Time & Location
About the Event
This event is now fully booked. To be added to the waitlist please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Throughout April WFTV will be hosting a special event series on upskilling, with talks, workshops and 1-2-1 clinics designed to develop your skillset. From focused insights on different fields and roles in the industry to how you can best collaborate with others and, get the most out of your project, there’s something for everyone whichever stage of your career you’re at.
In this interactive session, trailer editor and producer Fraser Bensted will be discussing the art of the trailer, why it is an important tool in a film’s marketing strategy and how it can position a film in different commercial markets, providing case studies as examples.
Fraser will also be sharing the important rules of a good trailer, including the key creative, commercial and budget considerations to keep in mind with your project.
There will also be time during the talk for members to have their questions answered by Fraser.
