Independent filmmaker and National Film & Television School tutor Juliet Brown leads our second workshop, getting to grips with self-shooting techniques and planning for the structure of your 6 - 10 minute film. 

Juliet will cover the basic exercises in observational filmmaking, considering framing, moving shots and shooting for the edit, whether using a smart phone, a DSLR or any kind of hand-held camera.

After the workshop Juliet joined us for a Q&A session to answer your filmmaking questions. 


Juliet is a PhD by Film Practice candidate in UCL’s Anthropology Department and is also a visiting tutor on the Documentary MA course at the National Film & Television School. Formally, she was the Leading Tutor on ‘Summerdocs’ - an intensive twelve-week practical course also at the NFTS. 

Juliet’s past documentary films focused on people working through trauma, including Ecocide – ‘Voices from Paradise’ which premiered at Sheffield in the Green Award category and her graduation film, ‘Noah’s Canoe’, shortlisted for the RTS Post-Graduate Factual award. Her current PhD research examines if specific therapeutic methodologies can be enhanced by Virtual Reality.
