Hey ‘Film Guerrillas’! Emily here Film Festival Fringe Coordinator, to let you know about this utterly incredible workshop that’s coming to the Isle of Man as part of this year’s Film Festival! We’re pretty excited!

The master class is running over the weekend of Sept 14th and 15th and brought to you by the one and only Chris Jones, a truly inspirational film maker, whom no doubt you’ve heard of through his world famous and best selling ‘Guerrilla Film Makers Handbook’ publication, giving a practical indepth and inspiring insight into how to be an indie film maker from a grass roots level.

“Guerilla Filmmakers Masterclass” work shop covers everything from story to budget to casting, along with camera, sound, post production and much more.

GMC3We are so lucky to have him coming over to the Island, to deliver one of his workshops which in the UK are normally over subscribed and sell outs! Thanks to our workshop sponsorship from PokerStars, The Isle of Man Film Festival is to offer the Masterclass at half of what the full price is in London. And of course the beauty of it is that you don’t have to travel off Island, and will be networking with other people interested in film right here on the Island.

What previous participants say about his workshops:-

This is not about the film industry, this IS the film industry. Be part of it!’ Tom Kerevan, Writer & Producer
‘Brilliant, awesome, just an inspiring weekend that has given me the confidence to finish my first feature film! Thanks Chris’ Bryony Disbury

‘I learnt more in 2 days than in 2 years worth of Media Studies!’ Stephen Pelly, Writer
‘Chris’ positivity and energy is outstanding. It’s an inspiring, refreshing, exhilarating week-end that rekindled the original spark and reminded me that all the sacrifices I made to become a filmmaker were worth it because indeed I never feel more alive than on a film set’ Stephanie Joalland, writer/director/producer at www.frenzyfilms.com
