ScreenDance Masterclass with Omari Carter

In partnership w/ Flatpack

As part of Screendance Unpacked, we’re delighted to be working with Omari ‘Motion’ Carter for this very special masterclass in which Omari will take participants on a journey from conception of idea, through to production, post-production and finally how to get the film out there once it’s made. 

This three-hour workshop is designed for choreographers and filmmakers who have an interest in screendance but little or no experience making it. The workshop will be split into two parts with a 90-min break: 

12-1.30pm: Exploring pre-production & production

3-4.30pm: Post-production & distribution 

This masterclass has very limited capacity so please book early to avoid disappointment. 

Note:  You will receive your Zoom link to the event 2 hours before it begins.
