and of course, how to handle prayer and devotionals. Even if you're not a director, this workshop will help you be a better contributor to each project.
