The residential included an intensive film master class. ‘The Emotional Tool Kit’ course was delivered by international film guru Laurie Hutzler. Through her expertise in story and character development she taught each of the filmmakers to explore characters in their own projects by character mapping and exploring character types.
The filmmakers, who travelled from around the UK to attend Low Wood Bay, have spent the past few weeks developing their story ideas in preparation for the Pinewood Studios boardroom pitch this weekend.
The competition winner will win a budget of £25,000 to help make their short film, production support, and advice from top industry professionals. The winner will also fly to Hollywood to meet film industry professionals such as producer Ralph Winter (X-Men, Fantastic Four).
We know that the hopefuls were totally inspired by their surroundings, as many of the film greats have been before them when visiting the Lake District. We wish all 10 finalists the best of luck for the competition final this weekend.
