Masterclass: One should make a film about that
A filmmaker can “film” any topic. Really? Karl Saurer will pursue the following questions in his masterclass: What are the triggers to start a cinematic project? How open is my attitude in the process of developing, in the phase of filming and the editing process? How much am I able to specify and how much can I accept from my team members? Do I get involved in the distribution?
