What you'll do

Write and shoot an indie film on the fly

Together we'll create a mini film you'll treasure. Over coffee, we'll discuss the basic steps of filmmaking and then dive right into brainstorming and creating a screenplay/storyboard for a video shoot. Once we have a solid concept, we'll hit the vibrant Kensington Market to shoot a short scene or montage with your phone. Whether you are on vacation and want a unique memento or you're a local and wish to get an express lesson on the basics of filmmaking, I'm excited to help you achieve these goals!

Eva is an expert and extremely accommodating of ideas and suggestions for shooting a fun little film. She took time to understand and know our objectives. Not only was she prepared when we arrived. She also communicated with us beforehand to learn more about us. Very thorough and fun!
