As a filmmaker, it’s not uncommon to want to emulate your heroes or pay homage to the artists who inspired you. Yet, how do you begin to pursue your own path and evolve from these influences to discover your individuality as a creator? Join us as writer/director Sheldon Candis (LUV, WHEN THE LIGHTS ARE BRIGHTEST, REBEL) guides us on steps you can take to start developing your own voice and visual style as a filmmaker. We’ll discuss how to find and embrace your distinct voice and how this impacts all of your choices moving forward -- from how you design a frame, to where you place the camera -- as you establish your own unique visual style.

Join us on Wednesday, September 9th from 1:00pm-2:00pm PT in our virtual classroom. The webinar will be recorded for viewing for those unable to attend the live event.

This Advisor Q&A Live webinar is free.
