This 5 week course will look at the comedy landscape and the different modes by which you can begin to build your own content and audience. Starting with discussing the comedy landscape - from self-producing and developing your own audience, to the traditional route of TV commissioning. We will delve into the logistics of production from casting to writing, pre production to the overarching idea. Through this course you will be able to learn about not only the theories of framing, sound, and directing actors, but you will be given hands on opportunities to grasp these techniques through workshops and feedback on your own work. Finally we will look at how one can begin to put their work forward through the use of different platforms such as Facebook, Vimeo, and Youtube and how these works can be submitted for competitions or developed for commissioners.
