A workshop with Hollywood director Marc Jobst. How do you approach a script and turn it into a film? How do you harness the individual talents within a film crew?
With so many creative departments in a production (casting, camera, design, costume, make-up, sound, editing, music, props, accounts), directing a film is sometimes a triumph of will over logic. At best, creativity works together to make a script sing, at worst it pulls apart into fractious individualism.
Sharing some of the obstacles, battles, triumphs and pure magic of the process of fiction film-making, this is a roll-your-sleeves-up discussion about driving a film onto the screen.
Marc Jobst started in theatre then worked as a producer/director at the BBC for 10 years. An independent director for 20 years, his recent credits include Daredevil, The Punisher, Luke Cage for Marvel Studios/Netflix; Tin Star with Tim Roth for Amazon/Sky; Hannibal with Mads Mikkelson and Laurence Fishburne for NBC, and most recently Berlin Station with Rhys Ifans, Richard Jenkins and Ashley Judd for Epix/Paramount. He is attached to a number of ongoing feature and TV films.
