Talk by film director Paul Dudbridge, plus Q+A discussion

Paul will talk about his background, how he started out, his work as a director/DP and working with visual effects. He’ll share what qualities a student needs to develop in order to go on and work successfully in the industry, and will introduce the new book he’s written, Shooting Better Movies: The Student Film-makers Guide, focusing on two short chapters Three secrets to film-making and 15 common traits found in student films. In the final Get Your Shit Together section of his presentation, Paul will recommend ways in which students can better their work, themselves and get the best from Uni and the industry.
