Lesson Plan

The Gen Gap training workshop is a short video training workshop that is based on a five year training programme developed by the Institute of Directors (IDA) and the British Academy of Film and Television Arts. The Gen Gap programme is the first of its kind in the UK and the IDA and BAFTAs aim to create a new generation of film directors who work in this highly competitive market. This is achieved by providing them with a thorough understanding of the technical and creative processes used by the big studios and production companies and how they work together on a project.

This workshop is aimed at all genres of film from documentary to action and drama but the main focus of the workshop is on teaching directors the basics of film making. This is done by teaching them the basic skills used by production companies and filmmakers across the world to create films. These skills can then be applied directly to the industry in general. The workshops are designed to be informative and entertaining but also practical, with the students learning everything they need to know about film making.

The Gen Gap training workshops are split into four main sections: the Fundamentals, Storyboarding and Project Planning, Writing and Cast & Crewing and Post-production. There is no specific duration for each section, but each one should take you about five hours to complete.

The Fundamentals and Storyboarding sections will provide you with everything you need to know about the fundamentals of storyboarding. The main topics include what you will be working on, the format you will be using and how you will begin the project. These topics should be covered in an easy to understand manner and provide you with everything you need to get started.

The next section of the Gen Gap workshop will give you a brief introduction to the basics of film making and introduce you to the different types of filming. The topics covered include shooting, editing and visual effects. These topics will help you understand how each type of filming takes place and how they are done. Once you have gained a basic understanding of how each type of filming takes place the next section will provide you with the basic tools and equipment needed to start producing your own film.

The Writing and Cast and Crewing section will provide you with the information that you need to learn how to write scripts, use sound and use colour correctly. Once you have completed this section you should be able to write your own script and have the ability to produce excellent quality screenplays.

The last section of the Gen Gap workshop will cover the post-production process and how to edit and complete a successful film. A good tutorial will take a short term view at each of these areas and then go into detail on each area. It should show you how to apply the techniques learned to each aspect of the editing process.

The workshop is broken down into three parts, so if you are looking for the most up to date and detailed information about this form of film making it would be best to try to attend one or more of the workshops that were taught by the IDA. You will find that these workshops are very affordable and provide you with access to some of the best film making tutorials in the industry.

If you cannot afford to join one of the IDA workshops you can still benefit from the Gen Gap training workshop. It will not only help you learn how to create a professional looking finished film, but also help you to learn how to market the film and make the film available to a global audience. Many people struggle to understand why many of the top film makers choose to stay in the United Kingdom and how this helps to keep the creative side of the industry alive. When you have access to the IDA's website, you will have access to a whole host of other films which will give you the insight you need to the international scene.

By taking part in a Gen Gap workshop you will have the opportunity to develop new skills which will prove to be beneficial to you throughout your career. When you consider this part of your future, you will realise that it is one of the best ways of learning the craft of film making. and also the benefit of developing a network of other industry professionals. Once you are involved in the industry, you may even decide to start your own company and work together with others who share similar interests and experience.

If you are unsure whether you want to take part in one of the workshops offered by IDA, then do not hesitate to ask the IDA for information. They will help you plan the right workshop for you. You will not only benefit from their experience but also learn from their wisdom and knowledge.
