On-line Pitching Masterclass for Vondel CS

It was great to work with this network of talented media and culture makers from Club CS3. In these 2 sessions participants got support and exchanged feedback on shaping and sharing the essence of their projects to make the impression and impact they want.

The camera was our friend!

Interactive session at RotterdamLab IFFR 2019

This year we introduced a new form to the professional side of the filmfestival. The 'Communicating with Impact' session for 60 emerging producers of the Rotterdam Lab was an interactive session with actors Emma Dingwall and Michael Krass. It was a lot of fun and a great learning experience!

We were so absorbed that we didn't even realize there was someone looming over us the whole time ;-)
