Greetings! Raindance is pleased to present Elliot Grove's LO-TO-NO BUDGET FILMMAKING weekend in London Saturday/Sunday 21/22 June.
This is the crash course where Guy Ritchie met Mathew Vaughn, and the course that has come to form the basis of independent film production in the UK and Europe.
What do Chris Nolan, Matthew Vaughn, Guy Ritchie and James Marsh have in common? All are former students of Elliot Grove's LO-TO- NO BUDGET FILMMAKING class and have gone on to write, produce and direct critically and commercially acclaimed films. BTW James won the two big prizes at Sundance this past January. Click the picture for more details.
Why waste four years and thousands at a pretentious film school when Elliot delivers clear and concise information that you can use to write, produce, direct and distribute your first feature film, within budgets of £1,000 - £100,000 - £1,000,000.
There's never been a better time to work in the British independent film industry. Everyone wants in. The cinemas want movies, TV, mobile telephone operators and websites all want movies. `
What's so special about this course?
For over 17 years, Elliot has run the Raindance Film Festival, and worked with writers, directors and producers that are now the leading lights in the British independent film movement. He has taught at leading universities in France, Denmark, Japan, Sweden and Canada, and unlike most other film instructors, writes and produces feature films himself, with three produced features, and four more currently in pre- production.
His students have gone on to shoot films that together have grossed more than $100,000,000 at the box office.
From your initial idea to final film, in just two days taking Elliot Grove's LO-TO-NO BUDGET FILMMAKING seminar, you will immediately learn and understand how to shoot, produce, direct, finance, market and distribute your film successfully and efficiently.
