Hi, this is Daniel Garber at the Movies for culturalmining.com and CIUT 89.5 FM.
Movies look so easy on the screen, but the trip from story to script to finished product is long and arduous. So how do you do it? How do you break into the film industry?
You may have heard of the festival called Raindance. Based in London, Raindance is a combination of movies, courses, lectures and networking, a veritable indie hub for aspiring actors, writers and filmmakers. It’s where many new players turn to learn the ropes of filmmaking.
Founded in 1993 it is the work of author and filmmaker Elliot Grove, who is in Toronto for two weeks of intensive panels on pitching, writing and selling films.
I spoke with Elliot Grove in studio at CIUT.
