We’ll learn about directing actors and the basics of film blocking.

Does the idea of watching two people having a conversation sound exciting? Probably not. You probably wouldn’t pay money to see that. And yet you do every time you go to the movies.

How have so many filmmakers managed to make those conversations exciting?

Well, one big way is with film blocking. Film blocking is the “precise staging of actors in a performance”. In terms of cinema, it’s where you place your actors in the frame.

It’s more than who stands where. Film blocking conveys the mood and tone you convey with what happens in the frame. We’ll use film blocking and mis-en-scene to bolster your knowledge so you can take everything you learn on set.

We’ll incorporate Film Theory, Film Criticism, and practical reasoning to show you how to get the most out of your efforts.

In this video you’ll learn about Space, Shapes, and Lines in film blocking. By considering these components, you’ll be able to block a scene between any subjects in a visually dynamic way that is loaded with subtext.
