LFS Workshops presents:

Alexander Mackendrick on Filmmaking with Paul Cronin

Saturday 23rd & Sunday 24th Jan 2010

This two day workshop is an excellent opportunity for any film-maker who wishes to learn more about film-making from one of the masters of the medium. Alexander Mackendrick's practical approach serves as one of the best introductions to the craft of film-making available to film-makers today. The workshop is structured around the illustrated lecture MACKENDRICK ON FILM which features rarely seen footage of Mackendrick teaching and talking about his approach to film-making.  

Paul Cronin is the editor of ‘On Film-making : An Introduction to the Craft of the Director' by Alexander Mackendrick

"Paul's material is fabulous. There were some gems here that I hadn't heard expressed so succinctly before. He's amassed an extremely valuable tool for film-makers in general and I thank him for the work he's undertaken to share this valuable archive and insight with us." Lee Thomas, Head of Production & Development, Screen West Midlands
