Film-making with the Raindance Festival is first of my 2013 hobbies


My theme for the year 2013 is ‘hobbies,’ and the first one is coming up.  I am going on a one-day film-making course with the group behind the Raindance Film Festival.  As well as technical aspects such as camera work, lighting and sound, I want to know more about screenwriting, directing, producing and of course editing.  I am a director manqué, and would like to direct a motion picture, even a short one.  When I watch movies, I do so with a director’s eye, looking to see how scenes have been put together, how continuity is achieved, and how the director has contrived to achieve the effects that we see.  I’ll probably write a brief note about it here afterwards.

There will be twelve such ‘hobbies’ during the year, at about one per month.  The second one coming up will be falconry.
