In conjunction with the Tribeca Film Festival and writer Geoffrey Fletcher, premium gin makers Bombay Sapphire are hosting two workshops this week called ‘Learn How to be a Film Director’ at the Bombay Sapphire Blue Rooms in Soho’s Zenna Bar.
If you’re free and fancy yourself as the next Christopher Nolan or Ridley Scott, the workshops run from 6 to 8:30pm tonight and Wednesday. There’ll be advice from London-based film director and lecturer Justin Trefgarne on the movie industry, producton, directing and, of course, there’ll also be cocktails. If you want to get the most out of the lecture you might want to lay off those until afterwards however! You can reserve tickets for these events via email at firstname.lastname@example.org – tickets to the events are £15 each.
Bombay Sapphire are also currently running a short film competiton, with the creators of five shortlisted entries being invited to produce their own short film to be screened at an exclusive event early next year. All you need to do to enter is to study the story idea from writer Geoffrey Fletcher and then provide a 500 word treatment, some images and a one minute video explaining how you would get it onto the screen. The competition closes on 1 August, and you can find out more about that here.
