  1. To give you an idea of how the workshop functions: we met, had a short introduction. We all brought cameras (BMPCC was mine), Hank brought his camera, I believe it was a Canon C100 or 300. We went through everything you need to know to prepare for real-time filmmaking. I’d give it a 5 stars, but I’m giving it 4 because I attended the January workshop, and we were outdoors in Hyde Park. It was a little cold for my liking! But at the end I did learn what I came for.

  2. Love it! Like other people mentioned Hank is a really cool guy. I watched some of his real time films (Honey and Wine, The Job, The Ritual, Spooked) and was honestly impressed by what he could do in just a day! If you’ve ever made a feature film, you know how hard it is!

  3. If you’re new to filmmaking this workshop might be a bit intense. However, if you have a basic understanding and want to make a real time film (a story that unfolds in real time) I would recommend it.

  4. I attended this workshop in January, and in a nutshell it’s all about showing you what you need to make a feature film not only by yourself but also with whatever camera you already have! They encourage you to bring the camera you plan to use for your film; in my case, I brought a GoPro. Not only was Hank super cool about it, but when the workshop finished, he sent me a list of literally everything I need to make my filming process easier with a GoPro and get the best possible quality out of it! Some people just brought iPhones, and some brought DSLRs. I also love how it’s limited to four people! I feel like this way every time someone has a question (and people do) there’s plenty of time to go over it. I really enjoyed it and would highly recommend it to indie filmmakers.
    PS. I’m making my first real-time film this month.
