LEARNING LESSONS AND PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE - WHAT ARE WE DOING RIGHT AND WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO TO IMPROVE?
All aspects - editing, post production, planning and shooting
Discuss the results of this year's Mini Epics
Experience / lessons learnt from the shoot
The edit and sound - what did the editors think of the rushes?
Lessons for the future
Special effects - how did those doing post-production find doing these?
But it is not just Mini Epic, all these lessons apply to Documentaries as well and to larger drama productions.
Taking the lessons into other, bigger productions. Amateurs often have to film against the clock with little or no time for rehearsal, even (or more so) on big productions. Both technical and on the artistic side.
