Video Critique/Online Mentorship Session

Send us a film you'd like constructive critique on. You will get the brain’s trust of both A&D sitting down together to watch through your film and take detailed notes. Then D will organise a video call with you and we’ll walk through your film step by step discussing improvements that can be made and any tips and tricks we can think of to help with these improvements. These sessions also include the benefit of being able to ask any questions you have about filmmaking while we practically walk through your work. (sessions last 60-90 minutes)
