CONTENT OF THE MASTER CLASS:
Fresh from success at FILMFESTIVAL DokLeipzig, where his documentary feature DYING BREED received its international premiere, Mick Catmull will be at Gauting to present his documentary masterclass.
The masterclass will combine practical exercises with detailed analyses of documentary exemplars. It will be built around the ideas and aspirations of its participants and cover the various stages of the film making process, from pitching, through production to presentation. Come prepared to actively participate. Some one-to-one advice sessions will be available.
The masterclass will include:
* How to develop the documentary mindset
* Examples from some masters of documentary
* A detailed examination of DYING BREED
* A look inside the documentary film maker’s toolbox
* Getting your film financed and screened
* Personalised career advice
Participants should leave the masterclass with a reinvigorated passion for documentary and a clearer idea of the steps they need to take to realise their own ambitions.
Mick started out in the late seventies as a documentary photographer in Britain’s industrial North East with the legendary Amber/Side Collective, pioneers of the British Workshop Movement. In 1986 he co-founded A19 Film & Video, which specialised in films documenting the social impact of industrial transition. Ten years later he relocated to the South West and established A38 Films, making films about fishing and farming, many of them on the remote Land’s End peninsula. Between 1997-2014 he was on the staff of the BBC. He is now back in the saddle with A38 Films and has spent a large part of the last three years making DYING BREED as a self-shooting lone film maker. Mick is an experienced teacher and a long time friend of IFFMA.
