From shorts to features

A half day course for filmmakers/film students

How do you make the difficult leap from making short films to make your first feature?


In this course we will look at building up your body of work, developing a professional profile, expanding your contacts and network and preparing yourself for making the leap to your first feature film. We will cover showreels, websites, social media, film festivals, agents and mentoring. We will discover how to aim high but remain realistic in a competitive industry and how to remain focused and determined, dealing with rejection and competition as you realise your vision and succeed in the film industry.

Debbie Howard set up Big Buddha Films fifteen years ago. She has made a slate of successful films, both fiction and documentary that have screened at film festivals worldwide.
