Are you looking for opportunities to practice your craft? Perhaps you’d like to try working on the other side of the camera? Or do you just LOVE CINEMA and want to get involved?


Set - Ready - Film is an accessible, inclusive workshop held at Film Plus each month, for emerging practitioners to learn through practice: from writing to directing, acting and cinematography.


It’s an opportunity to get the practice you need to be ready for where it counts: on set!


You can sign up, meet new people, shoot a short scene in under an hour, then share your rushes and learnings. You’ll get to see the same scene from other creative perspectives, get in there and try it out with the motto ‘fail early - fail often’.


'Seeing your work interpreted by others is gold for a writer, and the #setreadyfilm team have set up the most writer-friendly process I’ve experienced.' Julia
